Blitz3D Docs -> 2D - A-Z -> D -> DrawBlockRect
Parameters:image = variable holding the image handle
x = x location on the screen to draw the image
y = y location on the screen to draw the image
rect_x = starting x location within the image to draw
rect_y = starting y location within the image to draw
rect_width = the height of the area to draw
rect_height = the width of the area to draw
frame = optional frame number of image to draw
Description:This command will let you draw a rectangular PORTION of an image to the designated location on the screen. The transparent/masked portions of the original image will be ignored and drawn with the image.
This is handy if you are doing something like revealing part of a screen when the player uncovers something (think QIX). You could load the 'picture' into an image, then when the player clears a rectangular region, you could paste that portion of the final image onto the playfield. If you want to draw the image portion with transparency or masking, use DrawImageRect instead.
