Python Quitting Unexpectedly Mac

Hey everyone. It is my first time using PsychoPy and no matter how simple an experiment I try to run I get the same error message with python quitting unexpectedly.

I am using a mac version 12.2.1 and PsychoPy standalone 2022 1.3 for macOS

The message I get from PsychoPy is this;

Running: /Users/bananaskies/Desktop/PsychoPy/Stroop/Stroop Experiment_lastrun.py ##

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks :slight_smile: !

Same issue here! Are you running an M1 2020 Pro?

Oh no! M1 2020 MacBook air…so maybe it’s to do with the M1 2020 :frowning:

Hi there,

Thanks so much both for flagging. Could you please run the following from the terminal, just after an experiment crashes:

cat ~/.psychopy3/last_app_load.log

Then could you screenshot or copy and paste the result?

Thanks!

Kim

I’m having the same issue on my mac. I ran the above code and this is what I received:
