What Causes Roblox Error 267?
There are many reasons for the player to get Error Code 267 and hence get kicked out of the game. Roblox is not responsible for causing this error. The most likely culprits behind it are the game and elements related to the player.
The most likely and common reasons are listed below:
Empty game or Missing Assets: The game and the game developer cause this issue. The player will see this error when the developer has not built anything. This error also occurs when the game assets are missing or corrupt or the loading components of the game are broken. The player can do nothing to fix any of these, all of these are game issues, and the game developer is responsible for them.
Account Ban: There are two types of bans on Roblox, one is game specific, and the other is a platform-wide ban. Game-specific bans revoke a player’s access to a specific game. Meanwhile, the platform-wide ban restricts the player from accessing Roblox, stopping them from playing everything on it. The player can get banned due to the use of exploits, hacks, injectors, or scripts to cheat in the game. Many games have admin scripts to ban the player from that game. If the player gets banned from Roblox, they can get it revoked by contacting support. So, if the player attempts to play a game they are banned from, they get this error code.
Faulty internet connection: The player might also encounter this error code when there is a faulty internet connection.
