Well, BabsCon's panel isn't going to happen. According to DarkFlame, the other guests on the panel cancelled by virtue of folding. He is, however, still going to be in the vendor hall, selling stuff.

Here's a link to the vendor hall location. According to my sources, he'll be there from 10am to 6pm, though exactly when is anyone's guess.

While highly unfortunate, everyone in the San Francisco area is expected to attend on penalty of a stern look of disapproval from me.

Oh, and we're still working on the game. But you already knew that.

Did you know there was a cyberpunk game jam last week? That literally just ended?

If you did, did you know we took part?
(We referring to myself, Darkflame, Chic, newcomers Gremlin and Silfoe, and some other people not part of Starlight).

Well, we did. The main page is right here (slightly NSFW) and our game is right here.

Now, in addition to being so kind and tweeting about this on #cyberpunkjam about how much you love our game, this is also a very useful test.

The engine of the game is Sugar^3, same as it will be for Megamare-X. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate it if you forum goons would be so kind as to test it for compatibility. If you experience crashes on startup or bizarre effects like screen tearing, it'll help immensely to get bug reports in the comments below.

So far, only one person has had a problem, and it may have been due to outdated graphics drivers. Thanks...

Holy crap!

We're gonna be on a panel at BabsCon! And by we, I mean DarkFlame and Toasty, because I will not be going (what am I, made of money?)

The current time of the panel and whatnot is currently unknown, as the schedule is not finalized. However, we do know that BabsCon is being held from April 18-20, so if you're going then feel free to sneak up behind DarkFlame and steal his wallet.

The panel is going to be about making games in general, and will likely feature some other game developers (which are TBA at this point). I don't know what those two are going to talk about specifically, but there's a good chance they'll let slip more details on Megamare-X.

More information as it comes, stay tuned.

We went a whole month without a post! Well you shouldn't be surprised, because we're working on the game. As much as I like staring at Contex's mug on the main page, I figured you'd all like to see something a little less... intimidating? Yeah, intimidating.

So here's something Urimas made. These are various sprites we decided to release because they were in the BC2013 demo, so it's not like we're spoiling anything.

Of course, you should go to Spaceman's page and give him mad props/make fun of his accent. Seriously, he doesn't enunciate the t's. It's hilarious.

So I've been quite busy lately but I promised you I would update the forum sooner or later, so here it is.

You might have noticed (I sure hope so) that the theme has changed, the old theme wasn't working after the upgrade so I purchased a new theme for you guys.

There's been a few changes to the forum, I've had to remove a couple of features that weren't working after the upgrade and there's a couple of new features too!

Post in this thread if you find a bug or if there's something you wish to change, I'll do my best to get things fixed.

PS: Hangout users, I can merge the two threads together as it should now work just fine, let me know if you want to keep it separated or not.

Hey everypony!

We have an announcement for those of you who might have missed it elsewhere: an information page is out for Megamare-X, alongside a new website that will delve into the backstory of the game.

And while we're at it, have some awesome art, courtesy of DarkFlame:



You can read more about the game in-development on our website: http://www.starlightstudios.org/cygnus.html. What took us so long to make even this simple thing? Well, we're busy making the game of course!

Whether or not you heard about ERI regarding our demo back at BronyCon, you'll be happy to hear that it is now live at http://equestrianrobotics.org/. And just what is ERI? Our press release post on details it best:

Hey everypony!

Before we announced Cygnus, Salty mentioned that we had a little something to release to all of you. This is not Cygnus, nor is it related. However, we would like to share:



This is a mod, made by our talented Urimas Ebonheart, for the game King Arthur's Gold. If you haven't heard of it, it is a free to download and play from their website: http://kag2d.com/en/. Our team regularly enjoys sparring in a CTF together and playing as ponies just makes it that much more enjoyable!

You can download the mod from our servers at: http://bit.ly/princess-celestias-gold.

We hope you enjoy this mod, and if you need any more convincing, we have filmed a gameplay session of our team:



Also, KAG is currently being promoted on on Indie Game Stand, so you can pay whatever you want for the full version! Read this post on their blog for...

MLP:Online is now independent
The recent server maintenance to our forums has brought with it another change: Starlight Studios has decided to run MLP:Online independently of our development team.
We will take a less active role with the community in the forums, but still be present.
Our team will still be sponsoring the forums, in that we will be contributing to the operation of the server hosting.

You might also noticed that there are a couple of advertisements on the website, I'm currently experimenting with the placements and such, but the funds from the advertisements go towards keeping this website up.

Our MLP:Online project was community-based and we...

Hello.

I'd just like to inform everyone that the website will have an expected maintenance on March 17th, it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours, I'm getting things ready, so it should be just to transfer it over.
The website can therefore be unavailable on March 17th, I'll most likely start the transfer around 10-11 AM (GMT).

We'll be moving to a new server, due to the limitations of the current server.

With the switch, comes a DNS update, meaning it might take your DNS up to 24 hours to update.
If you want to make sure your DNS is up to date, use Google's DNS or OpenDNS as your ISP's DNS may be a bit slow when it comes to updating.

So, if you haven't seen the new tab in the navigation, here are the new and updated rules.

These will now be enforced by the current moderators, Flutterspy is now the head of the moderation crew.

However, we are depending on the members of this community to report posts and content that break the rules above.

Due to the fact that we have a lack of moderators; we are also looking for additional moderators, we need two sectional moderators for the Role Play section of the forum.
We are also looking for additional global moderators, if you are interested in either position, start a private conversation with me and let me know of: what experience you have with moderation and why you would be a good moderator.

Make sure to make the title/subject of the conversation "Moderator Application", and remember to state if you wish to be a global or...
