Finally getting somewhere!

Had enough time today to get in some good work, and I think I'm finally done wrangling with pymunk to make it give me a platformer.  And I have a working time machine!  Unfortunately it only seems to work inside the game, otherwise I'd go back a few days and do some more coding.  Here's my first screenshot.  Why is that alligator wearing a top hat?  What's going to happen to that baby?  How long has it been loitering by that sign?

Oh, nice!
That looks awesome!
That's baby #1... How many babies have already been claimed?
Sweet graphics, though I'd kinda like pointier alligator teeth.
Love the artwork cant' wait to try it out..  
This makes my graphics feel so inferior
when I run the game:

Same. Also I tried moving the pymunk/ dir out of the way and using my system's pymunk, and it crashes as soon as he first touches the ground.
Segfaults, I mean.
I got a segfault when I put three babies on the bridge.

2mauve: most likely that's because your system pymunk is version 1.0.0, which requires an explicit init_pymunk() call, while version 1.1.0 bundled with this game, does not. Sadly, the game doesn't work with version 1.0.0.
Aargh.  Sorry, I don't think I'm going to be able to fix this :( 

It looks like maybe the included chipmunk dll for 64bit linux was compiled with the wrong version of chipmunk?  The only linux I have to test with is 32bit and I'm not getting the same problems.  I attempted to get it working with pymunk 1.0.0, but ran into a problem with climbing the ladder.

You might try downloading the 1.1.0 version of pymunk into the game directory, and rebuilding the chipmunk library with "python build_chipmunk" inside the pymunk source directory.

@kent_turbo: are you running 64bit linux too?
I use 32 bit version.
