I really wasn't planning on making this thread until the series finale, but I've been thinking for a good while now and it's time for me to say good bye to MLPG. If you think this is too attention seeking a thread I apologize, that's not the point of this thread. I want to explain why on earth for the last few years I have nearly every day posted with a joke or a story or a feel or a poorly done quest. I want to talk about this pony cartoon and what it has personally meant to me and invite anyone else to do likewise. And no, I'm not drunk.

First and absolutely foremost, I want to talk about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is not the best show ever. Far from it; our own cynical nature often has us dwell on its problems, which can be glaring at times. But this show to me has a certain quality to it that will always make it one of my favorites. Looking back at it, this show had NOTHING going for it on paper: It was a reboot (something that's always a hit or miss) done in Flash of a long running franchise for girls starting on a desperate flag ship new network on cable. Girl cartoons, frankly, have always been rather insipid and lacking, especially when compared to what is essentially the boy counterpart cartoon, Transformers. They're both very merchandise heavy shows, but at least shows like Transformers had action and endearing characters. And it's not just those two specific shows, but for cartoons in general. So to have FOURTH generation of My Little Pony seems like a recipe for a DOA.

But it wasn't. Heck, for better or worse, it became one of the biggest phenomena to hit the internet AND maintain it. It didn't so much as break new ground or try something brand new, but it laid a solid foundation and raised the bar up on a whole target demographic up in terms of quality. This was the biggest successful instance I can think of a show that is specifically made for younger children (girls, no less) but has a wide appeal across gender and ages. That is mindbogglingly difficult to do. The closest example I could think of would be Powerpuff Girls if it had the Pokemon fandom in the 90s. Very rarely has a show that, statistically speaking, I should find to be very weak actually entertained and made me laugh. Once I saw the scene in Bridle Gossip where Fluttershy sings for Pinkie I knew this was something.

I was happily posting in /vg/ about videogames, then went out to do some groceries and when I came back I saw this every time I tried to post.

I checked to see if I was banned, but apparently I'm not.

I changed my IP by turning off my router, but that didn't change anything.

I added hola unblocker in case everyone from my country in case 4chan had gone mad and decided to stop all europe from posting here.

I cannot post on 4chan. I don't have a ban but I just can't post.

Bloody hell I wasn't even shitposting

What the fuck, people
What the fuck happened
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Get on the 4chan IRC and pester some mod to unblock your IP
Some dumb faggot got rangebanned because he's a cunt
They can unblock your IP specifically and you'll be able to post, but not if you reset your IP again.


That didn't work, but I sent a feedback to explain the situation to wheover reads those
Now I can't post only on /vg/, for some reason, but at least it's an improvement

Continuation of the plot of the Super Mario RPG-style RPG game we were rambling about in the general.

One person has to take the reins and make all the big decisions.


Agreed. Which is why I'm not taking that position
I'll definitely put some effort into it though. I'm just not making this my baby.


>Anyway, my initial model assumed that a single pin would have set modifiers that are brute-applied to the next pin(s). The example Crystal Shield will always add armor-piercing to Honesty pins, and always turn Loyalty pins into reactives. Of course this means nothing to Honesty pins that don't interact with a target's armor, and Loyalty may already have reactives or passives that wouldn't make sense for conversion.

This is sorta like the system they went with for Transistor, though instead of a "each pin affects the next one" it was a deliberate "this pin in this slot with these pins chosen to modify it".
Each skill in the game had a main ability that it had when loaded into a slot to be used directly as a skill, a property that it modified other skills with when put into the modification slots, and a third property that applied when put in a buff slot that applied continuously to your character.


That does sound similar Except this system talked about here sounds like the pins can only go in their element slot.


The person in charge doesn't necessarily have to provide a huge chunk of the work. It's just important somebody somewhere is generating and detailing shit out. I'm personally not about to create a design document.

But we do have the beginnings of a game story here in this thread. That and the super basic concept of how combat progresses is what we have as a structure. Either could be abandoned though if something better or more fleshed out comes along.

Let's make a vidya, MLPG!

