Hi Sebastian,

As far as I am aware the Python 3.x series is where the development of the
language is going, The devs specifically broke backwards compatibility in
order to tidy up the language. What this means is that there are loads of
Python libraries that will not work with it or have not been ported to it.

I would recommend trying Python 2.6 along with the corresponding Pygame
release for that version. As it just works and is fairly simple to learn.


Kind Regards,

Russell Cumins
