Hi,
I'm using FlightGear 3.4. Using and iPad. Mobatlas.xml can not be loaded according to stuff that goes by on a console window. Seems there must be a bug in the xml?? I'm using the most recent app, 1.5v it think and the .xml file and command line that was e-mailed by the app. Any ideas. Oh yes. Slackware 14.1 and Slackware 14.0. I don't thing it is the operating system.

I'm using FG-3.4 on a Slackware machine. The mobatlas.xml throws an error:

Unable to load the protocol configuration file: Unrecognized data type 'hidden' at /usr/share/FlightGear/Protocol/mobatlas.xml,
line 10, column 154

Here is some of the code -- line 10 is at the bottom of all of this:

(*************************************)

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<PropertyList>
<generic>
<output>
<line_separator>newline</line_separator>
<var_separator>:</var_separator>

<chunk>
<name>speed</name>
<format><input type="hidden" id="atmailCSRF" name="atmailCSRF"

(***************************************)

Any ideas?? type="hidden" is used all through this file.

Thanks

i'm almost wondering if it may be a line ending problem... the error message states column 154 which is waaaaay over there --->>>

where'd you get the file from? i don't find it in my 3.4 or 3.7 installation areas...

My editor "touched" the file in question in an effort to debug the .xml file. Turns out I don't have a clue as to how it works. So here is the error thrown again with and unblemished file the app sent me:

Unable to load the protocol configuration file: Unrecognized data type 'hidden'
at /usr/share/FlightGear/Protocol/mobatlas.xml,
line 13, column 150

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<PropertyList>

<generic>

<output>
<line_separator>newline</line_separator>
<var_separator>:</var_separator>

<chunk>
<name>speed</name>
<format><input type="hidden" id="atmailCSRF" name="atmailCSRF" value="QU51K1B5UUwvNGo0M0luU0hHMkFkS3lmaDdXcmNVZjJmaitDbTFZPTpOVEEzT1RVM05qZ3g=" />%f</format>
^ The carrot is col 150 of line 13 (or I hope my post will show that)

Does that help any??? Yes no??

P.S My initial problem was the file would not load. It was a linux permissions issue - and I fixed that. Now it seems to be an .xml file coding issue.
Tnx again

yeah, helps a little bit... i had to quote and then count characters in that line to confirm... it is pointing there because that's the close of the <input ... /> block...

where did you get this "mobatlas.xml" file from? what package did it come with? it doesn't appear to be a part of flightgear AFAICT...

FWIW: you do realize that the last post before yours was Feb 2014, right? i just realized that this wasn't a new topic but that your post was the first one on the third page...

I know this comment doesn't help with regard to the app you are talking about but have you tried Phi?

Quick instructions:

1. Add the following to your startup options:
Code: Select all
--httpd=8080


2. Open a browser on the iPad and go to URL:

Code: Select all
http://192.168.0.1:8080


Where 192.168.0.1 is replaced with the IP address of the computer running Flightgear. Routers usually show IP addresses of connected devices.

3. Switch to the Map tab for a moving map.

It does require 3.6 RC or 3.7 though.

I don't know what 3.6 RC is.

I did get a moving map to work with http://mycomputerip:8080/gui/map -- very cool!

Still no luck with mobatlas.xml

Will try Phi

Huh?
3.6 RC is the release candidate. Like a beta release.

OK! I have 3.4v. I'll see how difficult it will be to compile. May take me some time.

No, you don't need to compile.
Download 3.7 from here: http://download.flightgear.org/builds/nightly
Choose the 3.7.0, not the -full.
Use git or svn (FGMEMBERS or ADDON) to get planes! Git or SVN (FGDAATAWSUBMOULES or FGDATA)
For help with MEMBERS AND WSUBMODULES go to thejabberwocky.net for help
Regards, have a nice time exploring 3.7

I still get the same "type" error. I have compiled and upgraded to FG-3.6 release candidate. I could not find the tar balls for RC FG-3.7 Still using Linux Slackware. I don't have any Microsoft Operating Systems, at this time on any of my computers so can't use the nightly compiles. Guessing maybe an old linux dependency???? that interprets .xml code???? I' not much of a programmer here.

what do you mean you still get the same "type" error?

are you still trying to use that mobatlas.xml file?

if so, why? you don't need it since you can use a browser and the Phi interface, do you??

Same error as before:
Unable to load the protocol configuration file: Unrecognized data type 'hidden'
at /usr/share/FlightGear/Protocol/mobatlas.xml

I was just trying to use the iPad app with all the "steam gauges" and moving map.
Yes I was trying to get mobatlas.xml to run, but no cigar there. Mobatlas.xml just will
not load because of the type error.

You are right, FlightGear's own moving map works perfectly with my iPad (or any browser)
and is very cool. I shall remain happy with that.

Hi

I've successfully installed FG Map on my iPad mini and linked it up to my copy of Flightgear. It's a great app, well done for writing this. All is working except for the air speed indicator which remains on zero. Are there changes required to mobatlas.xml to get this to work?

FG Map version 1.5
FG Version 2106.1.1
OS Ubuntu 14.04

Regards

Mike
