Running old files on modern displays.
I've read some threads here on calculating visual angle of stimuli based on pixel count, display screen width etc (I'm currently looking into this with my old lab) but I have a question regarding using OpenSesame files on monitors that differ from the originally used monitor.
As I've alluded to I'm running old OpenSesame files on modern LCD screens when the files were originally used with an LG CRT 21" monitor. The LCD screens are much bigger than the CRT.
I have kept the original resolution in the instructions and not changed any of the stimuli pixel size etc. however, when presented the stimuli are packed much closer together in space than the original presentation on the old CRT monitor.
Is there something I need to adjust on the LCD monitor such as resolution to match the original monitor (which I've tried, and it looks better but maybe not quite right) etc. that will replicate the original stimuli presentation?
As always, thanks for your time,
