OS: Ubuntu 16.4
PsychoPy version: 1.85.3
Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?: Should have all dependencies installed?
What are you trying to achieve?:
My experiment loops over trials which are audio files of blocks of a narrative. After each file has played there is a pause until the subject decides to begin listening to the next part of the narrative. The subject’s task is to give a response (by pressing space, but it doesn’t really matter how, could be a mouse click as well) based on subjective cues in the narrative (there are no correct answers). I would like to give a quick visual feedback (eg a cross on the screen) a couple seconds long when the subject gives a response, just so they know that their response has been registered. The time of the response should be saved relative to the time of the audio file, and the trial should continue regardless of responses until the the audio file has been fully played.
Here is a picture of the experiment WITHOUT any feedback (seems to work):
What did you try to make it work?: I’ve looked at the stroop demo as well as http://www.psychopy.org/recipes/builderFeedback.html, among other examples. The last thing I’ve tried doing is using the code component in builder. I’ve tried making the feedback show up on the screen after a space bar press by adding the feedback code both within the narrative trial and as a separate trial but within the same loop. I’ve also tried inserting the code within different places (eg each frame) within the code component.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
What seems to happen is that either the feedback doesn’t show up at all, it shows up immediately at the beginning of the trial, or the responses register but the feedback shows up when the trial has ended rather than immediately.
