there were about 20 people in the arcade at the time but not many people gave a shit about it, playing Mario kart and pinball but the girl behind The counter loved it, and The guys next to me playing mortal Kombat watched it Highfives, hugs and cold beers, it was Awesome!
Just did my first Donkey Kong Killscreen . unfortunely l did not record it, cause im in Australia but did it live at Bartronia Arcade in Melbourne. Thank you everyone here at The DK Forum for The support, still cant believe it. Final score was 852.500
Sweet! How many people were able to be there to celebrate with you at the Killscreen?!
852,500 first KS
Unfortunely I did not record it, but did it live at Bartronica in Melbourne, Australia. I dont have much proof, but still hope it's enough to make it onto the High score list
Congrats sir! In order to put this on the High Score List, we need to verify the lives and bonus setting. Did anyone record the end of the game and a reset showing the lives/bonus settings?
Thanks Jeremy, I tried to opload a video of it here, where I show its 3 man settings right after the game, but with no luck, I will send it to you on facebook instead
Johnny has sent me the video that shows the start of a new game after his KS. I've attached the video, as well as some Facebook photos taken after the game, to this post. The video shows 3-man settings, as well as game sounds during the attract mode, indicating that this board had a Braze high score save kit installed. While the Bonus setting can't be determined from the evidence provided I believe this score can still be added to our HSL for the following reasons:1) Older TG scores maybe have been played with a 10k Bonus setting.2) There are several Auxiliary Rules that support the inclusion of this score:
Auxiliary Rules: The auxiliary rules were created to evaluate scores that could not be submitted according to the normative rules. It is understood that there are occasions where the normative rules were either unknown or could not be followed for one reason or another. These rules evaluate the evidence to determine if it is sufficient in order to verify a score with a high degree of certainty.
1. Scores that were achieved live at an event, such as the Kong Off, or other live venue where your game can be observed live by others, particularly long standing members of the Donkey Kong Community will be accepted.
2. In case of videos that demonstrate that the game was played live at an arcade in front of witnesses may be acceptable if other video requirements are not met.
4. Any videos, such as those posted on YouTube, which shows only the final moments of a game must demonstrate a restart to prove that the game was started with a 3 lives setting.
11. The cumulative effect of multiple evidences will also play a factor in the acceptance of a score even if those evidences are not adequate alone.
I believe the evidence weighs in favor of adding this score to HSL, so I have done so. Congrats Johnny! You can see your killscreen score on the updated HSL
