Posted by: Z-Force - 08-19-2018, 01:22 AM - Forum: SoP General - Replies (1)

(The Following is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real persons may or may not be entirely coincidental)

Prologue

(Modern Day, at the ZTV Deathmatch Arena. For the last few years, a mysterious fighting organization, known only as ZTV Deathmatch has been the #1 Ratings Draw. Fans can’t seem to get enough of the vicious combat taking place there. What is most peculiar about this organization though is that wrestling heroes from the past appear and fight there despite the fact that they’re well…. Dead. No one knows why this happens, but the people love seeing their heroes of yesteryear fight once again and as a result, no one bothers to question the strange goings on.

However, roughly a year or so ago, a seemingly unstoppable warrior claimed the Championship of ZTV. This was a fierce fighter known as Boork Reznar. He crushed opponent after opponent en route to claiming the championship. However, once he did, his appearances on the circuit became more and more sporadic. With the advice of his nefarious manager, Raul Kleyman, he would make demands of more money just to show up, but when he did, he would crush the opponents put before him, often leaving the crowd in despair as they watched their heroes get crushed, one after another. As the story opens, Boork and his manager are standing in the ring, awaiting their newest challenger. Boork is mostly just standing around mean mugging and looking tough, occasionally bouncing around the ring while his manager talks.

Raul: My mighty client, BOOOOOOORRRRRRRK REZZZZZZZZZNAR has no equal in this world! He has crushed all challengers, and NOW apparently, the ZTV Deathmatch staff cannot even find an opponent worthy enough to be crushed by my mighty client, BOOOOOOORRRRRK REZZZZZZZZZZZNARRRRRRRR.

(Boork laughs and bounces around)

Raul: Apparently, there was to be a championship match tonight, but whatever fool they lined up decided discretion was the better part of valor and didn’t even show up tonight! So it looks like we’ll be taking the evening off since ZTV Deathmatch cannot even find a worthy challenger to get introduced into the Village of Suplexes by my client…. BOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRK REZZZZZZZZNAR!

ZTV Commentator Sean Scott: Geez… whaddya mean he’s not going to fight? It’s been 4 months since the dude even showed up last!

(As fans boo with this announcement, Boork suddenly appears concerned and shuffles up to his manager, grabbing the mic from his hand)

Boork: Whaddya mean Take the Night off?! If I don’t fight…. I don’t get to charge my exorbitant appearance fee! I’m gonna fight SOMEONE tonight, bring out anybody, I don’t care who it is! I’ll put this championship up against ANYONE from the back, I’ll send em to the Village of Suplexes and I’ll get my fight money!

(Fans are in a buzz now)

Sean: Well this is interesting, Boork Reznar doesn’t really talk much (mostly because he sounds like an inbred hillbilly when he does) But he’s issuing an open challenge for anyone to face him for the ZTV Deathmatch Championship of the Universe! But Boork has crushed most of the opposition, does anyone have the guts to face him for the title?

(As the buzz among the crowd intensifies, suddenly the lights go out in the arena. The crowd hushes and after a minute or two, a red spotlight hits the entryway, and a figure emerges from the curtain. He’s of medium height and definitely looks well built, although scars cover his body. He’s wearing long black pants with red designs and trim. He almost seems familiar for some reason, but the man is wearing a hood and veil, concealing his face, so no one can quite tell for sure. He slowly marches to the ring as fans look on, wondering exactly who this mystery man is. He steps into the ring and glances in the direction of the champion and his manager, the former of which nods and takes up a fighting stance, ordering his manager out of the ring. He reluctantly steps outside to watch. Boork hands his championship belt to the referee who holds it up in the air for all to see before calling for the bell. Just as the match begins, the mystery man turns his back to Boork and spread out his arms.

Sean Scott: What is this guy doing? It’s almost like he’s INVITING Reznar to administer one of his devastating suplexes!

(Boork walks up and grabs the mystery man from behind in a waistlock and lands a DEVASTATING German Suplex, throwing his foe nearly halfway across the ring as Raul cheers him on. Boork half sits up with a grin on his face as the mystery challenger hits the mat. But he doesn’t notice his challenger almost immediately springs back up afterward. Boork is oblivious as he slowly gets back up, thinking his challenger already crushed, oblivious to the screams of both his manager and the crowd. As he stands up, he is immediately drilled by a devastating roundhouse kick, sending him sprawling to the canvas.)

Sean Scott: A DEVASTATING kick, and the champion seems to be out cold! This is unbelievable! I… I almost think I’ve seen someone who had a kick like that but… I can’t put my finger on it!

(The crowd is in shock as the mystery man stares down at his fallen opponent. He could easily pin Boork for a 30 count right now, but he feels the need to drive his point home. He stares out at the crowd and slowly draws his thumb across his throat. Raul Kleyman is beside himself as the mystery opponent lifts the now dead weight of Boork Reznar up. He set up for what appears to be a vertical suplex, but instead, he drops Boork straight down on his head in a sudden, and devastating Brainbuster. Boork lands headfirst with a sickening sound, leading to the crowd go silent, as the champion is now lying on the mat, not moving except for an involuntary twitch here and there. The mystery man crawls over to his opponent and places one finger over Boork’s prone carcass. The referee jumps into position and counts. 1… 2... 3. As if there had been any question about the count at that point.

