RPG Maker VX Ace came out with everyone unanimously loving it. I, however, find it annoying to use. Sure it has a lot of shortcuts which make certain things easier, but I still find it to be just not as good. XP Pros over VX Ace Mapping in XP Scripting in XP Uses less system resources Works better on Windows XP Supports Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP Works better in Wine HQ for Linux (no sound but there are workarounds for Wine) Better RTP (I admit nobody uses RTP anyway...) Better mapping more scripts Better and more resolutions like 1024x768 and 1080p via scripts. Most I have seen VX Ace get to is 640x480 Animation is 30 FPS instead of 15. VX Ace engine defaults to 60 FPS then upscales animations which are only 15FPS this 60/15 glitches out in 640x480 unless yanfly core is used to up it to 60. XP is 30/30 across the board and a script allows for 60FPS on XP 60/60 H-Mode7 for true 3D support, VX Ace only does flat Mode7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BO_GZzrdE9Y RPG Maker XP uses true Ruby scripting and there are scripts which make games smoother and on par if not better than VX Ace VX (non-ace) works almost perfectly on Wine HQ though incidentally but VX Ace just crashes... VX Ace Pros over XP OGG Vorbis support out of the box Movie support re-introduced from 2k3 out of the box vehicles out of the box chests and other shortcuts out of the box More organization but unneeded mostly for anyone who has spent more than a month inside the editor. Things I kind of dislike about VX Ace: sample maps? I mean I get the need for newbies but if I want to play on sample maps I can character generator, but almost useless when you want to create other animations... and those creepy eyes staring into your soul... couldn't they make the pictures stare off to the right.... stuff of nightmares man. I find the pictures take away from the game rather than add to it. forcing me to use parallax mapping Charges me for additional map and chipsets??? Give me a break! Chibi Chibi Chibi!!! I HATE CHIBI! Don't get me wrong I am not bashing VX Ace, it is a great game creator! It just feels constricting. I like all the additions to the basic editor, but they all can be added to XP via scripts for half the price now. I feel very let down by the editor While there is a Character Generator in VX Ace, Game Character HUB, or Gimp makes it almost entirely pointless. Best $15 bucks I spent. Your thoughts? Do you prefer VX Ace for some reason I am not getting here? I own all 4 editors legally, 2k3 Japanese disk via Amazon, XP, VX, and VX Ace. I just miss the entire point of VX Ace.
