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'!

Characters That Need Icons
Flitter
The Cake Babies (Pumpkin Cake and Carrot Cake)
Featherweight
Ponet
Shining Armor
Princess Candence
Queen Chrysalis fav.me/d4xlmnu
A Changeling
Barking Mad/Screw Loose
Roid Rage


If you have any questions, I can try to help as best as I can. Just comment below or Note me.

There's not really an easy way if you don't have programming skills. Alternatively you CAN make trot .gifs by downloading the base on :icondesktop-ponies: page! As far as I understand, you'll need photoshop to edit the base, though.

i'd suggest downloading v.1.42 (which you can find here [link])
if you don't want to do that you could take the chrysalis file from v.1.42 (here, [link]) and paste it with the other. character folders

when i click the link on the bottom it goes to this sight, that says "Sorry about that - this users free account has a 5gb data limit and that has been exceeded in a 24 hour period.

You may try again tomorrow, or if you are a paid member log in to retrieve it.

At Dropcanvas, we love you - but without these caps in place there would be no dropcanvas anymore.

Thanks for understanding." :(

I have to tell you, when I went to the site the DTP thing was on, I couldn't see it anywhere, all I saw was ads and other dodgy stuff.
So I went to the other one, sendspace, and I downloaded the file and stuff, but when I was installing it, it closed my internet and then I got a message saying that my computer had removed a trojan from my computer, and it said this multiple times.
So, fearing for my computers safety, I cancled the download and deleted the file, and when I went back on the internet, I saw that my default search engine (google) had been replaced with some obscure search engine, so I reset it back to google, and that's all that happened.

sorry if this has been asked before but how do you add in new sounds? I tried to just put in an mp3 I had via the editor and it errored on me. Not sure if it was too big or something so I wanted to know if there is something that needs to be done to the mp3's before hand?
