    I have been using RPG Maker VX Ace for many years but just recently I've been trying to finally put in work to finish my projects I started years prior. I've looked up tutorials and looked through forums in the past but I'm still not exactly sure on this. I've seen that there seem to be major differences between the programs. When I attempt to find something out about RPG Maker VX Ace, a lot of the things I want to do can only be done with RPG Maker MV. So my question is, what exactly are the differences between the programs or at the very least what is the difference between RPG Maker VX Ace and RPG Maker MV?

    Resolution: Tiles are now 48x48 Pixel instead of 32x32 Pixel
    Resolution Settings: You can choose to have more or less visible Map Tiles on the Screen
    1 automated extra Maplayer
    Bigger Editor Hud for readability
    No RTP support but still a mega pack of Resources included + Sideview Battlesystem and big Sprite Generator more advanced than the one in VxAce
    Games for Windows and for Browser maybe even for other Plattforms...
    Java Script instead of Ruby
    More Items in Database possible (2000 Items instead of 999)
    Pause and replay BGM Eventcommand
    Some other changes...
    Much stayed the same.

    also MV uses plugins while VXAce uses script, so alot is edit in the script,
    compare to MV using Plugins, they use the params, and or plugin commands/script calls to get them work.
    there are some things in MV that cant be done in VXA though or misses the options but need plugins
    to get it to work.

    If you update to MV, you might get alot of loss and need due loss of script remade/ported and alot of changes
    in the way it will be function again. So think carefully if you want it to MV or finish it in VXAce
    especially if its almost to the end or halfway finished.

    Adding to the list
    • You can't use MIDI in MV.
    • I'm surprised that no one mention about portability (Web, mobile, desktop, Mac, etc ...).
