This bug has been fixed in E-Prime 1.2.
In experiments where there is an extended input and no correct answer (i.e. go-no go or omission is correct), the RteRunnableInputObject in question will not have the proper scoring properties set when the InputMask times out. The result is a trial where the user does not respond (as intended), but the RteRunnableInputObject ACC/RT/RTTime properties not as expected.
Update to E-Prime 1.2 or later.
This workaround is intended only for those who are unable to update to the version of E-Prime that contains the bug fix:
Place the following script in an InLine right after the Stimulus object (replace Stimulus with the name of the object in question):
'If the user did not respond
If Len(Stimulus.Resp) = 0 Then
Dim nMask As Long
Dim theInputMask As InputMask
For nMask = 1 To Stimulus.InputMasks.Count
Set theInputMask = Stimulus.InputMasks(nMask)
If theInputMask.Acc <>l 0 Then
Stimulus.Acc = theInputMask.Acc
Stimulus.Rt = theInputMask.Rt
Stimulus.RtTime = theInputMask.RtTime
