Area surrounding a mouse click


I have two routines, each with its own stimulus and its own mouse that collects response. What is the extent to which the mouse click will operate?

I notice that if I setup an adjacent routine with its own mouse (collects response), the first mouse is still responding as if the first stimulus was clicked and not the stimulus in the adjacent routine even though it is the stimulus in the second routine that is clicked.

Below are my mouse settings. The mouse names are different in the two routines, but their settings are the same as shown below.

OS (e.g. Win10): mac sierra
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 2020.2.3
Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?: scratch build


Please could you clarify what you mean by:

Is it that your data output files are not showing what you expect? or are you having something track the mouse continuously on every frame across routines?


I located the cause. Sorry, i couldn’t find a way to close the ticket.
Initially i thought it might be the radius the mouse click was effective in.
Turns out, since i was checking at “end routine”, the mouse’s clicked_name[0] was being checked athough since the mouse hadn’t clicked on anything clicked_name was not defined.

All fixed now! thanks
