Description of the problem:
I am trying to sync “new” experiments to Pavlovia (I say “new” because these are copies of experiments that are already functioning on Pavlovia), and I’ve run into 2 errors that suddenly occur:
1.) .csv files are read differently now compared to a month or so ago. Previously, integer values would be read from columns automatically as integers, but now all values are read in as strings. This throws an error during experimentation of course, and the solution I’ve found is to specify the value type in the psyexp file: $int(COLUMN_FROM_FILE) instead of previously using $COLUMN_FROM_FILE. Not sure if there is any other way around that one, but I haven’t seen this issue discussed on the forum.
2.) There are several versions of psychopy to choose from in the “settings” tab of the .psyexp file, but many are non-functional (2021.1 doesn’t work as a choice sometimes, but other times it actually does work). I’ve now tried to sync new experiments with “latest” as the choice, or choosing the blank option, and both have created the experiment on Pavlovia - but online it says “Software Version UNKNOWN” or “0” and then the experiment does not run. Would it be possible to get a list of working software versions so I know what to choose from the list?
Thanks in advance!
