- Joining ROBLOX games from command line.
- Joining ROBLOX games from Firefox for Windows.
- Starting ROBLOX Studio (slow loading time)
- Building in ROBLOX studio on a place loaded from disk.
- Saving and loading with ROBLOX Studio.
What does not

- Performance issues with DirectX. OpenGL not tested yet.

What was not tested
You need to install "winetricks vcrun2008 winhttp wininet" for ROBLOX to work. You need a working web browser for Windows installed on your Linux system if you want to be able to follow other players. Internet explorer doesn't work for ROBLOX, but Firefox does :) I strongly recommend that you use Firefox for Windows when you play ROBLOX.

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.
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.
