Description of the problem: I have been stuck on creating this experiment for months now due to Pavlovia errors that pop up randomly and seem to make no sense nor have a clear fix. I have programmed and run this experiment before and this should not be this hard. I have been getting the following “extension not supported” error regarding my entire conditions spreadsheet and haven’t a single clue why. I have made sure there is no extra white space in column headers, I have changed this spreadsheet numerous times, rewritten it, etc.
I had resorted to reverse-designing my experiment via a colleagues of mine that I KNOW runs successfully on Pavlovia and have been syncing to Pavlovia after I make any minor change. I was just finishing up tailoring the practice block to my respective task where it had actually been running just fine until I apparently added an End_Practice text screen following it and then once again received this error when I tried to run it. The last two block loops in the exp I have not touched from the original experiment that I know works online, so I have just been playing with the practice block. This error has still popped up for me too when I create a new psychopy experiment ONLY with the practice block. When I delete any of the components I think may have caused it that I was just changing, the error just continues to persist. It pops up after I press the spacebar to my initial instructions screen.
At this point, it’s been three months of trying to reconcile this same error with minimal help from the forum or documentation and I’m going to have to move to a different program if I cannot fix this soon to collect data for a grant proposal. Apologies for the frustration in this post, but this error now haunts my nightmares and is about to be my grad school villain origin story. Any help would so beyond greatly appreciated. Let me know if I can provide any more information.
