General Donkey Kong Discussion / Re: Best controls for Donkey Kong?

I've mostly learned the game on MAME with a standard keyboard. Transitioning to a cab with a stick doesn't take too long.

I've found keyboard to be much easier when concerned with the finer movements, but mileage will vary as it really depends on what you're used to. I've always argued that keyboard gives an advantage but it doesn't hold much merit when you consider the top 3 all-time scores were done with a stick

:)

Wow! Very interesting! And how much does the Donkey Kong PCB Board costs and where (or which site) I really need to purchase it for you? I've seen one at Ebay;it costs 50 dollars plus Shipping & Handling;and it's a repair service for only 4/2 tkg boards.


I've got several of them. Happy to sell you a DK PCB for $225 + Shipping. Feel free to PM me.

General Donkey Kong Discussion / Best controls for Donkey Kong?
« Last post by pcfreak324 on January 07, 2018, 02:42:34 AM »
I'm interested in your prefered controls for Donkey Kong.

I found an older thread at twingalaxies where the Mag-Stik Plus was recommended because of its short throw. Some websites claim that this stick is not precise enough in its stock configuration. They recommend to swap out the microswitches and the gate of the stick.

I only play the game on my PC with Mame or the inaccurate NES port on my nes. These are the controls tested in the order of preference (from best to worst):

1. mechanical Cherry G80 keyboard (MX-Blue switches) with Mame's default keyboard configuration
2. 8bitdo Sanwa stick (buttons used for directions, similar to a hitbox)
3. NES dogbone or original controller
4. Zippyy stick (4 way)
5. 8bitdo FC30 Sanwa Edition (8 way)

I need controls where I can quickly (short throw) and precisely hit the directions when I'm under pressure, especially in the barrel and the spring stage where I have to move and climb up very fast. It seems to be easiest with the keyboard. I imagine that controllers with a split dpad (like the Playstation one) might be a good choice, too.

What are your experiences?

Hey I wanted to Submit a score for my son Isaac Barron. Do I need to create an account for him on dkf?
I attached his game
Fyi he is 8 years old  :)


No need to create a separate account; you can submit for him. So, congrats to Isaac on his 15,600 score and welcome to the DKF HSL!

Sock should definitely be compensated, but it seems that the cab market for selling dk remix is kinda limited. I wish there were a way to get him paid and hit the mame audience as well as the cab owners.

 :) ;) Totally Agree!

:) ;) Ok. And I've heard that the NEC D780C-1 Z80 CPU is incompatible for the Sock Master's Donkey Kong Remix and Deranged High Score Save Kit.


Actually John has fixed this quite some time ago and the kits are now compatible with the NEC chip.

The work around before was easy though, buy or take a different z80 and use that, but all new kits work fine now.

A 5 minute look at US Ebay.com and I found 3 DK arcade cabs. Each was under $1,000 so grab yourself a bargain cabinet.

Then buy the remix pbc from Sock_Master and you can play as much Remix as you want.

Remix should NOT be released for free on Mame, Sock did a hell of a lot of work and should be paid for his skill,
time and contribution to the DK gaming scene.

Buy a cabinet, they are a worthwhile investment. Cabinets hold their value so you will always get your money back if you decide to sell
