[solved] Experiment always crashes
For my bachelor thesis, I want to test the effect of language on our time perception. In order to conduct the study, I created an experiment with opensesame. To be honest, I have no clue about IT and I asked a friend of mine, who studies IT, to help me.
So, I spent the whole weekend trying to make an experiment with 4 little video files. I wanted to have a practice sequence with 4 different sets and a experimental sequence with 32 different experiment sets (each consisting of 2 primes, that again exist of a ladybird video and a sentence, and a purely temporal sentence after it).
All in all, my independent variables should be ladybird direction (left-to-right, right-to-left, up-to-down and down-to-up) and my dependent variable are the reaction times of my target sentences (of the purely temporal sentences).
In short, everytime I want to run my experiment, it crashes somewhere in the middle of it and I don’t know why. I am completely desperate right now because I want to conduct a study with about 60 participants, but can’t do this, if the experiment always crashes.
On this Google Drive link you will find my experiment:
This is the research that my study will be based on:
Boroditsky, L. Does language shape thought?: Mandarin and English speakers' conceptions of time Cognitive psychology, Elsevier, 2001, 43, 1-22
There will be modifications concerning the stimuli (I want to use moving stimuli and add left-to-right, right-to-left, up-to-down and down-to-up directions instead of a vertical/horizontal orientation).
Thanks in advance!
P.S. the friend who helped me to set up the experiment said that he found some errors in the .py files of the media_player_vlc plugin and fixed it. That’s why the little videos are working right now, but still, it crashes. I attached the media_player_vlc plugin folder as well. Maybe this will help. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0_GPufxv_YIMEJla1Ryc1Z2ZHc&usp=sharing
I don’t know, I am a total amateur in this area!
