"As we've stated, we've got two waves happening - one today and then another wave of both EU and US codes to happen Monday. We aren't managing the distribution, so don't have access to the details of who's got in/not got in. We'd obviously love to have EVERYONE in, but this is a beta and we're using it to test things, learn things and evolve Dreams for it's full release (OMG HOW EXCITING!) Please appreciate this, and be lovely and nice as you always are :smiley:" - TomD

So am I interpreting it correctly that people who -will- receive a code on Monday should currently have access to the forum? Meaning if we still have no access to the forum as of today, we're not likely to get a code on Monday either?

I also got featured :)

Made the short animation with the neon city (shown second I think). I'm really bad at posting here, so I doubt anyone know me. Read this thread all the time though! Great stuff shown today on the stream.

Number 1 tip for people who got in today: Do the Tutorials! They're extremely useful and actually a lot of fun to do. It's actually hours of good content that will get you used to interacting with the way Dreams works, even if you only intend to play other people's stuff.

My guess would be to sell MOVEs.
Come on, that's just BS LoudMouse. Mm have been VERY vocal about being able to use the DS4 for everything and even have staff who ONLY use the DS4 to make sure that it works. "Hmm, let's sell more Moves by deliberately pissing off our users. That should work well for our game!"

There is no denying that sculpting and 3D positioning is better with the Moves, it's so much more intuitive and faster. It's a shame that you're not able to give that a go (I had a left over Move from PS3 and picked up another cheap second hand - you don't have to buy new).

Oh, congrats!! I voted for yours in the weekly jam too!

So why would he lie?

My guess would be to sell MOVEs. In an answer to this very question that I sent to Alex via Twitter, he said they haven't used it because the cable gets in the way, as do your hands when using the triggers. I sat there for quite some time, biting my tongue, wondering whether I should post a follow up response but I didn't. What I was just told was not the truth. The very reason the light is on the controller IS so it can be tracked by the camera, and the reason it's positioned the way it is IS so that the cable and your hands don't interfere with it when using the triggers. Many games have been using this feature successfully, so in conclusion, it HAS to be to sell MOVEs.
Lol. The beta and feedback forums is there for a reason. Report this stuff on the forum. I also already reported it day 2 or 3 of the beta. 'Controller tracking with camera even for those that don't have Moves' was my main feedback

No, I think they were saying more so that if you have access to forum but no code, you'll have to wait until Monday because Sony will basically be out of office until then.

I think it's unfortunate that they aren't utilizing the camera to make DS4 movements more precise though.

The 2019 one? If so, great work. I voted on it during the jam :)
Yes, and thanks! I love the jams, have entered them all so far. But dear god does time fly in this game. I have stayed up way too late almost every night of the beta. Just wish we could discuss it more openly, but I suppose there will be a time for that later.

That was a great stream with some amazing stuff and some good advice about the thermometer and tidying up, my Dream was a hell of a mess.
Agreed, super helpful to understand how that works with stretching and single sculpt forms. About cleanup, yeah...my level is remixable and it just kind of has stuff all over the place haha. I should probably make it tidy while I tinker with it some more this weekend. There was so much I wanted to add to my Jam, but just didn't have time. Every time I had an idea I had to go learn how to do it first. :)

Great post SuperBoss - I'm sorry :(

Turning in place with the move controllers is like damn near impossible for me and it's kind of frustrating, I just need to keep practicing
Did you only just get it today? It becomes a lot more natural as you use them more. I found it extremely frustrating for the first few days and now it's fluid enough for me. Sculpting is another thing, but that's more down to my artistic ability .. :/

Watching the first part of the stream that I missed, how did the pages for that puzzle book get drawn on? Are those intricate strokes that were painted and then shrunk down to book size?

I signed up with two PSNs and I have not gotten a code. I cannot even log into the forum with either account so I am not expecting anything on Monday.

I have had terrible luck with Sony managed beta codes since the beginning of the console generation. I believe that there is a conspiracy against Canadians in keeping us out of betas.

Just to check, has anyone who got a key from Sony today Canadian?

Sorta painted yes.. but you have to see it in person. he has the remixed version up so you can see what he did. its pretty neat.
