Is it me or does it feel like everyone is abandoning VX 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).  
   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.

   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.'

I'm still determined to finish making at least one game with Ace before I buy another thing that requires the same amount of free time with a new learning curve, and creativity and motivation are fickle mistresses.

I have MV, but I prefer Ace over it. I understand ruby a lot better than JavaScript, I also have access to a lot more resources in Ace.

And my project at this point, is way too big to convert to MV. It would take almost as long to convert it as I would making it. I would have to convert all the resources I used, find scripts, or teach myself java to rewrite all of the scripts I'm using (which could take years of learning just for a small project), and I'm a lot more comfortable with the smaller resolution. It's easier to make my own resources, IMO, in a smaller resolution than big resolution.

Also, I still make resources for Ace. I actually have some I made I just haven't posted, yet.

I've started the first steps of the final few maps that I need to make for B:ms. I haven't been able to say that in a really, really long time. It'd probably be a good idea to blog about this or something.
Question for the Mods: What am I supposed to do when I can't make a synopsis 350 words long? (for project recruitment thread) @Shaz @mlogan
The game is meant to be more on the simple side in order to be achievable so I'm a bit stuck...
