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.
Im am happy to do lists for any of these variations. The only thing I will say is I will not put any list up untill we have at least 2 submissions to the list.
This shouldnt be to hard  to get
Dk PB 391800
Dk jr PB 42000
CK 481400 lvl 19-1

These are very nice George. I too have posted the videos in my My Donkey Kong Junior Ambitions with the following scores so far:

12,600 on 1-1
22,700 Level 1
72,900 going into first Hideout
106,700 after 3
167,300 Start

Sorry that these are not in the submissions thread. So we have two for all 5. :D I will submit any new ones in the submissions thread. Thanks Nick! :D

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
41929
ArcadeYouTube
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).

DK High Score 
952,100
  (L22-1)
DK Level 1-1 
13,400
DK No Hammer 
535,300

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 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.
