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. 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.

  2. First Person Camera Puppet Bug

    Since the latest update when camera distance is at 0m on puppet camera to create first person, the puppet disappears, very frustrating. Happens with basic generic puppets even.

    Please fix as soon as possible this really affects my dream in development.

  3. Camera moves drastically

    Not the gadget of camera;the normal camera in edit mode,where there is the imp. Sometimes it moves forward abruptly for a few seconds, this is a small annoyance but sometimes it happens continuously and it is quite annoying to have to go back and that your camera and imp go forward all the time.

  5. FPS Camera disappearing camera

    There still hasnā€™t been any mentioning of puppets disappearing when the camera is set to 0m. My project had logic for the puppet holding a weapon with inventory selection but now itā€™s on hold because of this new update. Please give us information if this will be fixed.

  7. Camera Transition problems

    Hi. I have a problem with camera transitions. when I put a few cameras on a timeline. in the second that the camera is changing to the next camera and it is supposed to have a smooth movement as long as we set in the transition time, a fast jump occurs between two cameras and that one second of jump just kills the smoothness.

    I tried to fix it but anything I try when the cameras changes there is a second of glitchy transition and then it becomes smooth.

    you can see it in this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNFgt2qTP8I&feature=youtu.be

    EDIT:
    well, Iā€¦

  8. 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.

  9. R2 doesn't work in some games

    R2 in some games doesn't work. The best example is in "arts Dream". In the scene "The meridian forest". Its been a bug for 2 months now. Even after 2.11. Its not just me, in the comments its clear that other people have the same issue. I have tried resetting the controller still doesn't work. It doesn't happen to everyone, only some. My guess is that its a problem with older ps4's. Please look into it! I can't play the game! Thx

  10. Controller Sensor has no Local option for motion sensor

    The motion sensor output on a controller sensor has no local space option or toggle, which makes using the motion sensor in a 3D space invert certain axis (e.g. x axis) when turned around.

    Reproduction steps:


    1. Place a controller sensor down, and split the motion sensor output, placing the 'A' output into the X input of an advanced rotator.


    2. Note that pitching the controller downwards outputs a negative number into the rotator.


    3. Turn the camera 180 degrees around the Y axis (or just over 90 degrees), and notice that the downwards pitching now outputs a positive value into the rotator.

  11. Camera crazy after edit mode

    I go to play mode to test out my level.

    If I find a spot and go back into edit mode to fix something then reenter play mode the camera is all out of wack. Far away from the character and you can't even see them sometimes. It never used to do that and I haven't messed with any puppet camera settings In a long time.

    It's freaking me out

  12. Imp moving on its own a little

    Every once in a while my imp slowly moves on its own in one direction. Recentering the imp seems to fix it so it isnā€™t much of an issue, but it can be annoying when sculpting more precise builds. No idea why this happens.

  13. Right stick local wire overrides camera controls

    I'm busy making a third-person shoulder camera rig. The problem I picked up is that when I drag a wire out of the right stick local and hook it up to a gadget, the default controller sensor camera controls stops working.

    I was hoping that I could still get the values of right stick local, without affecting the camera controls.

  14. Motion controls not working + no way to switch back

    Was letting my friend mess around in share play, he uses motion controls and I don't, so he switched the option in settings. After I got the controller back in share play, motion controls were working properly.

    When I started the app later, however, I couldn't move my imp at all with motion controls (this had happened before and idk why) and I can't access the menu to turn it off. Motion works fine for others games too.

  15. Controller won't move the camera far from a sky gadget (Sculpting Mode)

    In assembly mode, sculpting, I used a sky gadget to get a plain grey sky, then put it far away to avoid mis-selecting it.

    I found the controller didn't move the camera too far in the opposite direction. ĀæLike if it was trying to be close to the gadget?.

    I can try to capture a video clip of the bug, it happened two different times in different creations.

    I'm using a ps pro and standard sony controller (no move)

  18. Photos taken from a deleted creation can no longer be used as thumbnails.

    So we have all probably hit the creation limit, or perhaps that's only me, but there is an issue with photos.
    Say for instance, you want to make a game thumbnail, so you get a new creation, take the photo, then just don't save the level. The photo appears when you go to your gallery, and it's saved to your system, but does not appear when selecting a cover photo. I know this is a small issue, but it would be nice to see it solved. (or notified of a solution, either works!)

  19. Y inversion does not work on L1 camera

    I use Y inversion, traveling around normally I push forward to look down, and back to look up. But holding the L1 key during the tutorial it suddenly reverses and opposite of normal. I have to push up to move the camera up (it should go down to match Y reversal) and when pushing down on R stick it should move up, but instead moves down. This is very confusing and goes against the whole idea of being able to reverse Y on games.
