As a Roblox developer and player, it is currently too hard to leave Roblox’s player. If I follow the standard Windows UX expectations, pressing Alt + F4 or press the close (X) button, Roblox asks me if I want to leave.
This is against standard Windows UX norms and can cause increased frustration with the userbase. The only expectation is dealing with unsaved data which the prompt does not talk about, and thus doesn’t apply.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my experience because players are no longer frustrated every time they want to leave Roblox.
It’s more than the UX implications, if Roblox hang crashes you’re now forced to open Task Manager to forcefully close Roblox.
This was originally a bug report but after Roblox confirmed it was entirely intentional, this report has been made. You can learn more about what 17 replies said below
I have to agree with this. It’s terrible user experience to override the close button. There’s practically a consensus on this that says unless you’re warning a user they haven’t saved it should immediately close.
