Use the Options Menu to adjust for the different options and program preferences.
Easing of Movements:
An option for enabling an easing effect on visual stimuli is included under the Options menu. The easing effect reduces the speed of the visual stimulus prior to reaching the edge of the display area. The objective of the easing effect is to create a more organic looking set of movements.
To enable the Easing Effect of visual movements: .
- Click on the Options menu item.
- Click on the line that says: Enable Easing of Movements.
If there is a checkmark beside the line, then Easing is enabled.
To disable Easing of Movements just select the option again. If there is no checkmark beside Easing of Movements, Easing is disabled.
Note: Easing has no effect on ellipse or infinity direction patterns.
Visual with no movement:
Selecting this option will display the visual stimuli without moving the stimuli across the screen. With this option selected, the visual stimuli will remain stationary for the time value selected in the speed control, and then will display at the next location. This feature may be preferred by individuals that find it difficult to visually track with a moving object.
Disable Audio Fading:
Selecting this option will disable custom audio fading. When this option is selected the audio will play fully on the left audio channel then play fully on the right audio channel. The audio will not fade gradually from left-to-right. When this option is not selected then the audio will fade gradually back and forth. Selecting this option has no effect when using built-in sounds.
Selecting this option will prevent the output window from entering into full screen mode once object movement starts. When this option is selected, the output window will remain at it's current size when movement is started. Once movement has started within the Output window you can not adjust the size of the output window.
Full Screen Mode:
Selecting this option will set the display to full screen mode. Selecting this option will prevent the Controls from appearing after stopping movement. Using this option may be helpful in situations where a dual-screen setup is not being used. The output/processing window will remain in full screen after the object has stopped moving. If the Full Screen Mode is not selected, the Controls window/screen will appear after processing has completed. To exit from the Full Screen Mode, you can:
- Deselect 'Full Screen Mode' within the Options Menu, or
- Hold down the SHIFT key and then press the SPACE key (Shift+Space).
-- Select a desired shape from the dropdown menu. In addition to the 5 pre-defined shapes , there are over 400 PNG images included with 'Go With That' courtesy of Open Icon Library:
Select the 'Load Custom Image' line from the dropdown list to use a custom image.
In addition to the 5 standard shapes and the hundreds of Open Icon Library of visual stimuli/objects, you may also use any PNG, GIF (non-animated), JPG, or BMP file for display as visual stimuli. PC users must selct the file type from the dropdown list in the 'open file' dialog.
Use the 'Size' scrollbar to adjust the size of the visual stimuli.
You can adjust the size of the visual stimuli while the image is moving by using the slider control or the shortcut Keys : Press the E key to enlarge an object or image.
Press the D key to decrease the size of the object or image.
Hint: You may find this useful in situations where an individual has lost attention or focus on the visual stimuli.
Use the 'Speed' scrollbar to adjust the speed of the visual & auditory stimuli.
Speed is measured in miliseconds. The larger the number the slower the speed.
Speed can be adjusted at any time by using the slider control or the Short-Cut Keys: Press and hold down the 'F' key to make the the stimuli go faster. Press and hold down the 'S' key to slow down the speed of the stimuli.
'Go With That' includes over 200 sounds for auditory stimulation. To use one of the included sound effects, click on the button labeled " Select Built-In Sound"
Clicking on a sound effect in the list will preview the sound. Use the 'Add to Favorites' feature to store you favorite sounds in the favorites list.
'Go With That' is capable of playing most types of audio files. When this feature is selected, your audio file will loop continuously and will fade left and right, independently or with visual stimuli. In order to use this feature you must have Apple QuickTime installed on your computer. QuickTime is an integral component of the Mac OSX operating system and should already be installed. QuickTime is NOT a standard program in Microsoft Windows. Windows users must install Apple QuickTime in order to use custom sounds. If you do not have QuickTime installed on your computer you can download from Apple's website:
'Go With That' will play any audio file type that is capable of being played within QuickTime. In short, if your file plays in iTunes, it should work in GoWithThat. Standard audio file types that should play without any problems are; wav, ai, aiff, & mp3.
In order to use a custom audio file:
-Click on the button labeled "Select Custom Sound" to load your custom audio file into GoWithThat.
Go With That has been designed for use in a DUAL display environment. This means that you can place the "Processing" window on your secondary display and control the processing from your primary display.
An excellent way to use Go With That is by attaching a projector to your computer's secondary video port and project the processing window on to a screen or wall.
Additionally, you could drag the Processing window to display on an external monitor or TV (Figure 2).
Most laptops and many desktop computers are equipped with an external monitor port. Plug your secondary display into your computer's second video port and configure your computer's display settings appropriately. You will need to set your computer's display settings to Extended Desktop mode.
For more detailed instructions on configuring your computer to use multiple displays see the following links below:
Mac OS X
This control is for adjusting the jitter or jumpiness of movement on your screen. The Jitter control is most useful when connecting to an external monitor, TV, or projector. To use the Jitter Control, click start and adjust the jitter control while the image is moving. Move the slider control to the left or right to achieve smoother looking movement. In general, a Jitter setting between 0 and 10 will achieve the best results. Some older projectors or monitors may require a higher Jitter setting.
Not every screen, TV, monitor, or projector is the same. Each screen has a specification called a refresh rate. The refresh rate determines how many times per second the screen re-draws itself or refreshes. In addition to the Jitter Control, you may also improve smoothness of visual stimuli by adjusting the refresh rate for your display (or secondary display). Please view your operating system's help for instructions on adjusting the refresh rate of your computer's screen. For additional information you can click on the appropriate link below.
