Hello im new to gamedev.net , i have been trying to learn how to program , using python, im following the Bucky tutorials on youtube.
He didnt go very far with the pygame tutorials, and what im trying to figure out is how to get a shape that u draw on the screen using the rect or draw methods. and be able to use it as an object to move it around on the screen. I understand how to call a png file to use in this way, but not using a shape that i have drawn. Second question, is there a way to know exactly where im placing shapes/lines when i make them? im basically plugging in random numbers for my parameters to draw my shapes. this is the code for which im working with at the moment. import pygame, sys from pygame.locals import * pygame.init() screen=pygame.display.set_mode((640,360),0,32) color=(230,170,0) position=(300,176) radius=(60) while True: for event in pygame.event.get(): if event.type == QUIT: pygame.quit() sys.exit() screen.lock() pygame.draw.circle(screen,color, position,radius) screen.unlock() pygame.display.update()
