Oh my god, someone finally made them.Best. Night. Ever~
<-- MFW Rainbow Dash, Derpy, and Fluttershy are flying around my screen. This is simply amazing.
4 tabs of Ponies in Internet Explorer, 3 Pony folders open, Ponies open in Photoshop, and now Ponies flying all over everything on the screen!*ODs on Ponies*
Wait.People use those desktop backgrounds I made?I was unaware of this.
@FasterThenRainbowsYou could also be watching ponies while doing all of that.Also, Internet Explorer? What a shame. ~Scratch
THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!
Eventually there's gonna be a pony-themed internet browser, I just know it.
@Anonymouschrome/ff has themes already
These things are awesome, I've got Dash flying around my screen. I think I can become slightly less of a closet Brony with this thing. Someone'll see it, be all "What's that?" and I'll be like "Oh, Rainbow Dash." And then I might try to explain it if they ask more about it.Either way, I really hope they come up with an Earth Pony or Unicorn version of these fairly soon, so I can get mah Pinkie Pie on. Seth, if you get an update telling you they've added them, please bump this blogpost.
Alright, I got derpy, dashie, and fluttershy. I really hope the rest of ponyville gets done in due time.
I'm making Twilight as I type this. :D But Derpy keeps landing on the "save" button. I think she's afraid she's going to get replaced.
I may just have to try this!@AnonymousFirefox would be perfect for that - just change the animal involved. >_> Firepony! It probably wouldn't be that hard to do a Firepony theme.
Oh... Oh my. These ponies really DO drive me to insomnia. When in the world did it become 6 AM?Anyway, Twilight is made. :D I don't know how to post a link on that Ponychan site, though. In fact, I don't know how to post there at all. Any help?
@Jebin Zedalu, nicely done... I now see a teleporting Twilight on my screen. Next teleporting Rarity and Trixie. Then top it off with Pinkie ballooning. Applejack can just run everywhere.
I would love nothing more than to have Applejack accompany me as I go websurfing, but there's no way I could manage her hat in sprite form. D: I hope someone comes and gits-er-done.
I have so many Parasprites on my screen... I originally started with 5... But now I think there are MORE...Nope... Nevermind, still 5...Also, I wish the ponies would stop huddling in the corners... I THINK THEY ARE KEEPING ME CONFINED TO THIS PAGE O___oI love this though... So much.
Oh my, Ditzy would you stop distracting me? I'm trying to work here!This stuff is awesome!Just hope nobody combines Desktop Ponies and Stressreducer...
Oh man, that is awesome.Too bad I'm a Linux user.
The new Twilight is pretty neat. I wish the teleport animation wasn't a little white star though, its hard to see on my white desktop.
@Anonymous:I don't think Rarity can teleport, she'd probably just strut fashionably around.Trixie, maybe teleportation, maybe levitation, maybe just having Snips & Snails carry her everywhere.
I cant get the RAR files to work...
@Anonymous other on RAR files.Extract to get the files working and make sure that you pull the folder from within the folder.
Hey guys. Author here. I'm surprised you guys are so enthralled over a simple app. :)I posted a new link in the thread to a new version with some bug fixes to some VERY EMBARASSING bugs.It also now includes the rainbowdash, fluttershy, and twilight others have made (thanks!).(Have you linux and max guys tried MONO? I might work...)(p.s. here is the link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=CPYO4HA2
@AnonymousHehe, neat. I don't suppose it would be possible to put in "behavior chains", where one behavior will always be followed by another? It would be nice to be able to have Twilight stop to use her magic before teleporting, rather than just suddenly bolting across the map.
@Jebin ZedaluOh my. Maybe. Sounds simple enough.But I'm afraid if I keep adding stuff I will never stop. I was actually thinking of a "Muffin Mode" were you use the "take control" option and you have to dodge muffins flying at you from everywhere....Then I stopped myself and said "WAIT. Ponies. On the desktop. That's it, or you'll go crazy."
The desktop ponies make luna sad according to OPI'm not sure if I want to make luna sad =(
I think the only reason that the desktop ponies make Luna feel sad is that Luna has been left out, as she oft seems to be. But if we make a Luna addon for this, then she shan't be. She will be there with everyone else, invited to roam on the desktops of the worthy and righteous!And I, for one, would welcome either one or many Lunas to my digital home away from home. So hopefully some incredibly talented sprite artist (you know who you are!) will make this so!
@Jebin ZedaluSee, this is what I was afraid of. I couldn't get the "linked behaviors" out of my head, so I went ahead and implemented them. See Derpy's new config file for an example.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=T97R0JWU
@AnonymousMwuahaha, excellent!I don't quite understand how it works just yet, but I'll figure it out soon enough. Then, properly-animated Twilight!Though I'll wait to see what Eight Ball does with the teleportation first, to see if it's even necessary.
