Where did you get the data to analyze this?


It's all data I've manually collected over the years, either from submissions to the DKF High Score List or games that I simply analyzed for their own sake. While my methods have changed a little over time, my own archive consists of a separate Excel spreadsheet for each and every game (for the most part...older games might be in a different format that I haven't updated yet). As a result of Wes Copeland's hard work, I can enter that data into kongtrac.kr and then export the entire database as one JSON file. That makes it much easier to work with than hundreds of individual spreadsheets.

I noticed you were playing Carnival this morning.  I was trying to start my journey with Congo Bongo (horrid game).  I can't wait to watch the dozens of replays.  Thanks.

In all seriousness, remember there have been issues over the past year with high-input games being saved to the servers.  My 90-minute Crazy Kong was fine, but several people have lost hour-long games that had more inputs.  Kong has just recently moved to new servers, and I haven't heard of any issues so far.  Just wanted you to be aware.

Good luck!

Good to know.   For some reason I think it's the .ip address or maybe even the computer.  I use to have that issue a few years ago, but since then I have had no problems.  I mean my seven hour Donkey Kong 3 score went through just fine.

That's awesome. Thanks for the answer. As a data guy, it's always nice to have access to some data that is also interesting.
