I'm making a black jack game and was wondering if you can help me out alittle. I'm trying to think of an easy way to show the cards. I was going to have all the cards not visible until the random number called it. But the problem with this appraoch, is I will have to have 52 invisible cards for every card dealt... this might mean having 14 invisible decks! I'm used to programming in Visual Basic where you can set the variable of the card...ie AceHearts = 1, TwoHearts = 2, ect. You can do this also in flash, but if the random number was 1, then what do I set? Do I call the target? and if so...where? Do I set up say 6 or 7 card templates and if the number was 1, call the Acehearts to template 1? Any advice would be appreciated
Your problem can be easily solved by using Duplicate Movie Clip. You'll find in Action Clip list. Pay attention to the "depth" of your duplicated movie clip when you are using it.
You could figure it out!
