Status Lost

Roblox is a massively multiplayer online game where users can create their own games for which other users can play. Before it was released to the public, it was known as Dynablocks.

Although the current version of the game is still up and playable, the clients from 2005 through 2007 have been lost. In July 2007, Roblox hosted a humorous video contest that many users entered, which is why we can find many videos from the lost 2007 clients. Only a handful of pictures and no videos from 2005 have been found so far, while the 2006 client has videos in the form of trailers and promotional videos since that was when the game was initially released to the public.

A patent released in 2005, which can be found here, shows some screenshots of the client and website from 2005.

In 2017, an installer for the 2007 client has been recovered, although it isn't possible to download the actual client as the original 2007 files have since been deleted from the Roblox servers. A download can be found here.

I joined in 2011 when I was younger but there are some 2004 - 2005 client simulators on actual Roblox just an FYI if someone tries to fake them having a client in hand

Huh. With all of the content about comparisons with it on YouTube I thought the game would just be on the second page of Google.

I actually join Roblox in June 2007, The "Builds" you're talking about is the same ask the 2008 "build" but 2008 have more bug fixes. also The banner of the site would changes depending on what Holiday it is. The Game didn't <re>enable shadows until late 2007 ( December Something...) The Roblox studio layout is the same but with a gray or blue header. Toolbox actually have things like Robots (which is the first thing I had put in my place before the update that was the place creation dates, ) that was david.baszucki Models and the user Toolbox.

that is all i remember, you could also send people friend invites that make you write a reason why you would like to be there friend instead of sending a friend request.

Yes, but so did many other people, meaning that you are not special, meaning that this comment has no relevance(you know this is about the 2005-7 version right?). Also, it's in 2014 ,not on.

I tried to email roblox, and they didn't help in the slightest, I'm not sure how we can find this without any real help from the company themselves :(

a friend of mine used the wayback machine and was able to get a launcher from 2005 (not joking) though it doesn't work because it's asking for a "roblox.cab" file which means we can't start up the client. There are also a few more pictures that can be added.

If anyone wants me to post a link of the client or pics i can

That's a setup msi from early 2007 you're talking about. Yes, it can't find the cabinet files required because they're no longer on roblox.com.
