Using auto acceleration

Enabling auto acceleration makes Four Winds automatically pass discards you possibly cannot claim. This is useful when learning the game, since the program stops to wait for user response whenever you have possibility to claim a discarded tile. The waiting time is determined by the Discard delay setting. To control the time an "impossible" discard stays visible in the discard slot, change the settings for Fade Out animation effect.

To enable or disable automatic acceleration:

  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose Gameplay under the User Interface section in the category tree of the Preferences dialog box.
  3. Check or clear the Auto acceleration box.

Note: Four Winds does not automatically pass the discard in case there is a competitive claim, even if another player has precedence over the discarded tile. This is to guarantee compatibility with multi-player game (where other players' decisions are not immediately available), and to notify you of the possibility of claiming.

Tip: You can accelerate the pace of the game also manually.
