Menu Background Disabler
Deutscher Thread
What does it do?
This file replaces the menu-file that is loaded when entering the startmenu of X3:TC
It removes everything except the starfield background. Reduces Loading Time.

It doesn't overwrite files, if you want to have your original Menu file back just delete this file.

To reduce startup-time it's also recommended to disable the intro.
Add "-skipintro" to your destination-path of the X3TC Shortcut to do so.


Screen with MBgD + Cmod



For the cautious people out there (because of the filesize):
MD5 checksumm= 0342ad0fd8381a4e993cb63352e3d92d
virus free, checked with avast!
Link down? Problems? Ask here.


Edit: replaced outdated x1tp with working xdownloads link. X2-Illuminatus

How exactly should I add the "-skipintro" to the shortcut? I tried just adding it to the end, but Windows complains that it's not valid.

Select the shortcut-> properties, that will show you this dialog

behind the quotes... however this is a (german) XP, don't know how this looks in Vista
The thing behind the skipintro is the cursor not a character Wink

Cheers Killjaeden - I was being dense. Now my game loads in seconds!

Wish someone could do the same for ingame loading but I guess that's not really possible.

Something you should know, none of these options seem to work with Steam installed versions of TC...

If they can be, I cannot find how, not through normal target field nor through the advanced launch options in steam. Sad

Although the mod itself works fine Very Happy

For those worried about such things (even on S&M!), this start-up tweak or the skipintro adjustment will not themselves make your vanilla game (from a DVD install at least) to show **modified**.
