[fix for] Crash at launch, caused by intro animation

i got the problem!

but i solved it!! lol

set

-novid

in your launch options.

to get there,

right click the icon in your steamgames list,
click properties,
click "set launch options..."
type "-novid"
click "OK"

this causes it to skip the movie and avoid the problem!!!

my guess is that the video uses a codec that doesn´t like some soft/hardware configurations
and thus breaks the launch of the game.

(i also use this on TF2 to get a quicker launch)

***this is a answer to a problem in another threat, but that threat hasn't got a descriptive name, so now its more easy to find it when you had the same problem and was looking for a fix***
