First, my first language is not English, and I will describe this with my poor English, I hope you guys understand what I mean.

I want to ask : If Im published a Game with RMMZ engine for pc and android, then the player already finished my game.
After that I update the game and released a new feature to the game such a new map, new feature on the main menu, new weapon, monster, etc. then player want to continue with their saved game files, will it match to updated game or not? or even will causing a crash?

I hope someone can answer this, thankyou :)

It depends. You can add new maps and add items usually without a problem.
But you cannot add new plug-ins that adds new stuff to the game. Those will break and crash the game because the program will be looking for code that don't exist in your save game.

You might need to be careful if you put new things on a old map too. Because the player might have saved their file while standing on an empty spot that now has something in it and causing them to get permanently stuck there in the updated game.

Hi, I'm a new and upcoming Indie Developer, and I could really use some help when it comes to system programming. Explorers can only go so far before needing a map, you know?
I made a comic strip with the characters of my game.Flor en la cola eng.jpg
Hey, what does it mean in settings, privacy, where it says allow users to: view your identities??????????
I have returned yet again. No reason for my hiatus; just got distracted by video games and stuff. I figured out how to make a bootleg Ys 1 Battle system using in engine scripting (The only plugin enabled is the HUD thing).
Unfortunately I have no idea how to program but-stabbing as a crit without it being even more complicated to program so this is it.

Kickstarter successful!! I'm gonna have a Hot GameDev Summer in the trenches!
