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. Canā€™t deselect hovered note

    Create a music gadget and go into the piano roll.

    Draw some notes with the pencil tool, then unequip the pencil.

    Select some notes with X

    Hover the imp over one of the selected notes and press circle.

    The expected result is that the notes would deselect, same as with regular object or gadget selections. However it doesnā€™t work if the imp is hovering over a note, and you have to move the imp to empty space and press circle again to actually deselect.

  2. Multi-clone doesnā€™t space evenly when grabbing a gadget off-center

    Stamp a gadget on a microchip

    Clone it, but point the imp tip at the very top edge of the gadget before grabbing.

    Press dpad right a few times to multiclone.

    Observe that the second through nth clones are closer together than the first and second clones are.

    This issue does not occur when grabbing the gadget by its very center.

  3. Coat Mode tools apply to hidden objects when using ā€œhide everything elseā€

    Create three cubes, and group two of them.

    Scope into the group, and enable ā€œhide everything elseā€

    Enter Coat Mode and select the Hue tool.

    Enable the volume brush by clicking the button or holding dpad up

    Hold r2 while moving the brush around the place where the hidden cube would be.

    Scope out, and observe that the hidden cube was accidentally hue-shifted.

    This issue does not seem to occur when hiding objects with the Hide tool.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the feedback, however we can confirm this is not an issue. The “Hide everything else” tool acts differently to the Hide tool itself. The Hide everything else is there to just help with focusing on that specific group while hiding the rest of the clutter on screen. While the Hide tool is designed to hide things in scenes.

  4. 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,

  5. Puppet base breaks z sorting for rendering selection highlights of puppet's sculpts

    When scoped into a puppet, even when the puppet base is behind the puppet's sculpts, it's always considered to be in front of the puppet's sculpts for the purpose of rendering their selection highlights.

    Repro steps:


    1. Create a puppet.

    2. Scope into the puppet.

    3. Select one of the puppet's sculpts.

    4. Adjust the camera angle so that the puppet base is partially behind the selected sculpt.

    Observed: The selection highlight is rendered around the part of the sculpt that doesn't obscure the puppet base, as if the puppet base were in front of the sculpt instead of behind it.

    Expected: The selectionā€¦

  6. Publishing element failed

    I'm having an issuing publishing about 15 scenes as public. I have 15 scenes that had been built based off a previous scene. When I go to publish it gives me publishing element failed. I went back and published every element it was showing needing to be released to publish the 15 scenes.

    Now the "original scene" for the 15 is showing published I can open and save it public no problem. Yet when I open any of the following scenes it says I need to make that "original scene" public. It's asking me to make public a specific olderā€¦

  7. Text boxes displayed on screen bugs

    Here are some things I discovered to be misbehaving using on screen text displayers


    • Text handles shouldn't scale with the text because in the case of an icon such as the <X> button, when you make it really big you can't move it on the screen on either axis because the handles that scale take priority over movement as they are as big as the big icon itself.


    • Text box handles work, but won't visually show up when text is on top of another (think of a text over a background layer)


    • On a similar note, when you place someā€¦

  8. Cant publish elements. Cant publish scenes. Cant publish dreams. Cant collaborate.

    Literally all of these things worked before early access ended and now none of them work. I am getting "private creations" errors when there are none, I am getting "publishing element failed" errors, my editing doesnt show in my friends scene even in update mode and I am a collaborator. It wont let me publish my dream because it says his creations are private but on his says they are all published fully and publicly. All game breaking. And worst of all, mm has all but ignored me and many others on the forums. If I cant publish my stuffā€¦

  10. Edit source object bug?

    When I tried to edit a source object from a scene it was in, the game asked to save changes, but then didnā€™t take me out of the scene to edit the object. The screen went blurry but I could still move around and edit the scene. It wouldnā€™t let me pause and exit so I had to close the game completely.

  11. In-scene Text Displayer in Timeline moves when Timeline is placed into a Microchip.


    1. Create a timeline.

    2. Add text displayer to it and stretch its individual timing so it is visible for a period of time.

    3. Modify it so that it displays in-scene, and then place it where you want it to be located in the scene.

    4. Create a microchip.

    5. Move the entire timeline to the microchip.

    The text displayer should/may have moved within the scene to a new location. In my case, I had a text displayer on the ground in my scene, and it moved up and to the right quite a distance, deep within some scenery.

  12. Physics Issues

    I'm making a bowling game (It's playable now under "We Bowling in VR!"). I'm having issues with the physics, though... I have to make the bowling ball weigh far more than it does in reality in order to keep the puppet's superhuman strength from being able to fling the ball 20 feet out. The side effect of making it weigh so much that it does fall to the ground realistically, it makes the puppet struggle to carry it, so the ball bounces around suspended from the imp beam like it was a rubber band. If I put the ball's realā€¦

    While on internet I cant access my creations that are saved to my PS4, they are not saved online, so this is troubling. My game freezes.

    Hi,

    Thank you for reporting the issue, could you please provide us with your internet upload and download speed please? Are you using a wired or wireless connection?

    Could you send a screenshot of your creations list?

  14. My character is stuck inside a remix loop. I can't release my character as private or public anymore

    My friend made a private creation using my character, they added a logic chip to it and I took the entire thing and put it into my original creation and saved it as a new version.

    Since that creation is still private I can't release my character unless my friend release his private creation and he can't do that unless I release the latest private version of my character.

    So it's stuck and I can't release it as private nor public anymore.

    This is my character that's affected.

  16. Working character breaks when updated into a scene and when stamped into a scene

    I've encountered a major problem with my current project. I've created a advanced fps character with a lot of logic (Name: Character.FPSPuppet). Due to my workflow there are a lot of wireless emitters and receivers. In the last session I implemented logic for shotgun projectiles on two shotguns in my character.
    After this I wanted to update that character in another scene (Name: Workspace.IndustrialBasement).
    There I encountered the first bug. The Colt M1911 pistol changes position after the update. It's idle position has been offset to a position that is more center of the screen. The other guns don't seemā€¦

    Hi samuel girouard,

    Thank you for the feedback, however we can confirm this is not an issue for Dreams but as an overall issue that can occur on the PS4 hardware. If a title is played and a power outage occurs, there is a chance that save data is lost.

    I would suggest you back up your saves onto a USB or External hard drive. This doesn’t to require a fast internet connection and usually means your files are safe incase this issue does occur again. The dreams file size is usually a few GB so it wont be a long process to backup your files onto something external. I have attached a guide on how to do this. https://support.playstation.com/s/article/Manage-PS4-Saved-Data-on-USB-Storage?language=en_US

    Hopefully that helps and apologies for not being able to recover your previous save data.

  20. a possible bug where it says +1% for GamePlay but the thermo never went up by 1.

    i copied an object then paste, the object could just be a default square but for some reason its adding +1% to gameplay when the object cant move and has no logic, is this normal?

    when i copy and paste it keep adding +1% to gameplay when its a clone, shouldnt only the first object count then the clones of it dont cost anything?

    i have 75% gameplay and a clone with no logic or anything related to gameplay and it still adds +1% to gameplay but it doesnt show as 76% like it should so as a clone itā€¦
