Hello,

I am new monkey logic user and I have a question for you. I've been programming a task on ML and I would like to test it. Is it possible to do so without using analog input (from an eye tracker or a joystick), for example using a mouse input? 

I've read all of you website pages and I haven't found anything regarding this option. Also 
I've read in your touch screen thread that you are currently working on a USB adapter, does this imply that it is not possible to use an input such as a USB mouse or keyboard to simulate subject input?

Thank you!

Hi,

Good question. I'm not sure how other users test their tasks, but I would use an analog joystick. You can use any device that outputs a steady voltage and feed it into the Horizontal channel, and a separate voltage into the Vertical Channel.

The touchscreen update I've been working on also includes the option to map the signal to a mouse, so that you can test your task using the standard computer mouse. But that's not available to the general public yet.

Hey

There is a nearly hidden feature in the pause menu that activates keyboard cursors as a simulated eye movement etc.

That can be very helpful in testing!

Probably some bug in my dev version. I've reverted to the past release to see what's wrong.

'S' is definitely not working in any version! Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I can see the mouse pointer on the stimulus screen, move it around with or without the mouse button down, and the ML crosshair does not respond. I have set enabled mouse / system keys in the GUI to true.

One of the warnings is because the set_iti(0) function at the end of the sample task. If you change the iti from 0 to 500 or more milliseconds, that warning will go away. That's because the minimum possible ITI is around 1/2 a second. This is discussed else where in the forum.
