game-related, process monitoring, pygame

Transparent map overlay for any PC game. Traces live paths on a 2d map, elevation represented by color. Drop annotated icons for areas of interest or spot them naturally from your converging paths. Mark locations as looted. Toggle layer visibility. Create a detailed map as you go; see where you've already been and find your way back. Automatically saves, and switches between maps when changing areas. Can be set to any zoom level.
