[SA|LUA|MOONLOADER] Load Library Once

Recommended Posts

cardboardbox1230

Hey. I need help. I am coding in LUA using MoonLoader. I have a very heavy library (taking about 1.5s to load). I use the "require" command to load it. The problem is, when I load it, the game hangs for a while. When the library is loaded multiple times from one file, it works fine (loading it only once). But when I load the same library from a different file, it loads it again, hanging the game once again. I would like the library to be only loaded once, returning the same result, no matter how many times it is loaded or "require"d.

 

Here are the files I used to test:


 

Spoiler

TestLibrary.lua:

print("LOADED LIBRARY: TestLibrary.lua")

 

TestRequire1.lua:

require("TestLibrary")
require("TestLibrary")
require("TestLibrary")

 

TestRequire2.lua:

require("TestLibrary")
require("TestLibrary")
require("TestLibrary")

 

And here is the LOG from MoonLoader.log

As you can see, it outputs the result (print) for each file.

I have already figured out a way to do this: using LUA exports. This thread may be locked.
