I have been developing a 3 reel slot machine on Actionscript 3 to gain a knowledge on game development.I have done all the designing,coding but I am stuck with little bit of animation problem.
I have designed a reel which is a movieclip and it is made up of reel symbols which are also movieclips
And I have used vertical tween animation to animate the reel.
My reel consists of six symbols or movieclips.
I want to do circular reel animation like one in real ones so that there is a loop and no blank space is left at the end of animation.
When I do linear animation,problem arises with top and bottom symbols.
What to do if the first symbol comes at the middle and last of reel window as symbols above it will be left empty.
And what to do if the last symbol comes at top and middle of the reel window.
Further my reel window can accomodate only 3 symbols at a time.
And I also can't align the symbols at the centre of the bar as it happens in real slot machine.
Please help me on this,as if this is done,my whole project can be finished.
