I've been using vx ace for quite a while now, but I think it's finally time for me to make the change, but which version of RMMV should I start with? I know that MV have received a lot of update, and usually not all version will be compatible with some plugin. So should I go with the latest version or use an older version, and in that case, which one should I use?

I've moved this thread to RPG Maker MV. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.


They are all very similar, so it's not completely different versions. There are many updates, and each improve the engine, the game, and fix bugs. If you're starting a completely new project, always pick the latest update, meaning version 1.6.1 or 1.6.2. Most plugins still work on the latest update, especially those made by big coders like Yanfly.

in Grim Trigger episodes 3 & 4, the main characters play a Clue rip-off board game called "My Beating Mystery" (haha), so of course I had to draw the board for it. Can't decide if I wanna add blood or not
Jeez...
