I <3 ponies! Also I can't wait for the next season to start!

When does season 5 start? I heard something like early 2015...
Title: Re: Ponies

Yep, something like early 2015.

Well, time for past-season catch up!

Wasn't there also a new movie in the works too?
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 15, 2014, 11:10:33 am
Hmmm I don't know if I'm really excited about ponies anymore. :( We'll see how season 5 and the new movie go.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 16, 2014, 05:25:42 am
Aw sorry to hear. But again, I'm not one to talk considering I am the only person on this board (as of November 16th) to never have been a brony at one point or another. :P
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: pimathbrainiac on November 16, 2014, 12:07:40 pm
That with what DJ said about sorry to hear. I didn't keep up well with the last season, but I still watched most of those episodes. that counts as still excited, I guess.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 16, 2014, 12:35:59 pm
I was excited about s5. Then anime happened. :P
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: pimathbrainiac on November 16, 2014, 01:46:13 pm
Why not both? I watched FMA while watching season 5.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 17, 2014, 03:34:48 am
I personally don't watch TV shows very much. I watched MCOG but that's pretty much it. I need to watch a few episodes of MLP at one point, though. Do you need to watch from the start or can you watch random episodes like with The Simpsons?
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on November 17, 2014, 01:50:25 pm
Well, I guess you can watch random episodes, but there's a few key episodes, like the season premieres and finales and the fact the entire 4th season is a story arc (well, I mean, episode 1, 5 random key episodes and the season finale follows each other).
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: pimathbrainiac on November 17, 2014, 02:15:31 pm
It's true, which is why I have to do some serious catch up. I want to be ready for season 5 (which may or may not have an arc).

Because anime is over 9000 times more epic. :P Not that I dislike MLP but I'm not as much into it as before because anime eats all my time.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on November 17, 2014, 06:31:32 pm
And yeah every season follows each other, kind of, due to statu quo-changing stories (Twilight getting her wings, then her own castle).

Post by: Streetwalrus on November 20, 2014, 01:19:58 am
So I was going through my Firefox tabs to find stuff to post in the NSFW telegram group and found pics from this : http://www.zap-apple.com/

Sounds so epic I wanna play it.

Also I'm totally back into MLP. :D
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on November 20, 2014, 05:31:12 pm
Yeah I played Starswirl Academy since when it came out and the characters still had their original names from the show, it's pretty awesome :P
Title: Re: Ponies

Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 21, 2014, 09:37:10 pm
I checked out the beginning on my phone but there's an annoying graphical glitch every time the characters or background change (doesn't make the game unplayable at all but it's distracting).
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on November 21, 2014, 09:54:04 pm
I can't play it on mine, it crashes right after the loading screen ._.

Also gonna see Rainbow Rocks again tonight with a few friends, it gonna rock. And that's why I'm not gonna be on a lot tonight. ._.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 21, 2014, 10:02:09 pm
Oh that sucks. I might wind up playing the PC version though because of this bug.

And have fun with RR. I'm looking forward to it and season 5 too. I hope they meet my quality standards lol, because they raised a lot since I've started watching anime. :P
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 21, 2014, 11:45:23 pm
Is it a visual novel game? From the pics it looks like it but I wasn't sure.

Yes it's a VN and it looks really nice. :)

Joking aside, I wonder if someone could make some sort of TI-84+CSE xLIBC visual novel or a TI-Nspire one about MLP...

And yes that would definitely be awesome. I wonder if calc84maniac's Steins;Gate 8bit is open source (though we could probably ask him) so that we can reuse the engine for other VNs.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 24, 2014, 03:12:29 pm
Yeah it would rule. It would be hard if there's no vector graphics available, though, because you would need to draw everything yourself then import the vector data. You could always use regular bitmaps but it would be very huge. >.<
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 26, 2014, 12:41:34 pm
Not necessarily. You can also use low res paletted bitmaps and then it would be small enough. I guess. The problem is that even if there's already vector gfx I think calc84's renderer uses a special format plus they would be too detailed.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 30, 2014, 06:53:08 am
This is not directly related to the cartoon, but to avoid cluttering the forums with full of MLP topics I thought I would repost this nice eurodance/italodance song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UL5WzF5seQ

