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. Deletion tutorial bug game breaking

    Hello, I'm experience a game breaking bug with the deleting tutorial. This involves being unable to progress as I have already deleted all the objects but cannot complete tutorial. And tutorials can not be restarted. Neither can I spawn objects to replace the ones deleted. Additionally, removing all game data does not solve the issue as I've done this multiple times with both save data and application data. No tiny objects seems to be present as I have comb the area several times. Is there any way to reset this as I cannot continue with the majority of the gameā€¦

  2. Wrong tutorial instructions in Start dreaming Part 1 of 4

    If you change your control to the left/right sticks instead of the motion movement with your controller the tutorial in German (don't know how it is in English) will say that you need to reach the last island with your imp moving up and down with L1 and the left stick up and down but it's the right stick.

    The controls are different so there should be a different tutorial for each control.

  3. I got stuck on the TUTORIAL HAS BEEN SAVED screen after finishing the final part of the Start Dreaming: Motion Controllers Part 1 of 4.

    After finishing the final part of the tutorial after walking Connie into the doorway I got the ending screen as usual but the CONTINUE button is not letting me leave. I have tried all of the buttons on both controllers as well as the DS4 that I also have connected. The only way out I can imagine is quitting to the PS menu and reopening the game.

    I tried reproducing this but it didn't break on my second try. I did notice that my tutorial progress wasn't saved, but the level itself had saved and the stairs were by theā€¦

  4. prizes didn't save online

    I've completed the homespace tutorial on one playstation, but after I continued to play on another playstation and my prize progress did not transfer. So in more detail, I had uploaded my saves from one ps4 that was still in early access. Then on another ps4 when dreams released for early access players I completed the homespace tutorial and unlocked all prizes. When I played back on my own PS4 at home I redownloaded my saves before starting (which were my saves from early access), then started Dreams and didn't have to redo the tutorial, had all online unlocked etc.ā€¦

  5. Headless Cuthbert in new tutorials

    Well, when in edit mode in some of the new tutorials, currently seeing it in the controller sensor tutorial, Cuthbert has lost his head, quite literally Iā€™m afraid šŸ˜± Shows up in play mode just fine, but a headless Cuthbert is a little distracting when youā€™re trying to listen to the tutorial :)

  6. The narrator got the strafe command wrong.

    In the beginner tutorial, the narrator says that to strafe you need to press L1 and then move the RIGHT stick. It should be L1 + LEFT stick, though.

    Hi there VsAssassin!

    Thank you for reaching out about your issue. The “Start Dreaming Part 1 of 4 (Left & Right Sticks)” tutorial is made for the Left & Right Sticks control scheme; this can be changed in My Preferences. Using L1 and the Right Stick to strafe up and down is correct functionality for this scheme.

    The Start Dreaming tutorials will have the corresponding control scheme in the title.

    Cheers!

  9. Logic Tutorial

    In Logic Tutorial Scoring, Timers and Prize Bubbles, when I switch from Edit to Play mode, the screen freezes on the initial viewpoint and my score and timer (showing 0 and 0.00) just rapidly flash. The whole screen is unfocused and Connie is missing. The 0ā€™s and my imp are the only elements in focus. Imp can move and squish but cannot posses Connie as sheā€™s missing. Basically canā€™t test anything. Iā€™m saved at start of #11 of 12. Game version 2.05 - first purchased from PS Store 13 Feb, one day before the countdown for preorder was finished.

  12. Intro sequence unable to break down the wall

    Hi,

    I've bought the game today, and came across the following bug, when the tutorial asks me to break down the wall of doubt the 4th brick bugs out and i am unable to progress, softlocking me.

    I have a link to the issue here: https://youtu.be/hjQD-JK1xqM

    I've tried this 5 times, reinstalled the game and used a different PSN account, and ensured I am up to date. I haven't a clue whats happening but the dreams website shows that I've played 5 creations, and im guessing all of them are the intro.

