Well, I voted "I'll pass" since:
A) I like 'em both,
B) there's been a lot of stuff being added to both branches lately - not only bugfixes; but all sorts of general-usage features in 1.4; and in 2.0, NPCs out the wazoo -
C) people seem to keep forgetting that, eventually, PGE's engine will get finished and playable, and then both SMBX 1.4 and SMBX 2.0 are in danger of becoming obsoleted once the PGE config packs for their stuff get made/converted.
So, uh, yeah. Staying kinda neutral for the moment. >_>
Well I changed my vote from "38A" to "I'll pass" because now I actually liked both versions and due to the current progress of beta 4 of SMBX2, I just wanna see and test those new incredible features in it's release ! And due to them I wanna remake my SMBTGA project for the 2.0 version (It will also use some LunaLUA scripts).
I support these projects:
Hey there! Come see my projects! (Currently WIP):
tbh, i wish more people votes for i'll pass instead of those two options because i think the war should be fucking end

i'll say the real answer: both have good points and bad points. they heven't growt the same way.
everyone have their own needs and expectations about a level editor. because of that, we can't agree to decide wich one's the best.
i think that the debate shouldn't stop but change
we should create a post that explain the differences between both games, not to determine which one's the best but to talk about those differences and allow new people to know wich one's gonna be the best for them.
i can't start this post because i'm not enough used to smbx 2.0, so i would not be able to explain it.
it's only my opinion, i can't force anyone to adopt it
2.0 doesn't run on shitty hardware like my 1gb ram laptop, so I choose SMBX 38A.

2.0 by a long shot because of how quick and customizable the editor itself is as well as having a ton of more stable features that are built upon the original engine, the MX3 build of smbx 2.0 already is an impressive upgrade from beta 3 in sheer content alone;
38a just feels off in every way possible, the physics are all wonky, the new items are jank, and so on and so forth, i just don't find it a polished and always improving experience like 2.0 is.
of course, this is just my opinion;
it's hard to compare something that's built upon the original engine with something inaccurate and made from scratch, kind of like a bootleg, imo
My latest SMBX episode
I respect your opinion, but the way you say it bothers me a little. I will not discuss your affirmations (because as I said, it is your opinion and I respect it), but I will ask you to try to be more respectful and neutral with your opinion since it could've been better.
It's not the same saying
(Please don't take my examples as my opinions since I don't think about SMBX2 characters that way)
Even through my second statement is a bit exagerated, my point is that it doesn't encourage a healthly conversation. It rather seems like I'm just throwing salt at it.
You may say I'm overreacting to it, but it gets my attention the way people generally speak about SMBX 1.4. It would be just better if people expressed themselves in a more neutral and respectful way.

I think, it's time to finish this discussion. Mainly because it's a source of missinformation about both sides (SMBX-38A and SMBX-2) which isn't good especially for newbies. Mainly because people are telling their opinios which aren't showcasing actual overview and in most they are guessing.
