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. Occasionally random cover images appear when I select a Dream

    Sometimes when I dreamsurfing and choose a Dream to play a completely random and different cover image from another Dream suddenly takes the normal's place...As you can see in the video!

    It can happen the other way around too sometimes! Looking at a random thumbnail(correct title though) but when I choose the dream the right cover image appears as the zooming to the cover page happens!

    This appeared after 2.16 (vr) update.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. I cant play the game

    After I start the game there are two different scenarios:
    1. After the start, the game stucks in the starting-screen
    2. After the controller overview, the game stucks in a blackscreen with a loading circle, instead of playing the game intro(in the beginning there was nothing...) After two minutes the game crashes and a PS4-error message appears(ce-34878-0)

    I reinstalled the game for five times, but it didnt help.

    Hello MM170795

    I am really sorry that those options didn’t help, but the information you have provided has been extremely helpful.

    We notice your using a external hard drive, is the game installed on this or the internal hardrive.

    We have got a copy of that crash log,
    I have raised a ticket for this issue which we will now investigate.

    I am not sure when a fix for this will become available.
    If you not satisfied with dreams you can get in touch with Sony customer services should you wish for a refund.

    Thanks
    Mark M

  6. 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. {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.

  8. 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€¦

  9. Calculators treat ā€œ8 valuesā€ fat wires differently than 2-4 values

    Create a combiner and use it to combine 8 different signals. Connect that to a Calculator, and use that calculator to multiply the fat wireā€™s values by 3, by setting the slider on the Calculatorā€™s other operand.

    Use a splitter and number displayers to inspect the values of the eight signals coming out of the calculator (or search ā€œsignal displayā€ on the dreamiverse)

    Observe that the values were multiplied by (3,0,0,0,0,0,0,0).

    Tweak the Combiner to change its type to ā€œ4 valuesā€ and observe that now the calculator multiplies by (3,3,3,3).

    I would expect that ā€œ8 valuesā€ be consistent with theā€¦

  10. 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.

  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. 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. 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.

    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.

  15. 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°

  16. Negative ruffle does nothing for paintings

    Seems like it should be 0 - 100, as negative values have no effect.

  17. Teleporter gizmo reset bug from early access still present


    • place a sculpt

    • surface snap a microchip on it and open it

    • place a teleporter into the microchip

    • tweak the teleporter and move its gizmo away from the center of the sculpt

    • Now move the teleporter gadget inside the microchip a little

    • the teleporter gizmo will snap back to the center position of the sculpt

  18. Adding link to game on profile not appearing properly

    So as some may know, you can add links to your games on your profile.

    This feature works for me on some of my games, but for one of them it doesn't link it properly for some reason, here's my profile you can see for yourself: https://indreams.me/Onatauo

    My game "Pong" appears properly, but my second game "GLOW-BOTS" doesn't appear properly, I added both links the same way but the second game doesn't appear properly.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
