Get Audacity, open your file, then File --> File Export, and save it as .ogg vorbis format.

I mean, it works, and you don't need to search for hours to find a converter. :P

Also, I would suggest replacing Frank with Gilda. Unless you were already planning that.

Ehh. Frank's gonna be applejack. Gilda's a good suggestion, but maybe she'd be a better ghost, with intimidation and whatnot.
Thanks for your help.

UPDATE:
Argh! Gimp is being mean again. I can't make the sprites transparent. Can somebody take the above Luna and Celestia sprites and make them transparent?
Also, is there some sort of hidden "eraser bucket fill" function in GIMP? That would make this a lot faster.

Well thanks, but that's not the GIMP I have. I found an efficient and effective way to clean up and transparify sprites.
Luna and Celestia are done.
Pictures in spoiler boxes to spare your sanity.

Gigacat, how are things progressing? I can clean up the sprites for you, and RD needs a touchup.

Music is mostly converted. Special thanks to Eurobeat Brony, The Living Tombstone, Glaze/WoodenToaster, and Stormwolf.

UPDATE:
Allllright. We got an issue:
If you can't tell, there is a blue line above Rainbow Dash. I've made several iterations trying to remove it, but to no avail. Both sprite sets are 24x24. What the hay is going on? Am I saving wrong (something unlikely, as I do it in a triple-check manner), or is it an issue with sprite placement?

Protip: Alt-Printscreen to capture only the current window, or maybe just crop the images

I admit to forgetting I'm intentionally running a rather old GIMP, but it looks like my instructions should still work for the version you're running.

Post the full guys.png and I'll take a stab at fixing the clipping issue.

Too lazy to crop, thanks for the tip.
Guys.png:

Thanks.

Back to style, who should the HS ninja be, Mare-do-well or Daring Do?
Or Metal Gear Twilight?
UPDATE:
Scootaloo is done.
yay

I figure I can churn out one decent-looking sprite every ten to fifteen minutes if I already made the base. This includes transparency and testing.

eh, is was doing scoots but yours looks better.
With dashie, you have the bottom line of the image above her (in this case trixiee) in rainbows image. So movie trix up 1 pixel will take the bottom row out of dashies image and in to trixies. and as for me, im lost for ideas.

Default Re: Costume Pony!

Got the dash sprites fixed.

Applejack is my next order of business.
Giga, could you work on the Vampire? I was thinking Gilda, but I need the light damage to make sense.

UPDATE

Okay, Applejack is being stubborn. What could I expect?
I figure I'll work on the knights. I was thinking the "good" knight would be a Canterlot Royal Guardsman/pony and the "bad" knight would be one of Luna's escort. The swords will need to be restyled.

More music: An awesome orchestra piece by StormWolf for the Ranger and Knight, and the Loonyland 2 "Arena" music for the Wolfman. These dudes are totally awesome for letting me use their music (and composing it, of course!)

The background images I tested looked really fuzzy, so I might keep those default. Cloudsdale looks nice.
I'm applying for a job on top of the Regionals on top of school, so I figure I'll have 1/2 to 1 hour of work time per day if I feel up to it. Sorry for any delays, but really, how many people are waiting for it?

The Brony clan on Halo: Reach are supportive of the mod, and recommended some music, but I doubt they'll be downloading CP just for ponies. I'll try for some publicity, but I doubt this will be enough to float Hamumu, or even Costume Party for that matter. At least I'm having fun. I discovered I enjoy graphic design when unrestricted.

Back to business.

Programming:
Does crouching as HS Ninja, Wizard, and Wolf tighten hitboxes or just sprites?

Sprite Recommendations (or submissions if you are awesome enough to take the time for that) are needed.

I need:
Kid
Vampire (Gilda?)
Santa
Snowman
Ghost
Bouapha
HS Ninja (MDW or DD?)
Ranger - Not very in line with Equestria. Maybe I'll put in a MC cameo.
Knight
Dark Knight
Meta Knigh- oh wait, nevermind

Also, converting tiles and objects might be fun. Floating cupcakes, anyone?
Unused (important) Pony List:
Rarity
Fluttershy
Twilight
Pinkie (Maybe used)
Applebloom
Sweetie
Big Mac
Spike (wat)
Wonder/shadow bolts

Music so far:
Kid - Cupcakes (Odyssey & The DNA Team)
Witch + Penguin - Unknown. Filler "Catgroove" (Parov Stelar)
Ghost+Snowman - Winter Wrap-Up Eurospring Mix (Odyssey & The DNA Team)
Wolfman - LL2 arena
Frank - Regular, scheduled to change
Yerfdog + Bouapha - Something Eurobeat (Odyssey & DNA Team)
Wizard - Nightmare Night Electro Dubstep (JoshLoh/Stormwolf)
Vampire - Unchanged. scheduled to change.
Santa - So Many Wonders (Odyssey & DNA)
HS Ninja - Evil Enchantress (Odyssey & Dna)
Ranger + Knight - Beyond Her Tomb Orchestra (JoshLoh/Stormwolf)


I wonder what Jamul thinks of all this? I.e. is he a brony, is he chill with me modding his stuff, is he supportive of it?

TL;DR: There is no escape from text. Read the post.

UPDATE
The knight's anatomy is so complex! What does the sword-less hand sprite do?
Also, guards: Y U NO ALICORNS? YOU CANNOT HOLD SHIELDS WITHOUT MAGIC
What should I do for the shield?

Here's my concept of the sword. I've always imagined Equestrian weapons to be golden and ornate. As usual, it's a first draft and just a rough sketch.

Here, have some desktop backgrounds while you wait. It's an experiment in electro art.

Currently, I'm pairing Gilda + RF Instrumental.
I constructed a concept sprite of Lyra as the kid, but it was carpy so I didn't implement it.
Now, the Kid has swaggadelic sunglasses.

Sounds good.
Knight is up.

I was thinking of some other changes:
> Put punch and cookies on closed doors
> Change the font to the MLP type (need numbers)

Also, need music for Vampire, Frank, and Witch/Penguin.

EDIT:
DRM Question. Sound samples from songs are illegal to use without explicit permission from the artist, regardless of whether I bought the song or not?
Fasten your Seatbelts' Rave section goes awesome with Rainbow Dash.

UPDATES
I cannot draw Fluttershy.

I mean, I could reskin Rainbow, but that's unnecessary if Giga's working on Flutter.

I'll clean up the Fluttershies for you. I'll also put the Alicorns and guards in. The YAY looks nice, too. Thanks!

Please see above post by me for DRM question

Double post update time!






So as you can see Fluttershy is done, but the Yay sprite is nearly invisible when you press Z. Thanks, Gigacat.

I was focusing on the ranger for my next order of business. I was thinking Steelhooves, so I could plant frag mines and fire grenades out of a battle saddle. Sound good?
What should his costume look like?

I don't think weapons go very well with Pinkie Pie.
