What is error 529 on Roblox?
Error 529 on Roblox means that the game is experiencing technical difficulties.
If you’re getting the error message when you’re trying to join a game/experience, it means that Roblox is most likely down.
There are two ways to check if Roblox is down.
Firstly, you can visit downdetector.com/status/roblox/ and check the number of reports.
If there is a sudden increase in the number of reports, Roblox may be down for everyone.
Secondly, you can check the status of Roblox here: https://status.roblox.com/.
If there’s a “Service Disruption” or a “Degraded Performance” status, it means that the game is experiencing downtime.
However, the Roblox status website is normally not accurate as it only tracks major errors, so Down Detector might be more accurate.