The video says it's italo-disco but it's not really the case unless you include eurobeat in the genre, since the song has a bit of eurobeat elements too (italo is more like You Spin me Round and Colder than Ice)
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 30, 2014, 09:32:56 am
Wow this one is really awesome. :D

Also this one is great :

Title: Re: Ponies

Eurobeat Brony and Delta Brony (KingSparta38) are both pretty good at eurobeat remixes of MLP songs.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 01, 2014, 06:27:47 am
@Street I like that one. It seems to have a bit of dubstep and italo disco influence, btw.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: unknownloner on December 03, 2014, 05:54:21 am
On the subject of a CSE visual novel... I can write ASM code if others can provide artistic talent (and story writing talent if it's an original story). As far as vectors go, I'm at least able to do lines, bezier curves, circles, and rectangles (you know, the basics), as well as filling in arbitrary triangles (and by extension, any polygon constructed of triangles) which I guess could be useful for filling in large chunks of color quickly? Graphics code is sort of what I love writing most :).

edit:
Going to second RR being good.

Double edit:
I swear if Kerm finds me posting on this thread he'll kill me, and it'll be hillarious.

Triple edit (do I get a killstreak now?):
For those not aware, https://www.humblebundle.com/books (https://www.humblebundle.com/books) is MLP comics for the next 7 and a half days after this post.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 03, 2014, 07:14:15 am
That would be cool. Would it be like some modified version of Steins;Gate 8-bit or would you write your own from scratch? What would be cool would be if it used 160x120 but had some animated cutscenes. They would need to be mega-simple, though.


Also why would Kerm not like if you posted in this thread? Is it because he doesn't like ponies or is it because it's not on Cemetech? O.O
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: unknownloner on December 03, 2014, 09:13:52 pm
Probably my own because I don't have the source for Steins;Gate 8 bit, and anyway it'd probably be easier for me to rewrite things my way even if I did. Definitely would want to be able to use a different color palette at the very least. (preferably full 16 bit color)
I think some sort of animation is possible as long as it's not the whole screen changing or not something that needs extremely quick animation to work. It wouldn't be that big of a deal to switch between half-res and full-res as needed either

In response to your second question, mostly because of the ponies. :P
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 03, 2014, 11:32:34 pm
Aah ok. You could probably ask Calc84 though, but yeah it's sometimes easier to write your own code than trying to understand someone else's. And yeah for fast CSE graphics you must only update a small portion of the screen (the reason why it's possible in pure BASIC to scroll a massive rectangle around at very decent speed).

And I see. But again on Omnimaga IRC channel it's against the rules to talk about ponies and 4chan, although it's perfectly fine to talk about Teletubbies and controversial debates such as evolution/religion. So Cemetech isn't alone to have people who hate MLP or find it too weird to be publicly discussed. :P
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: unknownloner on December 04, 2014, 12:03:40 am
Indeed, you can get quite fast and smooth animations if you know what you're doing
For example this thing I made a month or so ago, which isn't even using an optimized display routine

Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 04, 2014, 01:20:23 am
That looks quite fast actually. :D
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on December 04, 2014, 12:25:28 pm
Hmm yeah lol it looks really fast. :D
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 04, 2014, 02:40:09 pm
On a side note you could try to do some sort of Rainbow Dash attack clone using that sprite. I know there are ones on the PRIZM and 84+ but the CSE could use one too. I am also curious about how fast the CSE can be pushed with horizontal screen shifting with sprites because so far we only saw it with lines in Tunnel and using xLIBC with Flappy Bird and the other Tunnel.

