E-Prime Extensions for Tobii 2.0
A patch is available for licensed users of E-Prime Extensions for Tobii (EET) version 18.104.22.168 who are working with a Tobii X3-series eye tracker. This patch enables users to perform calibration of the X3 eye tracker from within their E-Prime experiment. Without the patch, calibration cannot be performed within the E-Prime experiment and instead must be done in Tobii Studio prior to the start of the experiment.
NOTE: E-Prime Extensions for Tobii 22.214.171.124 must be installed prior to installing the patch.
