I am programming an experiment where each trial contains the following sequence:
Image > word-by-word sentence presentation > comprehension question
There are 4 blocks, each with 64 trials. All loaded using a txt file. All image files are located in the same experiment folder. Yet in 2 of the blocks (blocks 1 and 3) I am getting the 11041 error. Judging by the analysis file, for some reason E-prime tries to load a 65th trial (which isn't there) and crashes.
When I connect another file to the block (e.g. the file from block 2), it works fine, so I am assuming the issue is not in the block design, but in the txt file. But I double/triple checked and the file looks absolutely the same as the ones that work!
Most frustratingly, this error seems to come and go. All 4 blocks worked fine yesterday, but the day before yesterday and today I got the error again. I ran the experiment both from the server and locally, it doesn't seem to matter.
Is there something I am missing here? Has anybody had a similar problem?
