Installation and Setup

Roblox Battle Royale consists of easily accessible .rbxl files which you can open in Roblox Studio and experiment with immediately.

Lobby.rbxl Entrance lobby where players choose the game mode
Gameplay.rbxl Where the battle match takes place
Queue.rbxl Queue place where players gather before being teleported to battle map

Create a New Game

Roblox Battle Royale must be structured as a game with six unique articles/games and places|places. To begin:

  1. Open Lobby.rbxl in Roblox Studio.

  2. When ready, click the Create button.

Add Additional Places

Once the lobby place is published, you’ll need to add five additional places to the game:

  1. If it’s not already visible, open the Game Explorer window (ViewGame Explorer).
  1. Right-click Places and select Add New Place. Repeat this a total of five times so that you have six places (including Lobby).
  1. Right-click each of the new places, select Rename, and name them as follows:
  • Lobby
  • Gameplay
  • Queue (Default)
  • Queue (Deathmatch)
  • Queue (Team Deathmatch)
  • Queue (Free Play)
  1. Publish the game again (FilePublish to Roblox).

Copy/Paste Place IDs

Each place must be cross-associated so that players can teleport from the lobby to various play mode queues and vice-versa. To achieve this, you’ll need to gather the place IDs of the places you created above.

  1. In the Game Explorer window, right-click Lobby and select Copy ID to Clipboard.
  1. If it’s not already visible, open the Explorer window (ViewExplorer).
  2. Open the MainConfiguration script within ReplicatedFirstConfigurations.

  1. Publish the game again (FilePublish to Roblox).

Adjust Player Count

By default, Roblox places allow a maximum of 10 players per server, but a massive battle royale should feature bigger, more intense battles. To achieve this:

  1. Refer to the _places table in the lobby’s MainConfiguration script:
  1. Open a browser window.
  2. Paste the following URL into the browser address bar and, for each of the six places, replace PLACE_ID with the place’s corresponding ID from the _places table.
For instance, if the lobby's place ID is 0123456789, enter the following URL into your browser:
  1. On each place’s configuration page, click the Access tab.
  2. For the Maximum Player Count setting, increase the setting to a value like 50.
  3. For Server Fill, select “Fill each server as full as possible.”
  4. Click Save at the bottom of the page.
