Selected Test Results

What works

Basic building. Lighting works too. Direct3D seems to make Roblox very, very, very ugly so use OpenGL.

You can actually play in your game too, but in Play Solo mode.

Meshes can be seen, including package bodies, hats and gear. Their textures load too.

Saving games work.

What does not

Some areas in Roblox Studio, like the toolbox (known as Insert.. in the old GUI) and web browser, require IE. If you don't have IE, it will display blank.

Shirts and pants love deciding whether they want to work or not.

Smoke caused the whole OS to crash on me.


What was not tested

Super build and inserting models from the hard drive.

Additional Comments

Game freezes temporarily when there is a drastic change in the properties, like clicking a block then clicking Lighting. This is because of the Properties pane lagging up the window, close it for when you are not changing stuff like lighting. Direct3D makes the game look as terrible as hell. If you want to fix this, change the graphicsMode to OpenGL. If you don't like the guest look during gameplay, change the 1 in: to your user ID (or someone else's if you like ;)), change the characterappearance to the new link (click characterappearance and then edit the link) and you can play your game solo in Linux with your own look. Rotating the camera seems to be a bit jerky with the mouse... You might need a better computer than mine, I was playing on a 2.80Ghz Intel Dual Core processor, 1GB RAM, 32-bit Ubuntu.

HowTo / Notes


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 and follow the instructions on the page.

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.
