Hmm.  Ok. 

I'll be deleting the DK Romsets from my folders.  Why bother?

Holy hell.

Easy marathon

3,272,100
Reached the repetitive blue screen on stage 160 and died a couple of stages afterwards. Super stoked about this as it was looking like another ~2m game but managed to string a couple of good lives together.

Can't upload submission as it exceeds the 4000kb limit. Heres the link to the INP at MARP

TY :)


Congratulations sir! Wish I would have stayed awake for the whole game. >.< Your score has been verified and updated on the DK3 HSL. You can find some more information in your congrats thread. :)

Donkey Kong Milestone Achievements / Repetitive Barra Screen!
« Last post by xelnia on November 19, 2017, 03:02:57 PM »
Congratulations to Andrew Barrow, the 3rd person to reach Donkey Kong 3's "Repetitive Blue Screen"! Playing on marathon settings on Difficulty 1, Andrew's final score was 3,272,100, reaching board 161.

For those unfamiliar with DK3, there's a glitch in the level cycle that occurs when a player reaches board 160. Board 159 is a standard "blue" board which should be followed a grey board, then a gold board, then another blue board, etc. However, all boards after 159 are blue (until the game loops after board 256 and the original cycle is reset). Only DK3 master/world record holder George Riley and the legendary Ben Falls had reached this part of the game. Riley is the only player to have reached the RBS on anything other than Difficulty 1 marathon settings.

Prior to this game, Andrew's PB was 2,256,900, reaching board 114. Below you'll find some stats on the 37 lives used in the game.

Heres a (very crude) excel spreadsheet which you can enter your PB and it'll give you the rank associated with each
Easy way to keep track of where you're at, keeping everything in one place and easily updated if you improve :)

I'd like it to return an OVERALL RANK based on the lowest values in the "meets rank req'd" field but couldn't get it to work, unsure if I was using the right function (LOOKUP?)
Be sure to use the correct annotation (KS, RBS or N) and update both columns as it looks for the higher rank first

Also Score and KS/RBS are independent in the Masters criteria so if your current PB isnt a KS or RBS but you've achieved those previously you still qualify, so make sure to put that in the spreadsheet too!

:)

EDIT: By converting the Ranks to numbers I was able to get it to show the lowest value. Theres probably a better way to do it. Updated spreadsheet attached

Edit Edit: Doesn't take into account if you haven't earned one of the ranks. Better get your scores up if you want it to work
Should be fixed now

OK, I saw the replay.  There were times where you simply where on point with some of these boards, and you did everything right.  Very nice watch.  Congrats again! 8)

OK, I'm basically going to update this every time I get a new high on one of these games the next day.  So at first it'll be daily, but it'll eventually become weekly.

Progression of high scores for Carnival
3680
6830
15,520
16,360
18,370
21,480
23,770

Time spent 2hrs 31 minutes in total

Galaga high score
283,510

Time spent on Galaga 44 minutes total

The highest I got was level 4 for Carnival.  Haven't yet started save stating yet.  I like to get a feel for the game before I do that.  Things I learned.
1)Gotta get the flags before I can clear a level.  2) Getting the bonus is a waste.  It give less than 500 points.  Gotta focus on more important things.  3)In order to get the bonus on the top left hand of the screen, all you have to do is shoot at it, and hit it.

As far as Galaga, well 283k isn't even close to my all time highest.  I got this on my first game, and my next two game sucked.
