What does not
Glitchy keyboard input (no shift, commas inserted randomly; work around by turning on/off num lock)
What was not tested
Video recording, but worked in a previous test.
winetricks ddr=gdi is needed for the game to render properly. Make sure to "regsvr32 /i" the file "RobloxProxy.dll". On a 64-bit prefix, also run that on the "RobloxProxy64.dll" file. The keyboard input is bugged for some reason; the shift key does not work. Additionally, it may enter random commas in place of the space key, as well as randomly in the text. To work around this, toggle num lock to its other state -- if it is on, turn it off; if it is off, turn it on.

If you are having issues, make sure you ran "winetricks ddr=gdi". If it still does not work, try wine-staging.
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.
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.
