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!

  2. Dreams unable to load, since early access, and is still happening in final release..

    So i have had this bug since early access. Basically im unable to load most dreams 90 percent of the time. For example:

    i will load Dreams from my playstation. Then go to browse in dreamaverse. Select a game and hit 'play'. Then the loading thing will just spin forever and never load the dream.

    OR, alternatively when it DOES load a game/dream, it will often not get past the next loading screen or level, and just sit there with the spinning swirl and i cant even hit 'start' to exit out. Instead i have to hold my PS buttonā€¦

  3. 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,
    PeteS

  4. "Following" shouldn't include dreamers completing Imp Quests.

    I honestly don't care that someone i follow has completed xxx imp quest, especially since it doesn't even specify what that required.

    All it does is spam my Notifications and make important things get lost, like creators updating or publishing new levels. I have to scroll for like 2 minutes just to see all notifications of the past 24h and 90% are imp quests. (and i only follow 8 people!)

  5. Calculators treat ā€œ8 valuesā€ fat wires differently than 2-4 values

    Create a combiner and use it to combine 8 different signals. Connect that to a Calculator, and use that calculator to multiply the fat wireā€™s values by 3, by setting the slider on the Calculatorā€™s other operand.

    Use a splitter and number displayers to inspect the values of the eight signals coming out of the calculator (or search ā€œsignal displayā€ on the dreamiverse)

    Observe that the values were multiplied by (3,0,0,0,0,0,0,0).

    Tweak the Combiner to change its type to ā€œ4 valuesā€ and observe that now the calculator multiplies by (3,3,3,3).

    I would expect that ā€œ8 valuesā€ be consistent with theā€¦

  6. Animations permanently destroyed without ability to undo

    Take a puppet and give it some nice animations
    Press triangle on the object just above the hips

    You are now in the ā€œrepositionā€ connectors mode.

    After doing this all animations to the parts above the hips hips in the animation hierarchy are gone.
    Pressing undo does nothing.

    This is on a puppet

  7. Invisible group within an unemitted object cannot be edited

    I have a house
    Inside the house group is another group of furniture.
    The furniture only becomes visible if the house is upside down, otherwise it is destroyed.

    When the house emits upside down, furniture appears like itā€™s supposed to.

    However now itā€™s impossible to edit the furniture group.
    Even with ā€œpreview visibilityā€ turned on I still can not see the group of furniture

    The only way I can see it is if I make sure a wire connected to the group is visible, but even then the entire group is almost 99% transparent and cannot be selected.

    Even deletingā€¦

  8. look at rotator breaks follower

    A follower affecting a cube turns off normally, but with a look-at-rotator in the mix, turning the follower off doesn't seem to stop the follow movement.

    Attaching both a video link and file (of the same video). It's very clear.

    Hi VinceKully,

    Thank you for reporting the issue. We have logged a bug in the database.

    The team have suggested to set the sculpt to movable and see if this helps.

    Thanks,

  9. Releasing and submitting to the game jam failed and erased (overwrote?) my game!

    Hi. Yesterday I attempted to release my first game and submit it to the 'One button' game jam. When trying to release it I got a 'Publishing element failed' error, then when I returned to the 'Select your entry' page or 'My Creations' page, it had removed the latest version of my game, leaving an almost blank version from a week ago. I cannot get the latest version back.

    I've upload an unlisted video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzEoe80T2rE&t=639s.

    Some notes:
    5:05 - I initially try to release as Playable. It asks me to also release various previous versions of the gameā€¦

  10. Adding "Art's Dream" prizes to my scene made it unable release as playable

    After completing the jaw dropping Mm Dream, 'Art's Dream' I was excited to use some of the prize bubbles I gathered in my playthrough in my own scenes.

    I have a couple scenes that I have worked on during the early access period and have been uploading as private, playable and public - testing each publishing way to become more comfortable and understand the different release capabilities.

    It wasn't until I added some of the new Mm "Art's Dream" assets to my scene that I ran into some issues. My scenes became unable to upload, even as public or private.

    Hi TAPgiles,

    There were a number of fixes on the latest patch, though I’m not aware of a specific fix regarding Emitters or Timelines.

    Good to know that it’s no longer occurring for you though.

    If you do experience this again, please feel free to create a new ticket for it.

    Thanks for your continued efforts on Dreams!

    PeteS

  12. 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%.

  13. Art's Dream: Flight control setting is forgotten

    During the final sequence of Art's Dream, the player experiences flight with non-inverted Y controls and the option to switch to inverted Y by pressing Triangle. If the player dies and restarts, the setting is forgotten. The setting is also forgotten between scenes which leads to more deaths which leads to more forgetting and more deaths and so on.

    Until Dreams supports global variables, this may be impossible to fix. This is a great reason to have globals.

  14. View in random position when changing to play mode

    Most often happens the first time play mode is used for a new creation, but happens at other times also. Doesn't happen every time, but it's fairly often until it settles down and then it doesn't happen again.

    Doesn't seem linked to camera bookmarks.

    Examples:

  15. Homespace constantly refreshes after puppet death

    After placing the puppet D-BUG from Artā€™s Dream in my homespace and controlling it, I left it sitting on a shallow water cookie from the welcome garden sculptures. Sometime shortly after, I deleted the water cookie with the puppet still on it. After that point, the homespace is in a constant state of refreshing, as if the character is dying over and over again. Pressing undo did not fix the issue, and it seems impossible to locate the puppet anymore to delete it from the world. After some time of frustration looking for a solution, I decided to try replicatingā€¦

  16. MAJOR BUG: "Preload failed" destroys creations

    Most of my creations, many with hours of work put into them, are now inaccessible to me and seemingly corrupted. I see this has happened to others, and even those who have worked on it with Mm (Tom Dent), a solution has yet to be reported. This is virtually game-breaking and seemingly could happen to anyone.

    If this has happened to you, it might help to use PS+ Cloud saves in the future, after every Version you make. I don't see it as a normal habit that a game should demand, but it could save your entire project! Even Ifā€¦

  17. theres a bug where players can like and comment on a dream within a dream thats is set to always invisible and unlisted

    i have a dream within a dream but even tho the second dream is set to always invisible and unlisted it should never be seen by the player but yet people are still putting likes on it.

    i have a dream within a dream because having 6-30 scenes in 1 dream then having 8 dreams in a dream is better than just having 1 dream with 100 scenes in it.

    when i pause the game at any time in my game it always displays the first dream image and not the second one.

    i just want all likes and commentsā€¦

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
