I am currently trying to get psychopy to send triggers to our brainvision EEG system through a parallel port we have installed on the task presentation computer.
I am having the hardest time getting psychopy to send triggers, as most solutions are in builder view, and we are working with coder view.
According to our device manager and a LTP port testing software, our parallel port’s address seems to be 3FF8.
Accodring to the posts already on discourse I have done/tried the following:
- I have downloaded the inpout32 and inpout64 drivers and put these into the same folder as my task script.
- I have found a script that allows one to send triggers using a trigger box & a serial port, but as this does not match our current set up, it does not work.
- The information at psychopy.parallel - functions for interacting with the parallel port — PsychoPy v2021.2 does not seem to work. When running a script with the recommended code, psychopy opens _inpout.py which crashes here…
Has anyone had this problem before?
Alternatively, if anyone has an example script of a very simple experiment in psychopy coder that sends triggers to brainvision I would be eternally grateful!
