    I would be happy to take a look at your files to see if I can replicate and diagnose the problem. Please upload all the files to a reply on this forum thread or send them to support@empirisoft.com...

    Unfortunately, using a USB adapter would not work. Windows still obscures actual pin access when using a USB / LPT adapter. You need to use a parallel port card.

    Hello,

    DirectRT does not currently have a feature that allows for actions based on real-time calculations of responses. So DirectRT cannot be programmed to use information like the total number of...

    Bianca,

    As mentioned before, the data only gets written at the end of a MediaLab session, so there isn't any way to save responses until all of the files in the .exp file for a session are run.

    MediaLab only creates output files once the .exp file started during a MediaLab session is run to completion. It also only records data for any .que files in the .exp file if the .exp file is run...

    Can you please clarify what keyboard entry is supposed to trigger the green button? I ask because I only used your original .csv file to make the one trial file I sent you, so it's the response...

    The "flash" is a normal part of DirectRT functioning as DirectRT ends one trial row of the input file and prepares to present the subsequent trial row. You can try setting the background color of the...

    DirectRT can randomly select trials from an input file as long as the trials have the same positive nonzero integer in the wgr cell of that row of the input file. You can also select a subset of...

    I'm glad that this has been helpful. In regards to your last response, is it necessary to randomize twice? Randomization of elements two times does not make the elements "more random" after a first...

    For your file named Exp 2.cv, insert a row after trial 48 in the block (e.g., right after row 50). Use a value of 0 in the wgr cell of this new row. This will make DirectRT present only 48 trials...

    Skipping only works with the responses made in whatever single trial is currently being run in a DirectRT session. DirectRT cannot skip or jump based on the input of more than one trial and can only...

    The only important part for the input file that DirectRT runs is that it is in a comma separated value-the .csv-format.

    Exactly how do you copy and paste new rows into the file?
