So I recently got MV on Steam while on sale as a bundle. Been pretty fun using so far. Thing is, all other versions of RPGM are on sale too, including VX Ace. Is there any reason I should probably get Ace to or no since MV is technically a superior version?

only if you want the licences to use the RTP of the other makers.

You need to own both the maker you're making a game with and the maker that an RTP is shipped with in order to mix and match the different resources. Some people do this but if you have no interest in the other resources then there is no need to purchase multiple makers.

Like Andar said, it's useful to be able to use RTPs from all makers. Plus, when it's on sale it doesn't cost much.

Right now, I'm in an approximately equivalent position, psychologically, to a lot of people in the mid-00s to early 10s that had a powerful attachment to 2k3. Even if XP and later VX were clearly superior tools (which I don't necessarily think they even were), people still doggedly stuck to 2k3 (and were eventually rewarded, first by a fan-made total conversion that was the labor of years and years by very smart people, and later by Degica offering an official, supported English language version). That's kind of how I feel about VXA, even though MV is my main tool*. VXA as an engine will always have a special place in my heart.

I'm attached nostalgically to the RTP characters of the older makers, but the engines themselves...thank God for progress.

* I still HATE that it only supports .ogg files.

MV can't handle any sound format but .ogg. At least mine can't.

Yeah. I tried other formats and it doesn't really play. But that isn't a big issue for me as there are many free softwares you can use to convert files to ogg without losing quality. I think others have already said something about this issue elsewhere but anyways...
Back to the OP's question:
Go right ahead and use which ever RM you prefer. I personally prefer MV but sometimes would go back to Ace from time to time. But it's completely up to you. I mean some love the old school RMs and still continues to use them today even though they may be considered "obsolete" by others. So absolutely, it is completely up to you what you want to spend money on. :)

Um...assuming that's a question, you left off the question mark...buy...it...if you want? Like it can be bought from this very website you're on right now.

You should make your own thread instead of trying to hijack someone else's with a different question.

Since the original questions seems to have been answered, I'll go ahead and close this.

How do you do when you want to work on projects but the game companies make so many games available for free because of the quarantine?

I have just stepped down from being a Mod, so please don't send me any more pm's with Mod questions. Thanks
The laptop I've had for almost 3 years has blue screened and is stuck on a boot loop. Can't wait to make games on nothing!
Made a brief video showcasing early game play... Got a copyright claim by BIG UP! (https://big-up.style/) for using music I bought from here (Future Steam Punk Pack). Now I wonder if I should strip any purchased music from here out of my game. :LZSskeptic:

I'm not sure if I should open a thread for this in games in development..
