Sample text

USING PYGAME The first step to using Pygame is to import the Pygame library into our Python program so it can be used. import pygame The next step is to import all of the constants in Pygame so they are more readily accessible in our code. This is optional but tends to make the code cleaner. Some Python programmers dislike importing everything from a library due to efficiency concerns, but this makes our code a whole lot easier to read. init() Now that Pygame has been initialized, we have access to all of the resources of the library.

Now, drawing text is not a light process with Pygame; it’s a heavy process. Meaning, text is not just quickly drawn to the screen, it is rendered onto a surface which is then drawn to the screen. Because this is a rather timeconsuming process, it is advised to create the text surface (or image) in memory first, and then draw the text as an image. When we simply must draw text in real time, that’s okay, but if the text doesn’t change, it’s better to pre-render the text onto an image. blit(), our die-hard drawing function that will be used extensively in all of our games and demos!

If you blatantly define a variable the wrong way, it will generate an error first before running. There’s another weird thing you can do in Python to totally screw things up: using reserved words as variables. py", line 8, in print(print) TypeError: 'int' object is not callable What this error means is, print has become a variable, an integer to be exact, set to the value of 10. Then we try to call the old print() function, and Python doesn’t get it. Because the old print() function has been bypassed.
