Hey folks,

I ran into the following error when trying to run the demo (rigth after unpacking the demos).

System information:

In case one of you encountered the same error upon using the rift class I’d be happy to know of any solution or that this is a known error.

Kind regards

~Are you able to update PsychoPy? I don’t seem to get that error on my end. ~ Looks like you are using it already.

I guess one way to correct this is to explicitly specify the mirror size using the ‘mirrorRes’ attribute when creating the window.

mirrorRes=(800, 600) for instance.

I tried to run the Demo with specified mirrorRes=(800,600), but the error still occurs. The error also occurs on another system:
