hank, if you get this please respond immediately. or anyone who might be able to help me! i haven’t slept in two days trying to fix this bug. i had an experiment half-way programmed working perfectly…i would run it every so many additions to make sure it was doing what i wanted it to, and all was well. then i programmed in a bunch more, and went to add a new event, and the program froze and closed (thank god i had been saving!). when i opened it back up, it said something about duplicate preferences and gave me the option to delete the preferences or file them…well i didn’t know what it was talking about, and i certainly didn’t want to delete something i might need, so i chose to file. i went back into the program, entered in a couple more new events, and then tried to run.
oh my god! what happened. the instructions at the beginning that are supposed to end with any response from the participant NEVER GO AWAY. if i change the settings to end with a response OR a fixed time, it will end after the fixed time, but you would think my keyboard was disconnected as it doesn’t respond to touches (it even takes awhile to acknowledge the esc key press). i put it on a fixed time just to see the rest of the experiment, and the problems just kept building. suddenly the events were presenting as if i’d asked for them to be randomized within the trial! simultaneous presentation of stimuli totally broke down. not only would single stimuli appear with the fixation cross null event, but stimuli that i had NOT PAIRED, would pair up for presentation. WHAT IS GOING ON? it was working fine before and i am desperate! i have participants signed up to take this experiment tomorrow morning, and all of a sudden NOTHING IS WORKING!!!
PLEASE HELP ME! ANYONE!?!
