Oh, to my great frustration I am, my connections to the work databases time out all the time But what does it mean here: AI is looking for possible actions, then the time out bell rings and what does it do then? Picks the best possible evaluated action that it had time to find so far? Takes the action it was looking into at the fatal moment no matter other options? Blanks out and chooses at random? And were is that "elapsed time" value? Can it be easily changed in some accessible file or is it buried somewhere in the compiled code? Do you have some "hard evidence"?
