Experiment crashing after psychopy upgraded

I had an experiment running in the 2022 psychopy version. After dealing with a small issue (colors in the text component were not being recognized) i upgraded to the latest v2023.2.3 and now nothing is working.

I no longer even see a normal initialization screen.
A text that is set for 2 seconds is frozen indefinitely etc…

the errors for example are as follows

PsychoJS.js:803 TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'hide')
    at _GUI._onStartExperiment (GUI.js:607:16)
window.onerror @ PsychoJS.js:803
log4javascript.js:148 FATAL 18:21:24.414 _GUI.dialog psychojs-2023.2.3.js:1200 | {

Is there an easy solution to all of the issues my upgrade created or is it better to just go back to the downgraded version?
