I have created a turn based strategy game/miniatures game that is similar in style to miniature wargames like Warhammer 40k, Necromunda, and Warmachine/Hordes. The characters' statistics and talents are represented by profile cards featuring art (used with permission) by some of the best artists in the fandom. Currently the game is playable over LackeyCCG as a plugin but I am looking for help to turn it into a standalone game (possibly with sprites or models to represent the characters on the board).

The theme of the game is a clash between the various realities of Equestria, such as Equestria: Total War (Equestria-Prevails' art), Fallout: Equestria, and various other visions of Equestria our fandom has created. The first set of cards is complete and mostly balanced after extensive playtesting. The next sets will also feature an option to allow players to request to have their OC's in the game (as long as they have a picture that suits the art style of the game), and have it made into a card. The rules for the current version can be found here:

I am looking specifically for programmers and sprite artists who could turn this into a standalone game. The features it would need are:

The ability to host and join games via a lobby system
A function to view the cards and put them into a herd to save and play with
A game board to move the figures representing the cards around on, preferably with snap-to grid (or just have the cards themselves, with a viewer window that shows the card when moused over)
A chat function
The ability to roll dice and record damage and counters for stat-tracking (like boosts from pony talents)

>MLP: Fighting is Magic - Thread XII

The guidelines:

- First. Let's try to keep the wildly Off-Topic stuff to a minimum. We don't mean to keep you from posting the unrelated comment once in a while, but when one beceomes twenty, it gets a bit hard for the DevTeam to spot important stuff and legit questions at a glance.

- Second. As with off-topic, let's keep discussion on gaming matches to a minimum. Commenting mechanics is okay, but commenting on particular matches only a few of the thread readers got to see confuses some people as of what's going on. Use discretion. If it's bound to become a 20 posts discussion on how awesome somepony's comeback was from the brink of defeat, it might be better suited for Skype. If it's just an one-off in-joke or witty remark, it could go in the thread, but, once again, avoid lengthy discussions if the subject matter can't be understood by reading the thread context, please.

- Third. Rarity is Best Poni. Then Twi, then AJ/Fluttershy, then RD and then Pinkie. Let's avoid "x is best poni" debates... Unless we're talking about gameplay, that is, in which Rarity is also -totally- going to kick everypony's flank... - Love. Anu

- Fourth. This one is more a comment than a guideline. We'll update when we've got something we consider worthwhile to post. We've explained several times why we prefer to do this over a daily/weekly log. Poking us will only result in getting distracted from actual development, thus, slowing the rate at which we put out updates. Don't worry. If the game were to be cancelled/delayed (and it's not), we'd be making an announcement about it on the site, not keeping silent about it.

Hello everypony, I'm making a PMV and am looking for some local singers to fill a couple parts.

Specifically, I am looking for 4 female vocalists, located close to the Twin Cities or Duluth areas in Minnesota. One of these vocalists needs to have a particularly strong, confident voice (think rarity)

I am keeping the details of this project a bit hush hush for now, but I will share the full details of this project with anypony interested in being a part of it via email and I can say that it is already well underway. In fact, I was not originally planning on recruiting any vocalists online, but it is taking a bit too long to fill these last few roles personally and I am hoping to have it done in time to enter in EverfreeNW's PMV contest.

So if anypony in the area is interested, please shoot me an email and I will send you all the details of the project.

Hi Everypony! So, I was wondering if anypony would like pony games made with Game Maker. I've already made 2, a clicking pony game:
and a RD platformer named Loyalty. So anyways, anypony actually use GameMaker on ponychan? Uhh, that was a lot of 'pony'...

Well, I've made a demo for Loyalty...
Please tell me if you find a bug or a mistake, please.
And, if you want to jump on all the enemies in the Boss Battle, then don't even try to get the one that is right where you jump on, that will be fixed next demo, along with other minor problems.

I made a game once upon a time called Winter Wrap-Up.
It's a gameboy styled game(I cheated a bit with the colors.) where you plow snow, till soil, and plant seeds while hoping Derpy doesn't ruin things.

I started on another project, so I stopped working on it and included the source.

