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If you got a new computer, chances are that a number of your drivers are out of date.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EDIT: I double-checked all my drivers and updated the few that were a little out of date and it still won't open.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.

My mind is now broken. I just spent over an hour on this stupid issue.
Trying to get a skill to show text depending on enemy ID to show passives.
Well. I tried to call one passive 'Spirit's Way'. See a problem? No? Neither did I until now!
The apostrophe in "Spirit's" ended the text eval... no wonder I kept getting unexpected input errors...I think I'm gonna cry.
Anterograde Fantasy now has a demo build available!

You know you've been working on RPGMaker for a while when you go to move your projects to a 16 GB USB drive and get told not enough space to do this operation.
The latest post on TheDazzlingsAreBack...
