URL of experiment: Andrew Vu / tTraceTest3 · GitLab
PsychoPy version: v2020.1.3
Standard Standalone?: Yes
What are you trying to achieve?:
Currently trying to create a mouse trail that follows the mouse movement for our group’s experimental trial, which is a trail tracing experiment. An example of what we are trying to replicate can be seen in this paper: https://www.emerald.com/insight/content/doi/10.1108/IJCS-12-2016-0002/full/html. Specifically having our end result look like ‘Figure 5’ in the paper would be best (as seen below).
What did you try to make it work?:
So far, the “Brush” component in the builder provides the closest result to what our group is looking for; a line that follows the mouse movement.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
What would be optimal for us is if the line was automatically generated without any need for mouse clicks. As of now, the left mouse button needs to be held down in order to create the line. Having a way for the line to be continuously created from the start of the trial routine to the end without a need for participants to press any buttons is what we are looking for.
Any help is appreciated.