Everfree Northwest stands to be the biggest gathering of Brony musicians ever. Great artists like Mic the Microphone, SCHADENFREUDE, Chain Algorithm, and more will be there to show off their talents. Over a thousands fans will gather to see voice actors like Tara Strong and Tabitha St. Germain. It will be amazing, and I want to document it. I have a small film crew and we plan to be there filming the entire thing from before it starts to after it ends. The entire documentary will be made available on YouTube. I've set up a small Kickstarter to help with the expenses (I plan on wining and dining everypony I interview). If you're interested in this convention and you're interested in the documentary, please check out the Kickstarter and consider donating. We hope to get inside the minds of these talented people who've been sharing their amazing work free of charge with all of us.

Hi /collab/!

With this survey, link lower, I plan to distinguish between true and made up stereotypes the society thinks about us, bronies. For many, we are just a bunch of horsefu**ers with unsolved child issues. I'm trying to prove them wrong.

I'm doing this research after seeing few links between results of the SCL-90 symptom checklist and membership in Brony subculture (just minor depressions, but still above average). I'm curious if this phenomenon repeats itselfs when applied to other groups and fandoms, so, although it's focused on bronies, I want furries, gamers, Otakus, /b/tards and pretty much everypony to fill it out.. Results, if interesting, will be published in traditional form of a picture containing graphs and tabels.

You can finish it in 15 minutes.

Thank you :)

So I have this idea for a cover of Discord... Here's what makes mine different: Instead of singing the verses, I'd like to have more of a rap style(which I couldn't do to save my life) with the chorus remaining pretty much the same, except I' be singing. I am looking for somepony with rapping skills to help me see this though. Help lease?
>> No. 39327
Can you post an example of your singing? The voice in this song is vocoded to the point of being nearly impossible without absolutely perfect breath control. I'm not saying you can't, I'd just like to see.

Me and two other bronies are developing a Visual Novel set in an alternate Equestria, where Discord wins and everypony but the mane 6 is 'Discorded' (we had a four hour discussion about the plot, characters, etc. I can post it if you want.) Basically, some things we made canon are:
1) It's anthro
2) Music prevents the Discordation (Ocatavia and Vinyl are still sane)
3) You can play as all the mane 6, so that you get the full story only by playing them all
4) Discord and Gilda are in it
So basically we need:
1) Writers, we only have one
2) Artists. Remember, it's anthro
3) Musicians
4) Programmers, I can do the basics in Ren'Py* but we need a GUI and might need some advanced stuff
5) Any other jobs that somepony could think of
Can you tell I like lists?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but here goes.

I'm working on a music video that will have a mechanical metronome in the shots. I'm wondering if anypony is particularly knowledgeable about metronomes and would know if I might run into a consistency problem wit the metronome.

The source of my concern is that I will be using the same metronome in several shots, but these shots may be recorded weeks apart. I don't know if the metronome will vary slightly in it's tempo at the same setting between recordings and mess up the synchronization of the shots. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
>> No. 39118
A good one won't, but even if it does, couldn't you just speed up or slow the video down to make it match? A small adjustment won't be actually visible to anypony
>> No. 39119
Hmmm... you know, you have a point. Any variances would be very small, so a minor speed adjustment could probably work just fine...
>> No. 39178
And you could always ask somepony with a good sense of timing if the video is off, before uploading it officially.

fellow bronies im not that great at building websites but are you not sick of going on youtube to and wanting to have a pleasent conversation on the pony vid, show only to see haters. haters complain there are 2 many pony videos even though they could easily ignore them. and bronies like the rest of the internet wish to be free of haters. Solution a ponytube or whatever you call it it a hater free version of youtube dedicated to all thing my little pony related. haters could be reported and banned so it will be rare to come across them and we will have all of our wonderful videos in one place. so i ask is there already a website like this that jus needs more attention or are some bronies out there going to help me get this off the ground. suggestions and improvements will be helpful

Thinking it through a bit more it would have to be per certain amount of users. My VPS is pretty powerful and can be easily upgraded but without knowing a rough estimate of how much traffic the site would pull it's hard to say how much upgrading my server would require.

