    Problem with threads

    Lua is single threaded. Meaning that only one chunck of code can ever run at a time. Coroutines are considered co-operative in that they yield to allow others to compute before they themselves finish. The idea is that we can do a little work we need right now and do it quickly, then yield so others can do the same, hence co-operative. Threads are fancy coroutines, but they are still limited to cooperation, so they must yield if you wish to begin another. Use term.read or io.read or os.sleep.... etc.

    Inventory Access Side

    I believe this is actually by design so that OC(particularly robots) isn't considered too 'OP'

    Serialization problems

    I haven't tested but I believe the file descriptor has a file position. After the call to :read("*all") you're at the end of the file and thus nil is returned.

And a bug...

    how do you power down a drone remotely?

    Functions cannot* be sent over a modem. Only primitive types like strings, numbers or booleans can be sent raw. Tables can be serialized(turned into a string), but the same rules apply. Just send a command as a string or number that the drone will use as a command to call computer.shutdown on it's own.

    OPPM not installable

    you're going to have to be more specific.

    OPPM not installable

    just type the command install with the oppm disk in a floppy drive. You will be prompted for installation, type y and press enter.

    Duel Display Output

    If you're trying to use the *same terminal window on two screens at once it can be tricky to do unless you know OpenOS as well as Payonel does. However, if you just want to be able you run one program on a secondary screen and be able to use a shell or run a program on another screen , then you can check out this thread I answered before. I think it might be helpful. similar question

    HELP my drone fainted

    Debugging drones can be difficult but the analyzer will help you get an error message from crashed programs on microcontrollers. Seeing the code and where you say it crashes.. I'd say that indexing the supposed table `v` caused the error. Indexing being `v.name` or `v.x`. I suppose if v.x or v.z or v.y are nil then drone.move will likely throw an error. But it's hard to know without more info. Get that analyzer data and come back. Hell, just wrap the whole code in pcall and collect any errors. local d= component.proxy(component.list("drone")()) local m= component.proxy(component.list("modem")()) local r= component.proxy(component.list("radar")()) m.open(1) local ok, err --# declare outside loop so we can get the value later when true do local rtable,mov,x,y,z = select(6, computer.pullSignal()) if mov == "follow" then ok, err = pcall(function() for k, v in pairs(r.getEntities()) do if v.name == "PHOBOSS" then d.move(v.x, v.y, v.z) end end end) --# pcall end if not ok then --# we have an error break --# break the while loop end end end -- # send the error back to our controller and finish m.send(ourHost, port, 'ERROR: '..(err or ""))

    Power Saving

    The linked card is one of the most expensive components next to the geolyzer when it comes to energy. Coroutines are actually really efficient because all other forms i.e loops are a "busy" waiting and thus consume power running functions, evaluating... os.sleep is essentially coroutines.yield. As for remote booting you should see the doc on modem.setWakeMessage

    How do you make a loop stop on user input?

    local component = require("component") local event = require("event") local m = component.modem m.open(1) repeat print("Hi") -- # seconds, event name local cmd = select(6, event.pull(1, "modem_message")) until cmd == "stop" https://ocdoc.cil.li/api:event

    Hot damn asie, I think you win coolest shit on the forums with this one...

    How do you make a loop stop on user input?

    I think I need you to ask your question again.. I thought you needed the loop to stop on a "modem_message" event, but I guess you're really trying to stop a loop when a key is pressed?

    How do you make a loop stop on user input?

    local component = require("component") local event = require("event") local m = component.modem -- # make local too m.open(1) -- # 001 ?? repeat -- # run in the loop to repeat reception of 'cmd' local cmd = select(6, event.pull("modem_message")) -- # this is cleaner until cmd == "stop"

    Tell me where I went wrong?

    I'm running MC 1.12.2 with Computronics meant for 1.12.1 and although it works* I also cannot retrieve any player information from the radar. So I wouldn't call it a bug because I'm in the wrong version... but it's prob a bug...
