Not to be picky, but I remember the first time you asked about this.
Language, IMVeryImmenslyHO, seemed to be your problem.  You were asking
about inducing lag and everyone was like "What in the world would you want
to do that for?!"  What you want is a delay--not a lag.  Lag's just the
slowing down of the communication and processes affecting the game.  What
you were aiming at was delaying a character's next command after executing
another.  Am I right?  Anyways, just thought I'd let you know if noone
else had.
Btw, PULSE and WAIT_STATE is the right path, just gotta put it in in the
right places.