So with aeTIos we somehow brought up watching mlp in japanese subbed, and it's epic. :D So we might end up watching s5 in subbed japanese. :P

If I remember right the Japanese intro is like 100% Japanese anime intro style, complete with a length of 1:30. Feels really weird to me, haha. IIRC the Japanese version of This Day Aria was pretty good, I don't know if that was official or a fan made thing though
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Streetwalrus on December 11, 2014, 12:54:51 pm
Yeah the japanese op is totally anime style, and they change it each season. :D
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on December 11, 2014, 03:41:03 pm
The Japanese ops and the italian one are the best.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 11, 2014, 04:23:08 pm
I like how they do openings in different countries. For 80's and early 90's material I generally prefer French openings to Japanese (except Sailor Moon, where I prefer the German version by far, because Happy hardcore) and US because they generally had more catchy songs (although in some cases unfitting), but for newer stuff I prefer Japanese opening. That Japanese opening with the eurobeat theme is awesome by the way. I like the Italian one too but not as much as the American song it seems.

Yup, for me they outperform the international opening by far. The French version (and most likely a bunch of others) is the same as the US one, but translated.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: aeTIos on December 15, 2014, 12:22:54 am
Translated songs really suck. I recently heard the Dutch version of Let It Go from Frozen. That is I heard the first 2 seconds before I ran away screaming...

From the team behind Last Stand of Harmony and Project Thundercloud, here's a trailer for Dinky's Destiny. Coming soon Spring 2015.

Title: Re: Ponies

Wow I didn't know the Project Thundercloud authors would do more animations. I hope that like PT2 that this movie won't get shut down by Hashbro or stuff like that. It seems pretty nice so far.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on December 21, 2014, 04:37:12 am
Yep, from what I see so far, it will be pretty epic. It's been planned since somewhat before PT2 released and as you probably saw, Minty Root is no longer alone to do this. We're a pretty nice team :P
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 21, 2014, 05:54:08 am
Wait you're in the team too? O.O Nice :D
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on December 21, 2014, 06:08:20 am
Yeah. I'm also in Creativity Kitchen, a group for Flash animators, artists and the likes, which will help a lot with Dinky's Destiny. I'm also currently working on the official website which will give all the assets used to make the movie for free (because we make all our own assets instead of inadvertly stealing them from DHX like everyone else, so it will be the most legal you can get for a fan movie) as well as some tutorials on how to animate it will look pretty swell.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on December 21, 2014, 07:25:31 am
Aah ok. I remember you were in another group before which had a forum, but IIRC it died, right?

That said, I don't mind if you cross-post some updates here if you get very involved in the making of a project like this to keep us updated in this thread :)

Best viewed on a 27" 2560x1440 screen. Personally tested by Minty Root and myself.  It looks really great in 1440p.

And yeah, it's short, but it's only the first of four acts.

On a side note I like your avatar Unknownloner :). They should really make a MLP adventure game for consoles. Given that a lot of the older fans also like Japanese stuff and video games, I bet that they would like a JRPG or adventure game based on the show.

Okay, today's episode was so perfect I can't even.

Don't click if you haven't watched, that's pretty much the point of a spoiler tag: ShowHide

So Cranky Donkey and her wife to be have to organise their wedding in an emergency, but the Mane 6 weren't available due to monster business. So...
- Derpy has not only a speaking role, but a main one!
- The Doctor confirmed to be Doctor Who (also main speaking role! And lots of references to Doctor Who in plain sight!)
- Bon Bon is a spy?
- Shipping! Lots of them! (Bon Bon x Lyra, Vinyl x Octavia, Doctor x Derpy)
- Vinyl and Octavia gets their bass cannon out and it's epic
- Gummy speaks?! At least we hear his inner thoughts. Pretty philosophical.
- Many one-time characters comes back (Steven Magnet, a changeling, Big Lebroski and many others)
- People in horse masks in one frame. That really happened.
- Many other references to everything!


So yeah, it's a massive thank to the bronies. Thanks M. A. Larson!

Holy necropost batman. Also, holy epicness batman going down here.

