Sending triggers - different issues
I have several doubts about sending triggers from OpenSesame experiments to EEG recording system. So, I'll try to be brief and hopefully anyone might be able to help me. I really would appreciate any support....
Using a parallel port: I have an experiment using the dlportio.dll through a Python inline script. Previously I was using a computer with Windows Xp, so I had downloaded the drivers for it, but now I'm gonna use Windows 10, and I don't know which drivers should I download, as just drivers up to Windows 7 are available in the website.
Using a USB serial port: on the other hand, we have another experiment running in a laptop without parallel port, so we bought a c-pod device from CEDRUS, in order to get the triggers. Our EEG software is BrainVision, so we got the c-pod for it. When we install the drivers I realize this device emulates a serial port. So, I don't know how to deal with this situation now, since I have all my Python code with the dlportio.dll. My specific questions are:
- should I change all my code to set a serial port? how?
- it is possible just to change the port address (e.g from 888 port, to COM4 port) and not to change the rest of the code?
- is there any specific code form CEDRUS to use with OpenSesame?
Summing up, I'm really lost here, specially because I'm not very skilled programming in Pyhton (not in other languages either ). I had a lot of help form a friend to got my experiments done one year ago, but he is not available now to help me with this, so I'm asking for help here, as I think it is the best place to do it
Thank you in advance, and congratulations for this amazing program.
