Is there a PyGame tutorial out there?

0 votes

Is there a PyGame tutorial out there? I've seen TheNewBoston's tuts, but he didn't finish his. MetalX100 did a VERY good tutorial. I've been having trouble with some player movement because he isn't moving smoothly, he jumps. If I add 5 pixels to his X position if I press a button, jumps to the next 5 pixels instead of smoothly moving. If I just add 5 pixels normally, he moves smooth.

I looked at those and they didn't cover the sprite thing I'd like :P
Also, is there a specific forum for PyGame or is here fine?
Go to and click the link "Help (irc, lists)" in the navigation menu. I could give you the direct link, but I want to point out that this stuff is readily available on the pygame website, if you would bother to look.

I was planning on making a small 2D game in Python. Are there any libraries for this? I know of:

• Pygame - As far as I know it's dead and has been for almost a year
• PyOgre - Linux and Windows only(I do have those, but I want multi-platform)
• Cocos2D - Won't install and cant find any support
• PyCap - Can't find any documentation
• Panda3D - Dead since 2011 + overkill for what I need
• PyOpenGL - Overkill

Any help on what to do with this would be appreciated. I am making games mainly in Lua but I'd like to make one in Python for fun. I also understand that Python isn't exactly the *BEST* choice programming a game, but I have heard it is possible. Tell me if it's true. Thanks!

I was looking for a good tutorial for a "HTML Parser". My intention was to extract tables from web pages or information from tables in web pages.

I tried to make a search, I got HTMLParser, BeautifulSoup, etc. HTMLParser works fine for me, but I am looking for a good tutorial to learn it nicely.

I could not use BeautifulSoup as I did not find an .exe file.

I am using Python 2.7 on Windows 7 SP1 (64 bit).

I am looking for a good tutorial for HTMLParser or any similar parser which have an .exe file for my environment and a good tutorial.

I have to write a python script which has to give CPU usage for particular process.
Ex: Lets say i have a process ABC which is running continuously for 10 hours.(Process may have 'n' number of threads.)
1st) My script should have to check the CPU usage and Memory consumption for process ABC, and also for threads of it after every 5 seconds.

2nd) Script has to take an average of CPU usage and memory consumption and it has to print final result.

i have tried using this command ,

top -bn1 | grep "Cpu(s)" | \
           sed "s/.*, *\([0-9.]*\)%* id.*/\1/" | \
           awk '{print 100 - $1"%"}'

Can anyone help in find out?
