Pygame error on Chromebooks?
VerveIsBad (0)

Hello, I'm here to ask about a possible known bug about Pygame. I'm currently programming a lot of my projects on a Dell Chromebook 2 in 1. link here: https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/dell-laptops-and-notebooks/chromebook-3100-2-in-1-education/spd/chromebook-11-3100-2-in-1-laptop

So, I have a Python project with a friend that's meant to a be a form of, "Rythm game" Not really, but we were mostly using it to practice with Pygame on Python 3 (https://replit.com/@DeBeast591/A-Rhythm-Game?v=1)
And whenever we try to compile our code, it never does. it stays on the loading screen. IS this a bug or a deliberate feature?

Dont worry, thats just a replit bug. It dosent matter on your chromebook model or type (I use a chromebook too!)

Just reload it and it should work fine.

@adityavengata That's the problem, it never does load even after reloading the page serval times.

@VerveIsBad Alright, then try forking the repl and running it on the forked repl.

@adityavengata The same problem persists, hence why I came to the conclusion it was a bug.

@VerveIsBad What happens when you try to run another completely different repl?

@adityavengata The same thing, the pygame window never opens and I'm stuck on the spinning repl sign!

@VerveIsBad Another completely different repl. Like any repl other than the pygame one.

@adityavengata It runs completely fine. (Sorry for that misunderstanding- )

@VerveIsBad Try and create a new pygame repl and copy + paste that code onto that new pygame repl. Then try running it

@VerveIsBad Thats weird. Try deleting only the replit cookie by going to chrome://settings/siteData?search=cookies and searching replit, then delete all replit cookies. Then try clearing your cache ONLY, and after try logging back in to replit. If that also dosen't work then idk what to do

@VerveIsBad After you try all of that try creating a new pygame repl and copy + pasting the code onto that repl. If that dosent work then ive run out of solutions, you need to probs contact replit support. I think I remember the same thing happening to me a few months ago with an HTML, CSS, JS repl.
