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. Hidden levels are made visible through a dream's geneology.

    Hi! So I discovered that if a Dream for example has all it's levels set to "always invisible", this can be bypassed by going through that dream's geneology (where levels will be visible once discovered).

    If one selects a level from this geneology, the linking/doorways to the next level, as defined by the dream, is not deactivated (it should be imo), and posting to scoreboards is also still active.

    This becomes extremely problematic when one uses variables for example to keep track of the time one has used (for speedruns etc.). Let's say this time-variable is reset at the startā€¦

  3. {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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Profile text different between InDreams.me and Dreams PS4

    I've edited my profile text on Indreams.me. On the website, it shows the new text I edited, but on Dreams PS4, it doesn't show this text, it only shows the old text and the profile on Dreams PS4 doesn't update to match my profile edit on Indreams.me? What's going on? I did like empty cache and hard reload, etc. and I tried two browsers MacOS Chrome and Safari so its definitely the new text on inDreams.me. It looks like the Profile screen in Dreams isn't detecting the update?

  8. All my "thumbs up" gone!

    My dream was in the top 10 of a recent community jam. It had gained a good number of "thumbs up" from the community. Now they have all vanished, and I only have 3 thumbs up.

  9. "Following" shouldn't include dreamers completing Imp Quests.

    I honestly don't care that someone i follow has completed xxx imp quest, especially since it doesn't even specify what that required.

    All it does is spam my Notifications and make important things get lost, like creators updating or publishing new levels. I have to scroll for like 2 minutes just to see all notifications of the past 24h and 90% are imp quests. (and i only follow 8 people!)

  10. Releasing and submitting to the game jam failed and erased (overwrote?) my game!

    Hi. Yesterday I attempted to release my first game and submit it to the 'One button' game jam. When trying to release it I got a 'Publishing element failed' error, then when I returned to the 'Select your entry' page or 'My Creations' page, it had removed the latest version of my game, leaving an almost blank version from a week ago. I cannot get the latest version back.

    I've upload an unlisted video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzEoe80T2rE&t=639s.

    Some notes:
    5:05 - I initially try to release as Playable. It asks me to also release various previous versions of the gameā€¦

  11. Updates to already published Dream not appearing for other players

    Iā€™m trying to update the main menu in Shuffleboard. I made 3 changes and published the updated version. Everything looked good when I viewed the new published version, but only one was able to be seen by my collaborator. I then went and made additional changes and published the updates. None of them were able to be seen by my collaborator, or by the people I saw streaming it today, despite it looking good on my end. For some reason it appears that most if not all updates that I try to publish as public, do not appear to theā€¦

  12. Scrolling back when browsing elements in Dream Shaping

    This bug occurs when browsing elements in Dream Shaping.

    If I view an element, and go back to the "Search Results" by pressing circle, the list stutters for a moment, and "goes back" to 10-20 elements before, meaning my search starts again. It does not go back to the absolute start of the list.

    To recreate this:
    Enter Dream Shaping
    Press Search
    Filter Criteria
    Use sticks to scroll the relevant elements at the bottom of the screen
    Browse through and view 3 or 4 different elements.
    Eventually, pressing circle to return refreshes the elements and takes you back to earlierā€¦

  13. Scoreboard malfunction

    Countless times when I have gotten a new high score, and it displays the bottom-right notification, the scoreboard does not update. Closing and re-entering the application does not fix the issue. The only fix is to restart or turn off & on the PS4.

    There are two dreams that are permanently "set" this way for me, and one dream, that was working fine, suddenly had this occur once and never again so far.

    Whereas in another dream, also working fine, suddenly did not save the new score outside of the game (no in-game notification and no updated scoreboard). For thisā€¦

  14. Can't load my creations but my friend who is a collaborator on them can load them.

    I have been working on a few private creations with 1 friend set as a collaborator. I had worked on them several times, but since my last save on the creations they no longer will load, saying "Preload Failed". However, my friend can load them fine. I had them re-save it to see if the new save would allow me to reaccess them, but it still will not load says the same as before. I really don't want to lose these creations. What can be done to be able to load into my creations again?

  15. Upload bug with creations saved as a new element

    Hi guys, I just had a bug wich prevent me from saving in private my creation. I use to have a scene in wich I make all of my mechanics and then save them as a new element. But for the first time there's an error when I try to upload it. But there's also something weird, when I want to upload there's the usual message saying that I need to also upload my scene and it won't stop showing me this all the time even if I accept or save it in private before and always end up withā€¦

  17. Imp Quests info menu is very bugged

    The imp quest says Well Done Youve completed this imp quest.
    On the right it says 0% of dreamers completed this quest
    Highly unlikely that not even 1% of Dreamers have done imp quests, especially the easy ones.

    Affects:

    Set the Scene & Brave the Elements
    Ancient Times
    Start Decorating
    Start Dreaming 1
    Polymath
    I Have an Idea
    Set the Free
    Youre a Contender
    Return to Sender
    Nice to Meet You
    Art for Apple
    Audio for Marvin
    etc....

    Some quests I have completed show as a full bar. Others show no bar. There is no consistency on how completed questsā€¦

    I found that this is a residue from the scene I'm remixing and this objects are not even there anymore yet it don't let me publish the dream. I've seen so many posts in the past about this problem. What is going on? Thanks

  19. Looking at a collection isn't registered by indreams.me

    As in, in the "Live" tab it doesn't show up. So you can't use that to find the collection through indreams.

  20. Stuck on dream exit screen

    I played a showcase dream of a gun called ā€œStylized Walther PPKā€ by Kluthausen2000 and the first time I exited it (by activating the exit in the scene with circle button) I was sent to the ā€œGive it a thumbs up?ā€ screen and the continue button did not work. I had to restart Dreams. Upon further investigation I have not had the same problem again, but the game does freeze a little when I hit the Continue button after exiting, and then sends me back to the Dream menu.
