Additional Comments

You must run "winetricks vcrun2012 winhttp wininet" in a 32-bit wine prefix, using the latest in-development winetricks available on the winetricks homepage (see Additionally, you need to install Mozilla Firefox within your new wine prefix in order to launch games. Additionally, you need to run "wine regsvr32 `find $WINEPREFIX -iname NPRobloxProxy.dll`" if you would like to join games with the Windows version of Firefox. The game runs much better with the winetricks flag "ddr=gdi", however it may cause issues with some graphics cards. There is a script available for doing this automatically, visit to download the script.

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.
