How would I "wait" faster than the default wait time is?

Asked by

So I have done:

wait()

but that seems to be to slow. Before you say how is that too slow, for my purposes it actually is. Is there anyway to get around it so its like .0001 of a second. I would also like to know what the actually time is for 'wait()', I thought is was .37 of a second or somthing.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day.

wait() 's minimal time is around .03 seconds

There is no way to make it go under .000001 seconds, as it depends of your computer/the server's frame rate

For an exact time, try

print(wait())

it should display wait's time for you

:wait() yields the current thread for 1/30th of a second, or the integer passed in as an argument.

The only method that will produce the same effect of 'yielding' the current thread with a faster minimum is .onRenderStepped(), which is an Event of RunService that fires when a new frame is drawn.

Since Roblox runs at 60 fps, .onRenderStepped() fires every 1/60th of a second, thereby making it twice as fast as wait().

However, it must be used in a LocalScript, as RunService is a local service.
