    I learned to program a long time ago, I started with Assembler and C; now that I would like to do something concrete, so I chose preferably an oop language specifically Python. It is very simple but that does not mean that I can do everything, I must wait until I have mastered python properly before creating an application.
    I found this project “Chess game in Python with source code” and I have the idea to surprise my friends by inviting them to play online through a private room; my friends are scattered all over the world; they are old classmates with them I was playing chess. To get there it looks like I have to configure a socket and a database.
    I’m the type of person who never gives up and loves to learn new things.
    Please if you understand my doubts and concern; could you tell me how to get there?
    In summary I would like to modify the code and configure servers and clients to play online with friends and relatives.
    could you help me ?

    Take great care against Covid-19
    I thank you in advance.

    1. for this error: “(pygame.error:couldn’t open media\board.png)” I just changed the directory to: background = pygame.image.load(‘Media/board.png’).convert() for all of the references…

    2. For the float error I just changed it to reflect and int : pieces_image = pygame.transform.scale(pieces_image,

    However now I am getting a new error: File “/home/bigbaer/Documents/PygameChess1/ChessGame_PYTHON/Chess/”, line 1354
    circle_image_green = pygame.transform.scale(circle_image_green,
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax

    any suggestions?
