  • Perfect! Thank you so much for your help Eduard! I'll test the code later today and adapt for my purpose. Cheers, marios
  • As is, the mouse only shows up for a bit in thr center of the screen. Playing around with code (if I remember correctly, by changing the timeout value), Igot it to show up for longer but when I was moving it away from the center it kept pushing bac…
  • Hi Sebastiaan, I finally found some time to get back to this and still I cant figure it out. I moved the canvas functions out of the loop and let the OS control the mouse. But, for some reason I can't get a mouse cursor that can be freely moved by …
  • Thanks Sebastiaan! Initially I was thinking of doing mouse tracking so I went down this route. But, if I decide against it then I could just have the os draw the mouse. Good point. I'll also try the other things you suggested and see what happens.
  • Hi Seastiaan, Thanks for your reply. I think I did install the Tobii SDK but something might have gone awry with the installation. I'm away for a workshop but I'll check and reinstall the SDK when I'm back in the lab. Cheers, marios
  • yes, it was the language setting. Switching the language with Alt+Shift did the trick although I don't know exactly how the problem arose (and how to prevent it from happening). All my PCs have Greek and English keyboard inputs installed and I make …
  • no, no...that was the first thing I checked! At first I thought it was the fact that some of the keyboards were USB and others PS/2 but as an experimentalist I ruled out that hypothesis too. I'll go back to check the Windows XP version across comp…
  • Hi Sebastian, yes...what you understood it correctly. In all trials, except the first, the sound finishes and then the instruction to "press and hold the key" appears. In the first trial, this instruction appears while the sound plays. marios
  • Hey Sebastian, you understood it perfectly I paste below two screenshots to show how this is implemented in E-Prime. Basically, you have a main List (Loop in OS) with the three variable names (first pic) and you pick their values on each trial from…
  • Hi Sebastian, thanks for your response. Glad to hear that more cool stuff are coming our way with 3.1 What you are describing will be a useful feature, especially if you can add some weights in the pairing. For example, if "cat" can be paired let's…
  • Getting back to this after a long time (i.e., teaching OpenSesame this semester) and I have a quick related question (or suggestion for future update). Let's say I want to run 5 trials that will randomly present a letter on the screen at a predefine…
  • Ah, that explains it! I generally use Logitech Attack 3 joysticks for my experiments but I only had a more complex Saitek joystick at home yesterday to play with. Thanks for the reply Edwin, and for the plugin (I used your sample experiment to figur…
  • Thanks for the reply Josh. I've tried the .getjoyaxes() function and the position value I get is a tuple with 5 values. They range from -1 to 1 and the 4th one is always 0. Can't really tell what these numbers mean and I'm not sure why there's 5 of …
  • Signed in after a long time to see what's new (yeah..back to teaching after a sabbatical) and saw this reply. This is awesome!! It was the one thing that I thought was missing from Opensesame and I'm so glad that I was wrong!! Thanks for letting us…
  • Thanks Sebastiaan. I had a feeling it was the preparation of the loop/sequence causing the delay but I had to know for sure
  • Yep! that was it. I changed the "keypress" to 0 in the duration field of the sketchpad and everything works fine. I also have a sketchpad to provide instructions at the very beginning of the experiment which is a bit slow to react to the keypress. T…
  • Thanks Wouter. I moved the code to the prepare phase and it works great. I always thought that the prepare vs run stages was an added convenience that one could ignore and just put everything on the run stage
  • Hi Sebastiaan....I'm not sure but at the same time I'll be very surprised if it's only me who likes it! I just liked the fact that you could set up a sequence really quickly through the dropdown menu. Dragging and dropping each item must take longer…
  • I have taught OpenSesame as part of an undergraduate class on Experimental Psychology which solved a lot of the headaches I used to have when using E-Prime in the past (e.g., handing out license keys to students, letting them take they keys home, wi…
  • Argh! I really liked that feature (which I still enjoy on my mac, but no longer on windows)....I might start a petition to bring it back
  • Excellent! that was it. Thank you very much
  • Hi Edwin. Thank you very much for your input....I really appreciate it. I followed your suggestion, and although it took me a while to figure out how to have a loop run a second loop that runs a sequence, when I managed to do it everything worked fi…
  • Hi Sebastiaan, thanks for your response. I was hoping that there was a way to do this without code. I'm using Python myself but for the class I teach I prefer to stick to the basics. So, may I suggest this as a possible feature for the future? In …
