  4. Search for the RobloxPlayerBeta.exe task, right-click it, hover on Set priority, and change the value to High.

This process will increase the RAM allocated to Roblox and work for all games you play.

2. Close other apps

By closing other apps before running Roblox, you are reducing the amount of RAM used by other programs, which frees up more RAM for Roblox. As a result, Roblox has more memory available, which can improve its performance.

It’s also worth mentioning that if your computer is running low on RAM, the operating system may start to page out some of the data from the RAM to your hard drive, slowing down your computer’s and Roblox’s performance.

So, closing unneeded apps can help the operating system to use the available memory more efficiently.

3. Using the Command Prompt

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box.
  2. Type cmd and press Enter to open the command prompt.
  3. Type the following command and hit Enter:
    "start "" "RobloxPlayerBeta.exe" -malloc=system"

This command will start Roblox and allocate more RAM using the system memory allocator.

Note that RobloxPlayerBeta.exe may be different depending on your version of Roblox, so be sure to check the Roblox support website for the correct file name.

Also, the -malloc=system flag might not work for all versions of Roblox, and on all operating systems, you can try different flags that suit your system and version of Roblox.

In conclusion, allocating more RAM to Roblox can significantly improve the game’s performance and provide a smoother gaming experience.

By following the simple steps outlined in this article, you can efficiently allocate more RAM to Roblox and start enjoying a better gaming experience.

Remember that the amount of RAM you allocate will depend on the amount of RAM your computer has available, so be sure to check your computer’s specifications before allocating RAM to the game.
