Update, 2/1/2013: the ROBLOX Studio 2.0 beta has ended and this blog post is now completely, totally, utterly out of date! For information and download instructions on the latest and greatest build, ROBLOX Studio 2013, please see this article.
The public beta for ROBLOX Studio 2.0, the latest version of ROBLOX’s game-development application, is now available. You can download it here and give us your feedback on our Studio 2.0 forum. Please note that this beta is for Windows users only; ROBLOX Studio for Mac already uses our new framework and interface. Installing Studio 2.0 will not interfere with Studio 1.0, so you’ll be able to use both at the same time.
Your feedback is the most important part of this beta test. As you experiment with Studio 2.0, make specific, well documented notes that will help us identify areas that still need polish. The following points are a few relevant things to consider.
- What works well? What doesn’t?
- Where do you notice performance issues?
- Did you experience a crash? What caused it?
- How is the user interface intuitive/unintuitive?
- What works better than it did in ROBLOX 1.0? What do you think is worse?
- How can we make Studio 2.0 better?
You can always reference our user-testing blog post for more information on how we use your feedback and for tips on providing useful details.
As you may remember from our announcement, Studio 2.0 promises a more consistent user experience across Mac and PC platforms, improved performance and ease of use, and a polished user interface. You can now see for yourself.
