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. Ancient Temple quest

    I've done part 3 of the quest where it needs to be put into a linked dream space about 3-5 times now and it just won't continue on. Also now I have 3-5 separate linked dreams of my ancient Temple uploaded now because of it. šŸ¤”

  3. 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.

  4. No sound comes out of recorded wave

    When I use any sound recording device such as the PlayStation camera and also the original PS4 ear piece to record sound. It has the wave file of the audio I just recorded in the timeline but when I press play no sound comes out. This is just confusing because it's obviously picked up the sound from the mic to create the wave file. This is a big problem for me because I can't continue with my animation project. (I'm trying to make the character talk).

    Please help!

  5. How do I unlock the Ancient Temple Staircase

    I really like the premade Mm assets, they makes it really fast to make a good looking scene.

    I have unlocked everything in the Ancient Temple prizes except one thing, the Ancient Temple Staircase. How do I unlock this.

    I have completed the Ancient Temple Imp Quest and found every prize bubble in the Mm made level.

    Hello European_Gamer,

    I have moved this issue to bugs.

    As Catherine has stated this prize is awarded to the player in the second home space quest.
    Once collected it should be unlocked everywhere for player use.

    Would be be able to let us know if you had started dreams on one PS4 and then moved to another one before or after starting the homespace imp quest.

    Also do you remember if you were offline or if your went offline during the homespace editor imp quest.

    Could you let us know if you were on the Early Access or are you a new to dreams?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Mark M

  6. Cant collaborate on scenes with a friend.

    So I have no idea if this is a bug or me just being dumb but it seems like a bug so imma put it here. Basically a friend and I are collaborating on a project, I'm trying to get him into dreams. I made a big open area with buildings and he made about 8 interiors to fill the space. So we go to publish it and it says there are private assets. Ok whatever that's it's own bug, since all the levels say already fully published and wont let us publish them further. But back on track. Iā€¦

  8. Text Displayer gadget sometimes displays sequences of numbers as '*******'.

    I entered (well, copied and pasted) a large body of text I had pre-written in notepad via the tool on indreams.me and every-time I tried to enter it Dreams would always convert the number sequence to stars '*****'.

    It's also quite laggy even with a sub 100 ping time on the ping test, with the cursor on the PS4 moving around inside the text entry box in a seemingly random, haphazard way.

    Steps to attempt to repro:


    1. Place a TD gadget onto a Microchip.

    2. Open TD Gadget.

    3. Copy and paste a large body of text from notepad into indreams.me usingā€¦

  10. Painting grouped with Sculpt wonā€™t move

    If I select a Painting and a Moveable Sculpt and Group them, even with the Group itself set to Moveable, wonā€™t allow the Painting to move.
    If I grab the Painting, hover over the sculpt and press L1+X to scope in that creates a group which does allow the Painting to move with the Sculpture.

  11. Imp moving on its own a little

    Every once in a while my imp slowly moves on its own in one direction. Recentering the imp seems to fix it so it isnā€™t much of an issue, but it can be annoying when sculpting more precise builds. No idea why this happens.

  12. "Out of Memory" error message on saved scenes

    I've got scenes that I've saved properly, but am unable to play since the update on April 1st 2020. I get an error message "Out of memory". I can't open them or edit them. They were both near max thermo when I saved them, but did not previously have any issues Playing them or working on them. User ID Gen-X_Racer, scenes RPM, and Leicester Square Station.

  13. Mover bug with values and blend mode

    Two bugs here:


    1. Create a (normal) mover

    2. Create a value slider

    3. Set value slider to 2

    4. Wire the output of the slider in the input of the moverā€˜s speed.

    5. Normally the wire setting is overwrite.
      But here it is multiply (the one with X)
      Bug 1!

    6. Change blend mode to overwrite

    7. The value is divided by 10
      Bug 2!

    Best regards
    Sebastian

  14. Wiper's Wibble mode doesn't stay work with "transition via colour" off and wipe amount at < 100%

    This kind of technique would be great for underwater effects. But it seems to just not work always.

    If colour is on and amount is 100%, it works.
    If colour is off and amount is < 100%, it works.

    If colour is on and amount is < 100% (for a nice underwater look), it doesn't work.
    If colour is on and amount is 100%, it won't work in-place as a constant effect.

    Unsure if this is how it was designed or if it's a bug.

    If "transition via colour" is on, wipe amount can be less than 100% and itā€¦

  15. Saving private online takes 1min to appear for every scene

    My dream Mimeo Prophecy contains 24+ scenes. For each scene to save private online I had to wait at least 1 minute before I could save the scene private online. Every time.

    That's 24min+ of waiting. This wasn't the case last year but I noticed this behaviour in January for the first time. My scenes didn't get bigger.

  16. Can't publish a dream if I don't save every scene private online first

    I have 24+ scenes in my Dream which I updated yesterday.

    When I want to publish my dream and the scenes are only saved on my PS4 it takes forever to publish the dream and I had to abort the publish process. I had this problem when I first published my dream as well. At that time I waited several hours before aborting the publish process.

    Some scenes were actually being uploaded but not all. When I hit publish again it got published instantly. I think there is a problem with publishing big dreams with many scenes at once.

  17. "My collection" gets reshuffled when entering a scene and exiting it

    Yesterday I went through every scene to save them private online which was a real struggle with 24+ scenes when always after exiting a scene "My collection" got randomly reshuffled and I had to exit it again and re-enter to have the most recent saved scenes in order again.

  18. Wrong tutorial instructions in Start dreaming Part 1 of 4

    If you change your control to the left/right sticks instead of the motion movement with your controller the tutorial in German (don't know how it is in English) will say that you need to reach the last island with your imp moving up and down with L1 and the left stick up and down but it's the right stick.

    The controls are different so there should be a different tutorial for each control.

  19. Instrument inputs

    2 things.

    triggering a drum kit instrument via logic, the expected button input thru a music combiner has changed, it used to be 0 to 7, now it is -0.5 to 6.5 so hits are at .5 not the whole number.

    The course pitch tweak now expects input of -0.945 to 0.945 instead of -1 to 1.

    Are these deliberate changes?
    Also , why does a drum kit need to be set to sound fx type for the kit to respond to button / logic.

  20. Can't delete element unless I delete the scene it came from?

    First, absolutely love this game. Got it a few weeks back. I've been making everything myself. So, I don't think my issue has something to do with private assets. Also, haven't used the prizes or anything else.

    I created a scene. So far only local saves, no online or release. I grouped certain assets from the scene and saved them separately as elements, so I can use them for a level later. Since then, I've revisited my elements, made changes, and now I think the scene is ready. One of my elements I decided to scrap. So I went toā€¦
