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. Profanity filter is hitting a false positive when filtering "bico" out of "rhombicosidodecahedron"

    As description states, the profanity filter is hitting a false positive when filtering "bico" out of "rhombicosidodecahedron", turning it into "rhom****sidodecahedron". Granted, there probably aren't many people making rhombicosidodecahedra, but I've almost completed my set of Archimedean solids, and not being able to name it what it is has really bummed me out. :)

    Hi Kong_Angantyr,

    TAPgiles pretty much nailed it on the head with the reasoning as to why we cant do much about it at this point. I’m really sorry that this issue has meant that you cant name your creation how you’d like it to be.

    Perhaps using numbers in place of some letters will do for the time being? :)

    Cheers,

  2. Sound effect wont play

    I add sound effects to a timeline and they will not play. I have a door and I have keyframes set up in a timeline to animate it opening and then record possession for my puppet to walk through. I have a small screen shake and rumble. I add sound effects to the same timeline to make some sort of sound as it's opening and it won't play. Sometimes it will play jus part of it jus a second or two then go off. I am probably doing something wrong but I've tried everything. I don't know if it's aā€¦

  3. Stuck on restricted mode!

    I've changed the parental settings on the ps4 to allow my kids to on online mode because I read that offline mode was imposed due to parental settings. However, when they logged back onto dreams it now says 'restricted mode', how do I get rid of this? I've already temporarily disabled default parental settings but nothing's working.

  4. Respawning triggers seemingly random animation-timelines to play.

    When my character dies and respawns, certain animation-timelines within the logic will automatically play, causing my character to move like crazy as it does several animations at the same time.

    I have removed all wires from these timelines and turned their power off. They will still play on respawn.

    I can create a new timeline and copy-paste the keyframes into the new timeline, and this seemed to solve the issue. However, the glitch just returns after a while. I have read other people having the same issue. One workaround is to create your own custom respawn-logic using teleporters etc. Butā€¦

  5. 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.

  6. I can't publish my dream. It says it contain private elements.

    I found that this is a residue from the scene I'm remixing and this objects are not even there anymore yet it don't let me publish the dream. I've seen so many posts in the past about this problem. What is going on? Thanks

  7. Large Number Fidelity Issues

    As far as I can tell, a number cannot have more than 7 digits of accuracy. If I want to set a value to 2,374,729.4, for exampleā€”I canā€™t. The decimal place will round to either .00, .25, .5, or .75. If I try to go smaller (and use the hundredths place rather than taking up the millions place) I get the same rounding issues. This can lead to some mathematical issues in logic that might be hard to debug. Some clarification about this or an expansion of available accuracy (significant figures, I guess?) would be great. Iā€™m trying to storeā€¦

  8. Scoreboard malfunction

    Countless times when I have gotten a new high score, and it displays the bottom-right notification, the scoreboard does not update. Closing and re-entering the application does not fix the issue. The only fix is to restart or turn off & on the PS4.

    There are two dreams that are permanently "set" this way for me, and one dream, that was working fine, suddenly had this occur once and never again so far.

    Whereas in another dream, also working fine, suddenly did not save the new score outside of the game (no in-game notification and no updated scoreboard). For thisā€¦

  9. In-scene Text Displayer in Timeline moves when Timeline is placed into a Microchip.


    1. Create a timeline.

    2. Add text displayer to it and stretch its individual timing so it is visible for a period of time.

    3. Modify it so that it displays in-scene, and then place it where you want it to be located in the scene.

    4. Create a microchip.

    5. Move the entire timeline to the microchip.

    The text displayer should/may have moved within the scene to a new location. In my case, I had a text displayer on the ground in my scene, and it moved up and to the right quite a distance, deep within some scenery.

  10. Physics Issues

    I'm making a bowling game (It's playable now under "We Bowling in VR!"). I'm having issues with the physics, though... I have to make the bowling ball weigh far more than it does in reality in order to keep the puppet's superhuman strength from being able to fling the ball 20 feet out. The side effect of making it weigh so much that it does fall to the ground realistically, it makes the puppet struggle to carry it, so the ball bounces around suspended from the imp beam like it was a rubber band. If I put the ball's realā€¦

  11. Objects get blurry / low framerate when using head / camera tracker gadget.

    The new camera tracker gadget comes in handy, although it has major flaws. Keyframed objects will appear in a significantly lower framerate when in the camera tracker than normal, especially when moving the camera around. To add to this the objects will blur out when moving the camera at a relatively fast pace, this becomes extremely apparant with translucent textboxes. I'm on a standard PS4.

    I don't know if this is already catalogued but I haven't heard anybody mention this problem.

  12. 'Fell Out of Scene' trigger inconsistency

    I've discovered a rather annoying inconsistency between the blank puppet variants involving slopes, specifically ones that are too steep for a given puppet to walk up.

    I discovered this when trying to add a sliding mechanic to a puppet I was working on, when I discovered that after sliding for a certain length of time, the puppet would always die and respawn, the only workaround being to adjust the fall height in Global Settings (and even then, that only goes up to 100.0m, so long slides are out of the question). I noticed that that this issue doesn't seem toā€¦

  13. Can't live clone a painting

    When you create a live clone of a painting, edits made to one don't replicate in the other. Is this a bug or are you just unable to live clone paintings?

    Edit: Adding new brush strokes to a live clone is replicated, but deleting strokes is not. Changing settings in the tweak menu of a painting is also not replicated

  14. Do Not Receive Indreams Forum Notifications

    I never receive notifications from feedback.indreams.me. And I cannot change my email address on the site; there is no "edit" button for the email field in my settings page.

    This is quite problematic for me. I spend a lot of time on this forum trying to help people, leaving responses on posts. But if they reply to those comments I either never find out, or I happen to stumble across their post after they've left the new comment. If I received notifications it would mean I don't miss these responses and so can answer further questions they may have andā€¦

    An emitted object that has a timeline animation does a strange flash of the object in the wrong place for the first frame.

  17. Ps4 (in-game)keyboard arrows don't work anymore

    These arrows are used to work and they were a pretty good use in order to change cursor's position easily up and down!

    Right now,if you want to correct or chance something in a big text of yours(its the same in every appearance of the Ps4 keyboard) you have to press L1 or R1 forever in order to locate it.

  19. Non-puppet checkpoint logic

    I had created some logic during the early access which allowed the player to spawn at a checkpoint upon reaching it. This checkpoint was meant for a non-puppet remote controllable character that was detected by the checkpoint based on the tag which I had attached on the character.

    This checkpoint was working fine during early access, but as soon as the game was officially released the checkpoint stopped working.

  20. Object that is rotated with a keyframe doesn't move properly when the group it is in moves

    If you record the rotation of an object in a group with a keyframe (using L2 to rotate), the object will twitch to a slightly different position if the keyframe is active when the whole group is moved (presumably because the position isn't calculated properly) For example in my case this happens when I try to animate a steering wheel without an unnecessary connector.

    The video below should explain this better. The number on the screen shows the Y-axis movement of the "steering wheel" relative to the rest of the car. Notice how the number only changes when the steeringā€¦
