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. Curve tool

    When you use the curve tool, in stamp mode, it often leaves a donut ring, between the centre two moving points (the ones you grab, to bend it). Even when moving the two points far away from each other, the donut bulge is still slightly there. I canā€™t get a smooth spike/curve at all.

  2. Wire nodes become invisible and prevent michrochip window to be shortened

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyOzahUOdUI


    • Moving a gadget, that is wired into something else and have wire nodes placed, into a second microchip, doesn't seem to move the nodes with it but rather makes them invisible?

    • After that you can not shorten the microchip window to a specific point.

    • moving the gadgets and then trying to shorten the window makes it jump

    • Only fix is to bring back the gadget into the microchip where the wire nodes were set and delete the nodes.

  4. keep changes doesn't work on puppets

    when trying to animate with a puppet the keep changes option does not keep it in place it just moves back to where ever it was originally. I tried it on an object and it worked and have tried it on two different puppets and it didn't.

  5. Dream go to optional scene once you exit last scene.

    When you make a dream with optional scenes then the Dream will force you to play through any unplayed scene once you leave through the last exit even if the optional scene isn't connected to the last scene.
    That's not a big problem in a small dream like Discovering: Ancient Times however, in a big 18 scene dream like my recently published Connies Journey this will send you several steps back, forcing you to play through the story again.
    I have decided to leave Connies Journey without a final exit, telling people to use the options button to leave.

  6. Preload failed (problem downloading this creation)

    This is happening on many of my creations, some of which Iā€™ve been working and collaborating on for months. I canā€™t play, edit or remix any of the creations that have this issue. I previously reported that I am also having random pics from other creations of mine and from random community members. Iā€™ve never made a Mario game, but that is what shows on the cover of one creation. I recognized the gem dragon cover in place or another, and on and on. Sometimes the correct cover image is in place, but often it is a blank sky, orā€¦

  7. Comments problem after the 2.07 update

    It only got worse now after the 2.07 update!

    As a temporary solution to the famous reply problems,before, I(and many others) wrote the name of the user with @ for him to be notified to be mentioned on a comment ect...Now(2.07) that some restrictions have been applied to the comments,and for example some user names have repeated characters ect...You cant even do the ultra legit @ trick to the replies that Mm itshelf has implemented to the game!

    Photo example:

    I cant even write the name of the user because he is called applestrudel1 and the system recognises this wordingā€¦

    Hi there, Galactic_Imp86!

    Thank you for getting in touch. I was wondering if you could possibly provide us with some additional information about your issue; the message you tried to post, did it only include that @’d user or was is the text included in your second image?

    As correctly mentioned by other users below, 3 or more repeated characters, or words/phrases that contain profanities will issue you this warning message.

    Many thanks,
    Monica C.

  8. Deleting a text displayer and hitting undo resets the display order

    I am using text displayers that rely on the order they were stamped in the scene to determine which one is on top. If I delete one of the earlier ones and then undo the delete, that text will now be on top. I would expect undo to completely reset it to its original state before deletion, including what order to display it in.

  9. Chose the wrong imp, restarted, but old one only shows. Turned subtitles off, but keep displaying. Not a good start.

    Started game and chose yellow imp, didn't like so quit the game, restarted during the door part right before the lightbulb, Started new game, chose green, but it kept changing back to yellow. Also turning off subtitles does not work. I turned them off in Options, but I still get subtitles all the time, which distracts from even starting. This is less than 5 minutes into the program and nothing is working.

  13. timeline playback speed slows down in complicated scene

    When the gameplay meter starts to reach a certain point, Timelines will no longer play at the right speed. All audio plays at the correct speed, but the pointer for the timeline is slow. So, when I try to splice or combine sound effects and music, it doesn't play in the scene properly. The music would already be done. I've attached a video showing a second counter and how the seconds change when the scene becomes too large. Here's the Youtube link if the file didn't work.

  15. Logic gets deleted when snapped to a sculpt far away.

    When moving a microchip with logic in (any logic it doesn't matter) if you snap onto an object that is far away by holding L1, you will get a prompt at the bottom of the screen saying 'Object deleted - centre was too far from origin'.
    This, as the prompt states, will delete the microchip. However when you undo, the chip will return but with none of the logic within the chip.

  16. Publishing element failed (severe bug)

    In my level "puzzle ship" there are assets not used but must be released. These assets cannot be released because they include "curved block" (they dont). I have tried traditional debugging and cannot fix this issue.

  17. Controller sensor player number does not set correctly with wires


    1. Placed a controller sensor on an object with buttons activating movers, etc.

    2. Set the possession mode to remote control and player number to Player 2 only.

    3. Set up a counter that, when full outputs a signal to activate Player 1 input and deactivate Player 2 input (using NOT gate).

    4. Observe that when counter is changed, Player 1 and Player 2 light up in the correct circumstances.

    Bug: Even when Player 1 is lit up and Player 2 is not, Player 2 still controls the sensor. The default player number setting is used despite the wired inputs and the appearance ofā€¦

  18. Notification feed does not retain position

    Update 2.11 has not fixed the existing bug, there is no acknowledgment on my previous bug reports so I am raising it for the 4th time.

    Notifications do not retain position after 100 items.
