Hi Louis,

The breadth engine is currently being rebuilt as part of a wider Optuma overhaul Mathew Verdouw is working on that will see massive improvements in processing speeds and resource management (due as part of Optuma 2.2 update near the end of this year).

If you want to hard code it to 500 you would adjust the script to:
