RDK using direction from condition

Hi! I’m new to psychopy and creating an experiment with the RDK stimuli. I want to vary the direction based on a condition list uploaded in my routine. I named the condition: WDir with a value of 0 or 180. When specifying the direction I entered $WDir.

Each time I try to do this I recieve the message:
looks like your variable ‘WDir’ in ‘dir’ should be set to update.

I am unsure what this means and what I need to change.


Hello Jenny,

could it be that you forgot to change the property orientation from constant to set every repeat

Best wishes Jens

Thank you so much that got it working! You just saved me hours of tearing my hair out
