Will be going for the DK3 Japan Marathon record tomorrow
« on: February 09, 2014, 07:27:55 PM »
My channel is DK3champ on Justin.tv

I'll start at 7:30 Pacific 10:30 Eastern time A.M.

It's going to be a long game about 8 or 9 hours.  :)

I already have the record but it a tad bit low for my taste.

Edit:  I fixed my sound issues, and it sounds much better.

Thanks to all who came by to watch.  Came up short with a 9,139,300 score.   I did have a crazy long last man, and a crazy long first man though.  When I was finished I saw that I had 12 viewers.  I think that maybe a record! Kreygasm

I watched for a big chunk of it.

I don't know how one goes about getting l337 Lounge involved in stuff, but DK3 is actually super-perfect for that show. The game is fast-paced, easy to understand, and expert play looks impressive (a lot more impressive-looking than DK or Junior, which are mostly happening "beneath the surface").

I think you should hold out to make another attempt and see if you can get l337 Lounge involved! PSP has a relationship with Jace Hall, and you have a good relationship with PSP, so maybe he could help?

I watched the last half hour

Well done George, very cool to see a master at work on a game that doesn't seem to get a great deal of attention. If I had more room I wouldn't mind a nice DK3.

Good job!

Very nice. For a gamer to get more points on one of these classic arcade games means a tremendous increase in skill.  <Walter> Others will do or say whatever to make people think they are the best.  <Billy> Great score!

Thanks for watching, and thanks for everyone who gave me props, and all the kind words.  I tried the lounge 1337 thing, and I didn't know how to message them.  Also I will be taking a little break from the Internet for the most part in couple of days anyways. 

Well I am going to do this one more time tomorrow, but this time I am going for my  Donkey Kong 3 Twin Galaxies 5 man tournament settings record on MAME(American version of course).  Same time at 7:30 A.M.  5 man of course is a much shorter game.  More like an hour and 15 minutes to get the record.  So it's no big deal if I fail because I will get a few tries to get this right tomorrow.  If for some reason I break the record right off the bat I guess I play some DK Junior for a little bit.

This will be the last streaming event I do for awhile, so be there or be square. 8)

Is this the 1,403,600 score?

OK, in a few minutes I'm starting.  It'll probably be months before I stream again. :)

Well today was a pretty successful day of DK3.  I broke two of my DK3 records.

I got a new 5 man TGTS MAME record of 1,513,000. 
I got what I think is a world record for hardest marathon settings with a score of 2,407,300.

While hardest settings may seem like a low score I suggest anyone to play the game on that setting.  I think some people would find getting a million on Donkey Kong Junior easier than getting a million on Donkey Kong 3 hardest settings.
