Title: Donkey Kong Jr. High Score List General Discussion
Post by: ChrisJBenn on June 27, 2013, 03:25:45 AM
This is the general discussion thread for the Donkey Kong Jr. High Score List. Feel free to discuss anything concerning the list. IF you prefer you can always create a new topic. If it is relevant and needs to stay separate from the general discussion thread then that is great, otherwise it can probably just be merged to this general discussion thread. Please note that this thread and the posts in it contain the original discussions that used to be in the old DK Jr. HSL format.

My 1.037 game was technically not a ks game.  I died on E-4.

Looks good, Chris.

My only suggestions would be to use the links to the "newer" TG scoreboards (where most of the incorrect dates have been fixed), and to link directly to the "Points" variation (since it's the only variation that TG currently tracks):

Twin Galaxies MAME Scoreboard (http://www.twingalaxies.com/scoreboard/6650/46/7723/)
Twin Galaxies Arcade Scoreboard (http://www.twingalaxies.com/scoreboard/126/2/24/)

Your score's already up there, mate. Number 7. Live scores meet the criteria as noted above. I'm not only taking TG submissions, that's just where I'm starting as it's easy to grab a large chunk of the scores that are out there. I'm taking any and all scores that meet the criteria, as originally laid out by Corey.

Ben's score was streamed so I imagine his 1.1 million game would qualify via peer review. He may even still have an archive of it. Do you still have the archive of your 1070k game anywhere?

I guess the one main problem is this Brian.  How do we know you did not use 6 men plus an extra?  I believe you did 3 men plus an extra, but no one else can know that besides yourself.  Hence the unwillingness of some to include that score on some lists.

Any videos, such as those posted on youtube, which shows only the final moments of a game must demonstrate a restart to prove that the game was started with a 3 lives setting.

I'm using literally the exact same criteria as the DK HSL, guys.

Post by: corey.chambers on June 27, 2013, 09:45:07 AM
Great score, Brian. I personally do not doubt your score of 1,073,800. But if you had done a video like that on DK and posted it to the DK HSL then unfortunately I would not accept it. According to the criteria that I established there would need to be a restart demonstrating that the game was on 3+1 settings at least and of course there would need to be evidence that there were no continues that were used unless it was shown to be an original DK Jr board which I do not believe allows continues at all. There are some scores that people have that are higher than what is on the DK HSL but they also understand why a criteria exists and unfortunately drawing lines always leaves some real scores off on the side of omissions. The main reason was given by George, no body but you have empirical evidence that the score is genuine. The criteria was created in order to ensure a higher level of certainty concerning the scores contained on it. This does not mean that your score and others are not genuine, it just means that when a score is allowed on one of these lists that there is undeniable verifiable evidence otherwise the level of certainty is just too low and that is not what we are going for.  Obviously I would prefer to include your score but opening up that part of the criteria is a slippery slope. I just hope this is understood and that you forgive us for wanting a list with a standard for a higher level of certainty for anyone and everyone who may look at it. I personally acknowledge your gaming skills and I have great respect for your abilities, and look forward to higher scores in DK Jr in the near future.

And again what proof do you have that you have never changed your settings?  See the problem there?  You have none.  None whatsoever.   It's just your word.  Yes, I believe your word, but you see the problem don't you?

Chris, this list looks very good. Seems as if you figured out everything with spreadsheet? Once that list gets very long you will want to have that spreadsheet. If you have ranking, and then someone beats say 2nd place then you have to change all the rankings. At least in excel you can just click the edge and drag down to the bottom and it auto fills the rank! :) It also gives you a back up of everything if some reason you accidentally delete your thread. Adding links and stuff like that was the most time consuming. Especially for adding Inp files and youtube unembed links, etc. Looking good. Keep up the good work.

I posted along post but my post was lost.. I'm not retyping it all.

I don'nt know why this site is so hard about that kind of thing.

