[solved] Text displays not waiting for keypress before advancing (on win7, but not Linux)

edited February 2014 in OpenSesame

Hi Folks,
I'm experiencing problems with the text display plugin, where duration is set to keypress, but the experiment proceeding after about 1 second without any key being pressed. This is happening with OS 0.27.4 running under win7. The backend is pyGame. This does not happen with linux (openSUSE 12.2), but does happen with windows 8.

Any ideas what might be causing this and how I might go about fixing it?

    Hi Neon,

    Do you have auto-response turned on by any chance?


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

    Hi Sebastiaan,

    Thanks for your reply. I found that running the experiment in a separate process stopped this occurring. I didn't check autoresponse, but don't recall enabling it.

    Best wishes,
