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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Notifications do not return to where you left it

    To say I am disappointed in this is an understatement. I get nearly 40 notifications or more a day and what I like to do is go through them methodically and put game links into play later, and answer any queries. Now however I am forced to the beginning of the list EVERY TIME I ACCESS ANYTHING. This is beyond awful.

  4. 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.

  5. Photos allow players to skip to unlisted scenes that have not been unlocked.

    After several photos were taken by The_Tenia in my game, "rhythMm," I received thumbs from other players on a few individual scenes which are unlisted and set to "Always Invisible." These players most likely saw the photo notification in their following feed, and accessed the scene through that notification.

    This is a problem because accessing these scenes directly means these players skipped the menu which requires you to choose between three difficulties.

    This also means that stories can be easily spoiled. For example, in the attached video I was using an account which has not yet played "Art's Dream." Iā€¦

  6. No notification when someone uses my elements

    This worked early in EA but stopped at some stage and I thought it may be fixed in launch.

    I do not receive a notification when someone has used one of my elements in their creations.

    This is an essential part of the Dreams experience and in my opinion should be a priority so newcomers can see their assets being used too.

    Thank you so much.

  7. 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€¦

  8. Surface Snap rotates the other guides.

    When you combine surface snap with another guide like kaleidoscope, everything gets rotated 90Ā°

    Turn on surface snap and kaleidoscope and paint on a flat surface. The kaleidoscope is not snapped to the surface. Its rotated 90Ā°.

    Or

    Turn on surface snap, paint on a flat surface, tweak the painting and add positional duplicates, on disc.
    The duplicates are rotated 90Ā°

  9. Activity-page resets every time you enter a user's profile, or a creation, or view an image

    The activity page of a creation (or your own notifications) will automatically reset all the way to the left after I've scrolled a bit to the right IF I press on one of the users in a specific notification or interact with the notification in any way.

    The "scroll amount" should definitely retain the same even if you visit one of the users. Thanks! :)

  10. Wire Blend on Wireless Transmitter is Broken

    Please see attached photo...

    On the first microchip:

    The wireless transmitterā€™s input is set to ā€œWire Blend - Blendā€ so itā€™s averaging out the inputs (0.5 and 1.0) as 0.75 and displaying it properly on the gadget itself (75% of the gadget is filled).

    However, the wireless receiver is receiving the sum of these values (0.5 and 1.0) and as a result, it is outputting 1.5.

    On the second microchip:

    Iā€™m using an intermediate value slider before sending the signal into the wireless transmitter.

    Again, itā€™s averaging the inputs (0.5 and 1.0) as 0.75, displaying it on the value slider,ā€¦

  11. Community Jam vote issue

    I'm unable to process the community Jam voting due to creation "way back through time" it continues to loop over and over meaning I can't complete the dream and refresh for more community entries to see. There's no way to process past this which is pretty frustrating. I contacted the creator but they seem to be unaware of the issue. A few other players have hit this brick wall too.

  13. Feeds do NOT return to where you exited when viewing the game profile page

    This is the third time reporting this catastrophic change to ALL the feeds that I expected to be fixed in this latest update after being broken in the orange update.
    So very very disappointed.
    To make matters worse, the notification feed is now showing a similar fault - though worse, as it returns to the start regardless how many messages you have. I have raised that as a separate bug as that was not present after Orange.

  14. Jam judging shows the creator's name and scene name when playing a dream

    As seen here: (limited time video) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/550393383?t=4h35m7s

    Can't prove that was the cause, but it was FlashMedallion's entry, a book cover recreation I think.

  16. New stick controls don't move imp whilst grabbing forward or in depth

    I had to switch back to motion controls to complete second / new gameplay tutorial teaching you about imp gameplay.

    I followed but was unable to move the ball forward to drop into pipe with the new stick controls.

    I could do it with the motion control setting so assume a bug.

    You can't move the imp in depth whilst grabbing with the new stick controls.

  17. Switch's "On/Off" button's short tooltip displays gadget name

    Create a Switch gadget. Tweak it, and hover the imp over the "On/Off" button. The "On/Off" text displays next to the imp as expected.

    Give the Switch gadget a name.

    Hover the imp over the "On/Off" button again, and observe that the gadget's name is displayed overlapping the "On/Off" text. This only happens in the short tooltip above the button prompts, not in the longer tooltip that appears in a black box on a long-hover.

  18. 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.

  19. Timeline preview does not reflect trimming of sound effects

    When a sound effect is placed in a timeline, and then you trim the end of the sound effect, that trimming is reflected when you scrub the play head, but if you press the Play button in the Timeline Preview controls at the bottom of the timeline, the full sound effect plays as if it was not trimmed.

    To reproduce, simply follow the Cinematic Sound Design tutorial. You can reproduce it at the end of step 2 of this tutorial.

  20. persistent variables+ global reset is very buggy

    If you set a variable as persistent and reset on rewind off and use global scene reset. the variables will only sometimes hold their values but even weirder they start skipping around their number order and if they are below the initial value they may reset to initial value OR jump to a random value its very buggy. I made a twitr video and remixable example
