If this template helps then use it. If not then just delete and start from scratch.
OS: various windows and mac
PsychoPy version: 2020.2.10
Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?: standalone and anaconda
What are you trying to achieve?:
I am trying to run demo_eye_tracking on desktop versions of psychopy with some interns (they all either downloaded psychopy on mac/windows standalone/anaconda) so they can adapt the tpronk code for their own online eyetracking experiments.
The first issue comes about when we try to run the experiment on the desktop instead of pavlovia. We have tried to run both demo_eye_tracking and demo_eye_tracking2, either cloned from github or run from the in-built psychopy demos, and we always get the same error: that the letters “ale” appear on line 31 of the code, which crashes the experiment. I am able to delete the code in coder view, but I don’t know where the error is in the builder, so I don’t know how to save the amendment of the error.
Second, if I do run the amended demo_eye_tracking_lastrun.py from the coder, I am able to enter a participant number, then it goes to the “Downloading additional resources. One moment please…” page. But then it just freezes on that page indefinitely. I am not seeing any error messages, and then I just escape and it ends.
I was wondering if this might be because I should be running the experiment from the builder, but I’m not able to because I don’t know where the “ale” typo is in the builder? Or I was hoping you might have another idea.
Thanks for your time!
