The process of disabling the Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord startup title screen is pretty simple. First, head into the Videos section of the Bannerlord folder by following this chain:

  • ~steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\Modules\Native\Videos

If you’re having trouble locating this, follow these steps: Go to the game’s Steam Library page. Click on the cog icon to bring up another menu, and select the “Manage” sub-menu from there. Choose “Browse Local Files” and you can work your way to the Videos folder.

Inside this folder you’ll find a file named TWLogo_and_Partners.ivf. At the end of this file, add an extra piece of text. So, for example, rename it to TWLogo_and_Partners.ivfdontplay. Hit Enter or save the file and back out.

Load up Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord and you should now be title-sequence free. This will help you get into the game quicker than before.
