Hi!
I have a script that runs fine on my desktop version of Inquisit, but doesn't correctly display certain stimuli on Inquisit web. Specifically, in the task, participant should see each of 64 screens for a few seconds in an initial block of trials. All of the screens are correctly displayed on the desktop version of Inquisit, but some are not displayed on the web version. I've linked to a zipped folder with the inquisit file and stimuli. I appreciate any ideas you have. As is usually the case, I imagine I've just missed something simple that more expert eyes will see right away!

The way you've coded the script, you assign images to empty <item> elements at runtime per a bunch of <counter> elements. That's not a problem on your computer, where all the files are already present on your disk. It is a problem on the web, because Inquisit can't know what image files it has to download.

Add a <picture> element to the script that has *all* the image files as its items. I.e.

<picture preload>
/ items = (
"Profile_Accept1.png",
"Profile_Accept2.png",
"Profile_Accept3.png",
"Profile_Accept4.png",
"Profile_Accept5.png",

</picture>

The presence of that <picture> element will cause Inquisit to download all the image files to the client system prior to starting the experiment.

Sorry Dave, but one followup. Is it enough to simply add this element to the script or do I have to specify that this element be run before any other blocks/trial in the script? Thanks again!

It's enough to simply add it to the script. The <picture> element need not be actually used anywhere during the procedure.

The presence of that <picture> element will cause Inquisit to download all the image files to the client system prior to starting the experiment.

Sorry Dave, but one followup. Is it enough to simply add this element to the script or do I have to specify that this element be run before any other blocks/trial in the script? Thanks again!

It's enough to simply add it to the script. The <picture> element need not be actually used anywhere during the procedure.

Hi!
I have a script that runs fine on my desktop version of Inquisit, but doesn't correctly display certain stimuli on Inquisit web. Specifically, in the task, participant should see each of 64 screens for a few seconds in an initial block of trials. All of the screens are correctly displayed on the desktop version of Inquisit, but some are not displayed on the web version. I've linked to a zipped folder with the inquisit file and stimuli. I appreciate any ideas you have. As is usually the case, I imagine I've just missed something simple that more expert eyes will see right away!

The way you've coded the script, you assign images to empty <item> elements at runtime per a bunch of <counter> elements. That's not a problem on your computer, where all the files are already present on your disk. It is a problem on the web, because Inquisit can't know what image files it has to download.

Add a <picture> element to the script that has *all* the image files as its items. I.e.

<picture preload>
/ items = (
"Profile_Accept1.png",

It's enough to simply add it to the script. The <picture> element need not be actually used anywhere during the procedure.

In this initial block, each of 64 picture/profile combinations is supposed to be presented for 1000 ms. This is what happens when i run the script using Inquisit lab.

Sorry to bother with this. It seems to have been a problem with the batch script rather than this script. I made some changes to the batch and now everything is working properly. Thank you again for your help!
