WHAT IS THE LOGIN AND PASSWORD FOR THE DANVA2 .SWF PROGRAMS?
Anything is accepted as a login, and participants may leave the age box blank.The password is always EMORYDANVA2.
HOW DO I USE THE DANVA2 FILES?
Place all 5 of the files (.swf file, write.php, dump.txt, results.xls, and time.txt) in the same web directory, link the users to danva.swf, child.swf, or nvcafam.swf. We recommend making frequent copies of the dump.txt file in a seperate directory just in case something happens to the original.
DO THE DANVA2 FILES HAVE TO BE ON A WEB SERVER TO WORK?
No - the DANVA2 programs will run, e.g., show pictures and play voices, on any computer with Flash software. However, the only way for the .swf program to work with the support files to collect data and date of task automatically is to post them on the web. YOUR INSTITUTION MUST SUPPORT .PHP FILES/SOFTWARE FOR THE PROGRAMS TO COLLECT DATA. You may opt to have participants look at the computer files and write responses on paper before clicking for the next stimulus.
HOW DO I CHANGE THE TIME?
To change the time, all you have to do is open time.text and change the number. Since flash goes at 12 frames per second (approximately), enter a number about 12 times as high as you want. The program is set at a default of about 2 seconds - if you change the time to something non-standard, you should note this in a research report or journal article.
CAN I CHANGE THE PROGRAMMING?
The one-time fee covers standard administration; you may change the time without notifying Dr. Stephen Nowicki. If you wish to change the program itself, or use the DANVA2 stimuli in another research format, please contact Dr. Nowicki for permission.
