Hey, thanks! I had no idea stage would do anything, but all of the tutorials made it target a button, so I knew something was missing. AS3 is looking quite new compared to AS2, but I personally like the class system.
stage is whatever you set it to, but defaults to Sprite(FlashDevelop) or MovieClip(Flash IDE)
set events that require focus to the stage (one of the rare use-cases for it)
AS2 uses the class system, as well. It's just that it doesn't force devs to use it like AS3 does, so 99% of AS2 coders go the AS1 route with it.
Also, compared to AS3, AS2's OOP structure sucks. There's so few classes for anything you can't really do much with it without it becoming bloated because of all the base classes.
