I’ve been working with Psychopy to develop a self-paced reading task these days. You can actually see that my few posts all relate to this. Almost everything now works well but one thing.
The experiment somehow crashes and stops in the middle of the experiment. In my case, there are 320 sentence stimuli to be processed and it always halts around 199th or 200th stimuli with error depicted below.
Since similar things happend before with totally different task, I guess it is something to do with memory problem or somehow Psychopy thinks it’s too much. Until now, I was splitting one experimental file into two so that I can change the file while participant take rest. When I split stimuli, say 320 sentences into 160 each, halting never happens. It is possible because I know that it stopped near 200 when I tested.
This bothers me when I need randomization of whole list of stimuli. If I split the stimuli and experiment into two, I can’t fully randomize with one command in the Psychopy. I have to randomly assign stimuli into two groups first, and than feed each group to two different experiment files.
Is there any good solution for this?
Thank you for reading.
