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. In-scene Text Displayer in Timeline moves when Timeline is placed into a Microchip.


    1. Create a timeline.

    2. Add text displayer to it and stretch its individual timing so it is visible for a period of time.

    3. Modify it so that it displays in-scene, and then place it where you want it to be located in the scene.

    4. Create a microchip.

    5. Move the entire timeline to the microchip.

    The text displayer should/may have moved within the scene to a new location. In my case, I had a text displayer on the ground in my scene, and it moved up and to the right quite a distance, deep within some scenery.

  2. Two different signals won't work on the same puppet interface input

    I was trying to make logic for a puppet to jump only when letting go of a button after holding it down for a certain amount of time. I also wanted another signal to make the puppet jump anytime I pushed a certain button.

    I did this by using a timer gadget (to start when a button is held), a NOT gate (to reset the time when not holding a button), a signal manipulator (set to invert input when timer is finished), and a keyframe to turn on the signal manipulator after the timer is finished.

    This worked to makeā€¦

  3. Default puppets microchip is off centre

    The puppet microchip is off centre when stamped down. The image below is a picture of a puppet that is newly stamped down and not edited in any way shape or form. You can clearly see that the microchip is off centre.

    I hope I'm not the only person who noticed this haha.

  5. Some scenes and objects don't count has saved online

    I can't even send you links to the objects/scenes which are part of Mimeo Prophecy and accessable via the dream because they don't show up on indreams.me as well.

    They always show up when updating my dream even if they just saved them private online and don't have a typical timestamp like every other scene which reads something like "Last saved online at h:m:s by raz0rbackzwei"

    If you want to look into it, some of the scenes are:
    "Ian's Room", "Bakery", "Orphanage right". Also a lot of objects from the city. Trees, houses, plane fields etc.

  6. Respawning triggers seemingly random animation-timelines to play.

    When my character dies and respawns, certain animation-timelines within the logic will automatically play, causing my character to move like crazy as it does several animations at the same time.

    I have removed all wires from these timelines and turned their power off. They will still play on respawn.

    I can create a new timeline and copy-paste the keyframes into the new timeline, and this seemed to solve the issue. However, the glitch just returns after a while. I have read other people having the same issue. One workaround is to create your own custom respawn-logic using teleporters etc. Butā€¦

  7. My character is stuck inside a remix loop. I can't release my character as private or public anymore

    My friend made a private creation using my character, they added a logic chip to it and I took the entire thing and put it into my original creation and saved it as a new version.

    Since that creation is still private I can't release my character unless my friend release his private creation and he can't do that unless I release the latest private version of my character.

    So it's stuck and I can't release it as private nor public anymore.

    This is my character that's affected.

    I don't know what to do. TwT

  10. Animating sun direction is now broken

    I had a gadget called "Day Night cycle V2" where I carefully synchronise a Syn&Sky gadget with a rotating physical Sun and Moon.
    It worked well, so that you can have a physical Sun, but synchronised water reflections.
    Now if I edit my keyframes even slightly, it totally breaks the synchronisation.
    Here is a video hightlighting the issue:

  12. Destroyer wired affected objects ignored

    A destroyer gadget will ignore wired affected objects when placed on a chip that is affecting an object.
    If the affected object(s) output is wired then the inheritance from the microchip should be ignored instead.

    Steps to reproduce:

    Stamp a shape
    Attach a microchip A
    In the microchip place another microchip B
    Place a destroyer on A or B
    Wire the affected object(s) output with microchip B
    Hit play
    Notice how your shape disappears entirely
    Expected result is only microchip B getting destroyed

    Either ignore the inheritance from the parent entirely or add an option to decide what behavior youā€¦

  13. Align to grid resizes shape

    I am trying to build something to scale. I am using cubes to draw out an outline as markers to set my sculpt scale.

    I select a sphere, stretch it to the number of segments at 1/4 grid scale that I want, retaining it's exact spherical shape. The intent is to then scale the object to fit my template.
    I go to 'align to grid' and the shape resets its size. It makes trying to make things with precision deeply frustrating.

  14. Preload Failed When Exiting Creation = Dreams Won't load.

    Last night I was creating my puppet animation when after I saved it I wanted to exit the creation.

    When I try to exit I got "Preload Failed".

    So I closed the application.
    This morning I have now tried to start up Dreams on my PS4PRO and after the cut scene and the information about Indreams.me. I get stuck in the loading screen.

    I can see my Imp and the made in dreams logo. Where you can see the game is trying to load but nothing happens.

    Game will not load.

    This the second time this has happened. First timeā€¦

  15. Text displayers not working until after youve entered text

    so if you put down a text displayer now it won't display on screen at all unless you put text in the first tab and then delete it.

    so if you want a no text Text displayer like just the background it used to just work by putting it down and then you would have just the background settings but now it won't display at all unless you actually you like type a letter into the Text displayer and then after you do that and delete the text it will work normally.

  16. Variable Modifiers - Strange Behavior

    Twice this week (and at least once during early access) I have experienced an issue where variable modifiers suddenly stop working correctly.

    The first time it occurred this week, a variable modifier set to "Add 1" would not affect the variable the first time it was pulsed. After the failed initial pulse, it seemed to work every time. When comparing the working scene to the bugged version, there appeared to be no changes that involved this set of logic.

    In the second instance (shown in the screenshot) the variable modifier set to "Get" was outputting an incorrect value. The onlyā€¦

  17. Variables turning to zero

    The variables in my scene are randomly turning to zero in heavy / intensive scenes.
    Is this a memory management issue within dreams ?
    You can see in the attached link , the difficulty setting in the left hand side , you can see it dropping in and out.
    This is also happening with other variables.

  20. Teleporter sending a signal prematurely when used with a signal manipulator

    I tried to do a 'slow' teleportation by powering up a teleporter gradually with a signal manipulator. After the teleportation is complete, the teleporter should send signals for matching the target orientation and target position. This should activate the next mode with the selector and move on to the next phase. However, instead of sending the signals once the teleported puppet has reached its final position and orientation, it sends the signals pretty much right away even though the puppet has barely had time to move.


    1. Create a puppet

    2. Create a tag for teleportation and name it

    3. Open up theā€¦
