It's January, you know what that means.

What? No, not Ruse F Day, it's time for the nominations phase of the 2017 AES Awards and the Third Annual t's!

As always, here's the courtesy guidelines.
  • Please refrain from nominating yourself in any category if possible. The only exception to this rule is if there was an exceptional standout match this year that happened to coincidentally include your character, as long as you weren't the person who recorded and edited it.
  • Please try to cap off total nominations per category at five (5). If you nominate less, that's fine. If you're struggling and happen to nominate six for a category or two, I won't be mad either.
  • If you're confused as to what exactly entails a specific category, feel free to ask, or check the 2015 and 2016 nomination threads.

Who is the code? The code is...

Please read all of this before signing up, there's some pretty specific stuff. I know it's a lot to read, but please bear with me.

First and foremost, this is a stable-based fed. Now, that doesn't mean it's the kind of fed where a full stable just walks in like BOSS or something along those lines. No, each of the stables on the core roster is funded by a sponsor. That sponsor owns 50% of your CoF:E contract and pays your wage. Please be aware that you will probably not be given a choice as to which sponsor your character is employed by, and also that they don't have to like or agree with the methods of their sponsor. Some characters may not have a sponsor, but will get paid significantly less in-canon.

The second thing I want to establish is that, for the core roster, I am looking primarily for people not overly active in other feds. If you are signing up to be part of the core roster, please be in no more than one active fed with that character. I will allow exceptions in the case of feds that have particularly long dev cycles or feds that are basically "anyone can appear and anything can happen", but I want to cater to fresher faces and characters that have been sidelined for one reason or another. I'm also looking more for wrestlers from the UK and Europe rather than say America/Mexico/Japan for the core roster, but this isn't a restriction, merely a want based on what the fed is.

The third is the midcard titles. There are three of them, and they all have hard weight restrictions. They will be contested at ≤175 lbs, 176-225 lbs and ≥226 lbs respectively. As such, please make sure to actually list a weight. As they are hard limits, someone at 210 cannot challenge for the 226+ title no matter how many people in that weight class they beat unless they specifically bulk up for it.

The fourth is the main title. It's a stable title. No matter who wins it, it goes to the sponsor. In can be defended 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, 1v1v1, 1v1v1v1, so on so forth. The sponsor whose stable wins it gets a much bigger stipend than the other stables do when they own it, and as such the performers in those stables do too. It's in the best interests of everyone in a stable to secure it.

Finally, if you are interested in having one of your characters be a sponsor, please contact me privately. There are only a handful of slots for these positions so please be aware there's a reasonably high chance I'll reject the idea. They can either wrestle or not at your request, but regardless they won't take up a core slot.

One signup per head for the core roster until further notice, with a hard limit of 28 until further notice. It's in FPW so there's no gender restrictions. If you've made them yourself, please delete everything below "Other info".

Now, you may note I threw around the term 'core roster' a lot up there, and there's a very good reason for that. In addition to the core roster of 28, there will also be temporary rosters of 8 or so that rotate every 6 episodes or so. I'll generally refer to this set as the touring roster, as the idea is that they're doing a tour of the company. These slots will not open until all 28 initial core slots are taken, but you can sign up regardless of whether you have someone in the core or not.

Additionally, the active fed restriction mentioned above does not apply to people on the touring roster. Signups for the next touring roster will open up probably halfway through a tour, I'll give an alert each time. The main restriction for touring roster members is that they can't be on two tours in a row, but more or less everything else is open to them in theory, including taking part in stable activities with a sponsor, challenging for titles and even having a stable to themselves, situationally depending.

I've been noticing a lot of questions lately about certain aspects of Handbraking videos. What is Handbraking? How does it work? How do I prevent it from cropping parts of my video? Why is my audio messed up after Handbraking? I hope to address as many of these concerns as possible within this guide.

First of all, what is Handbrake? Well, it's a very nice program that we use to simultaneously reduce the size of video files, optimize them for web play on the AES Network and convert their audio and video to globally-readable formats for playback on various devices and browsers.

It's not only useful for the AES Network, though. Having your video pre-optimized massively takes the load off of rendering and uploading times to sites such as YouTube, as it removes a lot of the automated processes it would otherwise have to go through.

What it is not, however, is a video editor. You cannot create your videos within Handbrake itself.

You can find Handbrake over at https://handbrake.fr/

Upon opening the latest version of Handbrake (at the time of writing), you'll be presented with a dialog prompting you to select a file to put through the process. This is simple enough, but once past that part it can be a little confusing.

To start with I'd recommend selecting one of the templates under general, such as Veryfast 720p30, to save a lot of time over the next few steps. I'll be providing visual aids for the rest of the process.

First, we have the Picture tab, which should look something like this:

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  

There's multiple things to make important note of on this tab, and I'm going to bullet point them.
-Ensure Container is set to MP4.
-Ensure Web Optimized is ticked.
-Ensure Cropping is set to Custom and that the Top, Left, Right and Bottom values are all 0.
-Ensure that the Size values are the same as those in Source. If you swap between 4:3 videos and 16:9 videos you will probably need to change this.
The other settings in this tab should be fine as-is if you selected one of the recommended starting templates.

The next tab, Filters, should not need to be touched. After that, however, we have the Video tab, which should look something like this:

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  

-Ensure Video Codec is H.264 (x264).
-Ensure Framerate (FPS) is set to either Automatic if your framerate is 30 or lower to begin with or at 30 if you rendered higher for some reason. Also ensure it is Constant.
-Ensure Quality is constant and the number is 20 or higher.
Also of note on this page is the Encoder Preset option, which is responsible for reducing filesize. The slower it is set, the smaller the size, however beyond Fast the gains are minimal and the processing times are excruciating. I would recommend using Fast, possibly Veryfast if you feel it's taking too long.

The next tab, and the one most seem to run into issues with, is the Audio tab. Screenshot below:

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  

-If the leftmost dropdown lists the audio file as AAC anywhere, swap Codec to AAC Passthru.
-If the leftmost dropdown lists the audio file as anything other than AAC (ie. MP3, AC3), keep codec as AAC (avcodec) and instead swap Bitrate to Quality and change it from 5 to 10.
The former is a guaranteed workaround for Handbrake audio issues, however the latter is sketchy at best. I would heavily recommend rendering in a file format that has AAC audio to save yourself headache.
Of note, audio settings do not save in templates. You will need to repeat this process for every file.

The remaining two tabs, Subtitles and Chapters, are irrelevant for what we're doing. With everything set as above, you're free to render. I heavily recommend not overwriting the original file until you have assured there are no issues with the handbrake file.

To quote last years' topic,
QUOTE (Teezy @ Feb 13 2017, 07:19 AM)
I find myself regularly checking times on intro parts for syncing up entrances with themes on WWE 2k17. So I figured why not save myself the time and make a guide for it, which others could also use?

Here is the WWE 2k18 list of advanced entrance "intro" part lengths. Obviously none of the main DLC packs are out yet and there's always the possibility of more entrances being added outside of those as we've seen in recent years. This topic will be updated for any changes as I'm aware of them.

The list is very long and sorted alphabetically so you may wish to search using ctrl+F (or cmd+f if you're on mac I think) in order to find the time you're looking for.
