Dreams Bugs šŸœ

With such a huge suite of creative tools, you may encounter occasional bugs in Dreams. Itā€™s really helpful for us to hear about them! If you discover an issue in Dreams, please check to see if anyone else has reported the issue before and if someone has, comment on it with your experiences. If not, post a new bug report here!

Hereā€™s some top tips to help us track down your bug as quickly as possible:

ā€¢ Give us a brief, clear summary of the bug. If necessary let us know what you think should be happening that isnā€™t.
ā€¢ Let us know the exact steps we need to follow to recreate your bug. For example -
ā€œLoad game > go to create mode > search for banana > stamp ā€œsuper cool bananaā€ > the banana didnā€™t load!"
ā€¢ If possible it really helps if you can include a screenshot or video of the problem.
ā€¢ Let us know the release version of the game ā€“ you can find this by having the Dreams icon highlighted on the Playstation homescreen, pressing ā€œoptionsā€ and then ā€œinformationā€. The bit we want is the Version number!

  1. MAJOR BUG: will not let me publish my dream as it says there is a private asset somewhere.

    I have a dream called "unfinished" and it is saying there is a private creation but I'm only trying to post as playable not public. Myself and the other collaborator made sure to go back and publish every single scene used. Please help.

  2. Occasionally random cover images appear when I select a Dream

    Sometimes when I dreamsurfing and choose a Dream to play a completely random and different cover image from another Dream suddenly takes the normal's place...As you can see in the video!

    It can happen the other way around too sometimes! Looking at a random thumbnail(correct title though) but when I choose the dream the right cover image appears as the zooming to the cover page happens!

    This appeared after 2.16 (vr) update.

  4. Text Displayers Altered by Collaborators Become Unreliable

    When a collaborator alters a previously existing text displayer and then saves a creation, the original creator opens up the creation, they will often see the old text still.

    New viewers seem to have a semi-random chance as to which version will appear, but with the old text slightly more likely.

    This has been a constant struggle for those of us collaborating on projects.

    We submit into evidence:

    I asked Sebastian to save a basic creation with the text "Sebastian wrote this". He then added me as a collaborator, and I altered the text to say "Andy wrote this". Whenā€¦

  5. text displayer can be moved even when the text displayers option aint open or hasnt been selected.

    what it use to be was to move a text box you need to select it or open its menu, now while in play mode you can always move it no matter what, this is annoying when its a big text box on the screen and always getting in the way of interacting with anything else.

  6. Update Mode has become kinda buggy since the VR update.

    Especially Auto Update. I have to press options and return to the scene for auto update to work. Also it slowly recounts the amount of updated objects in the scene one by one, when before it showed the correct number instantly.

  7. I cant play the game

    After I start the game there are two different scenarios:
    1. After the start, the game stucks in the starting-screen
    2. After the controller overview, the game stucks in a blackscreen with a loading circle, instead of playing the game intro(in the beginning there was nothing...) After two minutes the game crashes and a PS4-error message appears(ce-34878-0)

    I reinstalled the game for five times, but it didnt help.

    Hello MM170795

    I am really sorry that those options didn’t help, but the information you have provided has been extremely helpful.

    We notice your using a external hard drive, is the game installed on this or the internal hardrive.

    We have got a copy of that crash log,
    I have raised a ticket for this issue which we will now investigate.

    I am not sure when a fix for this will become available.
    If you not satisfied with dreams you can get in touch with Sony customer services should you wish for a refund.

    Thanks
    Mark M

  8. Imp disappear, preload and save error

    Hi there I just had this problem: my imp disappeared and I canā€™t see it

    I found on yt a video of a guy having the same issue https://youtu.be/Ke1Gl91-cnQ
    The only difference with me is I canā€™t even see the preview

  9. Private Creations Causing Release complications EXPLAINED

    I posted a bit about this in feedback as well, but it seems the molecules are more focused on bugs at the moment. As well as seeing a lot of you have encountered this issue here in bugs and are unaware whats causing it. So I'll try my best to explain the issue here.