    Please advise, I am unable to play theā€¦

    Hello EpicGuy012

    Sorry to hear that you having trouble with dreams.

    I have taken a look at the video and there are a few places where the boot flow is misbehaving.

    Would you be able to confirm if your playing dreams as a digital copy or were you running a disc copy?

    Also if you had to updated your firmware when you installed dreams or if you had the latest firmware when you started dreams?

    If it turns out you updated the PS4 system when you were installing dreams it might be related to the firmware installation.

    I would urge you to back up the save data for dreams and send it to us at the following email
    hello@mediamolecule.com

    The alternative idea is to try reinstalling your PS4 firmware. There is a guide here which covers the steps required to reinstall the PS4 firmware in safe mode.

  13. Second tutorial not available after completing first

    I completed part 1/4 of the first tutorial using DS4. I accidentally restarted part 1/4 rather than starting part 2/4 so I early exited part 1/4. I then completed the remaining parts 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4. But in order to automatically be presented with the option of starting the second tutorial I actually had to recomplete that redo of part 1/4 from which I had earlier exited. Once redone I was presented the option of starting the second tutorial.

  14. Have to start some tutorials all over again since last update.

    Since the latest update, some but not all of my in-game tutorials have reset so I can't remember where I was at with them as it has been a while since I last watched them. For the ones I am certain I have done but am only half though it looks like I will have to start them over again to get to where I was.

     It seems like a bug to me because it's not all of them. Only some. Like with my paint one it says fully complete which is true. With another, it says half complete which

  15. Scoring tutorial thinks the name of the first gadget has been set when it hasn't in the tutorial

    In part 2 it explicitly said we wouldn't change the name. So there's actually only 1 named score gadget in the scene.

    In part 5 when we add a score modifier and first tweak it, the name is set to Score, but this it normally says "Score to modify..." as the value is blank.

    In part 11 it talks about cycling through the 2 names of the score gadgets. But there is only 1 named score, so it doesn't work the way shown in the video.

  16. Trying to get past the tutorial

    When trying to complete the tutorial section I am asked to copy a block 3 times in order to reach the prize. I do so but I cannot get the third block to line up correctly. I have been trying for ages. The block beeps and I leave it in that position and can easily reach the prize, but it the prize stays white and I cannot collect it. I am becoming extremely frustrated at this! Make the prizes collectable if you can reach them, even if the blocks aren't in exactly the correct place.

    Hello frogmeister,

    I think this may have been answered already, looks like there was a post in feedback and in bugs.

    It sounds like your solved the problem with the clone homespace imp quest.

    Currently the prize will remain white until all the user has cloned the pink block twice and then place each of these clone inside the dotted lines. Once the blocks are arranged correctly the prize box should become coloured.

    Please get in touch if your still having problems.

    Thanks for the post.

    Hello TAPgiles

    Thanks for the post.

    good spot that the Voice over doesn’t tell you where the seesaw icon is.

    However the video itself does cover the location of the physical properties tab of the sculpt.

    This is the 5th tab in the sculpt tweak menu and uses the icon of a newtons cradle.

    Once selected the see-saw icon should be the very first tweak on this page.

    Hope the information helps.

    Cheers,
    Mark M

  18. Messed up placement in grab tutorial, now cannot advance

    Unfortunately in the grab tutorial right in the beginning of the game, the game told me the block was safe to place down and I cannot move it now that I'm in the strafing tutorial! As you can see in the screen shot, my cone character cant jump high enough to complete the tutorial. Anyone have a fix for this? I cant grab the block or reset its position.

  19. Can't progress past tutorial

    On the 6th clone tutorial I am asked to make 2 copies and rotate the last so I can reach the prize. I do so but cannot collect the prize. I can reach it easily but it stays white and I cannot collect it. Very very frustrating as I can't progress to the create mode. Please make all prizes collectable if you can reach them, even if the block is not in exactly the right place.
    Update - I've found out what the problem was. Not all 3 blocks were aligned correctly. This needs addressing as it almost made meā€¦
