Trouble with Microsoft Games for Windows LIVE and BSP Online Mode

Trouble with Microsoft Games for Windows LIVE and BSP Online Mode

I have bought BSP for my son.
Now I have following problem:
When I install BSP, BSP install without an error-message and starts after the installation. Then BSP ask me about my LIVE-Account. Thats Ok the Account should be downloaded without a problem. And now begins my problem: After downloading the account, I get thwe message from Games for Windows that a new version is to download. I press to download the update. The download goes on without a message and now BSP plays a movie and plays endless, if not press any button. I have make different kinds of installations.
1. Installation from DVD and update Games for Windows LIVE from the Internet
2. Install GfW first (akt. Version) and then install BSP.
3. Install without Virusscanner
and so on.

Can somebody help me and my son?

Re: Trouble with Microsoft Games for Windows LIVE and BSP Online Mode

What are the specs for your system? First place I'd start is to see if your PC is capable of running BSP. I like this site called "Can you run it?" and here's the link:  It will tell you right away if your system can play it or just about any other new game out there. Also, are you on a laptop? BSP is notorious for having laptop problems because it wasn't fully supported on that platform.

Last thing, when you update GFWL, does a progress bar show up? The odd thing is that it will shoot up to like 95% complete almost instantly, but then take what seems like forever to finish up. Be patient, it's just a weird quirk of GFWL.

Quick thing I need to point out Agent X, is that Can You Run It isn't that accurate on the bar that says if you can run it or not, I found it more accurate if you compared the specific details--otherwise the little bar could say you can play it, and you really can't.

  • alantay11 : Is there a way to fill up the empty ship slots when using SurgeonSasha's Yamato? Or is it my game not showing the models?
  • Axis_Crusher : Thanks, but we already implemented both ships in the Advanced Warfare Pack a few months ago...

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
