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. Wireless Recievers Transmitter name Reset while playing through my Dream

    While publishing/play testing/updating/publishing this dream: https://indreams.me/dream/mqtLFButWxn
    All the Wireless Receivers on a character that were labeled the same as the transmitters reset their Wireless Receivers Name input.
    I did not change the character asset at all, during this loop.
    I was just in a scene with these characters working fine, and then got to a different scene while playing with the characters, and I noticed that they would talk automatically and it turned out the wireless receiver input was reset, and it happened to every scene in the dream

  2. Doorway wipes do not appear to be working

    Wipe timing is greyed out for every option apart from Bokeh. None of the wipe styles appear to work, my level just cuts.

    Hello LadyLexUK,

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    There have been changes to the Wiper, Doorway and the Checkpoint since Early Access.

    In order to get the wiper timing fade in time slider to become active, you will need to enable the "transition via colour "tweak located just under the wiper style tweaks.

    You will also need to set colour unless your happy with black.

    Hopefully this information helps,

    Thanks for the post,
    Mark M

  3. Plugging numbers into the zone size input of a trigger zone doesn't properly scale it

    When i put the number 14.5 into a cylindrical trigger zone, i expect it to have a diameter of 14.5m, but it instead gives off a diameter of 1.5m, and then it outputs 25.1. I don't know if this is intentional or not, but it's very strange and inconvenient

  4. Dream not showing up despite multiple saves

    Iā€™ve been working on an element for a dream for probably over 10 hours. Iā€™ve already saved multiple times and it has automatically backed up multiple times.

    My power went out while I was in the element modifying it. When I restarted my PS4 the element wasnā€™t showing up. I understand if the most recent save is corrupted or something, but certainly there must be a previous save available from any of the multiple saves Iā€™ve made.

    The element thatā€™s missing is called ā€œDog puppetā€

  5. 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!

  6. 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:

  7. 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.

  8. Puppet interface: double jump output should be boolean

    As far as I can tell it only outputs a 1 pulse, which other gadgets send as a boolean value.

  9. Fog density slider increments at 0.25, and displays at 0.1

    This can look weird when incrementing. pressing "up" will change it like so: 0.00, 0.25, 0.50 0.75, 1.00...

    But it will appear to change like so: 0.0, 0.2, 0.5, 0.7, 1.0

  10. Keyframe change not reverting to default after finished recording.

    I've tested this on default puppet. I'm not sure if this is only with the tweaks im using or if theres a larger keyframe change issue.

    To replicate:
    - Stamp in default puppet.
    - Open tweak menu at labels
    - add a keyframe
    - Record switching on two or more labels.
    - Exit out of recording.

    Everything past the first change will still be applied to the puppet.

    Edit; This looks like a visual bug only - when you enter play mode it reverts.

  11. Counters Autofill at Random.

    https://youtu.be/-TP3wEhVhCc

    Video link above to the issue. I am creating a card game. The game generates the deck and once done turns on the Hand generation logic to put the cards from the deck into your hand. This is controlled by a timer pulsing the + of the counter. As the cards get dealt the Hand Size variable rises and allows another card to be dealt to hand. The counter keeps track of this process and tells the logic when it's done.

    But, at random, sometimes turn 5 sometimes 27, the Counter will break and, it seems, ignore the factā€¦

  12. Camera Pointer, missing option?

    Am I crazy, or did we used to be able to adjust the Camera Pointer gadget by pressing L1 + X and aiming it like a normal camera?

    It's been a while since I used this gadget, so I'm not 100% sure, but I feel like in Early Acces it was easy and intuitive. Just like the Camera Gadget.

    I definitely don't remember having to manually rotate the gadget, pointing the arrow, and going into Play Mode to see if the angle is okay.

    Can't find any other topics on Camera Pointers, but I think this might be a bug.

  13. Ran into perpetual bokeh loop in homespace (interfered with editing / gameplay)

    So I love the transparent cube, and was decorating my homespace with it. However, I even put my homespace INSIDE of a transparent cube (which broke physics and made Connie catch on fire with R2 lol) but thats not the main issue..

    I ended up putting a character way out in space, on top of one of the cubes, with the hope of spawning out there. However, once I realized the issue with the cube, I started deleting them so I can organize it differently...

    This led to a perpetual loop of bokeh particles every second, both in editor andā€¦

  14. Second tutorial not available after completing first

    I completed part 1/4 of the first tutorial using DS4. I accidentally restarted part 1/4 rather than starting part 2/4 so I early exited part 1/4. I then completed the remaining parts 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4. But in order to automatically be presented with the option of starting the second tutorial I actually had to recomplete that redo of part 1/4 from which I had earlier exited. Once redone I was presented the option of starting the second tutorial.

    Hello POWDER-001,

    Thanks for your post.

    So setting grab points is only present when creating elements. This option wont appear in the palette if your in a scene.

    If your still not seeing the grab point option in when ctreating an element, you need to save the element first before you can set the elements grab point.

    Let us know if this information helps.

    Cheers,
    Mark M

  18. "pulse on OFF" triggers when respawning

    In a puppet's logic - a puppet with 'die > respawn' wired up:


    • Connect a counter (count of 1) to a signal manipulator.

    • Set the signal manipulator to 'pulse on OFF'.

    • Wire the signal manipulator to a sound effect set to play once.

    Then, run off an edge to die and respawn. The sound plays.

  20. Imp Quests and trophies donā€™t unlock for player 2 (Artā€™s Dream)

    My husband and I played Artā€™s Dream together, we were in his profile but I was also logged in and we were online. A bunch of trophies and imp quests were completed for him. When I logged in later by myself those had not unlocked for me, although my progress in Artā€™s Dream was saved and I did get the prize bubbles weā€™d collected together.