HDD is a must, the VPS was only ever meant for and a couple of smaller sites so I originally purchased it with 40GB of drive. A pony youtube would need a lot more than that, I would want there to be a 10GB buffer as well, just to be safe.

My current bandwidth quota is 300GB/month, it would do for the first bit but realistically if it was ever going to take off 300GB/month is a pitiful amount of bandwidth. I have run a couple of image boards in my time and I know how easily they eat up bandwidth.

RAM could probably wait, I really don't know without starting the site and seeing how it went though.

It has oodles of processing power for the time being, but same with RAM, I have no experience with video uploading websites and what resources are used on what.

Also asking people to pay on a "we'll see how it goes" basis NEVER works out well.

Yea I can start to see issues with this idea.

For eg, the site goes live it's a huge hit, so much so my server begins to become overloaded, I ask for the money to upgrade the server and who evers idea it was to have a pony youtube refuses to pay, saying something along the lines of "This is what you quoted me, I paid it, and the site is running fine. Stop trying to suck more money out of me". *Fast Forward a couple weeks* I take the site down because it's dragging everything else on my server into hell and suddenly I'm hated because I tried to save my other websites.

Somepony who is better at marketing or something please explain the correct way to do it.

Hey there everypony. I am starting a podcast all about Pony Fanfiction, and might need another cohost, through I already have one. I also need a good name. I've sent invitations to 3 authors to be guests, two of which I've talked with before. (They being Moonshooter, Psychicschubadiver, and Pav Feira.)

The show would be formatted thusly:
-Guest answers following questions: Favorite pony? Favorite CMC? Favorite fanfic? Favorite genre? Least favorite genre?
-Cohosts and guest talk about either new pony fics or updates to older ones.
-Cohosts and guest talk about older pony fics that they recommend, or sometimes just ones that are fun to talk about.
-Cohosts and guest talk about non-pony fics.
Any suggestions for a name or how to improve the idea?

Thanks, that was part of the idea, and I think your idea of doing a theme for each episode works great!

so, I can write a bit, I'm a bass, baritone, and some other stuff singer who is willing to do work to produce and work on original music and pony covers. as soon as I can, I'll link my version of Find a Pet (singing both parts) in an effort to show some real experience. I'd love to help anypony out, to get my name out there, and this seems like the way to do it. anypony want a bass?

Hello, biddies and gentlecolts! It's Peachy here. I've decided that I've sat for far too long expecting a chance to use my voice to fall into my lap; therefore, I'm creating one. I've rewritten the lyrics of the Scarlet Pimpernel's "Creation of Man" to reflect a possible discussion between Prince Blueblood, Fancy Pants, and several other stallions of "noble blood." I'll be using a midi track to accompany the voices used simply because it's free and sounds nice enough.

I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS for the role of blueblood and all of the chorus (somewhere around 5 or 6 voices). I''d like submissions sent in any easy-to-access audio file format to the email listed in my email field, also listed here ([email protected]). If that for some reason doesn't work, I'll let you know, but it should.

It's IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER that I will not choose the singers I use based on who sounds more like show ponies or Blueblood, but on vocal/choral talent. Therefore, don't force anything you don't have down with full confidence. Just sing your best!

Here's a link to the documentation of the lyrics, several free links, the free-use midi I'll be using, and the like. Feel free to peruse.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I apologize that I'm diving head in without much introduction here, but I'm just so excited for this that I can't help myself. Thanks again for your time and I hope to hear your wonderful voices soon.

Looks great, I'll definitely participate.

But I'm a bit confused on how to record itand stuff...I mean, do I just record myself doing each of those parts all together? Or separate by color? And I can't really tell where the open parts are in the song with the link given. (honestly I'm not familiar with the song, so maybe I need to listen to it more)

Listen to it a few more times, the voices will make it more distinct, however;

Red is blueblood's, which is an open role
the blue-backgrounded text is for the chorus to sing, all open spots

Blue is the only thing taken and it's because I would like to play that role. I WILL still take submissions for it, though I'd be hard-pressed to give it up, lol.
