What's it do, Ben? I mean, what's the benefit of the new scripts? Couldn't find out from the download page.

As it happens, I was flying the 500D in the weekend, so nice timing for me!

 

Now, having figured out these scripts are sasl, and managed to find a 64 bit sasl plugin here (thanks Ben), I put the scripts in a "scripts" folder in the 500D folder (where the acf is) and things seem to be happening. The rotor swings lazily in the breeze, the doors open etc. However, the rotor doesn't actually spin when flying other than lazily in the breeze. It flies OK, the engine noise is good, but the rotor doesn't spin. Am I missing something?

x-Plane10 21b2. 64 bit

I think you meant to say Gizmo, not SASL. :)

There is a possibly I have been slightly confused :P I see it's LUA script, which is used by sasl and gizmo plug-ins. Gizmo is just way more awesome :)

Lazy me.  :mellow:

 

Some of that I can clear up, some of it might be XP10 doing weird things to the airframe.

 

There is definitely some tidying to do for the scripts. Thanks for testing it.

I spent some time yesterday cleaning these scripts up a tiny bit.

 

There are still some artifacts but I don't think any of them belong to script bugs anymore.

 

 

Fixes:

- Scripts are updated to work with the current version of Gizmo64.

 

- You no longer end up with a rotor blade sticking out at some weird angle.

 

- Door speed was tweaked a tiny bit.

 

- Radio stack is still broken.

Ben, 

 

this is what I get from the h500_rotor.lua script. the controls are incredibly jittery. This does not happen with  the rotor in "demo" mode... any idea??

 

this is how it looks

EDIT

 

OK, just found a way around, just commented out line 91 as 

      --dref.setFloat( xcdr_rotorPositionDegressMainMuted, 0 )

seems to remove the jitter in the controls... not sure what that code did but the heli is perfectly flyable now!!

 

file is attached.

The download link for scripts is no longer valid. I have a working copy that I am happy to share it here as I see many requests but no place to download, however, i am uncertain if that's okey?

I am sure rest have figured out that gizmo64 download can be found under gizmo64.com

I want nothing to do with these.

Please DO NOT contact me for maintenance support, upgrades, bugs, problems, visual glitches or ANYTHING to do with them.

I erased them for a reason.
