  • I see. When I removed it, it didn't seem to work ok. But when I specified "mouse_response" in the End After field, it seems to work fine (but I have to check the timings in the logged data to verify). Thanks Eduard! Regarding the issue with the feed…
  • Hi Eduard, Thanks for your swift reply. I'm not sure I get what you're saying about the "End after item"...where do I check if this is the case? I'm using a feedback for the probe because I set the identity of the stimuli to be displayed with an i…
  • You're a God! Thank Sebastiaan. I confirm that it works perfectly with flushing the keyboard. Thank you so much for this!
  • Thanks Stavro. Unfortunately, it still hangs.
  • Aaaargh! I stripped my code to the bare essentials and still no luck. I attach my experiment which is pretty much one inLine that presents the names of two cities and asks the user to enter a number and press return. The program hangs after about 50…
  • Thanks Sebastian. I'm running the experiment fullscreen...can the keyboard focus go to another app this way? I've tried it on multiple computers and get the same issue.
  • Ok, I get it now! Thanks!!
  • Eduard, I still can't get my head around this and why the code doesn't work in the Run phase. I can see a situation where putting the code in the Prepare phase wouldn't work for me. For example, let's say I have a mouse_response item and I want to s…
  • You're right, it works! Thanks Eduard! m
  • Thanks Vatsal. I'll give it a shot. But I think the problem is with the last step of setting the experiment, variable, ie., this part: exp.set('fix1dur', fix1duration) Up to that point, everything works well. That is, if I print fix1duration I corr…
  • Hi Roelof, Thank you so much for your reply. Since I posted this there was an OS update that seems to have improved much the behavior of forms. I was just asking participants to click radio buttons and all seems to work fine now (....which explains…
  • 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 compu…
  • 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…
