Hi Chris,

I'm using an arduino (firmata) command to trigger a solenoid reward system (digital 1 for reward, 0 no reward). Is there a way to remap the 'Reward Window' such that I can trigger this variable? I'd like to use the software to be able to manually trigger a reward if I like.

    Hi Travis,

    I've attached an example that demonstrates how to make the reward window work with a Firmata-based reward system. Be sure to set the variable name in the reward window to "reward".

    Sorry in advance for this stupid question, but what in the world is an mwel format? I tried opening it in editor and client with no luck. I just searched your knowledge think and it doesn't say, and in the discussion it seems to be a format that someone asked if there was an xml -> mwel converter.

    Hi Travis,

    MWEL is an alternative to XML-based experiments, available as of MWorks 0.8. You view and edit MWEL files in a text editor (TextEdit, BBEdit, vi, emacs, etc.), not in MWEditor.

    For more information, see the user manual.
