VX ACE[]

RPG Maker VX Ace (short RMVXAce, RMAce, VXAce or simply Ace) is the latest version of Enterbrain's RPG Maker series.

Although the name suggests that Ace is an add-on to VX, its predecessor, Ace actually is a new stand-alone engine. This is emphasized by the fact that you cannot open any VX projects in Ace (or the other way around).

You can find a list of changes from VX to Ace here.

You can, however, update your game from RPG Maker VX to Ace with a conversion program found here.

Structure[]

Ace consisty of three basic parts:

  • the Map Editor, where you can create and edit maps and events.
  • the Database, where you can change game options, create items, skills, actors, enemies, and more.
  • the Script Editor, where you can edit core scripts or add your own.


Release[]

Ace has been released in Japan in stores at December 15th, 2011, and was later made avialable as a download from the japanese amazon site.

An trial version of the engine has been released in japanese, which is not time-limited, but lacks some functions of the full version. It was also translated into English through a translation package.

A US version has been released on March 16, 2012 with a 30-day trial. People who pre-ordered received a $15 dollars discount, a DS-Graphics addon, and many more songs and items. [1]
