So I have the Steam version of RPG Maker VX Ace and I got a new computer that I haven't used RPG Maker on before now (both my old and new computer are Windows 10 but the new one has better specs). Anyways, when I try to open my game project that I've been working on for years now it just crashes and Steam freezes and eventually shuts down. I have other smaller games that I loaded in and they open fine, it's just this one particular game project that crashes it. The same files on my old computer work just fine.
I've seen similar issues posted on the Steam page and tried doing some of those fixes (installing the RTP, whitelisting it from my antivirus) and those didn't do anything to fix it. I set it to be able to run as an administrator and that time, RPG Maker crashed but Steam was working just fine.
What can I do to fix this? Thanks!

If you got a new computer, chances are that a number of your drivers are out of date. Specifically check the manufacturer website (not Microsoft) for drivers for your audio and video cards and download the latest ones from them.

As far as I can tell, all my drivers are up to date. If there is a specific one that I need, I don't know what it is.

If you bought a new computer and you did not manually update your drivers, then your drivers are not up to date. You need to go into the hardware settings and determine what brand audio and video cards you have, then go to those sites and look for driver downloads.

All my drivers seem to be up to date. Like I said, some of my game projects open and can be worked on just fine but the one I want to work on crashes RPG Maker even though it doesn't do that on my old computer.

EDIT: I double-checked all my drivers and updated the few that were a little out of date and it still won't open. I don't know what to try now. Please help.

I finally got it to open after emailing RPG Maker Support directly. I was told to go to it on Steam, right-click, select Properties, go to Betas, and then make sure it's "Original non Workshop version". After that, it updated and my project opened and works just fine.

Finished reworking the design of my Itch.io page <3 Back to making plugins.
I kind of want make a map that's just giant version of the player that's they're running around on. Either by stringing together multiple maps or just by shrinking the player sprite for those maps. Actually that might make a fun reveal... The player's on a normal looking map, but then as realization dawns on them it zooms out to show a much larger map that's a giant version of the player. :LZSexcite:
Do you like to practice level design? I do hahahaha! It's not from a specific game, it's just some tests...Fase 1.png
I really need a better indicator of where you can jump up and down though I feel... otherwise I like how this turned out for the first part of the first dungeon of the game.
@Shaz needs to make a website for his plugins. (it can be done easily for free with google sites.) I can't find a database of them anywhere!
