hey guys, first post here, thought I would ask something that is probably pretty obvious.
Been trying to think of an elegant way to do the following: I have a sprite with multiple frames that I don't want to change until the user presses a button. Once the last frame in a cycle is up and the button is pressed again, I want the frame animation to reset to zero (basically, it's a character creation panel, so user dictates frame change).
At the moment it stops at the last frame and doesn't cycle. I thought maybe changing the animation to a loop would bump it back to zero, but nope.
So obviously it's easy to use set frame to go to the next frame when the button's pressed, and I was able to use a variable which counted the frames and reset it once it hit a certain number. Problem is, I want it set up so that I can change the number of frames in an animation without having to change individual variables, and have it still work.
I tried comparing self.frameAnimation with self.frameAnimation +1 and resetting frame to zero if they were equal, but it didn't work for me. I guess it's comparing it to a number that doesn't exist in the cycle... realise my mistake there now as I typed it.
I am really tired right now (had an early morning flight to catch), so I'm beginning to think I might be overlooking the obvious.
Would love to hear what best solution to this would be. Something to look forward to in the morning
