I have recently encountered issues with getting Psychtoolbox-3 run using Matlab64-Bit. The operating system is OSX 10.10. A month earlier, I had no problems with running Psychtoolbox on the same device. Another group that uses this laptop has not experienced any issues – they use the same Matlab version and Psychtoolbox-3 for Apple OS X for their fMRI stimuli.
Here are the warnings and errors I have been receiving:
WARNING: Couldn’t compute a reliable estimate of monitor refresh interval! Trouble with VBL syncing?!? ! PTB - ERROR: SYNCHRONIZATION FAILURE ! ----
This is Psychtoolbox-3 for Apple OS X, under Matlab64-Bit (Version 30.0.12 - Build data: Oct 26 2015). Support status on this opeating system release: OSX version 10.10 is not supported or tested anymore.
Error using Screen.
If I update the operating system, will macOS Catalina 10.15.6 work? I do not want the other group using the laptop to experience any issues. I read on this forum that Catalina was not recommended for Pscyhtoobox.
I have found a different solution on the github website:
Switch resolutions within System Preferences --> Display Panel (Scaled). Select a different resolution then reselect the required/native resolution. Repeat this hack with each system restart.
What would the best solution be to get Psychtoolbox to run again?
I will provide further information if necessary. Please note I am new to forums like this one. I had nowhere else to go.
