Recently I’ve been made aware of EasyRPG and I’ve known about the Maniac patch before, although I can’t say I really know *exactly* what the Maniac patch offers or how well it works.

But as somone who’s looking to make a game in the official STEAM version of RM2K3 in 2021, and hopefully release this game commercially (on STEAM… and maybe other platforms too?), what kind of engine “version” should I develop in? What are the pro’s and cons when comparing the two?
Can EasyRPG work with the maniac patch, or do I need to pick one over the other? Which one have YOU picked for your game (and why?).

I figured it might be a hassle if I changed my mind further into development so better gather the knowleadge and make a decision now.

I've just installed it a few days ago. I haven't used it much yet. From what I understand Maniacs Patch doesn't work with EasyRPG, but they might be working on changing that. Here's the last page of the rpgmaker.net thread about Maniacs, apparently last month it had a huge update: https://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/24260/?p=5#posts

And here's a video of a custom menu that was made with Maniacs:
In my limited time with it, I'm going with Maniacs. I just wish there was a little more info out there on it.

It seems I'll be leaning into the Maniacs patch then. I recently got recommended it from another source as well.

EasyRPG might only be the better choice if one wants multi-platform porting possibilities (although, I'm not quite sure how well that works)? And well, EasyRPG is also super simple to apply so I guess it got that going for itself too.

PSA: please stop putting the word 'Eternal' in your game titles.

I kinda spent the day having my own little gamejam and came up with this Catastrophe!
