    I believe they're the about the same, but there's modifications between them, so they technically aren't the same license.

    VX has different battlers from VX Ace, though most of them resemble the battlers in VX Ace with some exceptions (VX's evil king and evil god battlers are very different from VX Ace's, for example). So I'd imagine you'd need a VX license to use those battlers in the other engines.

    Besides that, I'm pretty sure the rest of VX's RTP is included with VX Ace. I imagine you'd only need VX Ace to use them, as it feels kind of silly to need VX to legally use resources included with VX Ace, but I'm not certain.

    Here is the question: Do you want to use VX MIDI BGM (or the converted one) in your game? :p

    I'm just asking around because the Steam Winter Sale should be coming up soon and I was wondering if VX was worth getting over VX Ace. I may have about $40-$60 to spend on this years sale, so I hope both go for total under that if I am lucky. (I plan on having every RPG Maker eventually, as I just need VX, VX Ace, and 2k3 to finish the set)

    Will probably be less than 40$ if you get them both during a big sales period.

    @MushroomCake28 Considering I am only 10ยข shy in my current Steam wallet of getting 2k3 on its usual sale price, I could probably get all 3 RMs for under $40 on the Winter Sale.

    Reason to buy VX
    > you want to use the MIDI BGM
    > completionist
    > you want to use VX Cliff tiles (it's different than Ace)
    > Maybe the battler as well?

    I primarily want to finish my RM collection.

    Unless you specifically want the assets (&/or are a completionist) do not bother with VX. Ace upgraded it, so VX on its own is just a poor quality version of Ace.

    There are some Japanese resources that state you can only use them if you own VX. (That's the only reason why I bought VX to begin with).

    I guess I am sort of a completionist, so I'll prioritize VX Ace and 2k3 during the Winter Sale and if I have enough money left over, I'll get VX as well.
