I tried to google the results and only answer was this from the steam forum thread
It doesn't seem as if you can skip them in any simple manner. You can remove the unskippable intro movies in question (located under SteamApps\common\Hitman Absolution\runtime\ui\menu\videos\boot), but this comes with a headache. First off, the game minimizes and a prompt is shown about a read error. After you click OK the game is maximized once more but with a few issues. A few times only a black screen is seen (fixed by ALT+TAB to desktop then back again) and other times the game and Steam Overlay will conflict, which makes it unable to close the Steam Overlay if you happen to open it, ergo it because impossible to close the game itself.
Removing the skippable intro movie (the one with 47's massive face) didn't at all seem to work, always crashing my game completely on launch. Note: I assume that the skippable intro movie is the one located underSteamApps\common\Hitman Absolution\runtime\videos_cutscenes\setup\ui\title _intro.platformspecific-video.
I've also tried to replace the movie files in question with completely empty files as well as a single blank bink video. Neither of these solutions worked (both got the read error) and I simply think that they're verifying the checksum of the files to match the name of the file. Because why else would you have this folder setup:
Code:- videos - boot - legal_lines_with_g2_dts_logo.bik > 07E46E52DE4E67FB26C726C995032AE1.pc_binkvid - legallines_console.bik > 0C9CEB64A7F631884FE95EFE4C5EB837.pc_binkvid - legallines_pc.bik > AF079CC4DBE8E91C0EA5E8400EA12E95.pc_binkvidThe intros seems to be hardcoded and the game is adamant on wanting them there... It's really ridiculously annoying, though disabling the overlay and simply living through the Read Error prompt seems to be the best option yet.
I am not satisfied with this result so if Nick could lighten up or someone else with magical fingers...
