Here's a nice little trick for you! In your RCT3 install directory you'll find a folder called "Movies" (C:\Program Files\Atari\RollerCoaster TycoonŽ 3\Movies). Have a look in there and you'll find the logos for Frontier and Atari. Make a backup copy of these, and put them in a safe place. Now simply replace the originals with .wmv files that you've created (make sure they're named exactly like the others, and having the same resolution would help as well), and watch when you start up the game :)

Cool tip. Maybe if I made a twisted version of Atari's intro clip (heh-heh) then I'll be tempted to watch it instead of just skipping through the intros.

It'd be awesome if someone could re-make the intro from RCT1/2.

Hey there, I'm glad people are having fun with this... I'm gonna change mine to opening up to "Agent Peep", and some of my videos :D

mazeinies - the 5 files in the folder are:

Atari.wmv
AtariLogo_640x480_15fps.wmv
AtariLogo_800x600_30fps.wmv
FrontierLogo_640x480_15fps.wmv
FrontierLogo_800x600_30fps.wmv

Be careful ;)
