Thoughts about making Roblox work under Wine Runner for Lutris


#1

So I don’t know how many people know about Roblox to be honest I didn’t until my God-daughter started playing it. However they seem to be just browser based HTML5 games for the most part and aside from the launcher , which is a windows executable, all it does is just fire up a web browser with some credentials and run inside that.

So the main issue is the latest Windows versions of Firefox don’t work great in Wine but the Roblox client won’t work at all on Linux. Maybe Lutris can help solve this. If we can install custom libs and diversions into a container could be perhaps trick Roblox to fire up a wine versions of Firefox and work?

I know for a fact that Firefox on Windows works fine because that is what my God-daughter is using atm. But I want to wean her off Windows if possible and this would be one of the ways to do that.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks.
