Hi all,

In a new experiment, participants need to be able to answer with a 1 to 9 digit code. Therefore, I had opted for the openended function. However, the way it is programmed now does not work. The program only continues when it gets the exact correct response or when timeout is initiated. I want it to continue with a wrong response.

Also the program only continues with a mouse click or with the 'ctrl+end' option, but I've seen in the forum that this can't be fixed, but maybe there is a better alternative than using openended?

thanks so much in advance!!

<openended oefening>
/ trialcode = "oefening"
/position = (50, 90)
/linelength = 9
/numlines = 1
/ correctresponse = ("159")
/ responsemode = timeout (30000)
/ errormessage = (errormessage, 2000)
/ stimulustimes = [10 = oefening]
</openended>

should work. Also, are you really still using Inquisit 2? You should consider updating.
