  • Good call! I cannot import numpy or any module that uses numpy in the debug window. After using print(os.environ['PATH']) in the debug window, I found the path C:\Users\miche\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python27\site-packages\numpy\.libs. And low and beh…
  • As it turns out, the CRS system is not really access-friendly for those who do not use their viewer or MATLAB. We figured out one option to at least get the timings aligned. You can connect your stimulus PC via a parallel port/coaxial connection to…
  • Hey Sebastiaan, Regarding the first error: I don't think it is a string variable. When checking their types they both show up as classes. Also, as mentioned, the same code works fine with the latest stable version. I just noticed though that it…
  • Just for clarification: the issue with the images was not specific to the latest prerelease version but already an issue on the latest stable version. I assume that it is really specific to the pictures. Eduard and I observed that other .bmps seem t…
  • Hey tnells, I assume var.total_reward and var.reward_value are both supposed to be floats or integers but judging from the error output one of them isn't. Maybe you can print the variables or check their type() while running your experiment to se…
  • As a side note: I am having issues with presenting images loaded in like above but only with the expyriment and legacy backend, not with psychopy. However, OS does not throw an error, it just does not present the images, while it does so when using …
  • Hey Sebastiaan, I just tested it with the latest release I could find (opensesame_3.2.0a10-py2.7-win32-1) but could not get it to work. I am getting a bunch of other errors that do not seem to have anything to do with the issue at hand. For ex…
  • Hey Josh, It should not, but it does skip the block and does not raise an error. I've made a toy example of what I mean. The break if condition is in the block loop item and it is a variable that is not defined earlier (or anywhere else for that …
  • I just gave the expyriment backend a test spin. When running it, I cant even get into the first block. After 2-3 minutes it crashes with: TypeError: delay requires one integer argument So, I guess my best shot is to go with inline script(s) inst…
  • Well, that's good news I chose psychopy because I thought I remember it is the best when it comes to timing. Given that in this experiment timing is very critical (some stimuli are present only a few frames on a 120Hz monitor) I figured that is ri…
  • I monitored overall memory! I just ran the same thing while monitoring the memory use of OpenSesame. The OpenSesame application does not change memory on either PC (a few MBs). pythonw.exe, however, starts on one PC at around 80MB and towards the e…
  • Assuming I would step away from the usage of feedback items and just present all instructions in inline scripts with a single canvas that I overwrite (or maybe even delete manually) every time, do you think this would solve the issue for now?
  • ...I just tested it on the other PC (Win 7/4GB RAM). Also here, the problem is not solved yet unfortunately. On this PC it always crashes somewhat later when it is already inside the prac_trainLoop.
  • Hi Sebastiaan, I just tried it with my 8GB RAM laptop using the pre-release of OS 3.1.5a3 that you provided. Unfortunately that also did not resolve the issue for me (neither on garbage collection "yes" nor on "no"). On this computer it still cra…
  • Hi Sebastiaan, thanks for the help. As you suggested, I set disable garbage collection in the main script to no. I assume you meant to load the script an editor. Unfortunately however, this did also not fix the problem, for neither PC I tested i…
  • I just tried that but it did unfortunately not fix the issue. I was at 42% for my 8 GB PC and it crashed with the same error around the same point in the experiment as before the change.
  • Hi Jarik, Sebastiaan, thanks for the help. I did not know that sketchpads eat more resources than feedback items. That's good to know. Changing that helped already. I can get through the first loop and even more depending on the machine I am usin…
  • ...maybe also interesting to know: On my computers, the script runs for a few trials before it stops displaying the stimuli (except for the fixation dot) and then finally crashes. I just stripped the entire file of all the other sequences that f…
  • Sounds like a solution. I will check it out and report back if it does not work -- thanks! PS: Is there any way to update older posts? I wanted to update the title of this thread to indicate that the problem has been solved, but for some reason I…
  • Just to update this post: I fixed the issue but clearing the canvas and creating as few canvases/vars as possible outside the loop. Since then I do not have this issue anymore.
  • I can confirm that this works also for Open Sesame 2.9.7 (i.e. older versions). Thanks Jarik!
  • Sorry for digging up this corpse but I am trying your solution absurd. It works perfectly. However, once I exit the test mode it doesn't anymore. Does this mean I have to start the computer in test mode all the time when I want to run experiments or…
  • I create the canvas in the prepare phase (self.offline) under a certain reference (exp.canvasA) on Trial A. Then I fill that canvas with certain stimuli (line and circle elements) and present it in the run phase. Then I do exactly the same in the ne…
  • Hm... my experiment is actually very simple. I only log integers, strings, a single list of 10 tuples (size 2) and a dictionary with 4-5 lists (all no larger than size 10). I cannot imagine that this is the issue. I create my stimuli using larg…
  • Hi, not sure whether that has been wished already but it would be very handy if the text item would have a "go back" option. Kind of restarting the current e.g. sequence item. Oftentimes, participants just continue to quickly to read through t…
  • Yes! It is only when trying to open the webpage using the link in the error message window. I think I was inserting 'None' in the keylist instead of just None when manually programming the response item. So thats why the error message refers me to…
  • Hi Sebastiaan, That makes sense, yeah! But I am just lazy and hence a frequent user of the replace function Thanks for the congratz. Great program! Keep it up!
  • Hi, I really like that there is now a comment/uncomment all function. Really helps! Unfortunately the increase/decrease indent function is gone since the new update. I know there are shortcuts for doing that (at least for increasing the indent…
  • Ok, I'll upload one next week!
