1. I find the intro movie annoying, can I turn it off?
Yes, you can. Browse to the folder where you installed Emperor, open the file "Emperor.ini". The very last line in that file is "PlayIntroMovie=yes", change that into "PlayIntroMovie=no" and you won't see the movie again when you start the game.
