Setting up an experiment on Psychopy

Hello all,

I am new to Psychopy and coding, so I am currently using the builder view on Psychopy. I have setup an experiment following tutorials online but of course my experiment isnt the same so I have guessed most of it. I am running into a lot of problems doing this.

My experiment displays images and after the image displays the stimulus is presented ( a small dot). This either appears above or below the image and the participant is to react accordingly to if the dot appeared above or below. The dot is to appear at varying times (0.5, 1, 1.5, and 2 seconds after the image is displayed). The display times of the dot needs to be random and so does its position (above or below).

After every 3 images, a video appears. There are 9 videos in total and I also would like the videos to appear in a random order, different for each participant.

I believe I have done everything wrong, from the xlsx conditions file to the routine setup! Please help!

We can’t help you with “I have done everything wrong” I’m afraid. For that level of help you’ll need a supervisor/mentor. If you have a specific error then come back here.

Thank you for your reply!

I have started with the basics and I have managed to do most of it!

There is just one thing I can’t work around and that is displaying stimulus randomly at different locations. I have seen on some posts how to do it in coder view, but would like to know how to do this in builder view if its possible?

Just an update, I have managed to solve the issue by checking one of the demos (navon) located in the Psychopy application. Turns out I was just wording things incorrectly!
