Hi, I am trying to devise a game, and I have come to a graphical snag. I have a gif image that is a spike with a black background (to avoid confusion, here it is :).
Unfortunately, due to its nature, it has a spot in the lower-left corner that blocks another image. I think I can solve this by either taking this picture:, and rotating it, so that it would be flat at the angle I need, or I could alter the image, in java, so that each black pixel becomes transparent, which is ok, because of the game also has a black background. I would need it so that it would either only affect the area of the picture of the buffer, or it would take the image and return it as an altered image. What would be recommended to do and how can it be done?
