Re: Programming a 2D game. Software suggestions anyone?

Well, I do have some bad news if you want to program your game in pyGame to run on python3. I was working on an RPG typestyle and since pygames doesn't use SDL 2 it really only uses one core and only SDL v1. I got as far as adding background tiles(animated) and it was unplayable. https://www.instagr...

I know it's possible to stream to Facebook live, Youtube live and Twitch but to set these services up it's kind of time consuming. Is there anyway to make this process a little easier. maybe even have it on the Raspberry Store.

Would you happen to give any info on how you are mining without any USB device? I have a lot of Pi's setting around wanted them to be doing something, rather than just setting in a box. And yes, I don't care about spending money on my electric bill. :)

Thanks,
