Donkey Kong High Score List General Discussion
« on: April 21, 2013, 11:40:22 AM »
This is the general discussion thread for the Donkey Kong High Score List. Feel free to discuss anything concerning the list. IF you prefer you can always create a new topic. If it is relevant and needs to stay separate from the general discussion thread then that is great, otherwise it can probably just be merged to this general discussion thread. Please note that this thread and the posts in it contain the original discussions that used to be in the old DK HSL format.

MARP, etc

- Tim Sczerby streamed a 1,037 game on Justin TV a few years ago, which is his PB as far as I know. Am not sure of the exact score, I'll see if I can find it (unless someone else knows).
- Steve Wiltshire is up to 1,016,xxx. I don't know if he streamed it though.
- Robbie Lakeman's million-point game was streamed right?
- Phil's million point game is at MARP: 1,005,700
- Jeff Harrist got 889,100 at Kato's Kave on November 11th, 2012 (photo is on Facebook). Since he is our Fearless Leader, I vote that this score be Donkey Kong Forum official!
- My PB is actually 893,400 on arcade but I'm not gonna upload the video just to prove that I got a score which I can beat and plan to beat, so I'll stick with my 849,800 MAME score on this list. It will motivate me.  :D

These happened at the WC rematch #2, 3/16/2013:
- Ross Benziger 990,100
- Jeff Wolfe 973,100
- Svavar Gunnar Gunnarsson   919,100
- Jon McKinnell   905,700   

(Incidentally, I'll be damned, I just clicked on Phil T's name and he broke 700K on DK Japan about a month and a half ago! That beats Hank's WR! Nice!)

These are the performance dates to fix (so far):

Dean - 4/21/2012
Hank - 11/1/2012
Jeff Willms (MAME) - 8/15/2011
Mark - 8/7/2012
Estel (arcade) - 2/11/2012
Kyle Goewert - 4/27/2012

My suggestion with this list would be to get rid of the duplicate player entries for MAME and arcade and just leave the player's best of the two.

Ditto the getting rid of duplicate names idea. I also got around 735k the day before the kong off 2 and I had several people on twitch witness this, as well as Eric Howard and some other people watched it live . Ken house had the archive of this game at some point, but I don't know if he ever watched it or saved it. I didn't know if this score would count for this list, but either way, I am fine. Like Chris said about his score, I'll just beat my score someday soon anyway as well.

Thanks Chris, but I'll have to stick with my 874,400 that I did during the Wilcard Rematch #2 since it was fully recorded. ;)

Many of the TG dates listed are incorrect.  It's a fairly consistent error throughout the Twin Galaxies "beta" scoreboard, particularly for players who submitted multiple scores for a given game and track.  The correct score is posted, but has been attached to a date from a prior submission.

Take Dean's MAME entry, as an example:

TG  -  1,167,400  -  Dean Saglio  -  04/19/2010  -  MAME

Now let's look at his actual DK submissions (the 3 most recent) for the total points variation:

TG  -  1,167,400  -  Dean Saglio  -  04/21/2012  -  MAME
TG  -  1,153,000  -  Dean Saglio  -  04/02/2011  -  MAME
TG  -  1,136,400  -  Dean Saglio  -  04/19/2010  -  MAME


See what I mean?  The score is accurate, but the date corresponds to an item he submitted 2 years earlier.

By the way, it looks like Dean is due for another huge game any day now.  April seems to be "World Record Month", if the past 3 years are any indication.

DK High Score 
952,100
  (L22-1)
DK Level 1-1 
13,400
DK No Hammer 
535,300
  (L15-2)

Yes, remove duplicate names (MAME & Arcade) and just keep each player's highest. Confuses the list too much.

I though it was good to bring that list over, but left it up to Hank since he authored it, but I see this isn't the same list. Not sure why another list is starting if we already had one. Keeping track of two lists will be confusing, and Hank's is more accurate than this one, if you're including "peer review" and not just TG reviewed.

Also, my high (peer review) is 1,026,700
