What is lag?
It's where a game appears to stutter or slow down, causing players to appear to be warping around the game. It is generally a sign of a slow game or connection. Below are some things to check for when trying to address the issue of lagging.
Check the Roblox graphics level. When in a game, hit Escape to bring up the menu. From there, you can check the graphics level of Roblox and set it to a lower level. If the Graphics Mode is currently set to 'Automatic', change it to 'Manual' and then you will be able to make any necessary adjustments. Lower graphics levels will reduce some of the image/visual quality but it also means that your computer works less to run Roblox and may result in a better game play experience until you can upgrade your hardware or have a better connection.
Check your computer's resources
If lowering the quality didn't work, check to make sure your system resources are not being used by other high-power programs. Close out of any unnecessary programs to make sure they aren't taking up system resources that Roblox may need to run properly. It is recommended that when you run Roblox, for the most optimal experience, that you close all other programs.
If your home network is not functioning at it's best, Roblox can have general lagging issues during gameplay. For this situation, please click here.
