Difference Between Unofficial And Official PyGame ?

I Was Just Checking Some Github Projects And I Found A One That Says It Needs *Unofficial* PyGame And The Site Wasn't Trusted Like Null-Byte You Can Access The Site But Google Won't Let You So My Question Is What Is The Difference Between Official And Unofficial PyGame ? I Found This Link: https://www.google.jo/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/&ved=2ahUKEwjMnLbIh5TaAhUDPVAKHVOJAZUQFjAAegQIBhAB&usg=AOvVaw360rTn3aWaaz8cfdxdPvJP

Unofficial versions of various libraries exist, and are usually remakes (or rewrites) of the original module to improvise in some way.


The files are unofficial (meaning: informal, ==> unrecognized, ==>personal, ==>unsupported, ==>no warranty, ==>no liability, ==>provided "as is") and ==> made available for "testing and evaluation purposes".


@Jax Lol PyGame Is Nice But Can't Be Compared To C++ Graphics Or C#


Congratulations for the trending question πŸ‘πŸ˜‰

1-Igor Matic noobs won't go to PyGame They Will Learn Hello World 2-PyGame Is A Library Or A Framework Not An IDE -_-


@Bomba Studio The Link Is Not From Git Site It's From Another Site That Is Not Secured


@Kru Nueng ????

@Saba Thanks :)


kridtapas Rordtook thanks a lot :)


@Rench Hey ! :)


As far as I know, there is no official version of pygame. Pygame is free and open source the latter of which makes it unofficial. Maybe in the project the developer meant that the version used wasn't the version available on the site but his own modified one. Or it simply meant that it needs an unofficial library - Pygame.


πŸ˜‚ Lol. I think this is the most popular unanswered question here. I have no idea, but I had trouble downloading the normal version of pygame.


so this means you can add suggestions and codes for more reference but they don't hold responsible for misuse and harm to your systems...


Official: Written by the _developers_, supported by the _community_. Whatever features exist come with a "guarantee"* of working under the documented conditions. Unofficial: Sometimes experimental/bleeding-edge releases. Often _forks_ by parties who are _not the developers_ to push extra support/features. This case becomes a nightmare upstream so invariably they become separate projects. Sometimes the community is unhelpful with forks. There is no guarantee of functionality from the original developers. *Usually all software is provided as-is without warrantee or guarantee of fitness for any purpose.


Unofficial is something like not happening, and official pygame would be a happening project. That's a great question, by the way!


I love projects!
