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. Game freezes at "make user profile public conformation screen"

    Someone I know just recently bought the game and their game freezes when they get to the screen asking if they wish to make their user profile public.

  2. Showing wrong thumbnail on creations

    I've been getting this quite a bit lately. I go to my profile and scroll along my creations and instead of showing a thumbnail of MY CREATION it will show a thumbnail of a Dream that I recently played. Not one of my Dreams, just a random Dream I had played earlier from the Dreamiverse.

    I created a puppet and made a timeline with three keyframes.

    In the timeline, keyframes play in order as intended with NO SMOOTHING. It snaps to each keyframe in 3 distinct "frames" in the animation.

    When I start time, the puppet smooths into each keyframe as it plays. There is no three distinct frames and plays as one smooth animation.

    Smoothing is turned OFF for each keyframe.
    Procedural animation is OFF for the puppet.
    Default puppet behavior can be deleted; Has no affect on the issue at hand.
    There is no smoothing or curves between each keyframe.

    Demonstration here: https://twitter.com/MashArcade/status/1235331161062354951?s=20

  5. Puppet disappears with only a pelvis left in its place after publishing dream

    I created an apparition in paint mode that consisted of eyes/mouth/shifting fragments for a body that i grouped to a puppets head - i went into play mode to test it out and it worked fine with the puppet following me on sight like i wired it up to. but upon publishing the dream and re-entering into play mode afterwards the puppet was gone all except for the pelvis as well as my apparition - the puppet reappears at random in random places while my apparition stays put except for a few times where it too spawned around the mapā€¦

    Hi

    We’re still tracking this issue but need your help in solving it. If you get the chance we’d really appreciate a response to our earlier comment!

    Thanks,

  6. "Logged out because an error" (NP-32091-5)

    This would happen ever other time after launch, but this was the worst I've had so far.

    Right when the Mm logo animation is starting, I'd sometimes get a system error saying "[User] will be logged out of the PS4 because an error has occurred (NP-32091-5)"

    In the past, it would give me that error, log me out, and I'd log in again, and I'd be able to launch Dreams again (though there's probably an instance where it gave me the error a second time)

    However, for this case, once I tried starting Dreams again, it gave me another errorā€¦

  7. No text animation after copying text from one gadget to another

    I found out by accident that text can be copied from a text displayer to a dialogue displayer or vice versa (You have to select the empty displayer, open the tweak menu on the displayer that contents the text you want to copy, open the "enter text" field and close it again with R2). I assume that is an intended function.

    I was hoping to copy quite a lot of text files this way to be able to use the options of the dialogue displayer. Unfortunately it seems to interpret the copied text as one letter as it displays theā€¦

  8. Incrementing "name" setting fields does not carry across selected objects

    Stamp 2 trigger zones, set them to detect tags. Stamp 2 tags with different names.

    Select both trigger zones and tweak one. Click X on the name field and enter some text.

    Close the tweak menu, cancel the selection, and tweak them individually. Both gadgets have the name set correctly.

    Now select both and tweak one. Use up/down to "adjust value" to one of the tags' names. Close the tweak menu and cancel the selection. Open each zone's tweak menu individually. Only the one directly tweaked has its name changed, the other remains whatever it was before the tweak wasā€¦

    Hello LadyLexUK

    Thank you for your post, There an issue were tracking for this in out database.

    This issue appears to affects specific puppets, and only when taking photos via the cover page of the creation.

    You should be able to take photos of your character without the waist changing position. If you own the scene you should be able to take photos in edit mode or in play mode without this issue occurring.

    Hopefully this information has helped.

    Mark M

  12. Audio channel gadgetā€™s reverb slider misbehaves

    Create an audio channel gadget such as a General Channel.
    Set its chain reverb amount to 50%.

    Point the imp at the slider and press the Down directional button. Nothing will happen.

    Try to slide it back down to a number in the 1-49% range with the X Button. The slider will not move, but will jump to 0% when dragged far enough.

    I just found a bug - if you start playing a game in the jam, then go to indreams.me and find another game and click ā€œplay nowā€ youā€™ll get sent to that game - when you exit youā€™ll be asked to vote on it whether or not the game was part of the jam... it didnā€™t let me vote as the button just seems to be inactive but it shouldnā€™t ask me either way. Also, if the game is in the jam it might be possible to exploit this to give the creation more votes... I havenā€™t tried that yetā€¦

  14. Imp Quests - Dreamiverse Dash Part 3 locked despite previous part completed.

    Hello, I found a bug that whenever the second part of Dreamiverse Dash is completed (adding the created scene to a dream and publishing it), if the dream is marked as "unlisted" before submitting it, the game will acknowledge that the second part has been completed, but won't unlock the final part, still pointing back to part 2.

    A simple way to bypass this is by simply redoing the quest and making sure the dream is not unlisted before publishing, but there is a possibility that other Imp Quests might have similar issues because of this, with future parts notā€¦

  16. Adding to chest, screws mirrored arms

    Hi Mm,

    When adding a weapon to the back of my chest piece, it screwed up the mirroring of the arms. I tried the trick you guys did in the animation stream but it's not working with the weapon. I also tried adding a simple circle and triangle paint stroke to the chest and that also screwed it up. Was wondering if this is a bug or am I just doing something wrong?

    Thanks!

  17. And today's swear word is: Preprocessor

    So I was trying to make a microchip called an "Accurate Comparison Preprocessor" - it makes the minimum adjustment to a pair of values to place their midpoint at an odd multiple of 0.005.

    But when I tried to set the microchip's title, "preprocessor" got Scunthorped to prepro*****r. Looks like another profanity needs an "only profane if whole word" restriction.

  18. Keyframes for audio instrument effects are not working.

    Very simply put, my key frame transitions are simply not having any effect on the audio effects. You can see this in action here:

  19. Intro sequence unable to break down the wall

    Hi,

    I've bought the game today, and came across the following bug, when the tutorial asks me to break down the wall of doubt the 4th brick bugs out and i am unable to progress, softlocking me.

    I have a link to the issue here: https://youtu.be/hjQD-JK1xqM

    I've tried this 5 times, reinstalled the game and used a different PSN account, and ensured I am up to date. I haven't a clue whats happening but the dreams website shows that I've played 5 creations, and im guessing all of them are the intro.

    Please advise, I am unable to play theā€¦

    Hello EpicGuy012

    Sorry to hear that you having trouble with dreams.

    I have taken a look at the video and there are a few places where the boot flow is misbehaving.

    Would you be able to confirm if your playing dreams as a digital copy or were you running a disc copy?

    Also if you had to updated your firmware when you installed dreams or if you had the latest firmware when you started dreams?

    If it turns out you updated the PS4 system when you were installing dreams it might be related to the firmware installation.

    I would urge you to back up the save data for dreams and send it to us at the following email
    hello@mediamolecule.com

    The alternative idea is to try reinstalling your PS4 firmware. There is a guide here which covers the steps required to reinstall the PS4 firmware in safe mode.
