I’ve been able to use Roblox Studio offline for years actually, but recently that all changed.
some developers didn't know how you'd do it, but. . .
it was by simply clicking on the RobloxStudioBeta exe within Roblox’s installation Folder…
So a little after the RDC, I updated my Roblox Studio by walking to the Library with my computer, and after coming back. I find this message.
Used to be I’d get the ‘Unable to Connect’ message And I would still get to use Studio in an Offline mode. Now, no matter what I do, I can’t do a thing…
So with the recent update, Roblox has changed my ability to develop. Effectively killing any ability for me to develop games on Roblox.
The solution is simple.
Allow Roblox Studio to operate without needing to Login. (again)
If this isn’t done, this might be the end of any future on Roblox for me or my brother.
We can’t afford Internet, and we were frankly hoping to be able to start paying for it as soon as we succesfully launch our first real project, and start getting at least the bare minimum payout fairly soon after.
It takes us approx. an hour to walk to the nearest library lugging around our computer equipment so that we could connect to the Internet for updates and such. (weather permitting) This isn’t a good long-term solution for us.
I really hope Roblox will at least consider the few developers like us we are stuck Offline most-of-the-time, and allow us to AT The Very Least use Roblox Studio as we’ve been doing for years.
I’ve contacted Support, got the standard response, and am unsure if they’ll actually do anything about it. (recommend any other like-minded or kind Devs to do the same though)
Thank you for reading.
