Running garry’s mod for 8-12 hours while on-and-off programming Lua, my laptop tends to start reaching max temperature (203F) due to not only running the code, but calculating graphics, bot movements, etc. This led me to research a possibility, which I couldn’t find said question being asked previously.
Is it possible to run Lua code, even if it’s just derma, outside of the client? Such as a webpage that tests the code, or an application that isn’t as CPU/GPU dependent?
If not, what ways can I reduce my heat generation and CPU demand while testing the code without opening/closing/opening/closing/opening/closing Garry’s Mod every 15-30 minutes?
