I was playing ME2 fine till last night. This morning I received a strange error as shown below. Before it was about new7_en.jpg. I have not changed any settings etc betweem last night and tonight.

Once I click on OK it goes away. Still if someone could provide a resolution would be much appreciated.

Normally this kind of error only comes up with 16 bit applications (caused by a space in the filename) - never seen it with a game launcher for a modern game... – kalina Apr 18 '13 at 19:01
is this the steam or the origin version? If its on steam, try verifying the integrity of your steam cache? – l I Apr 18 '13 at 20:42
@spartacus I purchased it retail. It has asked neither to install Steam or Origin. – ヴァイシャリ Apr 19 '13 at 6:26
@hammar Could you post it as an answer? The files that "suddenly" got missing were news5_en.bmp.bmp, news7_en.bmp, news9_en.bmp. – ヴァイシャリ Apr 19 '13 at 6:52

Since the missing files are just BMPs (most likely textures), you can probably silence this error by making some dummy images in Paint and saving them in the locations specified by the error messages.

Judging by the path names, I'm guessing these are for the news feed in the main menu, so replacing them by dummies probably won't make any noticeable gameplay difference.

Since this worked so far I am marking your answer. Thanks +1 – ヴァイシャリ Apr 19 '13 at 12:56
