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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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€¦

    Hello RbdJellyfish

    Sorry for the delay in getting to this post.

    Dreams doesn’t have any in-game settings which would allow you to change the dead zone or disable the scrolling during the DreamsSurfing.

    I will raise a ticked for this behaviour though as it might be somethign we might be able to improve on in the future.

    Thanks for the post.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    I think this may have been answered already, looks like there was a post in feedback and in bugs.

  8. 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.

  9. Arts Dream : Dialogue sometimes cuts short

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

    Hello TAPgiles

    Thanks for the post.

    good spot that the Voice over doesn’t tell you where the seesaw icon is.

    However the video itself does cover the location of the physical properties tab of the sculpt.

    This is the 5th tab in the sculpt tweak menu and uses the icon of a newtons cradle.

    Once selected the see-saw icon should be the very first tweak on this page.

    Hope the information helps.

    Cheers,

  12. Messed up placement in grab tutorial, now cannot advance

    Unfortunately in the grab tutorial right in the beginning of the game, the game told me the block was safe to place down and I cannot move it now that I'm in the strafing tutorial! As you can see in the screen shot, my cone character cant jump high enough to complete the tutorial. Anyone have a fix for this? I cant grab the block or reset its position.

  13. some audio is not playing in my creation, which affects my published dream.

    So I am making an audio only game that requires the player to use sounds to trigger certain events. My problem is that after Dreams launched, a lot of those audio clips became silent even though my game was already published. I have tried putting the audio in a new timeline and i have tried creaming a new project and moving it there, but it has corrupted the audio over any project. I have also tried recording my own sound. That comes out silent as well.

    Hello,

    I have a few things I would like for you to check.

    Have you made sure that other audio gadgets in the scene are not affecting some of the audio channels?

    Could you check that you haven’t turned down music or sound effects settings in your preferences?

    if the sounds are set to use multi language does disabling this option have an affect on the sounds.

    If you could let us know the answers to the above points it would greatly help is in recreating the issue.

    Hope to hear from you soon

  15. Scenes lag for the first 2 seconds

    As of the full release of Dreams, sometimes when I start a scene made by anyone in the Dreamiverse, it drops to a low framerate for the first couple seconds. I donā€™t think anything in particular causes this because Iā€™ve been seeing it everywhere, and Iā€™ve heard others say that they have been seeing the same thing.

  16. Homespace mood contraptions

    I'm unsure on which parts of this are intentional and which are bugs. So I'll just put it all here and let you decide ^^


    • Add a mood gadget. The lighting and such changes.

    • Add another mood gadget. The old gadget turns off (closes and stops affecting things) and the new one opens and affects things. Only the latest one is ever open.

    • Delete the latest one and now none of them are active. But the sky is reset to the default blue with circles, rather than the homespace's usual sky and effects. (I'm guessing this is the actual bug.)ā€¦

    Hello TAPGiles

    Sorry about the delay in getting to this post.

    There certainly is something about this which isn’t intentional. I have raised a ticket for this in our database.

  17. "Scoring" tutorial video starts by talking about Cuthbert and Connie doing things, but that isn't shown in the video or the scene

    Not sure where that animation is meant to be playing out, but I'm guessing it's meant to be playing out somewhere ;P

    Hello TAPgiles

    So step one for each of tutorials may contain the VO for the introductory scene.

    However the actual video in the video player will not contain the matching visuals. if you want to see the matching visual for the VO you would need to go to the tutorials page in game and restart the tutorial from the beginning.

    Apologies if this behaviour has caused any confusion.
    I hope the information helps.
