'UnicodeDecodeError' - Error message when trying to open OpenSesame file
I just tried to open an OpenSesame experiment, which I haven't looked into in a while and got this error message:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xbe in position 11: invalid start byte
Unfortunately, I have no idea how to deal with this. Is there anything I can do to open the file?
In case this is relevant: the experiment contains a digit span test to test working memory capacity and a self-paced reading task.
Alternatively, I was wondering if I can import a study downloaded from JATOS to OpenSesame, somehow. I uploaded the OS Experiment in question to JATOS a few months ago, where it seems to work fine, and I was hoping I could solve my problem with opening the file, by simply downloading it from JATOS. Is it possible to open files downloaded from JATOS in OpenSesame, and if yes, how would I proceed here?
Thank you very much in advance,
