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. 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.

  2. 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€¦

  3. 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€¦

  4. 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.

  5. 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! :)

  6. "My collection" gets reshuffled when entering a scene and exiting it

    Yesterday I went through every scene to save them private online which was a real struggle with 24+ scenes when always after exiting a scene "My collection" got randomly reshuffled and I had to exit it again and re-enter to have the most recent saved scenes in order again.

    Sorry to hear that another user has also encountered this issue.

    Thanks to the information you provided we were able to replicate it internally, I have made sure to add a bug for this behaviour.

  8. Collections losing tags

    Collections seem to randomly lose tags when updated (more specifically, on the save version page tags will sometimes be missing. If you back out without saving the tags won't be lost). I have experienced this with all my collections. The amount of lost tags seems to be completely random, the same collection sometimes loses only a few tags, sometimes all. Every single of my collections have had all their tags completely removed (and re-added by me) at least once. Some multiple times.

    The most recent case (on version 2.05):
    I was using the send to collection feature with the dreamā€¦

  9. Imp quest percentages don't update

    The "% of dreamers completed this quest" percentage does not update. The vast majority still show 0% (e.g "Magic Number", reach level 3), while "Start Dreaming 1" has been stuck at 20% since the full release.

  10. Cannot minimise search filters in Dream Shaping

    Previously in Dream Shaping, I was able to enter search criteria for elements (eg. "Elements + Newest". I could then press circle to minimise the search criteria, and enlarge the elements so that they could be seen clearly as I browsed through.

    Now, pressing circle returns to the Dream Shaping menu (the previous menu with the larger tiles etc).

    It would be nice to be able to set the criteria for a search, and then minimise the search filter fields in order to make the elements larger and easier to see.
