  • Vladwasright 2014-06-10 02:19

    Gee, a forum. That'd be great.

    Pygame needs a forum! Or can you point me to a place where people discussing pygame?

    Hi Got Window 8 computer can I ask why is so hard to find a pygame installer for this system? PLEASE HELP (in easy steps thanks)

    1. Install Python 3.4.1 (32-bit).
    2. Install pygame‑1.9.2a0.win32‑py3.4.exe.

    I have installed Pygame in both python27 and python34 directories - it was not clear what pygame version was for what version of compiler.

    If I try to run the following program:

    #!/usr/bin/env python3

    import sys, pygame

    I get an error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "", line 3, in <module>
    import sys, pygame
    File "e:\python34\lib\site-packages\pygame\", line 95, in <module>
    from pygame.base import *
    ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

    Which is clearly telling me it cannot find a DLL, so do I need to set the PATH env variable in Windows? or what.

    how the heck do I get pygame on my raspberry pi. I do not know how to get the package and how to install. I need to know because I am so egad to do this.

    Guys, really, we need pygame forum....

  • Matthew 2015-01-15 02:08

    yes please! making a pygame forum would be great!!! also would like access to the accelerated graphics for 60 fps pygame science projects! And a builtin pygame font, and a builtin "pygame-midi" (to sound the same on every computer) those would be excellent as standard pygame packages!! Would also be nice to also have a kind of "run_python_code.exe" without needing and actually installation, (simply drag-n drop '' onto the single exe file) so that code can be run without even installing python+pygame!-- Oh and one more thing, how about a builtin pygame package that fully compiles any code into a sellable exe file? (say perhaps $1 per game?) Not joking, I think these would be great additions for every pygame programmer. ^_^ Matt B.

    I create a screen in pygame using:

    screen = pygame.display.set_mode((width,height))

    I then draw 200 random gray scale circles on it and save the screen as an image:, "Circles.png")

    (I need to save this screen as an image so I can compare it to a target image later on). Now, I need to randomly change different parameters of different circles by putting the numpy array that contains the circle parameters for all the circles in a loop with a big number as its iteration value. And I need to redraw the mutated circles on a screen (at the end of each iteration) and save that screen as a png image again.

    Now the problem is, every time I use pygame.display.set_mode((width,height)) it opens up the display window and it significantly slows down my program. I would like to create a screen and save it in a variable but don't need to display that screen at each iteration. I haven't been able to figure out what command to use to avoid displaying the screen. I appreciate your help.

    I have python 3.5.1 and installed the 32-bit version on my 64-bit computer because there was no option for 64-bit.

    un-install pygame...(double click the pygame installer and it should give you an un-install option) if you have installed it already,
    start a command prompt in the directory you have python installed
    type the command prompt
    pip install pygame
