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. Indreams removes links from posts

    I am constantly being asked to provide proof of my bug reports, but links I post to Dreams and to video evidence on YouTube are getting removed from my posts. If you have a spam filter set up that deletes links from posts then you will have to think this through again, because it is impossible for me to provide you with the evidence you keep asking for if my links are removed.

  3. 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€¦

  4. Controller Speakers

    I managed to get the Rumbler gadget* to activate on certain controllers after a load of trial and error but sound effects emit from all controller speakers no matter what I do.

  5. Keyframing a scoped-in camera with empty keyframes in a timeline misses one

    As seen here: https://youtu.be/-oBCms-BSFE

    Reliably, when I use this method to keyframe a camera around the place, one of the keyframes won't store the position and will stay empty.

  6. Connected objects "ratchet" when recording into one keyframe then another

    As with blended keyframes on a timeline. It's like the child object isn't properly informed it should update its position, going one way. And then going the other way it catches up?

    Also didn't seem to affect playing the animation; just changing the previewed keyframe.

  8. Dialogue Text Displayer cannot be powered off using logic

    Dialogue Text Displayer does not react to being powered off in any way, shape or form. Cannot be done using power signals, keyframes or via any other method. Once it is on your screen, it is essentially permanent until a button is pressed. There is no possible way to remove it. Apparently this was once an "acknowledged" bug but has since been deleted? Has this somehow been considered fixed?

    Hi GothicMiku39

    This has been entered as a bug in the database and the team are looking at this issue.

    In the meantime, have you tried setting the Dialogue Displayer – Prompt to Close to ‘Off’?

    I believe that having this set to OFF will allow the text box to close when powering off the displayer.

    Thanks,

    PeteS

  9. Text sometimes glitches when first rendered

    This bug has been around since beta I believe.

    When a text displayer is first rendered, squares of it show with some squares missing, until it all pops in. Maybe progressive rendering? Maybe fonts are still loading or something?

    Doesn't happen with all text--maybe just large text that's been scaled up?

    Here's a capture of this happening: https://youtu.be/HxzaxOFPnzs

  10. Upload bug with creations saved as a new element

    Hi guys, I just had a bug wich prevent me from saving in private my creation. I use to have a scene in wich I make all of my mechanics and then save them as a new element. But for the first time there's an error when I try to upload it. But there's also something weird, when I want to upload there's the usual message saying that I need to also upload my scene and it won't stop showing me this all the time even if I accept or save it in private before and always end up withā€¦

  11. "creation not yet available" - Cannot remix or publish privately.

    Discovered when I realized my scene was too full and needed to split it in two.

    There was no option to do this, and no option to remix it. No option to publish privately either. Saving a version of this scene will not let me use more than one version together within a single dream, so that too doesn't help.

    In Genealogy I see an object with a "!" error icon labeled "Creation not yet available" - there is no other info available for it.

    This object does not show up in the "update mode" object list when I'm editingā€¦

  12. Camera moves drastically

    Not the gadget of camera;the normal camera in edit mode,where there is the imp. Sometimes it moves forward abruptly for a few seconds, this is a small annoyance but sometimes it happens continuously and it is quite annoying to have to go back and that your camera and imp go forward all the time.

  13. Gadgets stop working in complex scene

    Hello! I have a Dream scene with some complex enemy AI and at about 80% gameplay thermometer. Certain gadgets (mostly timers) have stopped working properly. e.g. a timer that is wired to the "pulse when finished" output is outputting a constant signal. Another timer set to speed, stops increasing despite a constant signal to it's input. This has caused some of my game logic to break. Not sure if it's related to the thermometers, but I am under 100%.

  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. 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€¦

  16. 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€¦

  18. When looking for objects to stamp into creations, many objects are unavailable to use.

    Lots of stuff is unavailable for me to use, and the connection keeps timing out

  19. deleting levels

    when deleting old levels that i created out of curiosity when first playing dreams i discovered a huge bug. some how these creations are linked to my newer creation. i'm not sure why, but its very annoying cause i'm running out of space in dreams. i tried going into one of these levels and deleting everything. it seemed like a decent work around. until i realized people are getting credit for objects that are not in my level anymore. i cant delete about 80 to 90 percent of my creations because there all linked to stuff i actually want toā€¦

  20. Even with 0 rpm on all axis and 0% power, advanced rotator dampening interact with physics of moveable objects (should'nt !)

    The fact that an object has an advanced rotator on it with 100% dampening (and 0% rotation in X, Y, Z, even with 0% rotating power) makes it act weirdly physically.
    The exact same object with 0% dampening power has NO problems at all.

    I put up a scene replicating the bug : https://indreams.me/scene/diqqTqpeebo
    There is a strange interaction between the moving/moveable object, its logic and the other rotating object it's put on. If you go and play the scene above (my set up), it will be quite obvious.

    Hi popeye98800,

    Thank you for reporting the issue, could you please provide us with a video of this issue occurring?

    If possible may we please have a remixable level and made released as public? The link was unable to be accessed.

    Cheers.
