Unexpected Error When Running Practice Experiment

Hi,

I'm new to the opensesame software so am not entirely confident when using it. When i finished the practice experiment (eye cue gazing), the software states that there is an error when i try and run the experiment. This message comes up and not sure what it means.

If anyone could help that would be great, thanks.

The experiment did not finish normally for the following reason:

Unexpected error

    Hi Beth,

    You've probably referred to the image as gaze_[gaze_cue].png, as in the beginner tutorial, right? If so, the variable gaze_cue is, at least in some cases, an empty string, resulting in gaze_.png. In other words, you probably have an empty field somewhere in your gaze_cue column.

    Does that make sense?

    Cheers!

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

    Okay, thanks for your help. I'll have a look over that.

    Thanks,
