Pretty sure that's Tim Sczerby who has a higher score on the list already.

Why is Tim doing this weird "anonymizing pseudonym" stuff? I don't understand the angle here. Does he think anyone is ostracisizing him?

Especially ironic when you consider that he clearly has a huge beef with the name "Tim Sczerby" being erased from history...

If we are accepting Inp, well, MAME scores, I think it will be a good idea to only accept those that have come from the Wolf - TwinGalaxies MAME, because I have seen that some MAME programs have a way of slowing the emulation to about 98% and it is hard to tell the difference. Does anyone else think that we should be specific about which MAME program is used due to this issue?

MARP accepts any average recorded speed over 90%.

That may be a tad lenient, but I would say that a 2-5 percent speed drop is not going to give anyone an advantage.

As for WolfMAME-only INPs, I must agree, not because of emulation speed, but because Wolf disallows pausing, which WOULD be an advantage in DK.

Obviously the rules for what is allowed on the list is still taking shape. How does anyone feel about the most recent update? Anything you think needs to be added?

Rules: All scores must be either verified by TwinGalaxies, have been eye witnessed by a member of the DK Community, or played on Twitch (even if replay of inp) or any equivalent. MARP submissions or any other INP’s used must be WolfMAME-only INPs due to advantages allowed by other emulators. Screenshots are not adequate evidence of a genuine score. All scores on this list must be peer-reviewed in one manner or another. I apologize if this rule excludes anyone's personal best but I wanted this list to function at least one step higher than an honor system.

I'll submitt a score as soon as I break 500,000.  Until then I'm on hiatus until my teaching summer break.  Actually, screw it,  you can put me down for 227,000 so I can be shamed!

Was your game Twitch or met any of the other criteria for the list? Sorry to ask. Your one of the streamers right?

How does anyone feel about the evidence concerning Shayne Black? Does this meet the criteria for the list? Is Mr. Black good for 905K?

Sure.  If Mark was there and witnessed it live, that's good enough for me.

It looks like the score for him is only 870,300, at least according to the video of him live. This is what I will add to the list.

Hey Corey, the date of Shayne Black's 870,300 killscreen game is 08/18/2010.

"1984" refers to the 1984 Arcade in Springfield, MO.

Here is the CAGDC reference I found for his 905k high score:

EDIT:  Shayne's signature over at CAGDC lists the date as 08/19/2010, so perhaps the game finished after midnight.

It looks as if it has been verified that he is good for a score of 905,700 as of 8/14/12. Is that what it looks like to you?
