Thread: meta commands to end a condition after a pre-specified amount of time (case 12003)

    meta commands to end a condition after a pre-specified amount of time (case 12003)

    I have a large number of stimuli listed in a DirectRT input file, but I would like the condition to change after 15 minutes. The extra stimuli are included so that the stimuli presentation can still be self-paced by the participant. I have been trying to use meta commands to accomplish this, but I cannot get it to work. Attached is the input file.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It looks like you don't have a terminator (the *) at the end of trial 1. Try putting one in and see if the file runs as intended.

    Mistake on uploaded file with met command

    Unfortunately, I uploaded the wrong thing. We have tried putting the meta command column in a number of different locations but we still cannot get it to work. The attached document has it in a row that includes a terminator. When we run this, it is supposed to stop block 1 after 6 seconds, but it just keeps cycling through all 200 stimuli.

    Thanks!

    I noticed that you have que.csv at the end of your attached file name. If this is the name of your actual file, get rid of the .que and change the name to Block1DirectRT.csv. See what that may do.
