Using .yml file to open multiple files

Hello everyone,

I am trying to implement 2 different IAT's (Implicit Association Tests) on an Android tablet. Since the experiment will be performed by the facilitators on the field, I want to keep the screens as simple as possible. I am wondering if there is a way of starting the experiment

-without the intro screens (the ones where the experimenter enters the experiment directory, subject number and the log file directory)
-keep the experiment selection screen available (the one that includes the gaze cuing experiment as an example).

I've tried editing the .yml file, but it only starts a single experiment, not the opensesame software.

If I could do that, the facilitator will only be able to see the two different tasks and select one of them to start the experiment.

I am wondering if it is possible and I would really appreciate any help,



  • Hi Mert,

    No I'm afraid that's not possible. The opensesam-autorun.yml allows you to bypass all start-up questions, but not only some of them. Perhaps you could integrate the two IATs into a single experiment file, and then integrate a selection menu into the experiment?


    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.

  • Thanks Sebastian!
