As I said in my earlier post, this is sort of a kludge to bypass MudOS
deficiencies. MudOS can not resolve something down to less than a second.
Now if I had my way, I'd like a swing to be swung as soon as it could
be; unfortunately, I have to deal with MudOS's low points and I have to do
it in a round-by-round system. Although I do think there may be a way I can
get around it, but it may be very CPU intensive with lots of players. I'm not
sure yet. I don't know why rounds are confusing to you, they are pretty
simple to me. And idle time?? Now you're starting to confuse me. =)