    The following video shows two examples of private creations prevented from release. the first example(clarified below the video) is a scene I was unable to release at all, that thankfully I was able to fix, and release as remixable. and the second is a scene Iā€¦

  10. You now automatically move to the front of your notification cue after checking a link further behind in your notification cue

    This did not happen in Early Access, it does now. If you have many notifications and scroll through them and click on one of the users who liked your level, you will be pushed back to the beginning of your notification cue after you have checked on the user. It used to just put you back to where you were in the cue.

  11. The collision shape of a puppet is not honored when set to be emitted

    I have an enemy puppet with a specific collision shape. I set up an emitter to emit the enemy at various locations in my scene. To my surprise if I end up fighting multiple of them they do not collide with each other. Collisions are enabled with Foe and enemies labeled as Foe. Pretty sure this is due to the fact that prior to linking the enemy to emit it has a largish collision shape while checking the same on the enemy after it is linked to the emitter shows the collision shape is drastically smaller.

    Hi Scitendo,

    Thank you for reporting this issue. If possible may we please have a video of the issue occurring and if possible a re mixable level link to investigate this further?

    Cheers.

  12. Physical Painting limit hit for 1 small painting

    Yesterday, I created a grass tile which uses logic to enable physical paintings when the puppet stands over 1 of multiple trigger zones. Worked like a dream (no pun intended) yesterday. Today, since the latest update, the same tile permanently hits a physical painting limit. So, I deleted all but one of the tufts of grass, removed duplicates, enabled physics for that 1 blade of grass and the limit is hit again!!! I've attached screenshots to show the problem (they are not merged paintings).

  13. Keep changes on Keyframe causes easing

    Turning on keep changes causes a single keyframe to have an ease in/out response.

    Reproduce:
    Grab a slider, signal manipulator, timer, and keyframe.
    Keyframe the slider to 1.
    Plug the timer output into the keyframe power.
    Plug the slider into the signal manipulator.
    Switch the manipulator to remapper mode so you can see the graph.
    Play time.

    With keep changes off, you'll see the expected linear transition.
    With keep changes on, you see a slight ease in, and a more dramatic ease out. The value also nearly reaches 1 only half way through the timer output.

  14. {IMP-ORTANT} ā€˜Unable to find fileā€™ error in community jam

    I am trying to vote on the ā€œKingdoms in the Skyā€ community jam but one of the dreams has an ā€œunable to find fileā€œ error on it preventing me from playing it and reloading for new dreams to vote on.

    I donā€™t know the name of the Dream but here is a picture of the thumbnail if that helps at all.

  15. Dream map bug where when you enter its edit mode all links from scene to scene are deleted until you check the update screen

    this seems to happen to old dream maps but not when i create a new one.

    no need to show a video or anything because its exactly what i said

    i enter a dream map edit mode all 20+ links are deleted not even showing until i goto the update screen then it fixes it.

    if i uses the scenes in a new dream map that might fix this bug but then thats yet another thing i cant delete to add to my pile of 100+ scenes that i also cant delete.

  16. One of my creations causes Dreams to crash

    Since launch of VR one of my painting assets crashes Dreams. This did not happen before the latest update, as you can tell from the 43 thumbs up it has. It crashes Dreams when you click on it in a feed or a collection before the profile page loads. This is upsetting as it is not something I can recreate.

    Just so you do not think there is something in the creation that may cause it. It is a spraypainted flat rectangle. No audio, No logic, No gadgets.My suspicion is that somehow the profile page has become corrupted on yourā€¦

    Hello LadyLexUK

    Thanks for this post.

    I am glad that the level is no longer crashing. This was one of the main fixes we wanted to get out in the 2.17 patch.

    If any of your creations still crash in a similar way please get in contact with us again.

    Many thanks,
    Mark M

  19. Text box properties: turning off auto fit and shrinking the box, disables leftstick movement when imp hovers over the box.

    If you disable the auto fit at the text box properties and make the text box small enough to just fit the text inside, when you hover your imp over the text, you are unable to move with left stick in create mode.
    Meanwhile the text inside scrolls up and down.

    We’ve looked at this and decided to throw it in to the bug database for the team to investigate.
