On my time, I decided to hone my flash designing skills and work on something.
I'm a game show junkie. :) One of my favorite shows is the ever-immortal Wheel of Fortune. On a whim, I decided to make the wheel in flash, and see how well I could replicate it. And I'm pretty impressed in the end, to be honest. :)

Unfortunately I don't know a thing about actionscript, and I was going to have it so that you could spin the wheel by rotating it. But I can't do that, I haven't a clue how. :(

So instead, I made it spin by myself. I hope it's enjoyable. :aww:
OH, and be sure to put it on loop.

I remember how the wheel would spin on it's own.

Can you make this type of wheel with values for round two and above?

You know, for what it's worth, prior to Sony buying out the Merv Griffin game shows in 1995, the Wheel actually did spin itself in the opening and closing of the show. :)

Anyway... Come on! Big money! Big money!!! (hits Bankrupt) (SFX: Bankrupt slide whistle) DAMN IT!!! :explosion:

Hello from another huge Wheel fan. My guess is that the producers felt it was no longer necessary to show automation's capabilities, so the Wheel doesn't spin all by itself during opening and closing.

At one point when it did in 1989, once they forgot to stop it from spinning, so it was causing a distraction while Pat was trying to interview a contestant. Finally he shouted, "STOP SPINNING THE CAR!", and they made it stop as the audience was laughing.
