wxPython and PyGame - do they play well together?

Hello All,

I am having a great time with python and pygame, and last night I took
a long look at the wxPython demo. I think that rocks as well.

So now, my question is do wxPython and PyGame work together?

How is the windows event loop managed? How is the display window
managed?

Is it possible to have some sort of master/slave relationship between
the two?

Is it possible that either could be dominant?

Does this sound too weird?

I appreciate any fingers pointing in any directions...

Thank you,
-Erik

I have no personal experience, but based on posts to the Pygame mailing
list, also accessible via Google or as newsgroup thru Gmane (where I read
it), the answer is yes. The subject of Pygame with guis has been discussed
in the past couple of months. I recommend that you read the archives for
the recent past and then join the list or subscribe via gmane or google.
It is a low volume, low noise, list.

After a touch more of exploration... actually from the wxPython demo's
startup tips lead me over to the wxPython Wiki....

Here I found this gem:

http://wiki.wxpython.org./index.cgi/IntegratingPyGame

Awesome. There is in fact some very tricky timing of the import
statement for pygame

I am having this problem: I use Python for my teaching and right now we are trying to implement some sort of very simple graphical game the pupils can play across the Internet. For this, we use wxPython. Now it has turned out that wxPython does not implement wxWidget sockets, so we have to use Python sockets instead. Implementing a separate thread for this would be too complicated and I am going to use the wxIdle event to do the socket...

I'm somewhat new to Python but not to programming. I just want to know if it's possible to have a SINGLE wxPython frame containing two sections where one will contain widgets and the other will host an animation done using PyGame. More specifically, I want to have a list of names of animations on the left and depending on what is selected, run the PyGame animation in the main area.

Hi, I am trying to make a game using either livewires or pygame. The game is tetris. Right now I have gotten the program to a point where everything works (as in user input, score, lines, etc), except I can't get more than one block to work. Right now I have the user playing a game where a single block falls at a time instead of one of the seven different patterns. I was curious how you would program the seperate images to fall together...

Ok, I've been going through these tutorials for both PyGame and wxPython, but I've hit a big speed bump. In each tutorial, I've gotten to the point where I need to "import" or "load" images for various purposes (animation, icons, etc.). Each time I follow the tutorial, I can't quite get it right... please don't tell me "Hey, you can't use the pictures in the tutorial example because those are not the directories, paths, or pics that are on your ...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