@Jebin Zedaluhttp://www.megaupload.com/?d=XBPBPBLH..i spoke to soon. There was a bug. This version (1.03) should work.
@AnonymousI seem to be having problems getting it to work despite the fix. D: I may just be doing something wrong on my end, though. Any chance you'd be willing to review the code I have set up and see if you can spot a problem? It looks to me like it should be working, but that's obviously not the case. XD
@AnonymousIt works... kinda. The characters are enclosed in windows (with frames) larger than the ponies, having opaque magenta backgrounds. The windows move around or can be dragged, but close is disabled. They don't seem to be animated except every once in a while like if they change direction. Closing the original "give me ponies" window doesn't get rid of the ponies so I just kill the task manually.Details:Desktop Ponies 1.03KDE 3.5Wine 1.2.2Mono 2.6.7Screenshot (what a mess, I need to clean up all that crap on my desktop!):http://sadpanda.us/images/429264-T1DRTN3.png
@calamariQuick update: unchecking "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows" (Graphics tab of the Wine Configuration) got rid of the window frames. And also right clicking to Quit (etc) works.
If I run straight through Mono (without Wine) it can't find the pony.ini files for some reason.. trying to figure out why.
@AnonymousAha, figured it out (thanks for including source). You are assuming a backslash is the path separator. Use Path.DirectorySeparatorChar instead. Changes:Line 121:Dim config_file_name = folder & Path.DirectorySeparatorChar & "Pony.ini"Line 233:newPony.picture = Image.FromFile(folder & Path.DirectorySeparatorChar & Trim(columns(6)))
Princess Luna Now!http://www.mediafire.com/?se2580fmyro509c
Someone make the rest of the cast! And moar ponies!
@AnonymousThe entire main cast is now in the Ponychan topic. A few of them are standalone downloads, though, not included with the program.There's also Princess Luna. From what I understand, someone is actively working on DJ PON-3 or whatever the name is, and there are some standing sprites for Lyra and Bon-Bon.
Could have sworn I posted a comment here.Anyway, the entire main cast is available now. Some of them are standalone downloads, not included with the program yet. There's also Princess Luna, as has been linked above, someone is working on DJ PON-3, and some work has been done on Bon-Bon and Lyra sprites.
@Jebin ZedaluSure, e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org@calamariPath.DirectorySeparatorChar, huh? Thanks for that. I'll see if there are any other bugs and update that in the next version.
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KD0CIUTD v1.05 with a bunch of changes.
@Anonymousupdate time: 1.06http://www.megaupload.com/?d=BSU69XOS 1.05 was very buggy...
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=BSU69XOSNew version. 1.06.

Aikes!Still not available for Mac. Too bad.
i made Bon-Bon, DJ Pon-3, and Lyra. :Dcurrently working on a remake for DJ, and then on to remake lyra.
You know they got a google doc for it. It has the updated version without having to search for it in the thread.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BiJFsPXhGg8Kx1N4uWMhQxocsDDNINAfgiYEpcJnNVo/edit?hl=en&authkey=CIzrj_gI&pli=1#
@2000cookiesWhoops, seems blogger failed to show me the comment up there ^
It's cool and all and I don't wanna sound like a douche but the quality is kind of lacking. They just can't compare to the smoothness of Shimeji.
Um, Rainbow Dash isn't Sonic Rainbooming for me, or even leaving behind a rainbow trail when she flies, any reason behind this?
@Rivet the Machinistsome pony NEEDS to make a collision effect for when characters run into eachother, example: Pinkie pie and rainbowdash (kinda obvious what they would do ) I don't know but it's an idea!
Just downloaded Zecora. She's animated beautifully, trotting very fluidly and pausing every now and then to stare at me. =3Only thing is, I think she might be making my computer a tad slower. Can someone fix this? D;
There are pixelated ponies on my screen. Life is complete.
Okay, I downloaded this,now how the heck do I get them on my screen?I downloaded the Java versions and I use a Mac.
@AnonymousThe readme file said that it was POSSIBLE to write make this using the problem, but it wasn't included yet.The new version, 1.14, actually has this :)
I want this but I don't know how to get it
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BiJFsPXhGg8Kx1N4uWMhQxocsDDNINAfgiYEpcJnNVo/edit?hl=en&authkey=CIzrj_gI&pli=1#go to that link to find the latest version
I cannot figure out how to use these, at all. Any help?
Just go to the desktopponies.co.cc site and download the latest version.
