    Well, I'm sitting here watching my browser poll my copy of fr24feed on :8754 for the radarview data. So if you can get to that, assuming you have traffic they will show.

    Are you certain you are receiving aircraft data?

    It appears to be looking at http://<IP>:8754/tracked.html for the information.

    stop the app, run it WITHOUT service, and look at the output as it runs for lines such as --net

    By rights you should enter commands to be passed to it in the :8754 config page additional arguments field if missing.

    You should see similar to
    Connecting to Generic receiver via (exe://mr-dump1090.exe --raw --net

    If it only has --raw, the enhanced outputs will not be switched on

    (See visual log checks)

    Thanks

    --net was missing. Added it in the arguments of :8754 and restarted. Dump1090 map is now shown on ip address:8080 web page.
    BUT radar view still refuses to work.

Everything appears to run ok except radar view. Does the fr24 feed software automatically have dump1090 output to port 8080 if this is required.

    Doug, you are doing it wrong. Skip the "http" portion and just type in your radar receiver's IP address or its hostname. i.e. like this:

    192.168.1.27

    or like this (As long as your radar is configured to have a hostname and is being stored in your local DNS):

    myradar

    I am not sure if you can type in a special port number using a :8080 or :3227 appended to the end, assuming that your box is not configured for port 80 web access.

    Also I run a raspberry pi3 to feed. Viewing radar view on a laptop on same wifi network and entering the ip address of raspberry pi3 does not show local data, but tells me local data failed 4 times in a row and will be disabled. Screenshot below. Any help appreciated.

    This shows my local planes in red, but only shows icons if I hack Firefox to allow cross-site scripting.

    I was able to load a few OUT files. I found some USA outlines that show the 50 states and the airport runways. These are on Yahoo's Planeplotter Group download page. The quasi-link is h t t p s : / / groups [dot] yahoo [dot] com/neo/groups/planeplotter/files but you have to join the Planeplotter group for that to work. I found my outlines under "USA Outlines" directory. With these changes (browser hacks plus the uploading of about 7 OUT files) I have a reasonably useful Radar View screen. I still cannot load any of the pre-defined outlines that are offered on the "?" screen that has the 4 blue buttons to click.
    Oh there it is, the view dropdown. I couldn't locate the link to it so wasn't sure it existed.

    Actually looking at the links, or lack thereof. I'm not entirely sure it's still being supported/promoted

    Legacy link? Sure.. but can't seem to find a live path to it.

    Radar mode does not work. I have a Flight Radar 24 receiver on my local network. So I entered its IP address. But as soon as I turn on Local traffic, the website warns me that it will switch to an insecure site. That's ok. And this site loads and I can type in my local receiver IP address.

    But what's not okay is that both browsers I have tried obviously block the cross site scripting requests. Both Chrome and Firefox neglect to show the icons on the right side (settings, +/-, ?) and only show 5 blank boxes. The local aircraft list shows up correctly (and my local aircraft). But none of the preset addons will load: "World Airports" and "World cities" for example. Clicking those blue boxes bring up a blank error message that I have to close.

    I checked the logging on Firefox and it shows the security errors. Here's what shows up when I click one of those links:
    "Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at H t t p : // www flightradar24 com/static/json/radarview/cities.json?ts=414895. (Reason: CORS preflight channel did not succeed)."

    In my research, I was able to hack in support for the missing icons on the right side of the screen. I am using the CORS Everywhere 20150910-1410 addon by spenibus and the Toggle Mixed Active Content 2.0 addon. These are pretty heavy-duty plugins that I don't recommend others use.

    But back to the problem... Radar view does not work for me. I am only guessing that a localhost system would work, but this one is throwing some intense security-related issues for modern browsers. Is there a workaround? If not, I don't get a very nice view of the radar. I get the planes, and the list of ones my system is tracking locally, but no nearby airports for reference. Can someone at FR24 fix the site to prevent access to the https portion completely? I think that is the problem, combined with the local IP lookup.

    My only guess is to use a proxy server on localhost that redirects to the FR24 box, assuming localhost queries work. Or maybe I can suck in the cities and airports using a file? Help!

    (Also, there is another bug. The site will not switch back to the secure mode. There's no setting that switches back. Even turning off Local Traffic does not do this as expected.)

    EDIT: THE SYSTEM SEEMS TO BE FIXED NOW, WITH A LOT FEWER ERRORS! SKIP TO PAGE 42.

    The BaseStation.ini is a plain text file. It contains all the settings that control how the BaseStation software is presented to the user.

    The BaseStation software is freely available to download and installing it creates a default ini file which you can edit either directly or through the BaseStation software interface.

    Radar View can refer to the ini file to define outline and waypoint colours.

    I'd recommend downloading the BaseStation software to create a default ini file. Then experiment with the outline and waypoint settings. Closing BaseStation will save the settings and overwrite the ini file.

    And as suggested, Bones' website is a useful source of help:

    Since he posted his question in the FR24/Radar View thread, I suspect he wants to get the file format for basestation.ini so he can set it up for FR24 usage.

    Can you not set the colours you want in the display settings tab. Most of the colours can be set here as described in the basestation reference manual pdf.
