# Game lags bad if all players are hiding when monster is released?

Edited 20 days ago

I'm working on a little game where every 60 seconds there's a chance a monster will wake up and teleport to players, instakilling them. The player can avoid this by getting into a locker before he kills them. The problem is, whenever every player is hiding, the loop I use to get all the players executes too many times and lags. Is there a way to fix this?

Below is the code for the monster.

local Players = game:GetService("Players"):GetPlayers()
local seeker = script.Parent
local pickedPlayer
game.Workspace.Active.Changed:Connect(function()
if game.Workspace.Active.Value == true then
wait(10)
while game.Workspace.Active.Value == true do
for _, player2 in ipairs(game.Players:GetPlayers()) do
if player2.Character.Hiding.Value ~= true then
seeker.Torso.CFrame = player2.Character.Torso.CFrame
wait(2)
if player2.Character.Hiding.Value ~= true then
player2.Character.Humanoid.Health -= 100000000000
end
end
end
end
end
end)

What exactly do you mean with lag? every wait() causes the whole script to do nothing in that time. For ececuting too many times: If you dont set the acitve value to false again it is going to continue forever as you have a while loop. xXMadonXx 190 — 20d

The scripts exhausts its allowed execution time. I cant immediately disabled active as that's the value keeping the monster active. Uniplier 83 — 18d
