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. Occasionally random cover images appear when I select a Dream

    Sometimes when I dreamsurfing and choose a Dream to play a completely random and different cover image from another Dream suddenly takes the normal's place...As you can see in the video!

    It can happen the other way around too sometimes! Looking at a random thumbnail(correct title though) but when I choose the dream the right cover image appears as the zooming to the cover page happens!

    This appeared after 2.16 (vr) update.

  3. Text Displayers Altered by Collaborators Become Unreliable

    When a collaborator alters a previously existing text displayer and then saves a creation, the original creator opens up the creation, they will often see the old text still.

    New viewers seem to have a semi-random chance as to which version will appear, but with the old text slightly more likely.

    This has been a constant struggle for those of us collaborating on projects.

    We submit into evidence:

    I asked Sebastian to save a basic creation with the text "Sebastian wrote this". He then added me as a collaborator, and I altered the text to say "Andy wrote this". Whenā€¦

    Hi LadyLexUK,

    Are you still experiencing this issue? What is you’re connection set up like? Are you using wifi or plugged in via ethernet? Whats you’re download/upload speed like?

  5. Every variable name set to default!

    My game (which I've spent weeks on) has had every single variable reset to the default name of "Variable". Now none of my logic works. This is a huge bug in my eyes, and I'll have to reload a previous version to jot down their individual names again. Very poor.

  6. Flipping a puppet reverses jump outputs

    Flipping a puppet using L3 will make the puppet interfaceā€™s jump outputs work in reverse (jump descent, jump peak, jump ascent).

  7. Physical Painting limit hit for 1 small painting

    Yesterday, I created a grass tile which uses logic to enable physical paintings when the puppet stands over 1 of multiple trigger zones. Worked like a dream (no pun intended) yesterday. Today, since the latest update, the same tile permanently hits a physical painting limit. So, I deleted all but one of the tufts of grass, removed duplicates, enabled physics for that 1 blade of grass and the limit is hit again!!! I've attached screenshots to show the problem (they are not merged paintings).

  8. Variable modifiers 'get' outputting *half* of the variable value

    Hey all :)
    I've come across an issue that has affected all of the variable modifiers set to get a specific variable that has made them all output half of the variable value. There's no blend modes on either. It's similar to the issue described here:
    https://feedback.indreams.me/forums/917431-dreams-bugs/suggestions/40270141-variable-modifiers-strange-behavior
    and it's in the same scene where i reported my previous variable modifier issue here:
    https://feedback.indreams.me/forums/917431-dreams-bugs/suggestions/40374532-specific-variable-modifiers-are-effecting-timing

    It happened just randomly i think this morning when i re-opened the scene i've been working on. I think the last thing i did to the scene was change the variables 'initial value' then save and quit.

  9. Objects in head/camera tracker start to shake when far from scene centre

    Turn on the look cursor or place something in the head/camera tracker's group, and move far from the scene centre. Even when standing still, the objects wiggle around.

  10. Dream map bug where when you enter its edit mode all links from scene to scene are deleted until you check the update screen

    this seems to happen to old dream maps but not when i create a new one.

    no need to show a video or anything because its exactly what i said

    i enter a dream map edit mode all 20+ links are deleted not even showing until i goto the update screen then it fixes it.

    if i uses the scenes in a new dream map that might fix this bug but then thats yet another thing i cant delete to add to my pile of 100+ scenes that i also cant delete.

  11. Private Creations Causing Release complications EXPLAINED

    I posted a bit about this in feedback as well, but it seems the molecules are more focused on bugs at the moment. As well as seeing a lot of you have encountered this issue here in bugs and are unaware whats causing it. So I'll try my best to explain the issue here.

    The following video shows two examples of private creations prevented from release. the first example(clarified below the video) is a scene I was unable to release at all, that thankfully I was able to fix, and release as remixable. and the second is a scene Iā€¦

  12. Keep changes on Keyframe causes easing

    Turning on keep changes causes a single keyframe to have an ease in/out response.

