This errors because these generic players don’t have an account on Roblox, similar to guest accounts before they were removed. These players instead have placeholder account IDs that do not refer to valid Roblox profiles (I believe they’re negative numbers).

I mean, I don’t know if that’s the best way to go about it, but since you’re examining their avatar, why doesn’t roblox use CharacterAppeareanceId’s instead?
