RPG Maker VX Ace is a software development program designed for creating RPG games. It was developed and published by Enterbrain in 2011 as a successor to RPG Maker VX from 2007. It was succeeded by RPG Maker MV in 2015.

Features[]

It is generally similar to RPG Maker VX. The ability to use multiple tilesets, a feature missing from RPG Maker VX, is included. New features included with RPG Maker VX Ace include a character generator, Ogg Vorbis music being included in the RTP instead of MIDI music, and the ability to play Ogg Theora-format movies.

By default, there are now eight stats, and the stats have been renamed to MHP, MMP, ATK, DEF, MAT, MDF, AGI, and LUK.

Some changes to the database have been made. Users can now define a maximum level for a character. In addition, stat curves are defined per class, not per character. Instead of selecting which equipment a class can equip, equipment have types, and the types of equipment that a class can equip is selected by editing features of the class, making it faster to change equipment availability at once.

Users generally consider RPG Maker VX Ace as "the definitive version" of RPG Maker VX due to similar name and features, as well as VX Ace having more features than VX. Despite this, RPG Maker VX projects are not compatible with RPG Maker VX Ace and can't be converted in the way that RPG Maker 2003 can convert RPG Maker 2000 projects, and scripts from the prior edition cannot be used on VX Ace and vice versa.

Reception[]

Generally, it is taken as a superior version of RPG Maker VX due to their similar name and feature set, and additional features that RPG Maker VX does not have, such as the ability to use multiple tilesets.

Trivia[]

  • The initials in the names of the default actors for new RPG Maker VX Ace games spell out "ENTERBRAIN" (Eric, Natalie, Terence, Ernest, Ryoma, Brenda, Rick, Alice, Isabelle, Noah).
