When I install psychopy_visionsicence plugin from the plugin installer, I get this message after saying it success installed.

the error message is

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Program Files\PsychoPy\lib\site-packages\wx\”, line 3407, in

from …colors import Color
ValueError: attempted relative import beyond top-level package

then when I restart psychopy to check if noise stim is now added to the components,
after closing the tips window and clicking on the builder, the builder automatically quits and closes.

I can solve the automatic quiting issue by erasing the visionscience folder in plugin>psychopy>appdata>users directory but still no noise stim in the gui panel.

Has anyone experienced this issue?
Please help thanks.

Hi, there was indeed a bug with the plugin but that has now been fixed :slight_smile: You would need to first uninstall the plugin and re-install to get the latest version from PyPI.

The install of the new version seems to work now. Thank you!
