Description of the problem:
I have created an online experiment where participants are asked to adjust a bar orientation with left/right arrow keys (400 trials in total). I tested it on my mac and everything works ok. Unfortunately, I had 10 people who tried it online and for 5 of them there were problems:
- In the middle of the experiment (it is 400 trials, 35 min), the screen went black and the exp crashed.
- Bar adjustment changed speed across the experiment, with the rotation very slow towards the end.
From what I understand (but please correct me if I am wrong), these are issues that are due to memory in Google Chrome.
Do you have any tip to avoid this kind of problems? My images are all 1-2 Kb, but still the problem persists.
In terms of RAM, what is the most efficient way to avoid RAM issues? For example, as a fixation dot I use an image of a small circle, but would a Polygon be more efficient?
