As some of you may know, there's an adorable little program called 'Desktop Ponies' which gives you the ability to have ponies running all over your screen on your computer....Some even make sounds and interact with other ponies! You can even add your OCs to it as well! I've already added one of my OCs and it's so awesome seeing him interact and follow around the other ponies.
EDIT (5/11):: The site is back up and running! Download Desktop Ponies here: www.desktopponies.com/
EDIT (5/12):: I zipped my program files and uploaded them to Sendspace....so maybe you can try to see if these work for you until the other site gets back in working order. www.sendspace.com/file/m2jfic
I added Chrysalis and some voices for her, Fancy Pants, Rarity, Mrs. Cake, Fleur, Braeburn and more!
(You need to click on the Twilight Sparkle icon for the application to start. Let me know if this works for you!)
Here's a video of my Desktop with a few ponies on it...There are tons to choose from, I just picked my faves: youtu.be/oMQEn6l766E
I wanted to start a list of some ponies that need trotters/flyers/etc icons for the program. They can be in the 50 x 50 size but they will need to be resized to 100x 100 if you add them, otherwise they're smaller than the fillies and colts.
I use this program to resize them: www.online-image-editor.com/
I also use that program to rotate them horizontally so you can have a left and right image when you add a new pony.
There are also other characters such as pets, Spike, Gilda, etc.
Please feel free to post characters that need icons for this little application below and I'll add them to the list. I'll strike through the name if I've found an animation. If you happen to find one or want to share an artist who has some amazing trotters, link it below please. I personally suck at trotters and flyers and other pixel ponies, but there are some amazing artists out there who might see this and help us out!
You can also do different animations of your favorite pony, other than walking, such as hopping or whatever you can think of. As you can see, some ponies do more than just trot or fly. Look at Vinyl Scratch, she throws a party with those beats she be droppin'!
