    How to change the Default Instruction
    Dear all,
    I was wondering if anyone could let me know how to modify the initial instructions that come with cyberball. In my paradigm, the subject does not play but it is an spectator, so I need to change the instructions accordingly. I can't find it anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Thank you so much!
    Best,

    Interpretation of LogFile - Cyberball 5 (App)
    Dear all,
    After successfully embedding CB into Qualtrics I tried to analyse the LogFile which was delivered by the Cyberball 5 Web App.
    Unfortunately, I realised that apparently not every subject was recorded, resp. found its way to the Log-File. Did anyone else a similar problem? Furthermore, what does it mean when it says "Partial Game Data"?

    Thanks to any kind of answer.

    Cyberball with Qualtrics
    I am trying to publish my .cbe file so I can used Cyberball with qualtrics, but I keep getting an error code "The .cbe file you tried to publish does not have the required custom schedules." As far as I can tell, the schedules have been created and saved. Can anyone add some insight here?

    "Save as" doesn't create a new experiment
    I am using Cyberball 5 and want to be able to change the name and picture for every participant, thereby giving them each their own URL.
    Since I am only changing the name and photo and want everything else to remain the same, I created a main configuration (experiment) and then tried to 'save as' to create individual experiments, each with the name and photo updated and with different URLs. The problem is that even though I saved each new configuration under a different name, Cyberball doesn't produce a new CBE ID or URLs each time. Therefore the changes I make keep writing over the past changes and so I am left with many cbe files which all end up with the same URL and therefore with the picture of the last participant I uploaded.
    The only way I have found to overcome the problem is to create a new configuration each time which is very time consuming. Has anyone else experienced this problem? How do you personalise the cyberball for participants in a quick and easy manner? Thanks!

    no players or ball
    Hello everyone,

    I downloaded the whole pack and did not manage to get the experiment working properly. Even before modifying the script, I encounter that there's no ball or players. Has anyone dealt with this before?

    Thanks!

    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!

    New error when running cyberball online- a light grey box with a zero appears after the last few throws
    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".
