Reasons why is Roblox not working
There are several possible reasons why Roblox is not working. Below are some of them:
- Firewall: Most of the issue is due to firewall, even though it can be the result of a low bandwidth connection or an inconsistent wireless connection.
- Slow internet connection: For those who are playing the game and your internet connection is slow while the game is big, it is not surprising for downloading the map to take a long time. In this case, you can just be patient.
- Empty game/place: If you think that the map is running but the stuff is nowhere to be seen, it means the map did load. It is possible for the creator of the game to not build anything in it and just make it empty. It is actually easy to tell when the map is done loading when the avatar shows up.
- Bad game/place: The game can be prevented from running properly when it has a bad script or if there are too many objects. You can try to notify the creator of the game and tell them to fix it.
Methods to fix the issue
Below are the methods that you can try to fix the issue. Please try the first one and move to the next one and so on.
- Be sure that you are using the browser that is supported by Roblox
It is important to make sure that the browser that you are currently using to play Roblox is the most updated version. For the Roblox Studio, it is also needed to get the newest version of Internet Explorer. In case you are having a hard time playing with the current browser, you are encouraged to try playing on a different browser, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
- For Windows, reset the internet options
Sometimes, the issue can be fixed by just resetting your internet options. Remember that this method will require you to use the Internet Explorer, but it is effective to fix the other issues even for those who use the other browsers such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
In order to reset your internet options, the first thing that should be done is to open the Internet Explorer. When you are there, open the gear icon and choose Internet options. Next, open the Advanced tab. After that, click the Reset button. After resetting, please close the Internet Explorer. In the end, you can try playing again.
- Check the Security Settings of the browser
It is needed for you to make sure that the security settings on your browser allow for Roblox. Setting these settings too high can cause a lot of issues, including the ones that have been mentioned above and the website issues such as buttons or links not responding.
- Check the wireless connection
If it is possible, you can use a wired connection instead of the wireless one. If the case is not related to the connection or if you cannot try the wired one, please check the settings of the firewall.
- Remove or disable any ad-blocker browser add-ons
It has been known that browser add-ons or extensions can cause several issues. One of these issues is stopping a game from fully loading.
- Be sure that the appropriate ports are open
Apparently, the ports that are used by Roblox rely on the operating system that is used. For your information, the port range is currently UDP 49152 – 65535. Please keep all these ports open to allow Roblox to connect to the router without getting interrupted.
- Configure the firewall and or router
A number of antivirus or internet security software always act like a boss. They love to control the programs that can access the internet. In most cases, these programs make mistakes by making no program allowed to be accessed.
- Reinstall Roblox
If no one of these methods work well, the last thing that you can try is to reinstall Roblox. If you want to reinstall Roblox, firstly, head over to the Settings. Then, choose Apps and uninstall Roblox. Another way to uninstall Roblox is to use uninstall software such as IOBit Uninstaller. This kind of tool will make sure that Roblox and all of its files and registry entries are completely removed from your device. After it is removed, do not forget to install it again.
You are encouraged to keep up to date on the maintenance and service issues with the website notifications and social media posts.