Anyways I like this interest in DKJR and the scores with it.
I hope this is at the top of the page on the site like the top 10 Dk scores are .
Title: Re: Donkey Kong Jr. High Score List
Post by: corey.chambers on June 27, 2013, 11:56:16 AM
Brian, I am willing to thoroughly explain the reasons behind all of the criteria I created if you could help me understand your objections to it. Have you understood the reasons that I have posted so far concerning a higher level of certainty and supporting evidence? I wanted to create an evidence based list and so I did. I wanted to be able to offer a high level of certainty to anyone and everyone who looks at the list and so I did. Some may prefer an honor based list or a list which may be willing to except evidence that is not comprehensive enough and allows doubt. But that is not the kind of list that I wanted to create. Like I said in the past, "What kind of list do we want?" We could draw the line anywhere and each time people will fall on either side of it. On the spectrum, "where would our list fall?" I wanted a list that would include scores that would stand up to the highest level of scrutiny, so naturally having a list with criteria placing it on the right side of the spectrum was preferred to meet this end. Creating a list like this makes it more reliable, relevant, and respectable. Reliable because people can trust what is on it, relevant because it has more to it than mere conjecture, and respectable because it becomes the place to be and the list to be on in an official community verified manner. Through out the DK HSL thread I wrote lengthy posts to clarify and support these decisions. I do apologize if these decisions ultimately excludes your personal best. There is obviously nothing personal involved and no favoritism is being used. All I can say is if you are going to make another end-game video be sure to include as much evidence as possible by showing a restart process and maybe open up the cabinet and show the pcb. If your score is top-notch then why not support it as much as possible?

I have posted on this earlier Corey  but my post got lost on the way to the website

I did not record the game
It was the first couple of weeks after I had gotten the camcorder.


I just shot an after game video and didn't think I needed to show the boardset or anything since the game was not recorded

When I did this 1,033,400 score .. It Proved that 1,073,800 had really happened .

Plus I did that score live and event with lots of people watching and everything .

Brian, I don't doubt your score or your skill set. But the question is not whether your score is genuine, it had to do with whether it should be on the list given the established criteria. You thought it was a bit too tight of a criteria, I explained why, so I hope that helps.

Thanks! Yeah, I've got it saved. The spreadsheet makes life a lot easier, but as you say, it's adding the links that's time consuming. Thanks again for sharing it.

@Brian: we all know your 1.07M game was 100% genuine, and nobody suspects otherwise - I saw you put up 1.03M live, I have no doubt in my mind that your 1.07M was legitimate. However, as Corey has laid out very clearly, the criteria exists for a good reason. As for listing it on the main page, I disagree. I think DKF is best suited to focus on DK, and keep the other games to their sub-sections. Having it pinned when it's all finished wouldn't be a bad shout, though.

Will these be added?

Ken FU  Really

I'm 1 move away from shattering that record..   Mike knows me and Marky are coming after him.. It's just a matter of time .

When I did this 1,033,400 score .. It Proved that 1,073,800 had really happened .

All getting 1.033,400 proved is you are a good player that still has a LOT to learn before you can start making 'world record attempts'

Not to burst your bubble, but that one move is worth at most 75,000 points.  That means you are still short 200k, and that means you have a lot more than just that one move in order to break the record.

I can think of two easy ways to add about 80k to your end score. First, learn the Dean Move. Second, at the top of the springboard screen don't waste time waiting for the two tightly spaced birds to pass before making your way to the key.

We had kinda a list of scores already before
Title: Re: Donkey Kong Jr. High Score List
Post by: corey.chambers on June 28, 2013, 11:57:20 PM
Brian, I saw a point in making the DK HSL even before the idea of posting the top ten on the top of the front page. Perhaps it is just upsetting to you that if it doesn't happen then you would feel slighted and not have your name on the front page. This is understandable but of course it is something that you will have to work through and process on your own. This would not invalidate good reasons that already exist for a list which Chris is creating. There was a list before but it was not in the format that Chris is putting it in now, nor as comprehensive. It will function just like the DK HSL and I don't think that anyone saw it as a bad idea but rather, I believe, has inspired many to play and improve their scores. There is a lot of wisdom in remaining silent and allowing others to put their hearts into things, such as what Chris is doing with this list, without having to hear a lot of negativity. Why not rather encourage the list and see what we can make of it? You may enjoy it a lot more that way.

Chris, as you can see you are now the moderator of your very own sub-forum. You can see my setup and copy that if you want. What I was thinking about the rules is that instead of creating a new topic for submission rules in your sub-forum, just link my rule thread to your list like I did mine. That way, any time I update mine, it will not have to be changed on yours.

This high score list is definitely motivating me to try to continue my DKjr play and go for the KS soon. I had stopped a while back after a week or so of playing, and I was at almost 200K. I felt at the time that I could start cranking out some longer games at any moment, since I was just starting to get consistent at all the elements when they are at their hardest/fastest difficulty. Next time I go to the arcade, I'll bring my camera and tripod and go for a decent score. I ultimately want about 1.1m in this game, but I'll be fine with an 800k KS in the near future for now.

