    There are some problems with Arch Linux (Manjaro) using currently python 3.3.3-1:
    In you have to replace tabs with spaces. In line 11, Tkinter has to be changed to tkinter, then it works…

    Cool, nice work.


  • @Stebs: thanks, I will test Tkinter/tkinter under Mint. Under Windows, tkinter is not allowed and gives: “ImportError: No module named tkinter”.

  • Stebs

    Found out it’s dependend on Phython Version:
    Python-2.x wants Tkinter
    Python-3.x wants tkinter

  • This is verrrrrrry helpful to understand how to write shaders

  • Very nice but no support for SLI, I tried both SLI modes even changing name of .exe but still nothing, using latest drivers and 2xGTX 480
