What is lag?
It's where an experience appears to stutter or slow down, causing players to appear to be warping around the experience. It is generally a sign of a slow experience or connection.
Below are some things to check for when trying to address the issue of lagging:
This type of lag occurs when your internet connection to Roblox is slow or unstable. This results in other players unpredictably warping around the world, or in-experience actions taking an unusual amount of time to complete. For this situation, read the information on general connection problems.
If your device isn't very powerful when it comes to playing Roblox, this often results in stuttering / choppy visuals. For this situation, check your Roblox graphics level.
- While playing, open the in-experience menu by pressing the Esc key.
- Go to Settings
- Under the GRAPHICS section, you can check the graphics level of Roblox.
- To lower the level, first toggle the Graphics Quality - Auto to disable it. Then make any necessary adjustments to lower your level.
Lower graphics levels will reduce some of the image/visual quality but it also means that your device works less to run Roblox and may result in a better experience.
If lowering the graphics quality didn't improve the issue, check to make sure your device isn't running other high-power apps. If it is, try closing any unwanted apps to make sure they aren't taking up system resources that Roblox may need to run properly.
If your device still experiences lag beyond this, you may need to upgrade it or play Roblox on a more powerful device.
