Roblox Studio runs fine and you can use it to login in.
Roblox Player Launcher works fine, but it opens the webpage in the native browser, not in browser within the Wine environment.
What does not
I cannot figure out how to get the player to try to start a game.
What was not tested
Actually playing a game.
The command line options reported by the Roblox Player Beta are:
-? [ --help ]: Display the help.
-g [ --globalBasicSettingsPath ] arg: Specify path to the global settings.
-v [ --version ]: Display the current version.
-h [ --hash] arg: Web hash launch key, overrides other launch args.
-c [ --content ] arg: Specify path to the content directory.
-a [ --authenticationUrl ] arg: Specify authentication URL from server.
-t [ --authenticationTicket ] arg: Specify game session ticket from server.
-j [ --joinScriptUrl ] arg: URL of launch script from server.
-b [ --browserTrackerId ] arg: Specify browser tracking ID from website.
-w [ --waitEvent ] arg: Window is invisible until this event occurs.
--API arg: Output API file.
-d [ --dmp ]: Upload crash dump.
--play: Specifies the launching of a game.
--app: Specifies the launching of an application.
--fast: Uses fast starttup path.
--launchtime arg: Specify the launch time from the browser.
I cannot figure out how to get URLs etc to pass to these arguments.

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.
