Please say which version of livewires you are using, the one from the
livewires site is different from the one that comes with Dawson's book.

You don't seem to do anything with this method - it is never called.

No, Animation and Message are different objects with different
interfaces. You have to look at the __init__() method of the Animation
class to see what parameters it supports.
I don't think Animation supports calling a function when it finishes,
you will have to find another way to stop the game.
