Something just hit me about that video and I want each of you to watch it now and tell me if I'm wrong. First, is the audio is synced up with video? It seems it is when Billy is talking about the board swap.

When Billy goes to start his DK Jr. game at the end on the video, the credit is in the machine and he talks a little about his tie then hits play. LISTEN REALLY CLOSE. The game starts THEN you here his hand hit the start button milliseconds after.

Now if that's just audio lag, there isn't lag when they are talking about the board swap.

I was once wondered that what if video was ran into the monitor and Billy was in front the machine simulating the game play. What is that blue box next to the PC with the wires coming out.

I checked for audio sync issues and everything seemed to be ok, but I only listened and watched to be certain that words matched lip movements.

The PCB being pulled out of the game is lacking the volume control pot where it would normally located on a DK 2 board upright. From that observation its clearly a DKJR PCB.

I'm not sure if anyone has gone into that much detail (filtering the video), but the fact that a DKJR board is swapped for a DKJR board has been established for quite some time (and was part of the initial set of posts in the TG dispute thread).

What I'd really like to know, and maybe your processing of the video will help, is what's on that laptop screen. :)

It's funny that you mentioned it because I've been wondering about that too. To me, it looks like some kind of webcam or video window on the right, with a partially obscured picture of a circuit board on the left. I've tried various methods to make it more clear, but without much success.

It's very clear to see #4 and #5 areas in the original video even without the post processing to be from DK jr board both before and after the "swap".

It was not entirely clear to me, but now it is. I had to be certain, and others may feel the same way.

I appreciate the effort but I hope you can also appreciate that if you wish for this to be taken as objective evidence that you will need to document, in detail, what you have done to the video to "enhance" it.

I used Adobe Premiere Pro with a sharpen filter (set to 10) and a shadow highlight filter (highlight 0, shadow 50). In addition to the timecode overlay and a simple invert filter on the second video segment. It's nothing fancy, and frankly I'm surprised that it was not done before now. If need be, I can provide a screenshot of the precise settings used, but I think that would be overkill. Anyone with basic video editing skills can replicate the process, provided they have the required software.

I watched the video and it looks like the exact same board taken out and put back in. Is that what your trying to show?

Indeed, it certainly looks that way to me, but I wanted to give people a chance to make up their own minds.

The truth of the matter is (I've been dying to say that), I am now 100% convinced that the before and after boards are the same exact Donkey Kong Junior board being removed and reinstalled. To be absolutely certain, I've watched the video countless times, often at variable speeds using a back and forth technique called video scrubbing, and frame by frame.

In my mind, this single act of intentional deception leaves no room for doubt about the motive.

I'm open to suggestions, as long as it's not Youtube or Facebook because they tend to mangle videos. I also prefer that this information be public.

1) Upload it to mega.nz.

2) post the link

I used the previously suggested file sharing website. Here is the download link, just in case it never gets posted to Twin Galaxies. Judge for yourselves.

edit: PS - I will say I thought the original video was blatantly a DK Jr to DK Jr board swap and I see the exact same thing in the "enhanced" video.  Not trying to take anything from your efforts, but if the conclusion is the same, I'm unclear as to what we gain.
