OS: macOS Sonoma 14.0 (on an M2 chip)
PsychoPy version: 2023.2.3
Standard Standalone? (y/n) y
What are you trying to achieve?: Upgrade an experiment from 2021.1.4 to 2023.2.3
Similar context to my other recent post but a different experiment. Our lab computers were updated and 2021.1.4 was no longer working (tasks would not start). I think it had something to do with losing support for python 2.X, but I decided to just move forward and upgrade versions. Note: I didn’t go straight to 2023.2.3, but tried some other versions along the way.
This is more of an observation than an error encountered per se (there has been a whole web of errors and tasks not working as expected, but I wanted to pull this out and highlight it). On opening the experiment, I found that a mystery component (box with a question mark on it) had been added to each of my routines. The name of the component was always the routine name with a “_2” added on the end, and sometimes there was even another component with a “_3” added.
I knew these components didn’t belong so I removed them. Any idea what these are, and why they might have appeared?
(If there is considerable interest, I can try and recreate this situation, but I can’t guarantee it will happen again)
