Change psychopy default time recording settings


in my csv output files the starting time of my first component doesn´t starts at 0. It seems like psychoPY is counting from the moment on you press the “run experiment” button, even though the experiment didn´t really start yet.

Is there any way to change that so that psychoPy starts counting the time form the start of the first routine/component on?

Thanks in advance for any help

You could add a custom timer and save it’s value to the data file when necessary. myClock=core.Clock()

thisExp.addData(‘Experiment Time’,myClock.getTime())

myClock.reset() to zero the clock
