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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  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. 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.

  6. 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€¦

  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. 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.

  9. 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°

  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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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€¦

  14. Keep Changes and Slow Power Up conflict

    As soon as I turn on Keep Changes in a keyframe, the Slow Power Up seems to stop working.

    Example from the Keyframes Animation tutorial: stamp a keyframe with Slow Power Up set to 5 seconds and connect it to a trigger zone. Observe how the animation plays very slowly. Now turn on Keep Changes and see how the animation is much faster.

  15. 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

  16. Wire nodes become invisible and prevent michrochip window to be shortened

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyOzahUOdUI


    • Moving a gadget, that is wired into something else and have wire nodes placed, into a second microchip, doesn't seem to move the nodes with it but rather makes them invisible?

    • After that you can not shorten the microchip window to a specific point.

    • moving the gadgets and then trying to shorten the window makes it jump

    • Only fix is to bring back the gadget into the microchip where the wire nodes were set and delete the nodes.

  17. Homespace tutorial Welcome Home Prizes no longer accessible

    The Welcome Home Prizes that you earn during the homespace tutorial (Welcome Home Bathroom/Bedroom/Room/Kitchen/Exterior/Moods and Music) are now locked and say Not Yet Collected. I cleared out my homespace in hopes to move things around a bit. But when I went back to add them back to my homespace I wasn't able to use them again.

  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. 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! :)

  20. Intermittent issues changing grip points via move controllers (PS3 Moves)

    Since the latest full release update I have intermittent problems trying to change grip. Pressing the circle button also scales the object and the two settings seem to be fighting each other. Change grip flickers on and off as does the scale setting, however, sometimes it works better than others, but the whole thing is 'off' compared to early access. Even when it does work, it can throw the imp miles from the object and it becomes challenging. Not intuitive anymore at all.

    I am using the PS3 Moves and have swapped both over to function as the off hand.ā€¦

    Hello FourteenInchGaz

    Sorry that your having problems with the Motion controllers.

    We have had a few reports of the behaviour changing or being less responsive in regards to changing grip points.

    Were tracking an issue for this in our database.

    Thank you for the post