Sean Scott: My God… ZTV Deathmatch has a new champion, but WHO IS THIS GUY?! He crushed the undefeated Boork Reznar in two moves! Not to mention, he completely shrugged off one of his devastating suplexes!

(The crowd is in shock, as the referee hands the ZTV Championship Belt to this mystery man who seems to have appeared from the depths of Hell itself. Medics now have come out to tend to the former champion, placing him on a stretcher as his manager looks on in horror. Finally Raul turns to the mystery man and with mic in hand screams the question that everyone in the building is dying to know.)

Raul: WHO… ARE YOU?!

(Much to everyone’s surprise, the mystery man quite willingly reaches for the hood he’s wearing and begins to pull it off. For him, now is as good a time as any. After seven years, it was finally time for him to once again walk in the public eye after basically disappearing from the face of the Earth. For almost seven years, he had been preparing for this moment, he had been watching events from the shadows… events he had inadvertently put into place. He had put himself through Hell in preparation for this moment, for now was the time to finally fight back. As he finally removed the hood, the look of shock on the face of Raul Kleyman was only surpassed by the sounds of shock and horror that came from the crowd.)

Sean Scott: Oh my God, no way! It can’t be!

(The crowd knew exactly who this man was. Seven years ago, he had disappeared following a bitter defeat at the hands of his arch enemy. The world had breathed a bit easier, thinking he was gone forever. This man had been a champion in every organization he had been in, but had also brought untold chaos and ruin to every organization he had been in. And now, he was back. And he was the champion of ZTV Deathmatch. And no one knew what sort of chaos he would bring.

Mr. Z grabbed the microphone out of Raul Kleyman’s hand and raised it to his mouth. After a 7 year disappearance, he would address the masses for the first time...)

  Is it worth upgrading to windows 10?
Posted by: Akubarix - 04-01-2018, 04:24 AM - Forum: SoP General - Replies (8)

I recently obtained an elgato for streaming. It works as a pass through for HDMI, but it won't work for streaming/recording unless I upgrade to windows 10. I have a lot of issues with W10, namely the whole "lol we're spying at you at all times" bullshit they force upon you and I'm wondering if I can turn all that shit off. That and I keep reading about issues people have when they upgrade from an older O.S. Seeing as you guys are on the up and up, I figured you'd have some insight on this. I'm currently on Windows 7 and I actually enjoy the O.S. layout as is, but if I can set windows 10 up to have a "classic look" and if I can turn that spying shit off, I'm all for upgrading to the new shit.

If I can't turn that shit off or run a "classic" mode, I suppose I can just use my old shitty capture card and deal with it. Any suggestions or input would be appreciated, as I've done all of the troubleshooting I can to run the new card and it's just no-going me.

  BRAND NEW Episodes of ZTV Coming Soon
Posted by: Z-Force - 02-03-2018, 10:54 AM - Forum: SoP General - Replies (2)

I'm in the process of getting some brand new episodes of ZTV in the can.  I would like to get everyone's feedback as to a good night for viewing the show.  I'm not going to be doing the long marathon 3 hour episodes anymore, I'm shooting for roughly an hour and a half or so for each episode, and the shows will be primarily focused on retro gaming (although if I get a good newer game to review I'm not against doing so).  I'm probably going to look into Friday, Saturday or Sunday with around 6:30-7 CST for a start time, but I'm open to suggestions or feedback.

Star 1-11 Discord Meeting
Posted by: LordVermin - 01-11-2018, 10:24 PM - Forum: SoP General - No Replies

Calling a general meet and chat tonight on Discord for anyone who is in our D&D group or wants to potentially participate in a FPW related group project (I'm not saying the "e" word yet).

I'll be on after dinner at some point but we'll try to get things 'officially' rolling around 7 CST, same time as the old SOP TV shows.

Attendance not mandatory, but if you miss it I may kill you.

  Had some computer issues
Posted by: LordVermin - 09-03-2017, 11:09 AM - Forum: SoP General - Replies (20)

It's been a while... a LONG while, actually, since I've had any serious issues.

Well, earlier tonight all my fonts vanished off my screen. No text would display. I wasn't able to try all the solutions I found because I couldn't actually interact with or read any windows or messages. System restore failed, so I ended up 'resetting' windows, which is a win10 thing kinda like a soft format. I've been through worse situations, but boy did I not miss how much these dumb things can suck.

blah blah, long story short, I've got mumble and the Conan server back up for you guys, but there might be issues. If you encounter any issues, let me know.

  About to give this SSD a spinning pile driver
Posted by: Akubarix - 08-29-2017, 08:46 PM - Forum: SoP General - Replies (8)

So I'm building this computer from scratch for the first time in a good ten years. It's a been a slow labor of love as I don't want to ruin any fancy parts. As I fixed what I thought was my last issue, another hurdle appeared. Frankly, I'm about to smash the drive and just get a HDD. Before I go full "Fuck the Knicks" on it, however, I figured I'd ask you guys as google as failed me terribly...

The bios won't fucking detect the Solid State Drive unless it's in USB mode and when it is, it won't do anything with it. I've tried:
-turning off compatibility mode
-Removing the Blu Ray Drive (it detects this one)
-Differing cables
-differing sata ports
-updating the bios

I also went full shot in the dark and tried installing windows 7 while it was in the USB port, but it yells at me about drivers and won't detect said SSD.

If it helps, my Mother board is an Asus Z170-A.
