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. My enemy (puppet deluxe) wonā€™t emit again after emitting once

    So I have a puppet/creature that Iā€™m using as an enemy in my game that Iā€™m working on. I made him during early access and Iā€™ve had no problems with him during that time. But once I upgraded to the full game I noticed that he wonā€™t emit more than once. Just to make sure that it wasnā€™t just a problem with my level, I did the same set up in a new scene and I still had the same problem. So I tried the same thing with other objects and another deluxe puppet and they worked just fine. Itā€¦

  2. Clipping through terrain

    I have a selector which chooses different types of terrain by activating key frames which make the ground collidable and visible. The issue is that if a character walks up to a part of the terrain they can walk through it.
    The collision for that terrain is definitely on. I've tried other physics options (low medium and high) all the same result.
    The strange part is that if I enter create mode then go back to play mode. The terrain is fixed to what it should be but that wont work for other players of my dream.
    I'm using versionā€¦

  3. No character model in update mode

    I have remixed a character from Drinkwater200's Unreal Engine 4 Puppet, however it no longer displays the character in update mode. Does this mean character models are automatically updated? It's the same when I remixed other people creations as well.

  5. The music for all ears quest seems to be bugged. Canā€™t complete the quest.

    I canā€™t complete the quest. Somehow after trying many times I got 2 out of 3 new pieces of music released, but canā€™t get the third one.

    Hello redseph13

    Sorry that your having problems with Dreams.

    Are you still having this problem or have you unlocked the trophy for vising the dream queens homespace?

    The trophy is linked to the imp quest so if the imp quest has not been unlocked then the trophy will also not have unlocked.

    Perchance you remember what actions you had done before trying to unlock this trophy? for example had you played Arts Dream or spent some time in dreamshaping?

    If you could let us know it would really help us track down any potential problem.

    Hope to hear from you soon

  7. When hovering over the ā€˜Switch on/offā€™ button on the switch, the popup hint text displays twice over itself

    Iā€™ve not done much testing but this is what is happening to me. Itā€™s minor but still a bug nonetheless

  8. Music of Dreams and Art of Dreams cannot be downloaded when Pre-ordering the game!

    Hello Mm! Super Happy about the launch of Dreams! :)

    I have noticed an issue, I'm a person who preordered the game 2 days before launch. Before buying Dreams I was also informed that people who preorder the game will receive the Dreams theme (which I did get), the Art of Dreams and The Music of Dreams, which I didn't receive in my downloads. Some people are also only receiving the Art of Dreams and Music of Dreams without the theme. Could you please look further into this? Thank you.

  9. Button doesnā€™t trigger cutscene in cinematic sound design tutorial

    Once in the ā€˜Cinematic Sound Designā€™ tutorial, complete steps all the way up to finalising the sound timeline for the double rising platform cutscene.

    Once you go to trigger said cutscene in play mode, nothing happens upon pressing the button. Almost as if the wiring inside the button hadnā€™t reached the animation of the platforms?

  11. Keyframe gadget blend types???

    When you place down a keyframe, it doesnā€™t let you change the blend type. It is always ā€œease outā€ and if you want a different blend type for that keyframe, you have to use a timeline and a separate keyframe and blend them together like that. It would just be more convenient if we could change blend type on a single, placed-down-in-a-chip keyframe.

    Hello duckenomics

    Thanks for your post.

    It’s intentional that the blend types are disabled when the key frame is not on a timeline.

    If you wish to set the blend type on a keyframe before hand you could simply place the keyframe on a timeline first, and then set the blend type. Once set you can remove the key frame from the timeline.

    However the blend options will still be disabled and will not be applied while the keyframe is loose in a scene.

    Let us know if this information helps you.

    Cheers,
    Mark M

  12. Feedback.indreams.me mobile website bug

    The vote box covers the title text of big submissions making them hard to read. Also, I canā€™t see the name of the person who uploaded the bug or when it was uploaded, which is pretty crucial information.

  13. "Number/Range" name and tooltip doesn't make much sense

    I've never understood the naming of this setting of the number displayer.

    According to the tooltip: If inputting a number value from another gadget, using this slider will give you a range.

    What is the definition of "range" here? This gadget never displays a range of numbers at once, or a "from - to" type display.

    It may mean if the setting is already set and then you wire something in it will default to the modulate blend mode. Though the term "range" does equate to "multiply" in my mind.

    Also, if they user plus the wire in while it'sā€¦

  14. 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.

    Hello TAPgiles,

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    This appears to be a style choice rather than a joint bug.

    There is an idle pose keyframe which is active which is tilting her head. This enabled when she is possessed aswell. This is located on animation circuit on Kumi’s logic microchip, the key frame is named Idle pose.

    Hopefully this information helps.

  16. Chick's idle pose: head is tilted to the side

    From the "welcome home" kit and game. Regardless of the motion controls. Possible joint rotation issue. Looks ahead find when walking or running.

  17. Imp Possession Sound Automatically Off With Force Possession?

    Not sure if itā€™s a bug or just change.

    I was following the instructions from the QA stream where at the end itā€™s shown how to use a timer, key frame, and force possession to hide the imp possession sound.

    I tried this and it worked, but then I worked backwards by deleting the timer, then keyframe, checking each time to see what the difference was in game mode. And it ended up being that even with neither the timer or keyframe, just having force possession on, I didnā€™t hear the imp sound. (I was rewinding each time.)

    Could itā€¦

    Hello DarkFishDays

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    To clear up any confusion, we did make change here.

    If you load a scene where a controller sensor with force possession is on, users should not hear the possession sound effect.

    If however you turn on the force possession tweak once in a scene you should be able to hear the possession sound effect.

    Hopefully this information helps.

    Thanks for the post.

  18. 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€¦

    Hello Frogmeister,

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    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 bolcks are arranged correctly the prize box should become coloured.

    Please get in touch if your still having problems.

    Thanks for the post.

  19. 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.

  20. Image zoomed in on old TV

    Hi,

    I have an old Panasonic Viera 720p TV (TH-42PV70F) from 2007 and the image is zoomed in all the time.
    This cuts off text and UI in a lot of creations (see attachment).

    Unfortunatly there is no option on my tv to solve this issue and I had it before with other games.
    Most of the time it's not a big deal but it's annoying if a part of the UI gets cut off.

    It seems that Dreams doesn't use the "Display Area Settings" in the "Sound And Screen" section of the PS4 settings.
    Would it be possible toā€¦

    Hello Emperor_Mordred,

    I am sorry to hear that your having problems.

    In Dreams we do try to make sure that any UI we create here does sit well within the screen edges.

    Unfortunately in regards to the creations made by other users, its a bit more difficult to make sure that UI elements do fit on screen.

    Its certainly worth raising in the feedback channel.

    Thank you for raising this post.