Link to the engine: http://www.supermariobrosx.org/

The general idea is to accept level contributions, then stitch them together into a single world people can download and play. You can control either Anon (Mario) or Femanon (either Luigi or Princess) and play through the submitted levels. Custom sprites and music to be shared are also welcome for those who'd rather contribute with artwork or songs.

The game comes with an editor and requires no scripting or programming in order to create levels. Just point and click in blocks, backgrounds, enemies and powerups!

Might as well mention that the project I mentioned kinda fell through, and I'm currently bedridden by a flu. I'll be gone next weekend to attend a meeting, but after all that I should be free to do whatever.


Seeing as I keep missing you, how about you take a crack at an Anon sprite?

The sheet is earlier in the thread, and despite all the extra area the players' hitbox is fixed at 32x64. Stuff hanging outside the box will render, but it'll clip through walls. If you double up your pixels, then we can use existing assets. Otherwise we'll have to redraw all the art to match the 'thinner' style.

I've heard you might be able to use Luna.DLL to change the hitbox size, but I haven't had time to properly boop around with it much. So just assume 32x64.


You could make a file in yall's world folder named lunaworld.txt and define the hitbox change there, then it would run in every level in that world.

Hello, I'm going to bronycon 2014(3 day pass) and BronyTrot(drinking thing on thursday). I plan on doing live updates and possible streams during events at bronycon.

Just asking if anyone wants specific events streamed, pictures of X, or other requests from the events.


I heard you were the same guy that takes those small resolution screen caps after every new preview and episode, is that true or just speculation?


No idea who that is but you should wait for 1080p rips for caps speediness is no excuse over quality.

I run the bingo, flip mouths, and the HNH shit. Sorry anon can't tell you how that person is

In which we discuss/write about PG-rated greentexts about teenage humanized ponies.

Gentlemen, it's time we brought it back.

Post your ideas and available times. Try to set up some jam sessions so the shitposters can be drowned out by two or so >feelsmiths posting in concert.


>Silver Spoon
I was mostly thinking of revisions for what we already had - like having it so that she was always into cooking before meeting you, but maybe she was a bit too self-conscious to share it with anyone; refocusing things a little bit. As much as I enjoy the idea of her having a cold, domineering mother, I think we took it a bit too far and it got distracting.


Haven't we bandied a few ideas for her around as well? Something about cutting class with her?
What do high schoolers in New York City do for fun?


Nerdy girl-next-door comes back from MIT and it turns out she got really really cute is still a solid idea and we should do more with it.
Or the thing with her as that girl in the soda fountain/candy shop.


We had a lot of stuff with Silver Spoon. Might be better to break new ground on Babs and/or Twist.

Didn't we already have the delinquent angle for Scootaloo? Maybe something else for Babs…


>We had a lot of stuff with Silver Spoon

Well, yeah, that's why I was mostly thinking revisions for her - we probably wrote more with SS than we did with some of the others combined.

>Didn't we already have the delinquent angle for Scootaloo? Maybe something else for Babs…

Well, it's been established that Babs was bullied - and it seems like there could be a big enough distinction from Scootaloo; even if Scoots has to deal with being bullied, she still has her two best friends - Babs, on the other hand, it sounded like she really didn't have any friends at all.

I can see maybe Babs putting on a tough-girl persona and trying to convince herself she doesn't need any friends and that your attentions are just another ploy to humiliate her, like every other time a boy's shown any interest in her. … or maybe that's a bit much…

Also, what will we do about Applebloom? That one's always been problematic, because of the retardery around when it got cut off, and because any attempts to restart it are met with especially intense shitposting.


Honestly, I think the Applebloom shitter could just be counterspammed/ignored. I'm frankly amazed that lowlife is still hanging around these parts. Regardless, we don't have any new ideas brewing for her, so it shouldn't be forced.

I'd like to think Babs could have grown past the bullying by teen years, but that does seem to be her shtick, more or less. Maybe the nature of the bullying changed post-puberty? Excuse me for >my fetish, but maybe those big tits of hers could be a factor. You'd think they'd make her popular, but more often than not busty teenagers are ostracized and you hear about their reduction surgeries in the news.
