Ok let me ask you, I've downloaded addon called REHack, then by a command /hack ingame I can write a lua script then run it.

Now I've disabled the addon that I was running a script from, then I created similar to that lua file using that rehack addon, then ran that, will that perform the same way, or is it slower or bad, I'm not an addon creater, I just wanted to edit that lua file and I can't do it through the computer because it was disabled, hope the picture is clear to you why I'm using that nohack addon to create a script ingame.
