Bug found with MacOS Mojave and PyGame

by Jamie

There have been problems found sometimes with the latest MacOS (Mojave) and PyGame 1. Specifically, it’ll look black until the user interacts with the window.

The work-around seems to be to install Python 3 from the Python Software Foundation and not via Homebrew.

For more information, see:

Unfortunately, with PyGame’s focus on their v2 effort, we do not expect them to produce updated wheels when this bug is rooted out and fixes are released.
