Loading into a dream sometimes causes loading wheel of infinity
Occasionally when I start playing in a user made dream, the dream won't load and gives a loading wheel which i can't back out of, forcing me to close and restart the game entirely. It happens either immediately when hopping into a dream in the dreamiverse or after i play a handful of them. I've had to restart the game multiple times a day! I'm on the latest version 2.05 and base original PS4.
Hi, I just got this game a few days ago and I'm having this exact problem =/
Uninstall the game. Should fix it
I downloaded the game almost two weeks ago and experience the same problem every time I try to play. If I'm lucky, I might get to play a game or two before it gets stuck in an infinite loading loop. At that point, I can't do anything but back out to the PS4 menu and close the application. I'm really not happy about being out $40 and being stuck with a game that doesn't work.
Bump! Still happening sadly, any word on an upcoming fix?
After updating, I was able to play through The Pilgrim perfectly fine on both wifi and ethernet, yay! BUT, once I finished that I tried another dream while dream surfing, and it worked fine up until I entered the next level, causing more loading/networking issues. Once I backed out of The Pilgrim, I noticed a new networking issue notification as well. I backed out to my homespace and entered the dream surfing again to play the pumpkin dream. Here's a youtube link I recorded of what I encountered: https://youtu.be/OoUiWE257aY The video shows that once I enter creepy creek, I gain access to my character but the level isn't loaded! This is recorded on Dreams 2.06, base PS4 and on a strong wifi connection.
This only happens when I'm loading other's usermade dreams when looking through the dreamiverse. I played through all of Art's Dream fine. I did notice that playing with an ethernet connection fixed this issue, despite all my other multiplayer and online games working fine on wifi. I'm curently updating to 2.06 on dreams and will report back if it fixes this.

Would it be possible to state with Dreams, Scene and Elements are creating the infinity loading screen?
thanks Lara L
How long are you letting it load? I've seen a few heavily detailed dreams that take a good minute or 2 to load on the PS4 pro, so I'd imagine even a bit longer on the base.
