Roblox is an online game platform, as well as a game creation system. Although its initial growth in the years since its launch in 2006 was slow, Roblox has now become one of the biggest game platforms with an estimated monthly user base of 200 million. However, one annoying problem that players may encounter is the game crashing when launched or during play. The reasons causing this particular issue could vary from system to system, so it may be worth checking a couple of solutions until you find the right one.
Update Your GPU Drivers and Windows
The first step should be to check if any updates have been released for your specific GPU model. Using outdated graphics drivers could cause incompatibility issues and lead to the game crashing. You can check for new driver versions by going to the official website of your GPU manufacture or through the appropriate software suite. At this stage, it also may be a good idea to download and install any new updates that have been released for your Windows OS as well.
