OK, I saw the replay.  There were times where you simply where on point with some of these boards, and you did everything right.  Very nice watch.  Congrats again! 8)

OK, I'm basically going to update this every time I get a new high on one of these games the next day.  So at first it'll be daily, but it'll eventually become weekly.

Progression of high scores for Carnival
3680
6830
15,520
16,360
18,370
21,480
23,770

Time spent 2hrs 31 minutes in total

Galaga high score
283,510

Time spent on Galaga 44 minutes total

The highest I got was level 4 for Carnival.  Haven't yet started save stating yet.  I like to get a feel for the game before I do that.  Things I learned.
1)Gotta get the flags before I can clear a level.  2) Getting the bonus is a waste.  It give less than 500 points.  Gotta focus on more important things.  3)In order to get the bonus on the top left hand of the screen, all you have to do is shoot at it, and hit it.

As far as Galaga, well 283k isn't even close to my all time highest.  I got this on my first game, and my next two game sucked.

Wow, you did it!  You're member of the RBS club.  Half surprised that it came so quickly since your last game was one million lower.  Still, I had a clue when you rattled off that over one million Donkey Kong 3 on hardest score.  I thought that your easy score of two million at that time should be WAY higher because of that.  Big, big ups on this!  8)

Need a weekly log with some stats and progression of your scores.  This should be interesting as Carnival will take some serious time and effort to figure out how to get past stage 5 and above.  Would love to hear about the things you discover along the way.   Happy gaming.

Easy marathon

3,272,100
Reached the repetitive blue screen on stage 160 and died a couple of stages afterwards. Super stoked about this as it was looking like another ~2m game but managed to string a couple of good lives together.

Can't upload submission as it exceeds the 4000kb limit. Heres the link to the INP at MARP

TY :)

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.
