The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results

What works

- Client successfully loads assets and launches when using RLW 

- Brief connection to the game server

- Updating

- GPU is playing nice with the client

What does not

The server will disconnect you since Roblox virtualizes and encrypts their code through VMProtect. No possible way around this with the current version of Wine. 

Workarounds

You can use Roblox Linux Wrapper (outdated) to setup a proper environment to run the Roblox applications.

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.
