Remove the EA/Maxis Intro and start on the galaxy screen!

Davo's Released Mods, and Some Unreleased. These are made for Galactic Adventures with patch 1.5.1, but some of them may still work on Core Spore. No harm can come from trying, as long as you've made a backup.

Seriously, I was so sick of jamming the escape key trying to skip as much of the intro as possible.

Yeah...um, that's because access is denied. Make sure you're logged on as an administrator, and that the text editor you're using has administrative privileges. If you don't own the computer in question, ask the owner about accessing files which you don't have privileges to overwrite.

Also, make a backup of the files before you edit them.

Well it isn't the command prompt you'd need to run as an admin...

...okay, just upload the files and provide links here. I'll add the tweak for you, and send them back, okay? :3

Thanks Davo. Worked like a charm in the GOG version, but with the GOG version I did the edits in the DataEP1\Config folder.
I didn't try it in the Data\Config folder since your instructions did mention EP1.
