Trouble trying to create fire from Effects in FX menu set

Hi there folks I'm having an issue trying to create fire FX to emit from any mesh object in maya nurbs or polygon, I'm getting this warning and errors:

 

// Warning: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2022/scripts/others/fireEffect.mel line 411: Specified default value '85' is out of the range of minValue and maxValue; defaultValue ignored. //
// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2022/scripts/others/fireEffect.mel line 450: Invalid flag '-n' //
// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2022/scripts/others/fireEffect.mel line 450: Unable to parse command argument list.

 

Any help in resolving this would be great thanks.

Is working for me here in 2022.3. But instead of using that old stuff in Maya, I would recommend using the BF graph. 

You will get a nicer-looking fire, and more controllable as well.

Thanks, I just upgraded to 2022.3 as well and now it works, also I'll have to study up on bifrost to learn how to create a descent fire.
