How to start the Hughes 500?

21 May 2017 19:24 #34206 by sanni
Hi all,
downloaded the newest version of the Hughes 500.
When I try to start the engine nothing happens. Doesn't matter if I try '}' or 'i' or the autostart in the menu.
There is only an error message bo105.nas line 1285. (nil used in numeric context)
Can you help me?

Hi Sanni - I started it using } and did not see the Nasal error relating to the bo105 dependency you mention, but am getting a Nasal error in a KAP140 dependency...

Mine is recently downloaded too, but we seem to have different things going on. Very strange. Lets look into it.

I get the KAP140 error too. ...but doesn't matter (I think)...

OK, I had a look at bo205.nas - it seems to be a generic Nasal file for helis. I could not see the code for creating turbine objects, but I don't know very much about helicopters in FG and it may work differently. But I'm fairly certain that's where your problem is.

Interestingly, my copy of the aircraft has two bo205.nas files - one is marked OLD, and has over 1300 lines of code. The one NOT marked old has less than 1000, and doesn't have the dodgy line of code that your console threw up, so I'm guessing somehow you've got hold of an older version of the aircraft.

Here's a link to my Dropbox and the version I downloaded for Saturday's flight. Delete the whole folder of your old Hughes 500 and replace it with this one and see what happens: drive.google.com/file/d/0B_7aoOeHI0KacEJ...OGs/view?usp=sharing

It's a 50MB download (!!) for some reason, so put the kettle on.

I trimmed all the code out off the bo105.nas file that we don't use.

Yep - pretty sure Sanni has somehow got hold of an older version. Mine works fine - I even managed to fly it a short distance!! ;)

I downloaded my Hughes yesterday evening after the flight.
With a different size your heli works. Many thanks :)
