Hi everyone,

I once asked this question in the Inquisit 6 forum, but I am asking again because I had to make it in Inquisit 5, which our lab computer has.

I'm working on a project involving the Balloon Analogue Risk Task (BART), and I need some help with editing the code. The original task involves a red balloon that participants inflate to earn money, risking it popping. In my version, I want to introduce a twist: the balloon's color should change randomly at the start of each of the 30 trials.

I have six different balloon images and have figured out how to integrate them into the code. However, my current challenge is that the balloon's type changes with every press of the "pump up" button. I need the balloon's type (color) to remain constant throughout a single trial and only change when a new trial begins.

Could anyone guide me on how to modify the code to achieve this? I have attached the code file for reference.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your reply.
I tried so, but I consistently get these errors:



I think this is a code language difference between inquisit 5 and 6, maybe?

You need to lose the inline comments. Inquisit 5 doesn't allow for inline comments.

The scalingFactor value isn't in and doesn't apply to the Inquisit 5 BART script. You shouldn't simply copy and paste things, you should try to understand how and why the solution I explained to you works when you asked the question for the 1st time and then apply that to the Inquisit 5 script

Awesome! It works now. Thank you so much for helping me multiple times Dave!

Hope you have a great evening :)
