Hello:) I'm in the final stages of my experiment, but I have a problem with my instructions, they are just not shown, neither the preinstructions nor the /bgstim nor the postinstructions. Can someone please help me what I have to change in my script?

#Overall settings:
<defaults>
/fontstyle = ("Verdana", 1.8%)
/screencolor = (245,245,245)
/txbgcolor = (245,245,245)
/txcolor = (0, 0, 0)
/minimumversion = "3.0.0.0"
</defaults>

<instruct>
/nextlabel = "Weiter"
/prevlabel = "Zurück"
/nextkey = (" ")
/screencolor = (245,245,245)
/txcolor = (0, 0, 0)
/windowsize = (1200, 800)
</instruct>

Set /windowsize to something reasonable in <instruct>. E.g.

<instruct>
/nextlabel = "Weiter"
/prevlabel = "Zurück"
/nextkey = (" ")
/screencolor = (245,245,245)
/txcolor = (0, 0, 0)
/windowsize = (90%, 90%)
</instruct>

ahh, thank you so much! I can see the instructions now, the only thing that still doesn't work is the bgstim-command. I actually want it to be shown for the entire block, but I cannot see the two words at any point. I know the command can be overwritten but how do i manage do have it visible for the whole time instead of being overwritten?

(1) Anything in /bgstim is drawn to the screen exactly once at the very start of the block. If anything in your trials draws over the stimuli in /bgstim at some later point, they'll be gone.

(2) Here, too, define proper sizes.

<text A_l>
/items = ("vertrauenswürdig")
/hjustify = left
/width = 300
/height = 200

/position = (30%, 40%)
</text>

<text A_r>
/items = ("nicht vertrauenswürdig")
/hjustify = right
/width = 300
/height = 200

/position = (70%, 40%)
</text>

If you want those stimuli sized to 300 by 200 pixels, always include the unit. I.e.

<text A_l>
/items = ("vertrauenswürdig")
/hjustify = left
/size = (300px, 200px)
/position = (30%, 40%)
</text>

<text A_r>
/items = ("nicht vertrauenswürdig")
/hjustify = right
/size = (300px, 200px)
/position = (70%, 40%)
</text>

Otherwise those values will be intepreted as percentages, i.e. the stimuli will be sized much larger than your actual screen is, and you'll never see them because they're outside of the visible screen area.
