OS: Win 10
PsychoPy version: 1.90.1
What are you trying to achieve?:
Program a “tracking” experiment using a foot pedal as a “mouse/joystick”
Can I please ask your help regarding the following question:
- I believe it is not possible to program a tracking experiment using the more convencional Builder interface without adding code if I am not using a mouse, isn’t it?
- My pedal is not exactly a convencional joystick but is a gaming devices that is able to provide x, y (and z) coordinates to my laptop (tested this outside Python/Psychopy environment).
- I have programed a pilot tracking task with Psychopy were I track the position of a moving object by moving a cursor object with a “mouse” (my touchpad). Now I would like to use the coordinates provided by the pedal to perform the tracking…
- I have been trying to add Python script to builder but I am struggling a bit… I understand that I need to use “Pyglet” or “Pygame”, which in my poor understanding are sort of “programs” based on Python that allow using joystick devices, aren’t they? I have run into some problems while trying to use Pyglet and Pygame… there is also some info in the net that Pyglet is not working well with Psychopy… I am correct? Can anyone give advice regarding whether I should try to use Pyglet or Pygame (or something else)?
