How much money are we talking here? I have zero sense what these events cost.

I have one of the biggest NYC digital media companies working on spreading the word OUTSIDE of our local community. I would love to bring a whole new breed of competitors to the fold. It is very disconcerting hearing over and over again how the Kong Off should be retired and we should focus on a new game. Imagine a whole new wave of players coming in to jump start the Renaissance., This event has literally no $ behind it. Donations are extremely welcomed Putting an epic event together {having always going out of pocket} has left me in an extreme stress situation. I'm sorry if I am not coming across as happy as I used to be. ANYBODY feel free to contact me by text at 908.797.7901. I need help , $ and psychological evaluation. lol

Hey Richie, it's great to hear from you!

I know that others would agree but I for one am extremely grateful for everything that you've contributed to this community over the years.  Your events have all been very memorable experiences for me that I'm glad that I was lucky enough to participate in.

As for this upcoming event, up until recently I would have thought that I would definitely have to pass on it, but as luck would have it some recent events have improved my situation and I am now at least 50/50 and have started looking into the necessary flights and travel details.  If you and Jeff want to post a firm deadline for commitment just let us know or if you just want everyone to hurry up that's cool too and totally understandable in preparation for the event.  I will try to get things figured out for myself soon one way or the other.

Hey, after talking to Jeff he made it sound like I may have hurt some feelings with my previous post. I have been busting my ass trying to make this Kong Off 6 as good as the last few. I am having a terrible few months and sometimes my posts dont translate well. I was unaware Jeff had the contestant list under control.
I am sorry if I came across like a dick. I just want the website to launch and right now the player list /bios is our bottleneck. Please help Jeff get this list locked in asap. Thanks for understanding.

If by a certain date we don't have 10, dedicated machines could be turned into wildcards if need be, otherwise the current method seems to be working OK.

Once a few more confirm/pull-out we'll be nearer to the 8-10 needed.

Edit: I certainly donít think I should have a dedicated cabinet and would be happy if I just watched and hung out.

Donkey Kong High Score Lists / Re: Score Submissions
« Last post by xelnia on January 13, 2018, 09:02:17 PM »
Welcome to DKF! Unfortunately I was unable to play back your INP.  :( The INP looks like a WolfMAME 0.189 INP, and I used the Windows and Linux versions of 0.189, but the playback desyncs very early in the game (meaning the game dies off, but I can still see your inputs as if you're still playing). Did you use a different front-end for WolfMAME, or a different build?

I compiled the WolfMAME V0.189 sources on my Mac and use this build for playing and recording DK sessions. To be honest I do not have a clue why the resulting INP does cause such issues on a Windows or Linux system... Bad luck for me, maybe I'll switch to the Windows build of WolfMAME running in a VM on my system and try that out.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your effort and letting me know of the issues!


Ok, that makes sense as I've seen that issue before. Unfortunately, I don't have a Mac to verify scores (a newer one anyway), so if it's not too much a trouble, creating a Windows/Linux INP would be greatly appreciated. We certainly want to get you on the scoreboard, so we'll work something out! Thanks for your patience!

So, another try. This time the inp was recorded on a Windows 7 machine running WolfMAME v0.189 and can hopefully be verified. The score itself is not as good as that from my first submission but it's still ok (at least for me), so let's try and get it on the scoreboard ;)

This one worked perfectly! Thanks! Your score has been verified and added to the DKF HSL. Hope to see more scores from you soon!

Hey Jeff, and the rest of the DK community. is still a work in progress, as I was asking for player updates Jeff informed me that only 5 top 12 players have officially signed up. (Was Sean from Florida one of the 5?)  ( I really do not want to go live with the site until the player profiles are exciting and a plenty.) I saw that Estel Goffinett just put up a million plus game. Give me a call when you can Jeff, Feeling a tad bummed that the website release was being delayed by contestant enthusiasm, I feel it's time to  toss out this idea. If the usual players do not confirm with say a few weeks, We should offer up their spots to players such as Andrew Barrow, Estel Goffinett, Ken House and other extremely active Donkey Kong Players. The Australian Kong off at The Netherworld arcade allowed anyone to participate. It made it very interesting. If our champions Hank Chien, Dean Saglio, Vincent Lemay Jeff Wilms, Steve Wiltshire Mark Keil and all the other regulars cannot commit by a fair cut off date lets throw a monkey wrench in and give the event to the players who most appreciate it. Just an idea. If your name was not mentioned do not feel slighted. this post was fueled by emotion and straight off the top of my head. Opinions? Jeff, please give me a call after this post settles in a bit. Thanks guys

Or have a couple cabs open for open players. $20 per quarter drop to fund the prize pool and event.

Then people like me who have big egos with nothing to back it up yet can throw money down and compete.
I like this idea as well.  I'd be willing to throw down $20 to get my score up there with the greats.  Even if it's just 200k. :)
