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. Art's Dream: Flight control setting is forgotten

    During the final sequence of Art's Dream, the player experiences flight with non-inverted Y controls and the option to switch to inverted Y by pressing Triangle. If the player dies and restarts, the setting is forgotten. The setting is also forgotten between scenes which leads to more deaths which leads to more forgetting and more deaths and so on.

    Until Dreams supports global variables, this may be impossible to fix. This is a great reason to have globals.

  2. R2 sensitivity

    On some Dualshock controllers, holding the R2 button doesn't function correctly. Seems like the button has trouble reaching the 100% pressed threshold. Is this a known issue and the reason that the toggle button option was introduced in the preferences? Is this the only workaround currently? It's stopped one of my creations from functioning correctly for some users and they may just assume that my logic doesn't work.

  3. Imp moving on its own a little

    Every once in a while my imp slowly moves on its own in one direction. Recentering the imp seems to fix it so it isnā€™t much of an issue, but it can be annoying when sculpting more precise builds. No idea why this happens.

  4. Motion controls not working + no way to switch back

    Was letting my friend mess around in share play, he uses motion controls and I don't, so he switched the option in settings. After I got the controller back in share play, motion controls were working properly.

    When I started the app later, however, I couldn't move my imp at all with motion controls (this had happened before and idk why) and I can't access the menu to turn it off. Motion works fine for others games too.

  7. Y inversion does not work on L1 camera

    I use Y inversion, traveling around normally I push forward to look down, and back to look up. But holding the L1 key during the tutorial it suddenly reverses and opposite of normal. I have to push up to move the camera up (it should go down to match Y reversal) and when pushing down on R stick it should move up, but instead moves down. This is very confusing and goes against the whole idea of being able to reverse Y on games.

  8. Left motion controller O backs me out or cancels

    Im getting a glitch when I place a scene or element into a collection and press O on the left motion control to adjust size it backs me out of the collection and then after that if I press it again it backs me out of my profile as well. Iā€™m even getting the animation of my right imp rotating as if Iā€™m pressing the right O but Iā€™m not. Problem is I donā€™t know if this is a Game bug or my motion controllers.

  9. Photos taken from a deleted creation can no longer be used as thumbnails.

    So we have all probably hit the creation limit, or perhaps that's only me, but there is an issue with photos.
    Say for instance, you want to make a game thumbnail, so you get a new creation, take the photo, then just don't save the level. The photo appears when you go to your gallery, and it's saved to your system, but does not appear when selecting a cover photo. I know this is a small issue, but it would be nice to see it solved. (or notified of a solution, either works!)

  10. First Person Camera Puppet Bug

    Since the latest update when camera distance is at 0m on puppet camera to create first person, the puppet disappears, very frustrating. Happens with basic generic puppets even.

    Please fix as soon as possible this really affects my dream in development.

  11. Camera Pointer, missing option?

    Am I crazy, or did we used to be able to adjust the Camera Pointer gadget by pressing L1 + X and aiming it like a normal camera?

    It's been a while since I used this gadget, so I'm not 100% sure, but I feel like in Early Acces it was easy and intuitive. Just like the Camera Gadget.

    I definitely don't remember having to manually rotate the gadget, pointing the arrow, and going into Play Mode to see if the angle is okay.

    Can't find any other topics on Camera Pointers, but I think this might be a bug.

  12. I can't disable the fixed camera follow in the Controller Sensor gadget.

    When I activate play mode, one puppet is followed by a fixed camera, I cannot turn that camera off, I wanted the controller sensor's camera off, but the camera properties don't have an off button.

  13. Stamps Spawning in way too far away

    When you are in dreamshaping and you go to try to stamp in another playerā€™s element it is possible for the stamp to spawn in so high up that you are barely even able to see it. I donā€™t know if this is a bug or if it is intentionally like this, but the thing that you are trying to stamp should at least spawn where your imp is located on the map instead of literally a million feet above it. In the picture provided if you look real close to the upper right side of the picture youā€™ll seeā€¦

  14. Camera glitch

    When I use my character and jump from something that is high up (a building), the camera won't follow the character to the ground. It glitches out and it just gets stuck in the air, thinking the character is still in that position. Or it seems that it thinks the character has fallen out of the scene. I hope there is a solution to fix this!

  15. In "Left & Right Sticks" mode, Imp velocity changes when panning at edge of screen

    Change your control scheme to Left & Right Sticks

    Change your Imp Speed to 1

    Enter Create Mode

    Enter Paint Mode

    Hold X to paint, and tilt the left stick diagonally and hold it steady, such that the imp will run into the edge of the screen and start panning the camera.

    Observe that the camera pans at a different rate than the Imp Speed, causing the line to no longer be straight, even though the analog stick was held steady.

    My desired behavior is that the camera pans at such a rate that the imp speed remains constant. Iā€¦

  16. Bug disappearing imps in create mode !!!

    Question real quick.
    Is disappearing imps a know bug?
    I'm not the one having the problem, a friend of mine is.
    He just got back to Dreams as it launched.

    He says they are like ghosts, like they are there but not visible.

    And he said there is a video in YT about it so he's not alone having this issue
    .
    But as I didn't find any report here to vote up, I'm making my own.

    And here's the YT video NOT from my friend, but someone else.
    https://youtu.be/96QMLswYAEs

    Cheers guys I love Dreams and I'd hate to seeā€¦

  17. Camera controls behaves weird after leaving a topdown camera

    If you stamp a camera looking down, enter in it or play the scene, and when leaving trying to move the camera would behaves very weird, surely not as expected. Im using the motion control scheme

  19. While possessing a controller sensor, sticks users cannot use the imp

    This means any game that uses a possessed puppet or something and allows the player to use the imp at the same time cannot be played by players using the sticks control scheme, as far as I can tell.

    Already posted in feedback, but thought it could be a bug so I decided to post in both places in case. https://feedback.indreams.me/forums/917383-dreams-feedback/suggestions/39929617-while-possessing-a-controller-sensor-sticks-users?tracking_code=9fee235a02da764d118e2ac8f4b10ef2

  20. Player camera will go inside of the player and get stuck inside player when I'm next to a wall and move the camera twords the wall..

    I've created a game with a rolling ball character that has the ability to attach objects to itself. When the character gets close to a wall and I rotate the camera towards the wall the camera will zoom in to the character until it is inside of the character. This will cause the entire screen to go White and it is not easy to rotate the camera in such a way that it will go out of the character usually the only way to get the camera out of the character is to just fly around or move around aā€¦