I saw at Mall of America today that someone local to me got a 963k DKjr score on a 3-in-1 cab. I checked the continues on it and it currently zeros out the scores if you decide to keep playing. The initials were MMG (he had a couple other scores in the 700-800k range as well), but I'm not familiar with those initials. I'll keep my eyes open for other scores by this person, and maybe I'll be able to run into them at some point and tell them about DKF.

Nick, I was wondering if we could put together a high score list for some various smaller aspects of the game such as but not limited to:

1-1
Level 1
Going into first Hideout
After 3 levels
Start (after the first 4 levels)

I am sure these will be smaller and may be able to put them together. I don't know, give it some thought and let me know what you come up with.

I think I've had low 74k going into the first hideout with no deaths before. I know I've had several around/above 72k. I've only played the game on about 4-5 different days. Once I get my multi-cab going, I'll hit this game up more.

A pair of records in the DK Junior HSL have improperly formatted dates:

Rank
   
Score
   
KS
   
Player
   
Date
   
Platform
   
Source
22
818,900
Y
Chris Teter (http://www.twitch.tv/CaptainJivePants)
41929
ArcadeYouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLn3baEgks0)
51
140,100
Darren Olson
37681
ArcadeTG

The serial number 41929 in Chris Teter's record translates to October 17, 2014.  That date is correct per the YouTube source.

The serial number 37681 in Darren Olson's record translates to March 01, 2003.  That date may or may not be correct.  The Twin Galaxies scoreboard reports the verification date as January 09, 1983 (although TG is certainly not immune to database errors).

The date for this record in one of Nick's early ODS-format files is given as 01/09/1983. That file was uploaded to the super-secret Master File thread in February 2014. So, somewhere along the line the number was converted, but the 1983 date appears to be the correct one.

Thanks for that I'll get into as soon as I can.
We've got a pretty bad storm going here and last report was no power for probably 2-3 days.
When the power is back it'll be clean up for a couple if days.
So maby by the weekend it'll be good..


Edit:   Just heard that we probably won't have power till next week so I'll fix shit then.

Here is the scene.
Glad none if them boats are mine :)

I just picked up a DK Jr cabinet today. It has the original board, but the board has the HSS Kit added. Is this still acceptable for posting scores to the list?

Also, if I send the board to Mikes Arcade for a Double DK Upgrade, will I still be eligible to post DK Jr scores on the HSL?  (I understand the Double DK Board is no good for DK HSL)


If I read the rules correctly, I need to video record the game and then show video of the inside of my cabinet including board and controls. Is it possible to do just one video of my inner cabinet so that I don't have to pull it out and open it up each time I improve my score?  Sort of like getting my cabinet verified once?  As long as I show resets in my other vids to demonstrate 3 men etx?


What is the correct setting for the bonus Jumpman for DK Jr?  Currently my cabinet is set to 3 men plus a bonus at 10,000. Is this where I should leave it?

Thanks for your help. I'm certainly not a world record contender, just a beginner, but it would be fun to post a score up on the HSL.

Personally, I don't think anyone should ever DDK their Junior board. The procedure makes permanent physical changes to the board, you end up with DK with Junior sound effects (yuk), a DK that you can't use for competiion (blah), and the surgery costs about as much (or more) as simply buying a DK board outright.

IMO, if it's really important to be able to switch between DK and Junior in the same cab, you can get a switcher (http://www.vector-labs.com/index_dk.html) for that.

DDK just isn't a very good product, it disfigures Junior PCBs, and better alternatives are available.

If I read the rules correctly, I need to video record the game and then show video of the inside of my cabinet including board and controls.

For TG, you can do whatever you feel will give your submission the best chance of being accepted. That would include showing the internals, I would say.

For DKF, I don't think anyone is going to put too much scrutiny on a less than million point game.

One thing that I've never seen anyone try is going through the coin door to get shots of the internals. If you have a flashlight and your camera is small enough (and what phone/webcam isn't?) you could try it that way and it would be much simpler than pulling it out and taking off the back door, etc.

What is the correct setting for the bonus Jumpman for DK Jr?  Currently my cabinet is set to 3 men plus a bonus at 10,000. Is this where I should leave it?


Yes.
