    Ok... FIrst. I am not advocating for new Game Start Up music but I would not be unhappy if:

    A: I could find a setting that canceled its output
    B: That it was a different tune

    So far, everytime I hear it I envision a dark, deep, underground, and very lonely lair with a solo Engineer sitting behind a massive pipe organ plotting their revenge on other players. (think Phantom of the Opera)... <<--- what does this say about me?

    Anyway, just a little bored and thought I would start a thread and see if it generated thought on this or at least some comical responses. Have a good gaming day!

    I just skip over all the intro, which leaves me with a blank screen until the menu loads.

    Yep Yep.... Most assuredly that is what I do most of the time. Though, sometimes I will fire it up and walk away to the kitchen. It's pretty loud sometimes so it gets my attention, hence the thought of "Phantom of the Opera". Mainly, I really don't have a real issue with it. Sometimes though, I step away and it blares across my house when I am trying to wind down.. so while not a real deal, it would be nice to be able to kill start up music overall. But yeah, we really don't need a on/off option for EVERYTHING in SE.. LOL.
    But once again, it was mainly me just being goofy so I posted to see how people would react.

    Is there a way to make it not appear at all, just have it start up at the main menu?

    Add
    Code:
    -nosplash -skipintro
    to the Steam launch options. Removes both the splash screen and the intro.

    (ps, I'm hoping I'm remembering the correct arguments as I'm at work and can't doublecheck... :p )

    Go to Space Engineers in Steam, click on the gear at the far right entitled "Manage", the click "Properties." About halfway down the Properties page click on "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS..." STick this in: "-skipintro -nosplash" (without the quotes. You're golden. (Kudos to @Roxette for this little jewel.)
