HowTo / Notes

Information regarding OpenGL vs DirectX mode

In older versions of Wine, 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.

We recommend using Wine 5.0 or higher.


Note about installing Roblox on Linux easily

Running Roblox on Linux is easiest when using a helper script, such as Grapejuice or Roblox Linux Wrapper. You can obtain Grapejuice by clicking this link and Roblox Linux Wrapper by clicking this link. Each project has instructions to follow on how to install Roblox on Linux.

Warning

The Roblox game client is using anti-cheat and security features (VMProtect) 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.

Can't run on OpenGL Graphic Mode
by SaraParker on Monday May 18th 2020, 2:14
I want to run it on OpenGL graphics but unfortunately, it gives an error i.e. "unable to initialize OpenGL" and it also says that please install the latest driver of OpenGL that was mention in an article of britishcoursework.com however I already update it but this error is persistent. Do you have any solution to this issue?
