Upgrading Mi8 Helios profile from 1.2.16 to 1.5?


Recommended Posts


I am interested in setting up the Mi8 Helios profile by Cap Zeen but have read that different ‘default.lua’ and ‘Export.lua’ files are required for DCS World 1.2.16 and 1.5. Is it just a matter of overwriting these two files with the ones for 1.5 to ‘upgrade’ Helios profiles from 1.2.16 to 1.5 or is there other things that are required? I want to set up the Mi8 Helios profile now but if it is a complicated process to upgrade might wait for DCS World 1.5 to be out in the ‘main’ release form first.

There is no upgrade other than making sure you have the export.lua that is needed for 1.5. The actual profile just works. For example my A10 Profile works in 1.2, 1.5 and 2.0 with no mods required

Don't worry mate... just take your time and read Capt Zeen's instructions carefully. I installed this profile last night and it's straight forward enough (not complicated)... Relax!


The files you need to be concerned with are the Export.lua and Default.lua - for each of these, Capt Zeen has provided two specific versions, one for DCS 1.2 and the other for DCS 1.5.


When you upgrade DCS from 1.2 to 1.5, you will have a completely new and independent installation for DCS 1.5.


This is where you should use the specific files mentioned above and copy/paste them into the correct location inside your DCS 1.5 folder.


If you're sticking with DCS 1.2 then use those designed for that version and simple disregard the others.


Hope you're OK with this advice - any problems, shout up!
