Error: Equipment Database: Could not find equipment.xml!

Post by Hank2000 » Sun Jul 01, 2007 8:12 pm

OK,

strange that I can find this error message all over Google, but not in this forum!?

Well I have mandriva 2007.1 Free and compiled TMW with openGL quite well but when I start I get the above message!
How can I get rid of this and start playing to find out if TMW is right for me???
And why do I get connection time outs ALL THE Time when trying to update???

The "Could not find equipment.xml!" message appears because the update process is incompleted. Fix the problem with the updater and this error will disappear, too.

The reason for the updater timing out could be that
a) the updateserver is offline (what isn't the case while I am writing this post)
b) you can't reach it because of network problems on your side
c) you have the wrong updateserver in your config. Are you maybe using an old version of tmw (older than 0.0.22.2)?. Check the config.xml in your homefolders subdirectory /.tmw. The option "updatehost" should have the value "http://updates.themanaworld.org"
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

well the version I compiled is the last one 0.0.23 !
problems on my side of the network in which way???
I have a D-Link router running with a small firewall can that be a problem to connect???
but I can connect to other servers like bzflag or crossfire pretty well!?
and strange is: my config.xml is always empty???



:cry:

Is there anything interesting in your log file? It's stored at ~/.tmw/tmw.log.

When your config.xml is empty tmw might have no permission to write to your user directory.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

Hi there,

So. then there s nothing else I can do???
It compild right, I have sound now, always update connection timeout and when I want to play game closes with the above error message!!!
even without update!!!
Pioneers works, Crossfire works, bzflag works, so cant be really a problem on my network side I think!?
and it s the latest version 0.0.23.too!
Any ideas left or do I have to quit with Mana World???
And I did set any permission available even those which arent necessary at all!!!!

Well, you could follow this guide to get the resource files without using the updater. This should allow you to play until the next update is released (then you have to do it again):
http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopic.php?t=2617

But it would be better to find out why tmw is unable to find the update server and fix the problem.

Hm, strange again! :(


I recompiled again, with everything exact the same, and now it works, with updating and everything!
So I don t see where the fault was on MY side, I think something with the update process on the server was wrong!!!
But I DO have a problem with opengl, I can only play with SDL support, happens to some games, think the implementation in Mandriva 2007 isn t that good!
