Dear all!
Please-please help!!

I'm a Master student and for my term paper I should conduct an experiment with Opensesame,but feel as if I'm going to fail!
Here is a short notice about experiment:

Participants should answer whether the word refers to an object with a flat surface or not. By pressing Y if refers and N if doesn’t.Difficulty here is that before each word there should appear a warning signal, than a blank screen and only than a new word appears.I don’t know how to make this appear before each word((
Warning signal (450ms)
Blank screen
(50ms)
Word ( and here answer Y/N )

Secondly,participants should answer whether it is a word on the screen or a nonword, (pressing Wor N).

On example of one word-pair it will look like that:

Warning signal (450ms)
Blank screen
(50ms)
Prime-word:
MAN
(300ms)
Blank screen
(50 ms)
Target-word:
WOMAN ( participants answer
word/nonword )
Participant should give his answer only for the “Target”!the first word appearing on the screen shouldn’t be defined!
How to make it technically?And also again how to make these warning signal and blank screen appear before and between every word-pair?

It would be more understandable if there would be some step-by-step instruction, how to do this.

P.S: I saw the tutorial about simple word-nonword experiment, but they didn't insert there any difficulties like I must do((

Will be really grateful for any help.Thank you beforehand!

Sincerely,
Oksana.

    Hi Oksana,

    Please first take a look at the step-by-step tutorial and the video tutorial:

    These will provide you with a basic understanding of how OpenSesame works. If, after walking through the tutorials, things are still unclear, please describe in detail what you have come up with so far, and what exactly does not work yet. I know it can be difficult at first, but a little effort goes a long way!

    Good luck!

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