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. Puppet base breaks z sorting for rendering selection highlights of puppet's sculpts

    When scoped into a puppet, even when the puppet base is behind the puppet's sculpts, it's always considered to be in front of the puppet's sculpts for the purpose of rendering their selection highlights.

    Repro steps:


    1. Create a puppet.

    2. Scope into the puppet.

    3. Select one of the puppet's sculpts.

    4. Adjust the camera angle so that the puppet base is partially behind the selected sculpt.

    Observed: The selection highlight is rendered around the part of the sculpt that doesn't obscure the puppet base, as if the puppet base were in front of the sculpt instead of behind it.

    Expected: The selectionā€¦

  2. Publishing element failed

    I'm having an issuing publishing about 15 scenes as public. I have 15 scenes that had been built based off a previous scene. When I go to publish it gives me publishing element failed. I went back and published every element it was showing needing to be released to publish the 15 scenes.

    Now the "original scene" for the 15 is showing published I can open and save it public no problem. Yet when I open any of the following scenes it says I need to make that "original scene" public. It's asking me to make public a specific olderā€¦

  3. Update Mode Won't Let Me Select Object

    Tried playing my level through with headphones, only to realize there was a sound effect stamped somewhere in the scene I didn't want to play. So i went into Update mode, and pressed select object so I could delete the sound effect. Only every time I press select object, it just sends me back into edit mode without anything selected so I can't delete the sound. Please help!!! Is this a glitch, or am I doing something wrong?

    Hi CJ M

    Thanks for responding.

    I’m glad to hear it’s no longer occurring for you now.

    If you happen to have this issue pop up again, then please let us know again in a new ticket.

    If it is indeed a bug, we’d like to investigate it further so it stops happening.

    Many thanks,
    PeteS

  4. I tried to animate the text box in text displayer go from blue to red(yellow and green route)

    When you do so.... It will go black somewhere in the animation and when it finished it will go back to normal.

  5. To all who have a problem: Mm wonĀ“t answer you

    Mm hasn't been seen in the forum for several months. Therefore, it is useless to report a bug (actually)

    To Mm: Please give us a sign of life!

  6. Paint is broken

    I had a sculpture of a cigarette with smoke trailing off of it and now the trail of smoke is completely gone without me even touching the thing. This bug started to happen a couple of weeks right after the vr update. Can I even trust this game to make a game???

    Hi Justin Neely,

    I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing this problem.

    Could I just ask for some more information so we can look into this for you?

    Do you have a link to your creation so we can take a look?

    Has this happened to more than one painting or just this specific one?

    Is it still happening with any new painted objects since the update?

    Thanks,
    PeteS

  7. First Person Camera Puppet Bug

    Since the latest update when camera distance is at 0m on puppet camera to create first person, the puppet disappears, very frustrating. Happens with basic generic puppets even.

    Please fix as soon as possible this really affects my dream in development.

  8. Selector currently selected port input overwritten by port inputs

    Lets assume we are dealing with a 3 port selector in passthrough mode.
    There is an input to the "currently selected" port (lets say 2). This should force the selector to only passthrough port 2, BUT if one wires all the inputs to the 3 ports to one signal, the selector will switch (probably for 1 frame, I did not test for timing) to port 3 before setting back to port 2 when a signal hits.

    This is rather frustrating because in order to work around this (for now) one must sacrifice a "dummy" port at the bottom of theā€¦

  9. My dreams randomly corrupted and made me loose almost a half a year of hard long work

    Man I was calm in my mind but I knew at any moment I would explode. I now feel extremely unsafe making games in dreams now. I honestly feel like selling my ps4 and forgetting games as a hole. My data randomly corrupted just now and I lost half a year of progress. I mean hard core progress. HOURS per DAY type of progress. Luckly I had 1 more day of playstation plus and this allowed me to download my auto back up from today. Had I not had psn I would've lost everything. I now feel dreams is theā€¦

  10. 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€¦

  11. Teleporting child object

    I have an immovable parent sculpt connected via string to a movable child object (puppet in this case). When teleporting the child object I notice the parent sculpt moves. Seems to have nothing to do with the max string length. Is this a bug?

  12. 2 two-way doorways

    Anyone know if it is possible for a scene to have 2 two-way doorways? For example, as in you have a scene that you want to be able to go to/from both the previous and next scenes. Driving me insane.

    I have a named controller sensor. I have two-way door A (named A) powered only by the exit signal to go to the previous scene. I also have a two-way door B (names B) powered only by the exit to go the next scene. In the dream I have this scene as a middle scene with door A to previousā€¦

  13. Animation being deleted

    I made an animation of dolphins jumping in the water. I find that the dolphins complete 3 loops of the jump animation before disappearing, accompanied by the message "object deleted- too far from center of origin". In case it matters, timeline with related keyframes is suspended in the air quite close to the dolphins.
    ā€¢ steps to recreate: load reflection by gawen_3 (https://indreams.me/scene/dQLVwkLnuYk), walk forward until you reach the exit area, and watch dolphins disappear from the nearby water. No other in-game actions are required. Appearance and absence have been observable in play mode, edit mode, and testā€¦

  14. Can't load my creations but my friend who is a collaborator on them can load them.

    I have been working on a few private creations with 1 friend set as a collaborator. I had worked on them several times, but since my last save on the creations they no longer will load, saying "Preload Failed". However, my friend can load them fine. I had them re-save it to see if the new save would allow me to reaccess them, but it still will not load says the same as before. I really don't want to lose these creations. What can be done to be able to load into my creations again?

    Hi,

    Glad to hear that deleting the save data managed to resolve this issue for you.

    if you do encounter this issue again then do let us know as this is something we’ll keep an eye on.

    Thanks,

  15. Microchip incorrect minimum width

    When I click on the edge of the window to adjust its size, the width and/or height snapped to some random size.

    I've seen the issue where something contained in the chip was once in a timeline and made really long. This was not the case here. And the chip itself was not long in a chip. So no clue what caused it in this case.

    The only solution was to make a new chip and move everything across--at which point it worked fine.

    You can see be struggling with this here: https://youtu.be/hV-o0p95650

  16. Notification imps stretch out a few seconds after returning to the list from a creation

    As seen here: https://youtu.be/q4kWGvm-FaU

    Unclear what exactly is required to cause this, but I've seen it a number of times.

  17. Updates to already published Dream not appearing for other players

    Iā€™m trying to update the main menu in Shuffleboard. I made 3 changes and published the updated version. Everything looked good when I viewed the new published version, but only one was able to be seen by my collaborator. I then went and made additional changes and published the updates. None of them were able to be seen by my collaborator, or by the people I saw streaming it today, despite it looking good on my end. For some reason it appears that most if not all updates that I try to publish as public, do not appear to theā€¦

  18. 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€¦

  19. Wireless Receiver Logic Bug (Timing?) since VR Update

    Hello there!

    I've working since a while on this project and at this point everything was fine with the logic. Since the VR Update I've recognized that the receivers inside a turned off logicchip sending values which they definitly shouldn't be able to send, because the power is turned off. Replacing them solved the problem. The problem I guess is at the first frame of the scene and somehow saved until the chip is turned on. Maybe they're totally broken I'm really unsure how to name this state they're in ^^ The project is saved online as private. I've alsoā€¦
