HowTo / Notes

WARNING

If you are having issues, make sure you ran "winetricks ddr=gdi". If it still does not work, try wine-staging.

Information regarding OpenGL vs DirectX mode

Both Roblox Player & Studio work far better with OpenGL graphics enabled.

To enable OpenGL mode, open the Roblox Studio, click "File", then "Settings", followed by "Rendering". A prompt will come up saying "Changing settings may make ROBLOX unstable". Click OK. Under the Rendering submenu, change the option "graphicsMode" from "Direct3D" to "OpenGL". Restart Roblox Studio.

The game should now perform much better.
Note about Roblox Linux Wrapper
There is a script available which will manage and set up ROBLOX Player & ROBLOX Studio on your system automatically. To install it, visit https://github.com/roblox-linux-wrapper/roblox-linux-wrapper and follow the instructions on the page.
Warning

The Roblox game client is using security features (code virtualization/encryption) that prevent Wine (and other emulators) from connecting to servers. 


The client will load up just fine and you will be connected for a brief second but will be forced into a disconnect within 10 seconds.
