Dim light is currently imposing disadvantage on attack rolls, it should only be imposing disadvantage on perception checks. Also 3 out of the 4 characters in my party with dark vision are also getting disadv from dim light.

Not an issue, intended by devs and they know they have deviated from RAW.

This is indeed as designed. 

  • Bright Light: No disadvantage
  • Dim Light: Disadvantage, unless you have Darkvision
  • Darkness: Disadvantage (even with Darkvision)

This is different from Tabletop because Solasta plays a lot with Light. We want to encourage players to use lighting and avoid having a full Darkvision party to just do all the levels in the dark (which would look terrible on screen), and lessen the gap between non-Darkvision and Darkvision characters
