Pygame examples

Hi can someone send me a link to a simple Pygame built in Replit (that works). Every game I have tried to look at just gives me “the spinning wheel” forever…they seem not to want to run.
Many thanks in advance :slight_smile:

They all seem to work for me. The spinning wheel might be an issue with the connection. Try reloading the page to see if that helps

Hi Alex do the following links work for you?

Thanks for your help

Yes, both of them work. If they don’t work for you, you can try creating a blank Pygram repl, and running the prebuilt examples there. Hopefully those should work

Am I doing something wrong? I just copied and pasted the first link and nothing is happening.
It DOES work if I copy and paste the code into my own pygame replit, but when I am marking students work, will I have to cut and paste code?

I’m also finding it taking forever to load, but I forked it and it worked fine. I think this could be a bug with Pygame repls. I’ll try again tomorrow to see if this is a recurring issue, or just a temporary connection problem

Hi @JWatWSS I clicked on the link and from the cover page I couldn’t get anything to display (but I think that was because it is meant to just display a white page and display messages in the console window), so I forked the Repl and ran it without issues.

You should not have to copy and paste code to get this working. I think that this query, linked to your Python Turtle query, suggests there may be something wrong / glitchy with your connection to the Replit site.
