Hi, myself and two of my friends are creating a game that imitates that of Whack-a-mole. I am trying to implement code so that when I click on the mole with the mouse, the image changes to a different image, eg. the image when just moving the mouse is a mallet, and Im trying to change that when the mousebutton is clicked, the image will change to a different one, eg. mallet facing downwards as if it is hitting the mole and then revert back to the first image.

Here is mallet class and the code that's done so far:

class MalletUp(pygame.sprite.Sprite):
    def __init__ (self, (posX, posY)):
        pygame.sprite.Sprite.__init__(self)
        self.image = pygame.image.load("../src/images/malletup.jpg")
        self.rect = self.image.get_rect()
        transColor = self.image.get_at((1,1))
        self.image.set_colorkey(transColor)
        self.x = posX
        self.y = posY
        self.rect.center = (self.x, self.y)
        
        ' States for mouse click down or up '
        self.noClick = 0
        self.mouseRelease = 1
        self.mouseClick = 2
        self.mouseCounter = 3

    def update(self):
        self.x, self.y = pygame.mouse.get_pos()
        self.rect.center = (self.x, self.y)
        ''' keys = pygame.key.get_pressed()
        if keys[pygame.MOUSEBUTTONUP]:
        self.noClick = self.mouseRelease '''
        
        gameRunning = True
        while gameRunning == True:
        #while stay_in_loop == True:
            for event in pygame.event.get():     
                if event.type == pygame.MOUSEBUTTONDOWN:
                    self.noClick = self.mouseClick
                    self.image = pygame.image.load("../src/images/malletdown.png")
                    print "mouse pos:", pygame.mouse.get_pos()

Here is the mallet class being updated in the main code:

backgroundSprite.update(screen)        
        malletSprites.clear(screen, background)        
            
        ' Update mallet to the screen '
        malletSprites.update()
        backgroundSprite.draw(screen)
    
        ' Draw the mallet to the screen '
        malletSprites.draw(screen)
        pygame.display.flip()

We cant really do much more until we get this part working so would appreciate any help given.

Thanks

-Edit- If anyone wants to see my main code class I can post all of the code.

You can simplify out parts which are not essential to demonstrate and you should post code which is runnable to see what problem you have, especially when you are not giving any error messages and exact problems.

At least I do not see how the indentation of the second piece of code would work.

The second part of code is just a small section of my main code. Here is the whole lot of my main class:

import pygame, random, malletUp

screen = pygame.display.set_mode((1000, 700))

class Background(pygame.sprite.Sprite):
    def __init__(self):
        pygame.sprite.Sprite.__init__(self)
        self.image = pygame.image.load("../src/images/background.png")
        self.rect = self.image.get_rect()
                
def game():
    pygame.display.set_caption("Example of mallet up and down")
   
    background = pygame.Surface(screen.get_size())
    background.fill((0, 0, 0))
    screen.blit(background, (0, 0))
    
    ' Mallet Up and Down '
    mallet_up = malletUp.MalletUp((320, 100))
    
    background1 = Background()
    
    backgroundSprite = pygame.sprite.Group(background1)
    
    ' Sprite Groups '
    malletSprites = pygame.sprite.Group(mallet_up)
       
    clock = pygame.time.Clock()
    keepGoing = True
    while keepGoing:
        clock.tick(100)
        pygame.mouse.set_visible(False)
        for event in pygame.event.get():
            
            if event.type == pygame.QUIT:
                keepGoing = False
                
        backgroundSprite.update(screen)        
        malletSprites.clear(screen, background)        
            
        ' Update mallet to the screen '
        malletSprites.update()
        backgroundSprite.draw(screen)
    
        ' Draw the mallet to the screen '
        malletSprites.draw(screen)
        pygame.display.flip()
        
    pygame.mouse.set_visible(True)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    game()

And here is the mallet class, Im nearly 100% sure that its something got to do with the update function because its printing out the mouse position but not changing the image:

        self.rect = self.image.get_rect()
        transColor = self.image.get_at((1,1))
        self.image.set_colorkey(transColor)
        self.x = posX
        self.y = posY

    def update(self):                                
                                
        self.x, self.y = pygame.mouse.get_pos()
        self.rect.center = (self.x, self.y)   
   
            gameRunning = True
            while gameRunning == True:
                for event in pygame.event.get():     
                    if event.type == pygame.MOUSEBUTTONDOWN:
                        self.image = pygame.image.load("../src/images/malletdown.png")
                        print "mouse pos:", pygame.mouse.get_pos()

I get only black window, even after putting few jpg:s to the directory of program and mouse cordinates printed in console.

Ok. Do you have any idea how I could implement it so that when I click an image will change? Maybe using a counter or something..
