Psychopy v2023.2.1 error on running previous protocols

OS (e.g. Win10): Win11 22H2
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 2023.2.1
Standard Standalone? (y/n) yes
What are you trying to achieve?: Run experiments made in previous versions of Psychopy

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
I updated to the last Psychopy version and had the error down bellow while trying to run some experiments made on previous versions, which is all my current experiments and some of the new ones under development. No previous version was older than 2022.1.4 (I was building the experiments at home and at work. Different computers with different psychopy versions. Newer at work). I have already tried to run using the “Use Psychopy version” resource and it works fine. I am posting this just in case it is some sort of bug worth checking.

Thanks.

I am having the same issue. We bought a few more laptops for testing and programs made in an older version of psychopy now give “nameError: name ‘logFile’ is not defined”. I have gone into settings and set the version to the one that the program was made in (2022.2.5), but then the program runs incredibly slowly. Hopefully someone will have an answer!

This is a bug, it’s essentially that the variable logFile is only created if “Save log file” is checked in Experiment Settings, but as of 2023.2.0 it’s referred to regardless, hence the error.

We’ve got a fix for this which will be in 2023.2.2, in the meantime ticking “Save log file” in Experiment Settings should avoid this error.

Perfect! Thank you very much!

Hello Todd and everyone else.

I don’t want to open yet another thread, but found another issue on updating PsychoPy.

I have created an Ishihara task for color blind screening. I present the plate, add five dynamic text components for options and a slider for responses (radio style). All plates and answering options are in an excel file. This worked great to collect responses and I had even added probable responses for normal vision, Protanopia/Protanomaly and Deuteranopia/Deuteranomaly, meaning I can provide imediate feedback to participants. Of course this is not 100% acurate, but it attends my exclusion criteria necessity. But I digress…

As it is, and independent of code components, the slider doesn’t work anymore. The first trial appears, plate and text components, but as soon as I choose one of the responses the loop crashes with the following error:

    rating = self.labels[int(round(rating))]
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not subscriptable

My question is: is there significant changes to the behavior of the slider component in the current PsychoPy version?! As tested before, if I force the use of previous versions (e.g. 2022.1.4), the loop works just fine.

I’ll be glad to provide further information if needed.
Thanks a lot.
