Description of the problem:
Basic info about the task: I have a simple rating task where mainly participants read short stories which updates each trial and make a rating using a slider. I originally built the experiment using psychopy 3.1.0 and the generated js file has unversioned psychoJS. I just collected data on Prolific, which I only had 8 complete responses with 31 returned.
Question1: From the messages I received and incomplete results saved, for many people, the experiment crashed (suddenly froze/went black), and this happened to Firefox, Chrome and Safari on Windows and Mac. what’s the fix for this? According to this post (Increasing memory usage - memory leak?), the issue is not fixed for 2020.2.2 although it was supposed to be.
Question2: I have a general question on how to use the latest PsychoJS. Is importing the unversioned PsychoJS (does unversioned come with all the latest development?) enough? Or certain things happen with the compile process such that you have to download the latest Psychopy and then compile? I am just confused about this even after reading this post.
Question3:I collected some pilot data several months ago, at that time, the main issue was that some participants had an error ‘TypeError: Cannot read property ‘readPixels’ of undefined’ as reported in other posts (e.g.Type Error: readPixel web browser issue). I think this is gone now (waiting for some people to report back so not 100% sure), which makes me think that importing the unversioned PsychoJS fixed it. So I am benefiting from the better browser compatibility of the latest version, but then at the same time makes me concerned that the memory leak issue is still present in the latest version?
I really need to begin data collection soon, so any advice on how to proceed is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