    Reproduce:
    Grab a slider, signal manipulator, timer, and keyframe.
    Keyframe the slider to 1.
    Plug the timer output into the keyframe power.
    Plug the slider into the signal manipulator.
    Switch the manipulator to remapper mode so you can see the graph.
    Play time.

    With keep changes off, you'll see the expected linear transition.
    With keep changes on, you see a slight ease in, and a more dramatic ease out. The value also nearly reaches 1 only half way through the timer output.

  13. Teleport wonā€™t work on squashy objects

    If you try to use teleport on an object with even 1% squashyness applied, the object Keeps flickering between its original position and the teleport tag.

    When you de-activate the teleporter, the squashy object returns to its original position

    I tried a workaround by using a key frame to turn off the squashyness, then teleporting the object.

    This made the teleport work, however, when you try and reapply the squashyness, the object returns to its original position, cancelling the teleport.

  14. Canā€™t deselect hovered note

    Create a music gadget and go into the piano roll.

    Draw some notes with the pencil tool, then unequip the pencil.

    Select some notes with X

    Hover the imp over one of the selected notes and press circle.

    The expected result is that the notes would deselect, same as with regular object or gadget selections. However it doesnā€™t work if the imp is hovering over a note, and you have to move the imp to empty space and press circle again to actually deselect.

  15. Multi-clone doesnā€™t space evenly when grabbing a gadget off-center

    Stamp a gadget on a microchip

    Clone it, but point the imp tip at the very top edge of the gadget before grabbing.

    Press dpad right a few times to multiclone.

    Observe that the second through nth clones are closer together than the first and second clones are.

    This issue does not occur when grabbing the gadget by its very center.

  16. Profile text different between InDreams.me and Dreams PS4

    I've edited my profile text on Indreams.me. On the website, it shows the new text I edited, but on Dreams PS4, it doesn't show this text, it only shows the old text and the profile on Dreams PS4 doesn't update to match my profile edit on Indreams.me? What's going on? I did like empty cache and hard reload, etc. and I tried two browsers MacOS Chrome and Safari so its definitely the new text on inDreams.me. It looks like the Profile screen in Dreams isn't detecting the update?

  17. And gate not sending a signal

    I don't know if this issue can be recreated. It seems so random. A few of my AND Gates won't work. Other AND Gates on the same microchip work. I've had this issue before and I've tried re-doing the AND Gates, wires and the Selectors that they are attached to. It seemed to fix itself when I was trying to figure it out, but this time, the problem remains.

    I posted a video link
    Side note: I apologize for the messy wires, but that is another issue I've had with this project. A few times, when I add something toā€¦

    Hi Sion,

    Great to hear that you and TAPgiles managed to work it out so that it helped solve your issue!

    I’ve still reported this to the team so they are aware of the sync issues with frames.

    Thanks,

  18. Text box disappear when "in scene"

    Text boxes since the last undated (2.11 i think) now do not display correctly when "in scene" they disappear seemingly at random Angles when the camera is panning around them.

  19. One of my creations causes Dreams to crash

    Since launch of VR one of my painting assets crashes Dreams. This did not happen before the latest update, as you can tell from the 43 thumbs up it has. It crashes Dreams when you click on it in a feed or a collection before the profile page loads. This is upsetting as it is not something I can recreate.

    Just so you do not think there is something in the creation that may cause it. It is a spraypainted flat rectangle. No audio, No logic, No gadgets.My suspicion is that somehow the profile page has become corrupted on yourā€¦

    Hello LadyLexUK

    Thanks for this post.

    I am glad that the level is no longer crashing. This was one of the main fixes we wanted to get out in the 2.17 patch.

    If any of your creations still crash in a similar way please get in contact with us again.

    Many thanks,
    Mark M

  20. 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.
