Draws a surface with custom scaling, rotation, blending and alpha.


draw_surface_ext(id, x, y, xscale, yscale, rot, colour, alpha);

Argument Description
id The unique id (index) of the surface to draw.
x The x position of where to draw the surface.
y The y position of where to draw the surface.
xscale The horizontal scale.
yscale The vertical scale.
rot The rotation or angle to draw the surface.
colour The colour with which to blend the surface.
alpha The alpha transparency for drawing the surface.

Returns: N/A


This function will draw the given surface as in the function draw_surface but with additional options to change the scale, blending, rotation and alpha of the surface being drawn. Changing these values does not modify the resource in any way (only how it is drawn).

NOTE: When working with surfaces there is the possibility that they can cease to exist at any time due to them being stored in texture memory. You should ALWAYS check that a surface exists using surface_exists before referencing them directly. For further information see Surfaces.


draw_surface_ext(surf, 0, 0, 2, 2, 0, c_red, 0.5);

The above code will draw a the surface indexed in the variable "surf" at the (0,0) position in the room, with twice the original scale, blended red and semi transparent.
