    Newbie fail - can't get image format input file to run (case 15301)

    I'm trying to run a basic pre-test that will show images in the same folder as the input file. Randomized within group, showing images, with a duration of 3 seconds.

    I've gone through and run each tutorial and read the manual. When I run the input file, I see black for about 3 seconds and then it ends.

    I realize this is probably a really simple error, but I'm stuck (and a dissertation is on the line)

    See what happens when you use 0,0,1 in each cell of the loc column. Also, make sure that your image files are .bmp format.

    style code 0

    so now it's requesting style code 0. I've not mastered styles, so I'm headed back to read up.

    Disregard my previous post. You need to add a bgr column and a style column to your original input file. You may decide not to use the between group randomization or have more than one style for all your stimuli or trials, but your input file still needs these columns. They also need to be in a particular order in your input file. See the attached file for an example. Add those columns to your input file first and see what happens.

    As far as using styles, I generally recommend avoiding using the number 0 as a style code in both the .csv input files and the styles.drt file. You can find out more about style codes in the .csv input file here-http://www.empirisoft.com/directrt/help/directrt_style.htm-and the defining styles.drt file options here: http://www.empirisoft.com/directrt/h...yle_editor.htm
