I have the steam version and german localization of the game, but I could never watch the intro in game found in the Steam\SteamApps\common\Divinity - Original Sin\Data\Localization\German\Video folder except for the logo and the telescope one.

I wondered if there was an intro at all and it actually is in the folder, but every time I start a new single player game I get to the character creation, then to the Cyseal loading screen and immediately to the beach without intro.

First I thought it's pretty old-school with no explaining except the book in the inventory laugh Then I assumed it's because I don't had installed the Bink Video Player, but also after installing it, the intro wasn't shown after starting a new game.

What could be the reason for this issue?

Not having the Bink video player shouldnt cause this issue atleast. Are you able to see the movies from the folder itself?
From the getgo I am not sure what this could be, therefore could you send us a from our support tool?
It can be found here:
Simply run the tool and click generate report, then send this to with a small description.

Thank you

I just sent an e-mail to the support with the attached.

Yes, I can watch the videos, when I start them from the folder itself. Though they stutter pretty much (with latest Bink Video Player). But unfortunately I'm also a victim to the crash-on-saving-issue, which should be adressed first smile
