Opioid2D alpha 6 release

I've released the 6th alpha of Opioid2D. It's available from the Opioid2D download page and the list of changes can be viewed here.

Unfortunately I didn't have enough time for the snippets library yet, so that has to wait for alpha 7.

I'm rather happy with Opioid2D feature-wise so far, so the next couple of weeks will be spent on cleaning up and optimizing the internals before another feature push.

Thanks for the new release.

It installed with no problem on my machine (Win XP, Python 2.4.3, Had previously installed Opioid2D alpha 5)

Now, if you'd excuse me, I have to go fix all these DeprecationWarning! :)

Hi, thanks for the fantastic work you've been doing. I've been fooling with all manner of Python game libraries at different levels (pygame, pgu, etc..) trying to find something I like. Opioid2D is the first one that I can sit down and use, and the system completely makes sense to me.

Your bug tracker looks like it's fallen into disuse, so I guess I'll throw this in here: If you use Python 2.5 with your library, attempting to load an image into a Sprite will cause a segfault (pygame parachute). It only happens with an image that exists, because if you try to load an image that doesn't exist, you get a normal Python traceback telling you that it doesn't. I switched to Python 2.4 and everything works fine. Wish I could be more descriptive, but I'm no C++ hacker and the segfault error was pretty vague.

Keep up the good work. :)

Can you try if installing this fixes the problem?

Sweet. Now I just have to wait for my new charger to get in so I can try it.

Im using your O2D in XP with no problems, but I can not get it to "setup.py install" on Debian Etch

Installed: python2.4, swig, python-pygame, python-numeric, python-opengl, freeglut3, libglut3

Did run run_swig.sh(no output) and setup.py stops with lots of gcc errors in swig_dist/opioid2d_wrap.cxx

Am I missing any package?

Thank you. Please keep up O2d!!

What kind of errors do you get? Could you paste a short snippet? Also, what SWIG version are you using on Debian?
