    This is fantastic news.


    I was just writing an email to my campers to consider holding out for a great sale to economize if necessary for their Ace purchase while they learned Lite, but this makes that unnecessary advice.


    Thanks very much for the great sale!

    This is my opinion of Steam summer/holiday sales.

    Curious.. if I have bought RPG VX Ace through Degica (sorry if that's not spelled correctly), will any resource packs I buy through Steam be useable with my Degica version of Ace both in terms of legality/licence and also in terms of where and how the files are stored/updated etc

    Steam wont let you buy resource packs unless you bought VX Ace on steam. So unless you buy VX Ace on steam, you can't take advantage of the 50% off on Resource Packs. This is because steam is registering the packs as DLC.

    Wow that is very lame I don't see why they would do that then, I don't think many people bought VX ACE on steam.

    Simple, to force you to buy the program from them assuming the buyer doesn't know that he has other venues to buy the maker and the packs...

    I actually just found out that you can get a steam key for VX Ace (And therefore not have to buy it twice), this thread:
    http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/12335-steam-keys-now-available-to-previous-customers-of-ace/

    I had bought VX Ace through Steam when it was first available there, but this is for those that bought it and need it on their steam account to buy the resource packs.

    Agreed, some sale would be nice...the steam sale is more than the member+ discount.

    I bought my copy directly in the store here. At least I know most if not all my money goes to the good guys of RPG Maker ;)

    Wish I could buy free time to play all my previously bought sales games...

    Our staff has evidently gone ghetto.
