Is there any real-time 2nd window support planned for Psychopy? Currently the overall design concept is start it and after a relatively slowish initialization, hope that things go well. However to use Psychopy in the ‘real world’ psychophysics particularly in neurophysiology, you have to be able to have some real-time control of the experiment. Some ideas if they are not already implemented:
I’d be happy if after running from the builder, you can have option for a standard output window for simple text output to be displayed in a second monitor window so at least you know what trial # you are currently on, and perhaps allow simple pauses and text input to change trial logic by the User instead of a prewritten algorithm.
A second python process bound to another CPU core (a la iohub) can run a Qt window or other window/button/slider/textbox manager displayed on a second monitor which can interact with the main psychopy process.
If this is already solved/implemented, apologies if I haven’t found it already, but currently I don’t see any options for stdout in the psychopy Data outputs documentation page.