Some of the Individual PONY.INI files are a little messed up. I noticed Zecora, Aloe, and Lotus ( may not be the only ones, i have not used all characters ) refused to speak . . . . so after adding a few lines to Luna and Rainbow i noticed little ticks in front of the words speak in all of their files. Fore example Lotus and Aloe both had 'Speak,"Hi" When it should have beenSpeak,"Hi" After messing around, all you have to do to add more messages to them is just keep adding new lines under the old ones.Like for Lotus and Aloe they both had Speak,"Hi"so i added Speak,"Welcome to Ponyville Spa"Restarted the app, now they both say it n.n lolOH and i dont know if anyone noticed, but if you 'take control' of Twilight Sparkle, she has no animation for moving up and down, she just vanishes. Also does anypony else think its weird that when AJ runs it seems like she is litterally dropping "ROAD APPLES" behind her. Has anyone noticed that Pinkie Pie has and affinity to follow Rainbow dash all the time O.oPLS PLS PLS, add Applebloom! And younger versions of the mane cast. Young AJ is sooooo adorable n.n
Awwww. Zecora Dosen't say "You're Doomed." guess I'll have to make her say it by myself. AT LEAST she should say it when a parasprite goes near her.
more on topic,i have the princesses on my screen right now.
I have itt and its really great and fun!and you can use the spirtes for paint drawings! :Dor you can draw a background with MS paint and let the ponies play in itt! And iff you put pinkie pie and parasprites together pinkie will make misic and the parasprites will go to her. The only thing it needs is SOUND (and you schould be able to enable/lock itt.
I need the Cutie Mark Crusaders (Apple Bloom at least) NAO!!!!!!!!
This is jsut fueling the addiction.where are the rest of the CMC?Where is Dinkie Hooves?I can thing of so many things to add to this....wish I had the knowledge to make it all happen
This is amazing. When pinky says "Twitchy tail! Twitchy tail!" things should fall on twilight.
Decided to try this out to see how cute/interesting it is. Currently have Filly Twilight running around me screen.Pinkamina Pie pony is creepy, so mission accomplished I suppose.
Someone told me that DT pony has a keylogger inside it. Anyone know if this is true or not? My anti-virus and anti-spyware checks didn't find anything.
WHY DON'T I HAVE A DESKTOP VERSION?!Ooh, I'll have that big apple pie!
I already have a few ideas on more ponies/characters. Angel (the bunny), Rarity's cat, the filly versions of the mane cast. That's all I can think for now...-Jokiu
THIS is how my roomate found out I was a Brony. We're both programmers. He judged me more for the fact that I had a desktop pet up than the fact that it was My Little Pony.

How exactly do I make this work? I've extracted all the files, twice aleady to make sure it was done properly. I open the program and the box is blank, except for the buttons on the bottom. If I click the buttons, the while thing closes itself and a window pops up saying it has stopped working. Is there some file I'm missing or something?
This is awesome! It has so many side characters, I like that. But its missing Granny Smith! :(And I love how you can create anything for it, even if its not a pony. So technically someone could use this to make desktop pokemon or anything like that. awesome. :D
Is WindowPonies or DesktopPonies better? DP has Vinyl Scratch, but WP seems less buggy.
@AnonymousWhy U ruin my surprise?
Does anyone who's using the Java version know how to add new ponies to it? The download comes with all of the files but it doesn't show them.
For some reason, the website ( http://desktopponies.co.cc/ ) isn't loading at all for me... Can somebody tell me what's going on?
I hope the maker of this adds more ponies, effects, and also more control features so that you can activate an effect (i.e lyra jumping up and down can be the space bar) all that would be awesome :D
DEFINITELY GONNA PONIFY MYSELF! Cutie mark: Landau Iron, signifies my love of history and classic cars.
Help, my ESET antivirus recognize deskopt ponies website as a malware site ;(. I can't download them.
I was able to dowload it, but I can't get it to work... I don't get what I'm supposed to do! It's a zip and if I try to open it it's juz a bunch of folders and PNGs or GIFs.... :( what should I do?!
COMMON! i can't get it down right! i keep getting this different program...
me two! i can't get anything to work!
whats the link?
@Anonymousagreed most geeks perfer chrome since it has tiny stuff and big actual page, as well as backgrounds for us bronys, anyways about da ponies. its so lol, my grooveshark started to play reddy to die, while the mane 6 where doing the conga, imidietly ranbowdash broke sonic rainboomed and went to the farthest corner of the page and started sneeking XD funniest thing ever
@DuskWolfi love the update that totaly fixed this, luna has not only one but two forms on here now
I'm not sure whats going on it just brings me to this yellow page telling me to make a domain or something then when I click on this other link it says 403 forrbiden.............Confused
Umm.... can you, on your next update add Engineering Spark, see more http://www.facebook.com/EngineeringSpark
...The link. It's not valid. Wha happen?
Was the site taken down? Darn, you got my hopes up... :'c
Erm.... I cannot add any ponies, Its terribly flawed.
@Rivet the MachinistActually somebody already made something like this, it had all the characters including including some filly versions of the main characters.
They're gone! Oh noes! :c
Dagnabbit, the links be broken!'Twas Hasbro's copyright cops, I'll betcha.
i cnt seem to get the theme i just want the pinkie pie windows theme ;-;
