[open] questions re OpenSesame on Android
Dear Sebastiaan & OpenSesame community,
I've recently started looking into Android tablets for visual stimuli presentation to subjects and came across OpenSesame. I have a couple of questions pertaining the functionality of OpenSesame on Android:
- is it possible to load a 'default' experiment and configuration file (for subject location, etc) on OpenSesame startup?
- I could not figure out how to set the display orientation for an experiment. OpenSesame will change the display orientation instead of using the tablet's current display orientation. I wish I could somehow configure this more flexibly since tablet orientation might be a function of the general experimental setup.
- is there a way to use 'true full screen' mode, i.e., hide the Android Back, Home and TaskManager buttons? (One could use tape but hiding these buttons via software functionality might be a more flexible solution. As far a I know, Android 4.4 should allow this.)
- remote control of experiments: I understand that OpenSesame is mainly used for closed-loop experiments where the subject does interact with the experiment by providing some feedback. For my purposes I'd like to control the experiment remotely and on the fly: based on a certain condition (i.e, the brain activity of a subject), I'd like to show a different image (from a list of predefined images). In our latest study  we've developed a python tcp mmap server  receiving input from a matlab client  via the network. It should hopefully not be too hard to run  on Android and use a while loop in the experiment to check for the next stimulus file. But maybe OpenSesame has some remote control functionality already implemented?
- multi-screen / tablet synchronization: how do I show the same stimulus on multiple screens? I'm under the impression that OpenSesame will only use one screen by default but I need to show the same stimulus on multiple screen ("visual arena"). How would one achieve this? Once I've figured out how to remotely control a tablet experiment it should be easy to keep multiple tablets in-sync.
any feedback is very much appreciated.
