Another year, another thread - and as always even more ponies than before (Old Thread >>45984).

Also check out the OC thread for more ponies, and information about creating your own OCs:

Your can find the program source code on github:

Starlight Glimmer. I... don't even know why I made her, but here she is anyway:

In other news, fans of Equestria Girls might be interested to know that Maud Pie and Sunset Shimmer in her alternative outfit from the recent music videos are now both ready for download. Find them here:

When I try to download this on my mac it gives me an error that says:

Not sure what's happening there :/

Try rolling back to 1.52 in the meantime.
>> No. 47577
Cheers, I've added them all ready for the next version.

Suggestion that may help: Try deleting atk-sharp.dll, gdk-sharp.dll, glib-sharp.dll, gtk-sharp.dll and Mono.Cairo.dll from the 1.53 folder and running again.

Hey, uhhhh, any chance for a pony version of Sonata Dusk?
>> No. 47579
I'm still debating on that. Technically, pony versions of the Dazzlings aren't canon, so yeah, not sure yet. A very slim chance, maybe.
>> No. 47580
Oh goody! Now that a new season is starting, the party can now begin. Ohhoho!
I think I can start with my most favorite facial expression from the episode.
>> No. 47581
Oh, more sprites from you. I can hardly wait :D

Glad to see that you`re back in business, RD.
I`m still working on my thesis, so DPE`s on hiatus at least till July. «Done when ready», meh.
And I still can`t get a proper Mac to debug these damned 500 lines of MacOS dependent code.

If you have an admin user account on your Mac, go to

Macintosh HD/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.xx/etc (xx represents the version of Mono you have)

Right-click the folder mono and click Get Info, then go down to Sharing And Permissions and change the admin permissions to Read and Write. You may be prompted to type your user password. Do the same thing for the file named config in that folder. Open the file… you will see a bunch of text. Before the last line in the text, on a separate line, copy and paste these:

<dllmap dll="libgtk-win32-2.0-0.dll" target="/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.xx/lib/libgtk-quartz-2.0.0.dylib" />
<dllmap dll="libglib-2.0-0.dll" target="/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.xx/lib/libglib-2.0.0.dylib" />
<dllmap dll="libgobject-2.0-0.dll" target="/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.xx/lib/libgobject-2.0.0.dylib" />
<dllmap dll="libgdk_pixbuf-2.0-0.dll" target="/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.xx/lib/libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.0.dylib" />
<dllmap dll="libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll" target="/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.xx/lib/libgdk-quartz-2.0.0.dylib" />

Replace 3.xx with whatever version of Mono you have.
Save your changes. It should work now. I had this same problem but a close friend of mine helped me. :)

Do you plan to natively code Desktop Ponies for Mac? Mono is very glitchy.
>> No. 47587
In case you asked me: yes.
However, my project has nothing to do with the original codebase, therefore lacking the vast majority of the cool features of DP. Among the few things it does have at the moment are portability (500-700 lines of code for the OS-specific part per each OS family; the rest is cross-platform) and raw processing power. Look for «Windows 98» and «million» keywords in the previous thread if you`re interested.
It`s nowhere near finished, unfortunately. I already apologized for the lack of updates earlier in this thread.

BTW: you, unlike me, seem to own a Mac. If you know C or Objective-C and understand (or at least want to learn) how to use MacOS Quartz API, you`re welcome to participate in porting those 500 lines, which would mean native Mac support.

Here are Double Diamond, Party Favor, Night Glider and Sugar Belle.

Also, here's a small update for the Changeling, fixing a minor oversight in the pony.ini and correcting the colors of a few sprites:

Ooh sweet!!! :) What are some of the features missing, though? Also I have no idea how to code :P I wonder if my IRL brony friend knows how to do it… he helped me with that mapping problem.

Speech, interactions and behaviours (partially). In general, ponies just wander around the screen. ← this is the project`s repository. Currently the code can be compiled under Linux and Windows.
Linux version requires GTK2 and GTKGLext packages, the other requirements are available by default.
Just in case, I left an email address so your friend could directly contact me for questions on the project if he finds it worth porting =)

So if i want to update to 1.54, do I loose the stuff i customized in the older versions? Custom dialogue interactions i made n stuff.

Yes, for now, you'd have to carry your changes over manually.

At last, some (very early) working proof-of-concept of a native MacOS X composited window. See the attached rarpng.
No Objective-C because I already hate this language ._.

If you go to our deviantart group (link in first post), you can find templates and tutorials there.

Two new additions to my ever-growing collection of Equestria Girls characters. Find them here:

And to think this started as a small just-for-fun spriting project of the Mane 6 and spike. Still hard to believe that by now there are more than 50 characters available for download.

quick question can this be used on android based devices
>> No. 47607
I don't use ponychan, so sorry if I offend the actual group by replying.
For Android devices, download the .apk from
It seems to be an abandoned project, so not everything works as intended, but most things work pretty well with it.
Because it is abandoned, you cannot download new ponies directly through the app. Instead, download a few, so that your phone creates a ponies folder on your SD card. Then, download the zip from this thread and replace the contents of the ponies folder with the ponies folder from the zip. It's not perfect, but I like using it.
