Mouse Trouble in newest version of Psychopy (2020.2.8)

OS (e.g. Win10): Win10
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 2020.2.8

Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new version of Psychopy and tried to build my usual experiment in the builder.

The experiment is a visual searching where subjects have to look for targets (1 or 2) and after detecting click on them (targets are pictures). The structure of exp in psychopy was (see pic1.) 1) routine for instruction 2) routine for target 3) routine for images and mouse 4) another routine for images and mouse 5) routine for changing probs. The 3d and 4th routines were for 2 mouse clicks - the probe ends when 2 clicks have occurred (2 mouse elements in each routine). Thus 2-4 steps were included in loop, insert excel file with conditions in loop. Just a standard procedure and everything was OK (with older versions).

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
Now (with the mentioned version) this scheme doesn’t work, I mean everything ok, but probe (every probe) ends only after 3 or 4 clicks instead of 2. And there are no mistakes, warning messages and so on. My friend and I looked through code, compared it with analogical ones and everything must work as I described.
Maybe someone knows how to fix it, or there is a bug in the new version.
Thank you :slight_smile:


Please could you share your .psyexp file with us here so that I can take a look? :slight_smile:

Hi There,

Thanks for sharing this. The mouse component looks fine to me (as you have said). So that I can run this locally please can you sync your project to pavlovia (publically) then share the URL with me so that I can run it?

To clarify, if you select experiment settings (cog icon) > use version and change the version, does that systematically change if your experiment does/doesn’t work as you expect?

Thanks :slight_smile:
