Wow, very good.  Especially on the medium settings submission.
Mentally the Easy settings score was probably more important since I didn't do any intentional suiciding in it and it had a ton of what felt like stupid deaths.  So I think I'm finally about to get past the point where playing straight up scores higher than intentional suicides, which requires a significant higher level of play and starts to open up the potential for the RBS and genuinely high scores.

The Kong-Off / Re: Netherworld (Brisbane, Australia) Kong-off November 11-12 2017

In addition to the Kong off there will be a couple of us playing games on the Monday (they're usually closed)

Will stream if possible, I'll be going for the Galaga WRs (marathon first if that fails then TGTS, depending on time)

Unsure what the others are doing but it should be fun all around, with the chance to put up some good scores since it will be quiet.

General Donkey Kong Discussion / Re: Best Multi PCB to use for score submissions?

I've looked over the ArcadeSD Manual and FAQ on their site. Cannot find any information on version of MAME. I filled out a contact form to have them reach out to us with more information.

According to a senior Member (nearly 50,000 posts) on KLOV, ArcadeSD uses their own custom emulator. Please see attached screenshot from his post:

Hi Wessm Yes doing better, supprised there is no additional posts on this thread.

The arcade SD is a great PCB. Not interested in whats official at TG but would take the PCB requirements stated here seriously.

The only multi PCBs that are officially accepted here are the older x-in-1 boards (60-in-1, 39-in-1, etc.). Everything else is on a case-by-case basis. The older x-in-1s absolutely require a 4-way restrictor, since they're based on an older version of MAME that doesn't force DK into 4-way mode. Another DKF member submitted a score using the GameElf board, which I determined to be acceptable. As far as ArcadeSD is concerned, I really don't know much about it. So, for starters, I would need to determine what version of MAME it's based on. If you already know that would be great. At the very least, all multi PCBs submission would require complete footage of the entire game and a walkthrough showing the hardware setup.

I've looked over the ArcadeSD Manual and FAQ on their site. Cannot find any information on version of MAME. I filled out a contact form to have them reach out to us with more information. I've attached the ArcadeSD manual to this post for reference, and will post the email response I get from Phoenix Arcade when it arrives. I hope you get to playing or streaming soon, Tim. Please let me know if I can be of any help.

Also, for the record, I think that any true 4-way joystick should be acceptable (if necessary for the version of MAME running).

Donkey Kong 3 / Re: Points available from the suicide trick in DK3
« Last post by homerwannabee on October 20, 2017, 06:30:50 AM »
I like the fact that even if you do the sac technique perfectly you can't get to the RBS. Makes it that much more impressive. 1m is realistically a bit low even on hard
Have you tried hardest Andrew?  One million on hard isn't so hard.  Getting a million on hardest is another level crazy hard.  Just getting the super spray on the gold board on board 29 and after is a challenge in itself.  The clock goes faster.  Donkey Kong slides down those ropes.  And if you're not on point, the game will kill you.
So don't confuse hard with hardest.  They are two different animals.  As far as I know, I'm the only one whose hit one million on hardest.  13 people have done hard.  Again.  Just try hardest.  If you can get 500k on hardest you're doing better than 1 million on hard.
