Well, I haven't done something similar yet, so I don't know if there's a way to have a program with and while loop running in the background, I did some quick test with coroutines, but it didn't seem to work.

What would work is to use an event driven program, but that would require you to do some rewriting of your code.

So what you would do is registering some events with event.listen(event_type, callback) and then having the corresponding callback do your stuff.

For periodically stuff like checking your me system for items or whatever, you can register timers that are repeated infinitely with event.timer(interval, callback, math.huge), doing stuff that need to be triggered by time and not some user input or incoming modem messages or sth like that.

That way, open os would run with the me programming running simultaneously.

So I did some small changes to  your AE2Crafting.lua file, it should work now as intended.

I wasn't able to test it yet, so tell me if it works or not.

event.timer(loopDelay, loop, math.huge)

So what I did was removing your while loop, and just put the entire code inside that loop into a function called "loop". Then I set a timer with event.timer, that will wait "loopDelay" seconds until it calls the loop function. Since I added math.huge as third variable, the loop function will be called repeatedly.

I think its working but its not starting directly so i would maybe start it ones before timer starts it "loopDelay" later.

I appreciate it and thx for helping me
