Pygame Programmers!

How the heck are the pygame users among us planning to port your game to all platforms?

 

I’ve been trying with py2exe and py2app and having absolutely no luck; I’ve been seeing crashes everywhere. Any tips?

    I know your pain. Mine crashed unexplainably on everyone else’s computer but worked fine on mine when I first submitted. Used py2exe to compile it.

    The reason, for me, turned out to be a missing font. You need to include all non-standard ones with the download and tell your users to install them before playing. Py2exe doesn’t package them with the game, and gives a rather cryptic segmentation fault without them.
