do this for each frame:
stop();
// set a value for the delay
time = 500;
// need to give the delay an ID so we can clear it later
delay = setInterval(proceed, time);
function proceed() {
      // clear the interval
      clearInterval(delay);
      // go next frame - or whatever you want to happen here
      gotoAndPlay(_currentframe+1); // or any skip to frame method
}
hope that helps!
