Setting the time for auto move

To specify the time allowed for making a discard, you can specify a value after which the computer makes the decision for the human player. By default Four Winds does not limit the time allowed for a human to make a decision for a discard (i.e., the value is set to zero).

  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. Enter the time in milliseconds (from 0 to 60,000) in the Auto move after number box.

Note: The host of a multiplayer game can override this setting by using the Auto- move timeout option available in the Multiplayer Game Wizard.
