Absurdly Slow Debug (Intuitive Debugger)

Reproduction Steps

Get a long script, set a breakpoint and try to debug (steps)

Expected Behavior

Debugging should remain fast.

Actual Behavior

IMPOSSIBLE TO DEBUG (Each step takes up to 20 seconds!)
This started to happen after this:

Issue Area: Studio
Issue Type: Performance
Impact: High
Frequency: Constantly
Date First Experienced: 2023-01-23 00:01:00 (-03:00)


Roblox screwed up and officially replaced a stable debugger by a buggy one.


Only after a DM to @IcyTides knew that the Roblox team has reversed the issue and made it possible to return the Intuitive Debugger to the Beta list.

I’ve been stuck since yesterday and due to this bug and, AGAIN, no one from Roblox has come forward to say the issue has now been fixed.

This lack of communication from the Roblox team with the bugs reported on the forum is a constant and harmful situation.

I’ll keep this thread open, as the Intuitive Debugger slowdown problem hasn’t changed.

Thanks for the report! We’ll follow up when we have an update for you.


Today, Roblox again IMPOSED the new debugger in place of the old debugger.
It’s hard to understand why you do this, since the Intuitive Debugger is still flawed and slow (more than 1 second per line step).
Why not consult the developer community first?
After all, we are the ones who make the games that make Roblox money.
Please stop belittling us!
