Saving games occasionally fails (wininet bug). To work around this, save locally and relaunch ROBLOX Studio 2013, then try again.

Extremely long initial loading time (wininet bug).

Fullscreen is selectively broken (it may work for you, but did not work for me)

Website doesn't behave properly. Occasionally, a page will not load properly or buttons on the site will not work, this can be fixed by refreshing or going to the home page.

Additional Comments

It is highly recommended to run this in a dedicated 32-bit wine prefix. To do this, set the WINEPREFIX and WINEARCH variables. Additionally, it is necessary to run "winetricks vcrun2012 winhttp wininet" in your wine prefix if you would like to log in and edit games. Hopefully, these requirements will disappear shortly as wine becomes more capable. required winetricks: - winhttp - wininet - vcrun2012 optional winetricks: - ddr=gdi Be sure to see the "Information regarding OpenGL vs DirectX mode" note below.

HowTo / Notes

WARNING

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 https://github.com/roblox-linux-wrapper/roblox-linux-wrapper and follow the instructions on the page.
