Re: Level 5+ Board Records, Top 3 Level 5 "STARTS"

Hey Dave, I may be mistaken, but I think Ross is suggesting that we track the high scores for each of the L01 to L04 stages individually (not necessarily within the same game).  In other words, compiling a list of the "best ever" scores for each of the first 14 boards will serve as an approximation of what the ultimate start might be.

Maintaining a list of the best starts for a single game is also valuable information, but I don't believe it's what Ross was getting at.

Oops, I see you're right now. I misread it. Wow, tracking all 14 boards would be kind of hard to keep up with, but I see Dean just listed a good baseline. I'll just throw those number in there as baselines and if someone wants to submit a score over it, go for it. I'll try to keep it updated.

I got a 15,400 "in game" (sort of) L5+ barrel screen tonight. I say sort of because the game ended really early because I was already disgusted by dying on the previous elevator screen, and the next pie factory was pretty unforgiving. Yeah there was luck involved because the screen was ran pretty routinely, but I got fortunate grouping up top, etc. Still, it's a pb for me as far as I can recall.

I had a 13,700 1-2 yesterday.  100% luck.  Can upload the video if anyone wants to see.  500x1, 800x4 with the 1st hammer.  I'm catching up to Vincent!  Just need 1 more 800.

This topic really deserves some participation, so I'm happy to revive it.

I'm not claiming any records, just posting what I've got.

Level 5-1 Barrels:  15,300  (achieved on 08/16/2014)

It's not my personal best, but I have no documentation for anything higher, so there we are.

http://www.twitch.tv/stella_blue/c/4918661

I failed to complete Level 05 in this game.  I had 4 embarrassing deaths, all caused by irreversible brain damage.

Final Score:  190,900  (ending on Level 5-5)

EDIT:  Attached the game summary, as supporting evidence of a "real" game.

Here's a personal best from last year:

Level 5-4 Elevators:  8,600  (achieved on 09/15/2013)

After suffering consecutive deaths on the Level 5-3 barrels, I was down to my last man.  The game had already fallen apart, so I played the elevator board more aggressively than I normally would.

Final Score:  287,500  (ending on Level 7-6)

I'll claim the record on this one, at least until something better is posted:

Level 2-3 Rivets:  14,800  (achieved on 09/04/2014)

Total hammer smashes:  11  (2 x 800, 8 x 500, 1 x 300)

http://www.twitch.tv/stella_blue/c/5062899

This game had 2 other personal bests:
  • End of Level 02:  53,800
  • End of Level 03:  91,400
Unfortunately, the game was marred by 4 early deaths, each one 100% preventable.  Ugh.

Final Score:  130,000  (ending on Level 4-3)

Congrats Scott, pretty high!

A lot of you guys are getting pretty high pre-level 5 scores. If you can take it to the end the top 10 would look very different. I'm still in the take-it-easy pre-level 5 mode, but can still manage to stay on track.

Congrats Scott, pretty high!

Thanks, Dave.  Of course, it was 95% luck and 5% more luck.

In my previous post, I also submitted a score of 8,600 on a Level 5-4 elevator stage.

http://donkeykongforum.com/index.php?topic=107.msg18158#msg18158

On page 1 of this topic, you have 9,000 listed as a baseline number for L05+ elevators, which I believe is too high.  While 9K is certainly possible, I've never heard of anyone actually doing it.

EDIT:  Steely Dan takes the stage in Boston this Saturday night.  41 hours and counting.

Hey Dave,

I have one more for you:

Level 3-1 Barrels:  14,000  (achieved on 10/06/2014)

http://www.twitch.tv/stella_blue/c/5251156

This matches the 14k baseline number you currently have listed.  I'm sure a number of other players have scored higher, but I seem to be the only one submitting anything at the moment.

I benefited from 21 hammer smashes (13 bottom, 8 top).

The rest of the game was dismal.  Levels 01 and 02 were both low-scoring (every board seemed like a struggle) and Level 04 featured a parade of 3 deaths (100% avoidable, as usual).

EDIT:  It's not a big deal, but my last name is misspelled on Page 1 (s/b "Cunningham").

Jeff Willms had a 14,300 Level 1 rivet in his 25,700 Level 1 clip:

Hey Dave,

I see that 11,700 is listed as the current record for a conveyor stage.  I have no idea what my personal best is, so I'm submitting this score for now:

Level 7-2 Pie Factory:  12,300  (achieved on 11/28/2014)

http://www.twitch.tv/stella_blue/c/5611940

The attached summary suggests that I played the following barrel board (7-3) with a paper bag over my head.  Given the results, maybe I should have.

Final Score:  393,100  (ending on Level 9-5)

I'd like to see more participation in this thread, to determine what some of the "true" records are.  Come on guys, is 12k on a pie factory really that rare?  I don't think so.

DK High Score

Nice work, Andrew.  If we can unearth a few more scores for the (as of yet) unpopulated categories, the list will become more meaningful.
