This is for anyone with a problem trying to get roblox to work on windows 8 or admins who might want to try to fix it.

Just got Windows 8 consumer preview, and when I tried entering any place it came up with "Roblox has encountered a error" and closed.

I went to C:\Users\EddardStark\AppData\Local\Roblox\logs and in the newest log I found

We picked: DeviceType: D3DDEVTYPE_HAL Resolution: 1024x768 AdapterFormat: D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8 BackBufferFormat: D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8 BehaviorFlags: 64 Windowed: 0
Initializing CrashEvent request, url: http://www.roblox.com/Error/Dmp.ashx?filename=C:\Users\EddardStark\AppData\Local\Roblox\logs\log_3ED27 0, 63, 0, 591.crashevent

So I realized roblox crashed when initializing directx, so I opened studio and went into Settings>Rendering and changed GraphicManager to OpenGL and it works fine now.

I'm using the AMD Catalyst driver for windows 8 preview;

In before cool story bro.

Why havent you updated to Windows 8 Release preview, It has flash in IE 10. And its faster. How did you "Just get windows 8 consumer" when it hasent been able to download in 2 weeks?

@Eddard Stark

So it works with OpenGL but not with DirectX? Weird. Bah, I prefer OpenGL, anyway.

>"THE METRO EXPERIENCE!"

Are you kidding me? Do you know how many people prefer Windows 7 over Windows 8?

Here's a perfect example on why.

Anybody who had Windows Vista before Windows 7 came out got to upgrade to Windows 7 free; while anybody who has Windows 7 before Windows 8 comes out got to upgrade to Windows 8 for $14.99.

You make your choice.

Microsoft did it for free because VISTA SUCKED! And if you have windows 7 ultimate, you'll get windows 8 ultimate ect. And Windows 8 is great.

this is so vague that you sound like another dumb bandwagon rider

There IS no Windows 8 Ultimate. Why do you think it's only previewing things like the Metro start menu?

Windows 8 is by far better than Windows 7. It's the first time in many many many many many years Microsoft actually updates Windows's horrible interface.

All they did from Windows 95 to Windows 7 was adding more blue, more transparency and more animations. Linux is WAAAAAAY ahead of Windows right now.

Well when using chrome it gets stuck at "Updating roblox forever"
When starting roblox from the start menu then entering a place it crashes and says "Roblox has encountered an error"
And when I turn it to OpenGL mode I can enter places but any block my camera is near turns white and loses and textures.

Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?

Windows 8 is great, the metro experience runs perfectly. And even if you don't like the metro experience you can switch to the desktop version in a click of a button.

Once you download Windows 8, you most likely wont be able to go back to Windows 7.

I use Windows 8 Full 64 bit (I am on it right now), and RBLX runs like a dream. Oh wait, it's ROBLOX, it can run on anything.
