We have been unable to get our skier program to work. We have gone through the program twice and corrected the errors. We also saw on the "errata" page the comment on the double underscore before and after the __init__ code so we fixed that in four places. Now we have new errors. I have pasted them in below. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you. Stacy Hill. P.S.--My son is enjoying learning to program. Thanks for writing your book.

Traceback (most recent call last):

Re: skier program
Glad your son is enjoying the book!

It looks like in line 33 you have:

pygame.sprite.Sprite__init__(self)

It should be

pygame.sprite.Sprite.__init__(self)

(There's a dot after "Sprite", before "__init__")

Once you fix this, if you have other errors, check very carefully for typos and especially indenting. If you're really stuck, post another message here, and we'll be happy to help.

Thank you for the quick response. The program is working now after we fixed four more "_" and "." errors!
