Thread: Last trial not being displayed

  1. #1

    Last trial not being displayed

    Hi, I am trying to run a script and everything is working fine except that the last trial, which is a set of debrief instructions thanking participants for participating in the experiment, is not being displayed! I have tried everything but just can't work out what the problem is e.g. I've changed the style, I've put the trial numbers in order, etc... I have a similar task that runs second to this one that is working absolutely fine. Please help! I will attach the short version of the task and my styles and notepad documents. Any help would be very greatly appreciated because I am due to start testing for my experiment in the next 2 days. Thanks in advance

    The first thing that I noticed was the additional text after the input file's line terminators. It seems that after each line ended, additional information was being accessed.

    The following:
    Code:
    block,trial,!Prime,!Prime,bgr,wgr,style,stim,loc,time,stim,loc,time,*,,,,,,,,,,,,
    1,1,instructions,instructions,0,0,2,#instruct1,"0,0,1",rt:57,*,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    1,1,instructions,instructions,0,0,2,#instruct1b,"0,0,1",rt:57,*,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    2,2,practice,practice,0,0,0,~+,"0,0,1",1000,~container,".25,.5,1",0,~reservoir,".75,.5,0",500,dot,".75,.5,1",rt:57,*,,,,,,

    3,10,instructions,instructions,0,0,2,#instruct2,"0,0,1",rt:57,*,,0,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    4,12,conscious,threat(probe)-neutral,1,1,0,~+,"0,0,1",1000,~tired,".25,.5,1",0,~limit,".75,.5,0",500,dot,".25,.5,1",rt:57,*,,,,,,
    7,161,debrief,debrief,0,0,2,#debrief,"0,0,1",rt:57,*,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    .
    Turns into:
    Code:
    block,trial,!Prime,!Prime,bgr,wgr,style,stim,loc,time,stim,loc,time,*

    Thanks

    Thanks,
    It works now, but when I copy in the full version of my task, it goes back to not displaying the last trial. Do I need to change something in the whole file for my full task?
