What works

  • The game launches
  • No longer kicks with the message "You have been kicked due to unexpected client behavior."
  • Able to play any Roblox place I've come across.
  • FPS Unlocker

What does not

  • Doesn't open the game when installed using wine only on any browser.
  • When the game is running in DirectX it can sometimes have weird graphics and stuttering. (You can use Shift+F2 to check what graphics API is being used)
  • Mouse controls has some weird issues.

Workarounds

I used the Grapejuice wrapper in order to install roblox and have it open when selecting play in the browser. Wine doesn't seem to automatically assign roblox to open when launching though the browser.

Chromium based browser didn't know what to do when you tried to join a game. Doing xdg-mime default roblox-player.desktop x-scheme-handler/roblox-player in the terminal fixed this issue for me.

Roblox usually ran for DirectX 11 which isn't ideal for wine. To disable DirectX you can use Grapejuice and go to "Roblox FFlag editor" under launcher and enable "FFlagDebugGraphicsDisableDirect3D11" and "FFlagDebugGraphicsDisableDirect3D9". If you want to prefer either OpenGL or Vulkan enable either "FFlagDebugGraphicsPreferVulkan" or "FFlagDebugGraphicsPreferOpenGL" in the Roblox FFlag editor.

Mouse can be a little weird but Grapejuice sorta fixes it.
