Hi all,

I've recently begun a project as an RA and have found that we need test which are coded for Inquisit 5 when we only have license for Inquisit 4. I've read some of the previous post and it mentions you are able to change the code yourself to allow use on Inquisit 4. I was wondering if there is an explanation post or instructional video anywhere of all the specific parts I must change as well as what program this is best done on. I also have found one of the paradigms we require is not on Inquisit and the generally consensus I can find on the internet is that I must code it myself and upload it to Inquisit, is there any particular coding language I should use or, once again, any resources I can lean upon for information. Apologies, this is my first time using Inquisit so this is all very foreign to me. Thanks
Dave

There are no videos. There are posts here that mention the most common things you need to change and it seems you've already seen those. As for the language you need to learn, it's Inquisit syntax: https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v4/html/tutorials/tutorials.htm

Thanks Dave, appreciate the help! In the second link it tells me all language I need for Inquisit 4, is there anywhere that tells me which language specifically in Inquisit 5 which I have to change or is it more I run it until there are no more errors type situation? Thanks, Daniel

Open the script in Inquisit 4 and parse it. Then work through the errors one by one.

The below threads give the most common things you should look out for:

Note that for some things (e.g. /animation), there are no Inquisit 4 equivalents, i.e. it is simply not possible to "downgrade" certain scripts.
