What would you like to do?
Use interrupt to create a delay in Minetest Luacontrollers
local delay = 1
if event.type == 'program' then
interrupt( delay, 'Once' )
interrupt( delay, 'Loop' )
end
if event.type == 'interrupt' then
if event.iid == 'Once' then
print( 'Run once' )
elseif event.iid == 'Loop' then
print( 'over and over' )
interrupt( delay, 'Loop' )
end
end

This example causes an overheat after a few seconds.

yea, it was to illustrate the difference between those two methods to somebody on Discord. They were having the same issue; having it loop then overheat, when it should have only run once.

That would depend on your server and your uses. Try increasing the delay to reduce the chance of it happening. Otherwise, rebuild machine, or tweak server settings.

I found out that an activated modlib causes the overheating.
