Description of the problem:
I made an online experiment which is working memory task similar to the Corsi Blocks. In this version I do not used color blocks but images of animals. It is a grid of 9 covered shapes in which photos of animals appear on the screen. When participants need to give their response about which animals were presented, where and in which order, participants need to click on one of nine different shapes create din Psychopy builder. When they click on any of these shapes, a dialogue box appears in which they need to type the name of the animal and its order of presentation.
Everything works well, however, the reaction of the mouse is sometimes very slow. Sometimes I need to click several times on the figures to make one of these boxes show on screen. Furthermore, sometimes the screen freezes a bit while typing in the dialogue boxes.
I think this is because a lot of resources are being consumed every frame for keeping track of the mouse and its interaction with all the different figures on screen.
Is there a way to fix this?
