Hi Chris,

I am loading loads of files and they need to be in a specific order. Is there a way to display the name of the file being played in the console?

    Hi Beshoy,

    No, not in general. However, stimulus names are included in the event file in #stimDisplayUpdate events.

    That said, there might be a way to do it. A few questions:

    1. What type of stimulus are you using?
    2. How are you loading the stimuli (e.g. are you using a range replicator)?
    3. Are you queuing/dequeuing each stimulus by tag, or are you indexing in to a stimulus group?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the reply. I am using movie files (.mp4) and loading them via several range replicators in a stimulus group to use the index. I managed to access it later on from the stim events but i was wondering if there is something online.

    It's not that important really, I was just wondering if there is something that i missed.
