pygame is
Simple DirectMedia Layer is
Site Swing - 1.0

Andy Sommerville (aksommerville)



I got tired of trying to control my sprites' relative layers with an OrderedUpdates, so I wrote this alternative. It works just like Ordered- or Render- Updates, but each sprite must have a "layer" attribute. That's an integer describing its position relative to other sprites. Lowest is drawn first. Where two sprites have the same layer, the one whose bottom is highest is drawn first.

I hadn't heard.... If these are being included in the official release, I'd go ahead and stop using anyway.

In pygame 1.8 there are comming also layered updates, with the same name I think. ( seen on the pygame mailing list, also at )
Name clashes ?
