draw_surface_part( index, left, top, w, h, x, y );
|index||The index of the surface to draw.|
|left||The left position in the surface of the part to be drawn.|
|top||The top position in the surface of the part to be drawn.|
|width||The width of the part to be draw, from left.|
|height||The height of the part to be drawn, from top.|
|x||The x position of where to draw the surface.|
|y||The y position of where to draw the surface.|
With this function you can draw part of any surface at a given
position within the room. As with draw_surface you can specify a
surface, but you then need to specify the relative
coordinates within the surface of an area to select for
drawing. This means that a left position of 0 and a top position of
0 would be the top left corner of the surface and all further
coordinates should be taken from that position.
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_part(surf, 8, 8, 32, 32, x, y);
This will draw a 32x32 area 8px by 8px in from the top left of the surface indexed in "surf", at the instances (x,y) position.
