Other libraries than Pygame?


#1

Please excuse my silly question, maybe,
I don’t have an ETC (yet), but considering one,
I have very basic programming experience with Python.

I have understood that ETC uses Python’s library Pygame.
Is it possible to use any other library, especially libraries for image manipulation?

Thank you and kind regards

of course you can use other modules. Simply use
import $LIBRARYNAME

Many modes do so as you need libs like math, time, random, …

But be warned: all ,odules and all the content like handled images are loaded at the start. This will fill your available RAM quite soon. Also the ETC processors is not the fastest one and the code in the modes is called 30 times per second. So extensive image manipulation will assumingly slow down the ETC quite soon.