Have you watched the new human ponies movie, Equestria Girls 3: Friendship Games?

most epic scene in the movie, ever, also spoilers: ShowHide
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeGdT3W470E
Okay this is really epic, especially starting from 4:40 in this video, it almost feels like Japanese anime. Also, I like the fact the roles are reversed here compared to the first movie, Sunset Shimmer as the hero and (alternate) Twilight Sparkle as the villain who gotta learn a few friendship lessons at the end.

EDIT: Just look at the video thumbnail. That's the entire movie in one picture. Epicness at its height. Y'all can go home now. Wow.


If you haven't watched it yet, go watch it.

Hehe, nah, it's just your regular technicolor cartoon ponies in human form. Still kind of pony.

Wait... isn't Technicolor from the 1930's and 1950's? O.o

Yesterday marked the 5th anniversary of the current My Little Pony show and to celebrate this...

Show spoiler!: ShowHide
...the Cutie Mark Crusaders got their cutie marks.


It's a pretty big thing.

Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on October 12, 2015, 04:13:23 am
In short...

Spoiler again: ShowHide
Those kids pretty much spent the last 5 years looking for their cutie marks (hence the name, Cutie Mark Crusaders), which is some sort of butt tattoo supposed to represent what your talent is that usually magically appears in a pony's childhood after discovering that talent, and in yesterday's episode, they finally got one of them. The plot on the episodes centered about them were often about their unsuccessful quest to gain such mark, now that they were successful, I wonder what they will do now...

That seems a little weird O.O, but again I am not familiar with MLP. Now that reminds me... did anyone ever make a 2D RPG based on MLP that played like the old Final Fantasy games or Zelda?


Also guys, when posting Youtube links, would it be possible to use https link instead of http so that browsers won't automatically block the content?

I mean a brand new game, not just an existing game with pony sprites or graphics slapped over it.

Post by: Streetwalrus on October 12, 2015, 03:01:38 pm
If that's final fantasy with pony sprites then there is also moemon in a similar style which is a pokemon fire red hack which replaces the usual pokemon sprites with cute girls. Also there's an mlp version.

I was actually surprised to see a graffiti of MLP. Most graffitis are usually random drawings or text. This is the stair next to that MLP graffiti, for example (EDIT: Actually it's another stair nearby. The one next to the MLP art looked similar, though):

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fmedia.twnmm.com%2Fstorage%2F18726614%2F1085&hash=04296cc4f2afdfbbcf47148703fe01ad)
http://media.twnmm.com/storage/18726614/1085

I wonder if it has something to do with that post-it war between Beenox and Ubisoft last Fall? :P


That said, downtown Quebec City is littered with graffitis and street art, so I bet we could get surprised by more unusual art if we look more carefully.
Title: Re: Ponies
Post by: Juju on July 22, 2016, 02:58:42 am
It's been a while its been there, apparently, nothing to do with game developers. And yeah, that's another staircase nearby.

Right now, Beenox and another game developer nearby are busy with Pokémon Go, so you may see Pokémon stuff nearby.

But since it's also the mighty walruses that cause the wind and rain and sunshine, I'm just gonna take the cake outside and wait for some wind ^^  :thumbsup:

I just came back from watching the MLP movie and it was awesome. The only two caveats were the following:

-There was almost one too many musicals for my tastes. I tend to not be used too much to movies with a lot of them nowadays but I can't really complain since some musicals were amazing in the MLP movie.
-The second point is not related to the movie, but basically I had to go to the ATM before heading to the movie, as well as buying Halloween costume stuff at the dollar store next to it. The problem, though, is that both were located at the local shopping mall, near the food court, and this triggered the remains of my PTSD. So when I was at the movie it took a few minutes before my anxiety drops again and to be able to fully concentrate. >.<

I would recommend watching this movie (and of course the show, which I still need to do at some point).

I have yet to watch it in Quebec French (heard Spike have a deeper voice and is actually voiced by a guy for some reason), but yeah, watched it in English when it came out with a bunch of friends and it was good.

Yeah, MLP have quite a lot of music, but it's real good music. I mean, they got Sia in the movie, I don't particularly like her but that song was awesome.
