Thread: Difficulties in running Cyberball within MediaLab

    Difficulties in running Cyberball within MediaLab

    I am trying to run Cyberball From MediaLab. I followed procedures.
    I created a text file in the main Cyberball folder called medialab.txt, containing the line, "C:\MediaLab". And, in the MediaLab questionnaire, I chose an Executable? item type and entered the location of CyberBall.exe on the computer in the File field, "CyberBall\CyberBall.exe" Finally, in the Parameters field, I entered "c3pl_11.txt". 3pl_11.txt is the setting file that I made.
    However, Cyberball was not launched from MediaLab. Instead, only messages like this "Click the continue button to proceed" has been shown.
    I am attaching the questionnaire file. Would you review the file what problems are?

    An important thing to remember when working with the executeable item type is that only the 'Command-Line' parameter is available for that item.
    The following page identifies each item-type with its compatible parameters: http://www.empirisoft.com/medialab/h...parameters.htm

    The easiest way to get the output you want is to either locate the .EXE in the same file that the .que is in, or use a hard-coded path that goes all the way back to your root drive.
    If the file is in the same folder as your .que file, you can do something such as: files\cyberball.exe
    Whereas if you use a hardcoded path, it may look like: C:\MediaLab\New Experiment1\files\cyberball.exe
