I want Jeff at Romhacks to make D2K JR

I would love to see this braze kit made just like DK got. I'm guessing this would never happen but. I want to drum up some support.

I would play the hell out of that!  :D

Pretty confident that Jeff K. isn't into Junior though. And I feel like D2K was a "lightning in a bottle" type thing that came together due to a confluence of special circumstances.

That would be very cool to see an arcade sequel like D2K for Junior, but yeah it's highly unlikely to happen. If it did, for the traditional screens they could fix what was "broken", meaning finding a way to make point-pressing more interesting. The original DK was fortunate to have this aspect of the game accidentally more entertaining since the designers of both games were not aware of the killscreen bug by the time of both game's release. So, probably for the Jungle screen, an element needs to be added to force you to finish the screen, like the fireballs do on DK. Either do that also for the Hideout, or making the timer faster would help a lot. As far as adding new screens would go, a good place to start would be to add an arcade version of the prototypical "5th screen" that was playable via the Colecovision Adam. I think it's a well designed level... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9CqzBNxJ3k

Oh yeah I would too, for sure. I bet a few members here would pick it up, as would some at KLOV.

Maybe we would be better off finally doing something like this in-house, especially if a few of us are willing to throw some $$$ around <Tim>.  I'd like to think some members here would be interested in taking on various parts of the job to get a coherent "something" done, at the end it would just be a matter of figuring out how to cheaply and effectively "port" it over to the dkjr hardware

I'm willing to PayPal somebody that can program game data and put this together and I'll throw in my ideas. Worst case I'm out some money and time. Reguardless it's worth a shot to put time into a hobby I love.

I guess Jeffs been out of the game since 09'. As for ideas seems like KLOV enjoys derailing threads and being negitive. Not all members I know simpson99 is on both im not sure of his real name but Ive has nothing but positive interactions with him.
As for level thoughts the big gripe I hear from some DK players is that the large difference is there's nothing to push you threw the levels like the fireballs. I havr killscreened jr. And it's true you can sit in the hideout once you mastered the pattern. We know that the sprite color yellow is used in the bananas I think of you would have a extra "roaming" yellow snap jaw on the vines it would make pressing the vines more challenging. Also you can change the orientation of the vines. As for nitpicker level. I'd like to see two springs maybe one at original spot then another level with another spring that leads to the nitpick pattern area. I'd like to see that extra lvl marky d posted should be in there. Leave the chains like D2K left the rivets alone. Then for hideout maybe one more orange spark in middle level I don't want it impossible but let me know what you think of changes

Not being that tech savvy in the program world QA? Who else would we need I know that Clay C. Did that Pauline hack in 2013 maybe. If anyone knows him maybe he's a source to reach out as well. If anyone has contacts in that business or additional ideas that wud be awesome

I did get an email from Jeff yesterday. He said he has had multiple requests to make
A D2KJR multi game since he released D2K, however he doesn't have the time to devote to a project like this now. Who knows maybe it could still happen some day.
