Well, there are there are still "frames", and there's still a
"timeline"...what Ron means is that many folks keep their ActionScript
code on a single frame, usually the first frame of the first timeline,
and their code is no longer found at various points in the animation.
Hence the code is no longer frame based and everything after frame 1
becomes virtual. This is a good thing (as anyone who once had to debug
someone else's Flash 4 movie can testify).

In its crudest form:
class SomeClass extends MovieClip
private function onEnterFrame():Void
There are code libraries out there to help you do the above (and much,
much more) in elegant and powerful ways. Personally I still prefer
Macromedia's mx.transitions.Tween and related classes (Google can tell
you more), even if they do require access to the Flash IDE.

No problem, but you should be aware that questions non-specific to
compiling in mtasc tend to get quicker answers at the flashcoders
mailing list (http://chattyfig.figleaf.com).
Good luck :)
