HowTo / Notes

Information regarding OpenGL vs DirectX mode

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.
