first a short explanation. I plan to use an image that shows a simple
map, i.e. a google map, or a map from a dungeon or similar. The virtual
hero group (the players) can only see a limited area, either because the
map is so large, or because it is dark inside a cave etc…
For this to simulate, I would like to select a small circle of the map.
Upon keyevents (this part is easy) the circle moves.
So far so good, but I was looking at
I am not entirely sure, is there a way to select circular areas?
copy_area for example speaks only about "Copies a rectangular area from
source pixbuf(self) to dest_pixbuf. " but I would need a circular area.
If anyone has an idea , I would be glad to hear about it!
