I’ve encountered two issues this morning with v5.0.1 of SuperLab.
Previously an event that had a Microphone Input for a correct response would terminate as soon as the microphone detected an input if the “ignore voice key release” was selected under options.
However, it appears that this is not happening in the version I am running today. The event continues until the microphone input terminates and then it appears to wait for the duration listed in the “Voice key is considered released after XXX milliseconds of no voice key detection”.
Is this intended it causes issues with the experiments we run in our lab and I would prefer if the event would terminate at the start of the voice key detection rather than once the voice key is released. Is it possible to include this as an option or what does “ignore voice key release” really do?
As well in another program I have 32 trials linked to the Critical block. I have tried multiple methods to get the 32 trials to be shown multiple times for a total of 320 trials, but the Critical block keeps terminating after the 24th trial. I cannot figure out why it terminates after 24 trials when there are obviously 32 trials linked to the block and I was attempting to have it loop for a total of 320 trials.
I have attached my experiment folder. The critical trials should do the following:
- appears until button 1 or 7 are pressed and held on a RB-730 button box
picture of an object shown for 300ms
picture of a hand shown until key is released
screen erases and waits for microphone input
scoring information comes up on screen and waits for key press of c,i or s
The trials run as expected, but the block terminates early and I cannot seem to get the looping to work.
I’ve tried using the looping selection of showing the block 10 times and it stops at 24.
I’ve tried When to Present by choosing to present block if criteria are not met and set the criteria to number of trials = 320 (my usual method in v4.5)
I even tried the Extra Actions of presenting a maximum of 320 trials.
I reprogrammed this experiment in v4.5 quickly this morning as I need to begin testing on Tuesday and I have no problem generating 320 trials (32 trials shown 10 times).
My lab machines are running OSX 10.5.8.
