Logging Mouse Positions Every Frame


#1

Hi guys,
can someone explain a littel about logging mouse positions on every frame? Where and how are these data saved? I couldn’t find anything in the excel sheets that were created after running… Thanks!

@fragmag, which version of PsychoPy are you using? When storing mouse positions on every frame, PsychoPy should be logging all x, y positions and button presses (and also clickable objects if applicable) that occur on every screen refresh. The output should be lists in your excel file that show the history of your mouse movement etc for each trial that the mouse was active. A fix was made to the mouse component recently that addresses a bug in the tracking the mouse https://github.com/psychopy/psychopy/pull/2028, originally highlighted by @Michael https://github.com/psychopy/psychopy/issues/2019.
