1.9.1 Packages (August 6th 2009)



Get the version of pygame for your version of python.  You may need to uninstall old versions of pygame first.
NOTE: if you had pygame 1.7.1 installed already, please uninstall it first.  Either using the uninstall feature - or remove the files: c:\python25\lib\site-packages\pygame  .  We changed the type of installer, and there will be issues if you don't uninstall pygame 1.7.1 first (and all old versions).
There are some pre release binaries for 64bit windows, and for python 2.7 at
