    Hello.

    I bought RPG Maker MV and many other tools for MV before ( on https://www.rpgmakerweb.com/).
    Now, I want to buy some assets on Steam ( Battlers, Battlebacks,...). However, when I try to purchase it, it always report something like " you need to buy RPG Maker MV first, because these asset be use for RPG Maker MV.":rswt

    My God? So, I have to buy almost of these RPG Maker MV and tools on Steam again, just to buy these assets???

    Anyone know how to fix this trouble, please help me.
    Thank you, everyone.:kaocry:

    I've moved this thread to Product Discussion and Support. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.


    Unfortunately, it is Steam's doing that you have to own the engine to be able to purchase DLC through them. You would not need to repurchase all of your DLC to be able to use it in a Steam version, however. You would only need to buy MV through Steam.

    If you bought MV through the store here, your product key should act as a Steam key as well. You might try it and see if it works before purchasing it again.

    Just to add, also, in case this is useful - this applies all across Steam, so you can't buy DLC for a game/piece of software you don't own.
