    Cyberball 5 - App
    Dear all,
    I try to build three conditions with the Cyberball 5 - App and implement these into a Qualtrics survey (in randomized order).

    Did anyone of you have an issue with the category 'Online/Web' on the Cyberball 5-App? After I entered the condition with the customised schedule (ideal throw count is equal to throws in schedule; max. 30 throws), it refuses to publish it and deletes the settings made by me.
    Furthermore, does anyone have experience with the implementation of CB into Qualtrics? How did you this?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Increasing the size of the players in CyberBall 5
    Hello,
    I am running CyberBall 5 in conjunction with another experiment so it is important that the participants are able to clearly distinguish the players. However, for version 5 on the desktop the player is too small to tell each player apart. Is there a way to increase the size of these images?

    Thank you!

    Sorry about the delay here- I found this to be the solution too. That is, in the latest cyberball version 5.4.0.2., you have to add more throws in the "throw schedule" to reach at least the "ideal throw count".

    I actually figured out the issue. Under the customize tab, select customize schedules and throws. For each schedule you generate, there need to be more throws in the schedule than the ideal throw count. So, you need to add throws until "Throws in Schedule" is greater than the "Ideal Throw Count." When I did this, the gray box did not appear.

    This won't change the number of throws in the game - that's still set to whatever you choose (I did 30). But now it has a "library" of 38 throws to choose from.

    Hope that helps!

    I've actually had the same problem as well, but with the "exclude player 2" condition. I'd appreciate any help and suggestions as well!

    New error when running cyberball online- a light grey box with a zero appears after the last few throws
    Hi all!

    I have been using cyberball in my research recently and it has been working fine (have been running it online). However, now when I run it online (about 9 months later than the last experiment) there is a totally new problem/error happening: a box with a "0" in the middle appears at the end of the 30 throw game (3 players) in the "include all" condition. For the last 5 throws, this box with the zero appears after each throw, disappears, and then appears again after the next throw, and so this continues to happen until the game is over. This problem does not occur for the "ostracise player 2" condition. I tried to reconfigure the conditions and set-up and publish it online again, but the same thing keeps happening in the "include all" condition. I also tried adding more throws to the "include all" schedule (as there was a warning message suggesting the addition of extra throws in the configuration app, but this did not prevent the box with the zero from appearing after the last 5 or so throws either)..
    I would greatly appreciate any help and suggestions on how to solve this!
    Another peculiar thing that seems to have changed is how one customizes the welcome message/instruction. This was no problem earlier but now it will not use the text file chosen for the "welcome message" in the configuration app. That is, the welcome message stays the same..

    Anyway, hope any of you know something about these issues!
    Thanks in advance!

    Best, Cecilia
