Limiting number of identical picture trials presented sequentially

I have an associated query to a recent post by ‘psycho78’ ( I have two main trials that are randomly repeated many times (e.g., 100). Each trial has two events: a pictorial cue and then a circle that appears on the left of screen (LeftPic Trial), or on the right of screen (RightPic Trial). Each circle is positioned by changing the horizontal pixel values; they are essentially the same picture file. I have attached a short version of the SL4.5 file if it helps understand how I’ve set it up.

I am wondering how I can make sure that a specific trial is not repeated any more than four times in a row? I have worked through the solution given to ‘psycho78’ with macros but I can’t get it to work. I have a feeling it is because this particular solution uses two trials, but many stimuli from lists as events. I have two events per trial, but many trials.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
