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. Feedback.indreams.me mobile website bug

    The vote box covers the title text of big submissions making them hard to read. Also, I canā€™t see the name of the person who uploaded the bug or when it was uploaded, which is pretty crucial information.

  2. "Number/Range" name and tooltip doesn't make much sense

    I've never understood the naming of this setting of the number displayer.

    According to the tooltip: If inputting a number value from another gadget, using this slider will give you a range.

    What is the definition of "range" here? This gadget never displays a range of numbers at once, or a "from - to" type display.

    It may mean if the setting is already set and then you wire something in it will default to the modulate blend mode. Though the term "range" does equate to "multiply" in my mind.

    Also, if they user plus the wire in while it'sā€¦

  3. The imp becomes dark in thermo's "more info" view unless hovering over a UI button

    I would expect it to be the normal brightness, as in most menus.

  4. Border-only with Painterly texture paints the entire box area

    I would expect it to only add flecks to the border area.

  5. Scoring tutorial thinks the name of the first gadget has been set when it hasn't in the tutorial

    In part 2 it explicitly said we wouldn't change the name. So there's actually only 1 named score gadget in the scene.

    In part 5 when we add a score modifier and first tweak it, the name is set to Score, but this it normally says "Score to modify..." as the value is blank.

    In part 11 it talks about cycling through the 2 names of the score gadgets. But there is only 1 named score, so it doesn't work the way shown in the video.

  6. Wiring from a prize bubble makes the wire look weird

    Seems like the wire stops halfway along, or perhaps it thinks the prize bubble is larger than it is. In fact, the prize bubble seems a lot smaller when first stamped than it was before so perhaps that's linked.

    Even seen in the the video of the scoring tutorial (part 7).

  7. Kumi's head is stilted to the side while idle

    Could be the update's joint rotation bug?

    Hello TAPgiles,

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    This appears to be a style choice rather than a joint bug.

    There is an idle pose keyframe which is active which is tilting her head. This enabled when she is possessed aswell. This is located on animation circuit on Kumi’s logic microchip, the key frame is named Idle pose.

    Hopefully this information helps.

  8. Chick's idle pose: head is tilted to the side

    From the "welcome home" kit and game. Regardless of the motion controls. Possible joint rotation issue. Looks ahead find when walking or running.

  9. Imp Possession Sound Automatically Off With Force Possession?

    Not sure if itā€™s a bug or just change.

    I was following the instructions from the QA stream where at the end itā€™s shown how to use a timer, key frame, and force possession to hide the imp possession sound.

    I tried this and it worked, but then I worked backwards by deleting the timer, then keyframe, checking each time to see what the difference was in game mode. And it ended up being that even with neither the timer or keyframe, just having force possession on, I didnā€™t hear the imp sound. (I was rewinding each time.)

    Could itā€¦

    Hello DarkFishDays

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    To clear up any confusion, we did make change here.

    If you load a scene where a controller sensor with force possession is on, users should not hear the possession sound effect.

    If however you turn on the force possession tweak once in a scene you should be able to hear the possession sound effect.

    Hopefully this information helps.

    Thanks for the post.

  10. DreamSurfing UI deadzone is very low

    I have a slightly broken DS4 with a stick that sometimes tilts itself forward a little bit. In most gameplay cases this is fine, but the smallest movement of the stick in the DreamSurfing menu makes things start scrolling up. It makes things very difficult to use, especially since most of the menu involves horizontal scrolling. It'd be nice if the deadzone was raised to avoid this problem.

    I guess it's my own fault for having a broken controller, but I guess this might be annoying too for people scrolling with the stick that accidentally push the stick a littleā€¦

  11. Welcome Home Door Asset Bug

    While messing about in my HomeSpace I was building a little home for Connie when I noticed that the door from the Welcome Home assets has a small bug that allows Connie to walk in easily one way but gets stuck going through the other way.... Nothing major but slightly annoying. Video showing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB-biCwAdJs

  12. Can't progress past tutorial

    On the 6th clone tutorial I am asked to make 2 copies and rotate the last so I can reach the prize. I do so but cannot collect the prize. I can reach it easily but it stays white and I cannot collect it. Very very frustrating as I can't progress to the create mode. Please make all prizes collectable if you can reach them, even if the block is not in exactly the right place.
    Update - I've found out what the problem was. Not all 3 blocks were aligned correctly. This needs addressing as it almost made meā€¦

    Hello Frogmeister,

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    It sounds like your solved the problem with the clone homespace imp quest.

    Currently the prize will remain white until all the user has cloned the pink block twice and then place each of these clone inside the dotted lines. Once the bolcks are arranged correctly the prize box should become coloured.

    Please get in touch if your still having problems.

    Thanks for the post.

  13. Trying to get past the tutorial

    When trying to complete the tutorial section I am asked to copy a block 3 times in order to reach the prize. I do so but I cannot get the third block to line up correctly. I have been trying for ages. The block beeps and I leave it in that position and can easily reach the prize, but it the prize stays white and I cannot collect it. I am becoming extremely frustrated at this! Make the prizes collectable if you can reach them, even if the blocks aren't in exactly the correct place.

  15. Image zoomed in on old TV

    Hi,

    I have an old Panasonic Viera 720p TV (TH-42PV70F) from 2007 and the image is zoomed in all the time.
    This cuts off text and UI in a lot of creations (see attachment).

    Unfortunatly there is no option on my tv to solve this issue and I had it before with other games.
    Most of the time it's not a big deal but it's annoying if a part of the UI gets cut off.

    It seems that Dreams doesn't use the "Display Area Settings" in the "Sound And Screen" section of the PS4 settings.
    Would it be possible toā€¦

    Hello Emperor_Mordred,

    I am sorry to hear that your having problems.

    In Dreams we do try to make sure that any UI we create here does sit well within the screen edges.

    Unfortunately in regards to the creations made by other users, its a bit more difficult to make sure that UI elements do fit on screen.

    Its certainly worth raising in the feedback channel.

    Thank you for raising this post.

  16. Input and output nodes display Randomizerā€™s tooltip

    Create a microchip and stamp a Node on each side. Ensure they are set as input and output nodes, then scope out of the microchip. Point the imp at the port on either side of the collapsed microchip. The tooltip will say the same tooltip text that ordinarily displays on a Randomizer chipā€™s input port: ā€œWire up the signal you want to send to a random output port.ā€

    Some of the dialogue cuts a little short so you don't hear the last word. This happened on numerous occasions throughout.

  18. Normal version and Japasese version trophies bugged.

    Hello, there is a glitch that if you have both copies (nomal and japanese copies of the game) you can't platinum twice the game. There are these 2 trophies that won't pop up twice, they are: Creative Thinker - Acient Temple Theme and Creative Thinker - Welcome Home Theme. As a Trophy hunter I would love to earn the platinum in both games versions, so please fix that, Thanks :)

  20. collision stops working if you add too many objects or groups

    after adding a hat to my characters the traditional way by grouping it I found the characters in my sumo wrestling game their heads no longer had collision working properly and the characters heads would just clip through each other.

    I tried messing with all the settings and the only thing that work was deleting the hat. so then I tried putting a hat on their head using a text displayer and grouping a microchip to their head

    after I did that once again the collision stopped working on their heads
