PyGame Exit Status 1

Hi all

I don't understand why I am getting this error.

We are trying to use this platform with students to learn pygame. The code worked yesterday but today will not.

I also got an error yesterday where the paddles moved for the first run of the program but then stopped working.

Does anyone have any input or workarounds? Or is this simply a problem with the pygame implementation at the moment?

Thanks

Shaun

Thanks all,

it is very intermittent. Same file worked a few hours later and having a similar issue on a different program.

Real shame as this is the platform I want to use for my teaching of students in 6th Form in the UK but if it is not reliable we will have to use a different approach

oh, that's a repl.it bug. What's going on is apparantly repl.it corrupted their display or something and pygame can't really connect to it.

report to bugs: https://repl.it/bugs
try forking the repl

it seems like a serial number you are requesting somewhere is not valid.

I dont actually know much, but here is my educated guess. So try doing the imports like this:

from paddle import * #the * is what changes from ball import *

I hope this works!

@JBYT27 his way works too. there's no difference. The * means everything in that file. But the only thing is the class.
