constant DDS-CAD MEP error with BSP

constant DDS-CAD MEP error with BSP

occasionally I try to play BSP sp just for the hell of it.

yet recently the game will not even launch without almost imediately crashing to desktop

the error report is always the same : DDS-CAD MEP error

i used this term on google and found that this is a very common error

on top of that no one seemed to have found a solution.

i have installed all patches and still the same.

So is there a solution to this? one that really works?

BSP doesn't matter to me that much, but its awefull that it wont even work correctly anymore.

Re: constant DDS-CAD MEP error with BSP

I have the same kind of trouble while running BSP : the game launch, I have access to the different menus (options, units info etc.) but as soon as I try to play (in whatever game mode - training, campaign or skirmish)n the game crash back to windows and when I asked for the information I have the DDS-CAD MEP error message. Irritating !!

But fortunately, I found a solution which work quite well for me : I switched the language option from "English (Original VO)" back to "English".
I did that and the game now run perfectly, in all modes.
I reverted beck to "English (Original VO)" and the game crashed one more time.
I then switched back once again to "English" and it work again nicely.

I also searched for some solutions to this bug on the french forums and...It just seem there was no such problem as nobody complained with that kind of bug.

Hope this help !

  • 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?
