    The "Wait (Game-Time)" function says it is a polled wait, and because of that it can last a little longer than expected.

    It also says that it is specified in game-time seconds.

    My questions are: What is a polled wait, and what are game-time seconds?

    In-game seconds are based on the games speed setting, so if the game is set to slow, the actual time that goes by will be longer than if the game was set to fast.

    well theres 480 real seconds per game day so
    24 hours per game day
    I would say roughly every 20 real seconds is 1 game hour
    So thats 1 real second per 3 game minutes
    if you roughly have a idea of the different between them now
    PS you can change game seconds to real seconds if you know how to
    Advance>Gameplay Constants than just go to the bottom where it says time - real secondsper day and put in the real amount of seconds per day
    60secs=1min, 60mins= 1hr 24hrs=1 day
    Do the math
    as for polled wait idk
