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. 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€¦

  2. Scaling tutorial bug makes it impossible to progress to create mode without wiping all dreams data from your ps4.

    Mm!

    Urgent QA message for the new Dreams tutorial!

    When I was going through the scaling home space editor tutorial my friend somehow made the rectangle disappear permanently and it won't respawn on restarting or resetting.

    Hear ye hear ye!

    Make a restart tutorial option or some other such fix you deem appropriate. Class A bug! Completely locks players out of create mode! šŸ””šŸ””šŸ””

    LOVE YOU MEDIA MOLECULE!

  4. Boil effect seems to be tied to other effects.

    All effects than affect the opacity of the fleck (boil, flow, and evaporate) affect the speed of the boil. It's as if the highest value is used for the boil effect.

    So then if you have flow on 50% and boil is less than 50%, that boil setting does nothing, and visually the boil is at 50%.

  5. Reference frame, engine and gyroscope

    Hello. Why the reference frame doesn't work with the gyroscope and the engine. I wanted to make a moving object with animation, but if there is a motor or gyroscope, it does not work, or moves to the recording location.And if you immediately put a gyroscope or engine, it is not even recorded.

  6. Surface Snap rotates the other guides.

    When you combine surface snap with another guide like kaleidoscope, everything gets rotated 90Ā°

    Turn on surface snap and kaleidoscope and paint on a flat surface. The kaleidoscope is not snapped to the surface. Its rotated 90Ā°.

    Or

    Turn on surface snap, paint on a flat surface, tweak the painting and add positional duplicates, on disc.
    The duplicates are rotated 90Ā°

  7. Negative ruffle does nothing for paintings

    Seems like it should be 0 - 100, as negative values have no effect.

  8. Wireless receiver outputs a signal when powered rather than when a signal is received


    1. Place a wireless receiver and power it with, for example a press of the cross button.

    2. Make sure it does not receive a signal, so have it set to receive a signal from a different button press or has no transmitter set at all.

    3. Attach the output of the wireless receiver to the add input of a counter with a target of 5.

    4. Start the scene with R3 and press X to power the wireless receiver.

    5. View the counter, it will have gone up even though it has received no transmission.

    6. If the receiver has no transmitter set, it willā€¦

  9. Corrupted Data. Can't load any of my creations.

    I got an error saying my data was corrupted. Didn't get kicked out of Dreams but restarting it left me at the black screen with the circle loading. Uploaded my save data and then deleted and reinstalled Dreams. Let it fully download and now I can play, but all of my creations are giving me the error of "Preload fail. There was a problem downloading this creation" Hope my creation can be saved. I have a lot of hours into it.

  10. Large Number Fidelity Issues

    As far as I can tell, a number cannot have more than 7 digits of accuracy. If I want to set a value to 2,374,729.4, for exampleā€”I canā€™t. The decimal place will round to either .00, .25, .5, or .75. If I try to go smaller (and use the hundredths place rather than taking up the millions place) I get the same rounding issues. This can lead to some mathematical issues in logic that might be hard to debug. Some clarification about this or an expansion of available accuracy (significant figures, I guess?) would be great. Iā€™m trying to storeā€¦

  11. 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€¦

  13. Notifications limited to 20

    Since early access and still I have never seen the notifications have a number higher than 20. Even when I have more. Thanks to the influx of new players, I got 75 notifications over night but the notifications still only said 20.

  14. Adding link to game on profile not appearing properly

    So as some may know, you can add links to your games on your profile.

    This feature works for me on some of my games, but for one of them it doesn't link it properly for some reason, here's my profile you can see for yourself: https://indreams.me/Onatauo

    My game "Pong" appears properly, but my second game "GLOW-BOTS" doesn't appear properly, I added both links the same way but the second game doesn't appear properly.

  15. Community Jam vote issue

    I'm unable to process the community Jam voting due to creation "way back through time" it continues to loop over and over meaning I can't complete the dream and refresh for more community entries to see. There's no way to process past this which is pretty frustrating. I contacted the creator but they seem to be unaware of the issue. A few other players have hit this brick wall too.

  16. Loading into a dream sometimes causes loading wheel of infinity

    Occasionally when I start playing in a user made dream, the dream won't load and gives a loading wheel which i can't back out of, forcing me to close and restart the game entirely. It happens either immediately when hopping into a dream in the dreamiverse or after i play a handful of them. I've had to restart the game multiple times a day! I'm on the latest version 2.05 and base original PS4.

  17. 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.

  18. Jam judging shows the creator's name and scene name when playing a dream

    As seen here: (limited time video) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/550393383?t=4h35m7s

    Can't prove that was the cause, but it was FlashMedallion's entry, a book cover recreation I think.

  19. Do Not Receive Indreams Forum Notifications

    I never receive notifications from feedback.indreams.me. And I cannot change my email address on the site; there is no "edit" button for the email field in my settings page.

    This is quite problematic for me. I spend a lot of time on this forum trying to help people, leaving responses on posts. But if they reply to those comments I either never find out, or I happen to stumble across their post after they've left the new comment. If I received notifications it would mean I don't miss these responses and so can answer further questions they may have andā€¦
