Experiment stuck on initializing experiment (after updating to 2020.2)


URL of experiment: https://run.pavlovia.org/APPL/gender_perception_condition_2_very_female_right_voiced_first/html/

Description of the problem:
I was able to run this experiment just fine prior to updating my local PsychoPy to 2020.2. However, now the experiment is stuck on the initializing page after pushing the experiment to Pavlovia. I know that the stuck on the initialization page may indicate there are javascript errors. But, the script was able to be run before. I was wondering if anyone can help me out on this.

Thanks so much!

You initialize a string:

blank = new visual.TextStim({
    win: psychoJS.window,
    name: 'blank',
text: /*  */

This is a comment in JavaScript. Initiliaze the string in question with, for instance, a space-sign. You don’t write which version you are actually using. If you update to 2020.2.8. this error should be fixed.

Hi @JensBoelte,
Thanks for much. I was able to run it after updating to 2020.2.8. I appreciate this. I have encountered another problem i was wondering if you could help me here. The new version now introduces a different stye of Slider than the previous version. I have attached the before and current image below. Is there a way to adjust the appearance to make it look like before? Please let me know if I should create a new post instead. This is the link to the new experiment: https://run.pavlovia.org/APPL/gender_perception_coondition_2_very_female_1124/html

Best wishes Jens
