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. 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.

  4. 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.

    Hi Zupaton,

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

    Thanks for your input on this!

  5. Canā€™t deselect hovered note

    Create a music gadget and go into the piano roll.

    Draw some notes with the pencil tool, then unequip the pencil.

    Select some notes with X

    Hover the imp over one of the selected notes and press circle.

    The expected result is that the notes would deselect, same as with regular object or gadget selections. However it doesnā€™t work if the imp is hovering over a note, and you have to move the imp to empty space and press circle again to actually deselect.

  6. Multi-clone doesnā€™t space evenly when grabbing a gadget off-center

    Stamp a gadget on a microchip

    Clone it, but point the imp tip at the very top edge of the gadget before grabbing.

    Press dpad right a few times to multiclone.

    Observe that the second through nth clones are closer together than the first and second clones are.

    This issue does not occur when grabbing the gadget by its very center.

  7. Coat Mode tools apply to hidden objects when using ā€œhide everything elseā€

    Create three cubes, and group two of them.

    Scope into the group, and enable ā€œhide everything elseā€

    Enter Coat Mode and select the Hue tool.

    Enable the volume brush by clicking the button or holding dpad up

    Hold r2 while moving the brush around the place where the hidden cube would be.

    Scope out, and observe that the hidden cube was accidentally hue-shifted.

    This issue does not seem to occur when hiding objects with the Hide tool.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the feedback, however we can confirm this is not an issue. The “Hide everything else” tool acts differently to the Hide tool itself. The Hide everything else is there to just help with focusing on that specific group while hiding the rest of the clutter on screen. While the Hide tool is designed to hide things in scenes.

  9. Naming conventions for logic disappeared

    Hi, I'm not sure how to replicate this bug as it seemed a one time thing (so far, fingers crossed), but when I booted up my level all the naming conventions for my logic were gone. This includes Mm logic I used (the ancient temple score counter). Replacing it seems to work. All the names I used previously I can't select anymore in the quick access menu in the logic where you scroll through the names you gave your logic before. So all my receivers, transmitters etc. have been reset causing all sorts of mayhem when going to play mode.ā€¦

    Hi Joep,

    Sorry to hear that it happened again, did you manage to grab the error that it gave? What did you alter in your scene before the error occurred? If possible could we get a copy of the creation that you are getting the error in, with possible steps to reproduce? (What you did to the lead up of the error)

    If it does occur again can you take a screenshot of the error, please?

    I would recommend periodically saving the creation to the server just to make sure nothing is lost.

  10. theres a bug where players can like and comment on a dream within a dream thats is set to always invisible and unlisted

    i have a dream within a dream but even tho the second dream is set to always invisible and unlisted it should never be seen by the player but yet people are still putting likes on it.

    i have a dream within a dream because having 6-30 scenes in 1 dream then having 8 dreams in a dream is better than just having 1 dream with 100 scenes in it.

    when i pause the game at any time in my game it always displays the first dream image and not the second one.

    i just want all likes and commentsā€¦

  11. Scaling tutorial bug makes it impossible to progress to create mode without wiping all dreams data from your ps4.

    Mm!

    Urgent QA message for the new Dreams tutorial!

    When I was going through the scaling home space editor tutorial my friend somehow made the rectangle disappear permanently and it won't respawn on restarting or resetting.

    Hear ye hear ye!

    Make a restart tutorial option or some other such fix you deem appropriate. Class A bug! Completely locks players out of create mode! šŸ””šŸ””šŸ””

    LOVE YOU MEDIA MOLECULE!

  12. Puppet base breaks z sorting for rendering selection highlights of puppet's sculpts

    When scoped into a puppet, even when the puppet base is behind the puppet's sculpts, it's always considered to be in front of the puppet's sculpts for the purpose of rendering their selection highlights.

    Repro steps:


    1. Create a puppet.

    2. Scope into the puppet.

    3. Select one of the puppet's sculpts.

    4. Adjust the camera angle so that the puppet base is partially behind the selected sculpt.

    Observed: The selection highlight is rendered around the part of the sculpt that doesn't obscure the puppet base, as if the puppet base were in front of the sculpt instead of behind it.

    Expected: The selectionā€¦

  13. Publishing element failed

    I'm having an issuing publishing about 15 scenes as public. I have 15 scenes that had been built based off a previous scene. When I go to publish it gives me publishing element failed. I went back and published every element it was showing needing to be released to publish the 15 scenes.

    Now the "original scene" for the 15 is showing published I can open and save it public no problem. Yet when I open any of the following scenes it says I need to make that "original scene" public. It's asking me to make public a specific olderā€¦

  14. Text boxes displayed on screen bugs

    Here are some things I discovered to be misbehaving using on screen text displayers


    • Text handles shouldn't scale with the text because in the case of an icon such as the <X> button, when you make it really big you can't move it on the screen on either axis because the handles that scale take priority over movement as they are as big as the big icon itself.


    • Text box handles work, but won't visually show up when text is on top of another (think of a text over a background layer)


    • On a similar note, when you place someā€¦

  15. Scene did not save

    Someone for the love of God please help.

    I was up from 8am to 2am (now) editing a scene in Dreams and it didnā€™t save anything, even though I saved frequently through the process.

    As a timeline, When I finally finished my project, I saved it one last time. Then I went to my collections and decided to post a nice sculpture I made to the Dreamiverse. It told me I was required to upload my scene as public in order to post the sculpture, so I did. I then browsed some other structures for a minute and then closedā€¦

    Hi

    Weā€™re very sorry to hear youā€™re experiencing this issue.
    Itā€™s something the team are aware of and are working on a fix for.

    For now, could i ask you to try the following please:

    When your see this message on your creations or are not able to access them, there are some steps to follow to help our team investigate this problem and with luck help you to continue using Dreams.

    Step 1

    The first step here is to back up your Dreams save data to a USB and send it across to us. This is super easy to do! Once youā€™ve got the save data, make a post on feedback.indreams.me and weā€™ll send you a link to our shared drive. Let us know once itā€™s there, and weā€™ll download it and will be able to begin investigating the issue on our end. (Once weā€™ve downloaded the data, weā€™llā€¦

    Literally all of these things worked before early access ended and now none of them work. I am getting "private creations" errors when there are none, I am getting "publishing element failed" errors, my editing doesnt show in my friends scene even in update mode and I am a collaborator. It wont let me publish my dream because it says his creations are private but on his says they are all published fully and publicly. All game breaking. And worst of all, mm has all but ignored me and many others on the forums. If I cant publish my stuffā€¦

  19. VR: When dragging a gadget while lightly holding the trigger, gadgets will unsnap from the canvas when they shouldnā€™t.

    Enter Create in VR

    Stamp a Microchip

    Stamp any gadget onto the microchip canvas

    Move the gadget by holding R2 lightly

    Observe that the gadget unsnaps from the canvas before it leaves the edge of the canvas, which does not occur when creating on a TV.

  20. Edit source object bug?

    When I tried to edit a source object from a scene it was in, the game asked to save changes, but then didnā€™t take me out of the scene to edit the object. The screen went blurry but I could still move around and edit the scene. It wouldnā€™t let me pause and exit so I had to close the game completely.

    Hi,

    Thank you for responding about this.

    We’re glad it hasn’t occurred for you since.
    I’ve noted this down so that the team are aware it happened though.

    If you do experience this occurring again, then please enter a new ticket in to alert us.
    If you could get a video of it happening then that would help us investigate it.

    Thanks,
    PeteS
