How to Remove Opening Cinematic
If you're sick of being deafened by the cinematic that the retail copy gives you, then it's easy to fix.
Go to your installation directory (default is C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Warhammer Online - Age of Reckoning) and create a new folder. I called mine deleted cinematics.
Move video.myp and vo_english.myp into the new folder (or you could simply delete them) and voila! No more intro.
There doesn't seem to be anything you can do about the first 3 bits that come up, but that's no hardship imo.
