A new RPG Maker is scheduled for release, entitled VX Ace, boasting new features and customizability. I’m in favour of a new one, especially after RMVX’s “failure”, but in truth I’m a little more sceptical about it. The major problem I have with RMVX is the tileset limitation, although by the sounds of it that won’t be a problem any more.
Here’s the English promo video, uploaded on the 10th of this month. (Since I’ve been offline, therefore out of touch, I’ve only just played catchup!)
From what I can gather it’s basically RMVX with a lot more features (including some of the omitted ones), including character customization and “finishing” moves for battles, as well as an upgraded RGSS (RGSS3).
I’ll be posting more about RMVXA a bit later. But, trust me, I’ll be watching this one very closely!
