I LOST MY DOWNLOAD LINK, SERIAL NUMBER OR OTHER ORDER INFO
As of July 1, 2019 we no longer use serial numbers unless you purchased from a third party vendor (Simmarket, PCAviator, etc).
To re-download, simply visit our new shop: https://shop.flightbeam.net/
Click "Account" and login, you will see all your downloads for your products.
If you don't see your products there and you've purchased it in the past from us, here are some reasons why this could be:
- You may have purchased them with a different email
- You haven't migrated your old orders yet
If you purchased anything from us before July 1, 2019, we have sent you an account invitation email which automatically merged your previous orders to our new store. If you did not receive this email, please email Support@flightbeam.net with as much information as possible.
I see default KSFO buildings, duplicate buildings, or terrain anomalies
These are symptoms of a duplicate/conflicting AFCAD file that pre-existed in your sim. In the Flightbeam Manager, go to the main page and click the "Troubleshooting" tab. The Manager will then find possible conflicting files and you will be able to disable them directly.
Jetways do not work
KMSP uses SODE jetways. In order to use SODE jetways, you must first have SODE installed: http://sode.12bpilot.ch/
Once SODE is installed, be sure to turn on SODE option in the Flightbeam Manager. To get the jetway to connect, you can use Tab+S to open the SODE menu and select the gate... or if you have GSX simply use your GSX services shortcut (Ctrl + F12).
Please note that SODE is an addon created by another developer, our support with SODE issue is limited since we did not create the software. For more in depth SODE support, visit the SODE support forum: https://sode.12bpilot.ch/?page_id=442
Severe flickering/flashing of textures
This happens when using ChasePlane cameras, or looking around in Avatar mode. If using ChasePlane, find your Cameras.cfg (back it up first). Change all instances of "ClipMode = Minimum" to "ClipMode = Normal" and save the file. Restart your sim.
Hard/incorrect coastline edge around 28R/28L threshold
This is caused by FTX Norcal. Unfortunately that product includes a custom water poly which overrides our scenery coastline. There is currently no way to disable this unless you uninstall FTX Norcal
The overpasses to the north of the airport don't line up right, or show premature shadows
You may be running FTX Norcal, which overrides elevation data. Since the elevation data is different from stock FSX to FTX Norcal, we have to create the overpasses to match only one. In this case obviously, stock FSX/P3D which is the majority of users.
My aircraft door isn't lined up correctly with the large white jetways at Terminal 3
FSX's programming has all aircraft stop at the same center point in a gate, even though different aircraft have different door locations. Unfortunately like in the real SFO, the large white jetways only move forward and up/down. Since they don't rotate, it's not possible to customize every aircraft stop location for the jetway to line up perfectly. Best solution is to use external view while slowly pulling up to the gate to verify jetway-door position alignment.
I got an "Out of Memory" error (OOM), or performance is bad
See our performance guide right here in the KSFOHD Support forum!
I see black squares on the ground where the gates are
A bug caused by DreamFlight's MRLB scenery. Just disable the scenery and it goes away. I've notified Dreamflight of this issue, I believe they are updating their installer.
RE: 11 - I see black squares on the ground where the gates are
"Just remove that product and it goes away"
Just clarifying for some people, the MRLB scenery does not need to be uninstalled... just disabled in the "scenery.cfg" file. Minor inconvenience, and works great! Awesome KSFOHD scenery Mir!!! Thanks so much!
Correct, you don't need to uninstall. You can simply use the Scenery Library as well, and uncheck the scenery to temporarily disable. This saves VAS/Virtual memory as well.
You can also navigate to where that scenery is and find parkmarks.bgl and rename it to parkmarks.OFF
