Pandorabots - build in delay?

Just wondered if there were any aiml tricks so that a delay could be built in so that the bot doesn’t answer straightaway?  I’m building a roulette game and it would be desirable to have a bit of delay before the winning roulette number is shown rather than it being displayed instantly.  Thanks.

No sorry. You would have to do this client side.

You could prompt the user like below but it would soon become annoying after a while.

Human: I’ll bet on red 32
Bot: *spinning wheel* say “stop” to stop the wheel
Human: Stop
Bot: Unlucky, it came up black 3

Ahh, that could work but instead of ‘say stop’ I’ll do something like ‘hit any key to stop wheel’ and use _ wildcard within a topic.  I have a spinning roulette wheel graphic and it would work well with that.  Cheers.

That’s a good idea. The user may believe that there is some skill in him hitting the key at the right time to stop the wheel on the right number.
