We are in the same boat here, can't figure out what's up with it but MV will not run for me, so I'll stick with ace.MV still works crappy on my computer... ...and this is the only RPG Maker engine I have ever had any performance issues with (and my computer is not that old).
That said, there's nothing wrong with people moving on to the 'next, great thing' and what you need to remember is that ace didn't just suddenly lose it's script/resource support overnight because MV was released. I've been here (at this website) since ace first came out and will say that the influx of new resources began tapering off long before MV was even announced. That's just how things work, people mess around with their pet projects and such as long as they can, then when the limitations of older apparatus start becoming apparent and you combine that with the giant pile of resources that have been created since it's inception disincentivizing further work the creative thrills start to wane and people naturally start looking for 'the next big thing.'
It's simply more fun to create things for something new and different, where every new resource is created with 'wow, this is really needed and just what I wanted' than to create for an older program with tons of resources floating around already where the response is more likely to be on the lines of 'meh, I might find somewhere for this.'
