Helix Blog Option image not shown in a RSS

Featured Lock Resolved Bug

We use an app creator with Joomla! and RSS and always it´s ok the text and image. In our new proyect we migrate a Joomla! 1.5 to 3.8.5 and we want to use in the new articles your "helix blog option". The problem is that we can´t see an image in the RSS feed and in old Joomla! articles yes. It´s strange: http://www.ordiziakoazoka.eus/besteak/berriak?format=feed&type=rss

The creator capture it´s attached.

yes default core RSS system doesn't load images from Helix Blog Options, only from default sections of Articles.
Probably it request extra custom code to improve it or you have to use addcional RSS component which have Helix image support.

I have been struggling for days to try and make this work ... below is the original Joomla code that produces the RSS feed. It would be amazing if one of your coding gurus would be able to suggest how I could customise this to use the helix feature image instead of the intro_image.

This is the Joomla file

protected function reconcileNames($item)
// Get description, intro_image, author and date
$app = JFactory::getApplication();
$params = $app->getParams();
$item->description = '';
$obj = json_decode($item->images);
$introImage = isset($obj->{'image_intro'}) ? $obj->{'image_intro'} : '';

if (isset($introImage) && ($introImage != ''))
$image = preg_match('/http/', $introImage) ? $introImage : JURI::root() . $introImage;
$item->description = '<p><img src="' . $image . '" /></p>';

$item->description .= ($params->get('feed_summary', 0) ? $item->introtext . $item->fulltext : $item->introtext);

// Add readmore link to description if introtext is shown, show_readmore is true and fulltext exists
if (!$item->params->get('feed_summary', 0) && $item->params->get('feed_show_readmore', 0) && $item->fulltext)
// Compute the article slug
$item->slug = $item->alias ? ($item->id . ':' . $item->alias) : $item->id;

// URL link to article
$link = JRoute::_(ContentHelperRoute::getArticleRoute($item->slug, $item->catid, $item->language));

$item->description .= '<p class="feed-readmore"><a target="_blank" href ="' . $link . '">' . JText::_('COM_CONTENT_FEED_READMORE') . '</a></p>';

$item->author = $item->created_by_alias ?: $item->author;
