So, I made the decision to start using AS3. Turns out it
wasn't that great of an ideas because now I'm trying to meet a
deadline and figure out stupid little problems, like for an
I have a preloader that runs a movie clip. I want this movie
clip to play through regardless of whether or not the preloading
has completed. In AS2 I had a single line that said
_root.preloader_done = 1; This no longer works. I get 1120: Access
of undefined property _root.

The closest analogue is the DisplayObject.stage property.
inherits from DisplayObject (say, MovieClip) has an
property that points to what is arguably the "_root" of the
movie (there is
only one Stage object in a Flash application).
