Hi. I don't know if this is the right place where to post this. It's a question.
I know that RMMV will came out for Switch (and PS4 I think...) and I have the license of RMMV for PC/MAC.
If I want to use it into my switch I have to buy it again? I hope not.

The console versions are not the same as the PC version, so yes they will need to be purchased.

Not only will you have to buy it again, it probably won't be cross-compatible (a project made on PC won't be able to run on switch). Because of that, the PC version is vastly superior because of the ability to have third-party assets and plugins.

I wouldn't even bother with it. No plugin support and limited resources? No thanks.

Plus, you'll have to listen to this godawful music every time you load up the editor. Who wants that?

You have a license for PC and Mac.
Is Switch a PC? No.
Is it a Mac? No.
Do you got a Switch license? No.
No false hopes are given here.

Its also not published by the same company, so there's no way keys would be given to MV owners. Why would they? They didn't sell the original engine.

If you do buy it and run into troubles, you also won't be able to get support here, because it's not part of the Degica product lineup. You'll have to see who the distributor is and what kind of support community they've got running.

Sorry, but like @bgillisp and @Shaz said, you will not be able to get the game for free if you have the PC/Mac version, and you will also not be able to get support here, as Degica doesn't have rights to the console ports. Also, I highly recommend against getting this version as there is no custom assets, cross-support, or any way to transfer your PC projects or vise versa.

We do not discuss engines not made by Degica on this forum. I should know better. Closing and cleaning this thread.

Redesigning characters after such a long time feels great. Makes me excited to work on an old game again.

It's been that long since I wrote a plugin, it took me 4 attempts to realize it's != rather than #. In a 40-line plugin, 20 of those lines being documentation!
