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!

  2. 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€¦

  3. 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€¦

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. 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

  8. 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 there Joep,

    Sorry to hear you encountered this problem and lost work you created due to it :(

    Can i ask if the message you got was ‘Pre-load failed’?

    Has it happened to you again since you posted this message?

    Thanks,

  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!)

    Hi Godslayer,

    It’s still hard to see what could be causing the issues from the videos.

    Is there any chance you could make a remixable version of your puppet that we could use to investigate more?

    Are your keyframes set to ‘Keep Changes’ by the way?

    Thanks
    PeteS

  11. Dreams unable to load, since early access, and is still happening in final release..

    So i have had this bug since early access. Basically im unable to load most dreams 90 percent of the time. For example:

    i will load Dreams from my playstation. Then go to browse in dreamaverse. Select a game and hit 'play'. Then the loading thing will just spin forever and never load the dream.

    OR, alternatively when it DOES load a game/dream, it will often not get past the next loading screen or level, and just sit there with the spinning swirl and i cant even hit 'start' to exit out. Instead i have to hold my PS buttonā€¦

  12. Adding "Art's Dream" prizes to my scene made it unable release as playable

    After completing the jaw dropping Mm Dream, 'Art's Dream' I was excited to use some of the prize bubbles I gathered in my playthrough in my own scenes.

    I have a couple scenes that I have worked on during the early access period and have been uploading as private, playable and public - testing each publishing way to become more comfortable and understand the different release capabilities.

    It wasn't until I added some of the new Mm "Art's Dream" assets to my scene that I ran into some issues. My scenes became unable to upload, even as public or private.

  13. Reference frame, engine and gyroscope

    Hello. Why the reference frame doesn't work with the gyroscope and the engine. I wanted to make a moving object with animation, but if there is a motor or gyroscope, it does not work, or moves to the recording location.And if you immediately put a gyroscope or engine, it is not even recorded.

  14. Ps4 keyboard arrows don't work anymore

    These arrows are used to work and they were a pretty good use in order to change cursor's position easily!

    Right now,if you want to correct or chance something in a big text of yours(its the same in every appearance of the Ps4 keyboard) you have to press L1 or R1 forever in order to locate it.

    Hi again,

    Are you still experiencing this issue??

    I see you had trouble uploading a video, as was mentioned before, you could try uploading to youtube and giving us the url link to that instead?

    Thanks,
    PeteS

    Text boxes since the last undated (2.11 i think) now do not display correctly when "in scene" they disappear seemingly at random Angles when the camera is panning around them.

    Hi Ash,

    Thanks for your response.

    If you could provide us with the name of your scene or the indreams link to it, then we can take a look at this as well.

    Even better, if you can get a video of it happening, then i’ll have the team look into it.

    cheers,
    PeteS

  16. Curve tool

    When you use the curve tool, in stamp mode, it often leaves a donut ring, between the centre two moving points (the ones you grab, to bend it). Even when moving the two points far away from each other, the donut bulge is still slightly there. I canā€™t get a smooth spike/curve at all.

  18. Update Mode Won't Let Me Select Object

    Tried playing my level through with headphones, only to realize there was a sound effect stamped somewhere in the scene I didn't want to play. So i went into Update mode, and pressed select object so I could delete the sound effect. Only every time I press select object, it just sends me back into edit mode without anything selected so I can't delete the sound. Please help!!! Is this a glitch, or am I doing something wrong?

    Hi CJ M

    Thanks for responding.

    I’m glad to hear it’s no longer occurring for you now.

    If you happen to have this issue pop up again, then please let us know again in a new ticket.

    If it is indeed a bug, we’d like to investigate it further so it stops happening.

    Many thanks,
    PeteS

  19. Paint is broken

    I had a sculpture of a cigarette with smoke trailing off of it and now the trail of smoke is completely gone without me even touching the thing. This bug started to happen a couple of weeks right after the vr update. Can I even trust this game to make a game???

    Hi Justin Neely,

    I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing this problem.

    Could I just ask for some more information so we can look into this for you?

    Do you have a link to your creation so we can take a look?

    Has this happened to more than one painting or just this specific one?

    Is it still happening with any new painted objects since the update?

    Thanks,
    PeteS

  20. Disappearing Imps & Saved Creations Deleted

    I have a ps4 pro and I am creating with the move controllers if this helps. My imps disappear and my creations are not accessible. This is the second time this has happened. First time all of my creations where deleted that I was near publishing, this time just half. I've seen others complain about this but no answers or solutions are ever given. Can someone please address this
