Your PCB lives on as one of the 4 boarsets in my Pauline Edition DK.

I would have saved that machine had it not been 2200 miles round trip to get it.

Donkey Kong 3 / Donkey Kong 3 Arcade is now a collectible

I don't know if some of you remember, but a few years back I went on this forum, and I went on the CAG forum.  I tried my best to give away my Donkey Kong 3 machine for free.  Yeah, it had a couple of problems, but no wanted it for free.  No one wanted to pick it up for free.  I was the World Record holder as well.  Now flash forward to present day, and I see people going gagga over getting a Donkey Kong 3 Arcade machine.  Some people actually calling it their holy grail.  My thought of course was:

Where on earth were you guys when I wanted to give my machine away for free?
By the way I was able to finally give away my machine, but it was only because the guy who took it from me was going to turn it into a Donkey Kong machine.  I had actually written my high score on the machine with my autograph.  The guy when taking away the machine actually commented, what's that writing on the side?  I said, "It's nothing, just me writing down a high score of mine."

Yeah, this was one of my top two worst Donkey Kong 3 memories.

5. Space Taxi and Jumpman TG World Records on the C64


Especially the Jumpman.  I lost a good year of my youth pounding that one.  Great achievement.

Another slight improvement.  I wont' be posting every minor improvement moving forward, but this is all part of the effort to get my stream working for the DKOO.  Jeremy - please confirm everything looks good with the stream when you are reviewing the score submissions, if you would be so kind.  Much appreciated!

I do it for the love of the game. Something I never really thought of are my other accomplishments but I do submit to TG so I guess that is something. I know there are a lot better players here than me but I guess some on the list for me.

1. My 1st place WR score in Yolmpics for Rally-X Arrangement :D - https://www.twitch.tv/videos/44720739
2. World Record on Fix it Felix Jr (AFAIK 297,000).
3. 10M Gyruss Score. Not quite a marathon but I played from open to close and got kicked out of the convenience store  Kreygasm
4. Crazy Kong Killscreen.
5. Space Taxi and Jumpman TG World Records on the C64
6. Crap Tournament 6 Victory - Just edging out Zerst cuz he didnt have a lot of time to play with a last second Frisky Tom 1st place score whew!
7. Mame Event 1st Place
8. 1M DK Hard Score
9. Getting to know a lot of awesome folks traveling to BOTA and KOs!

I personally did a 1m game (1,032m exactly I think) on Pac-Man at a perfect 3,333,360 pace using perfect patterns found on Youtube. I've achieved that within 3 weeks of playing exactly. My last game ever was that 1m game, and while playing this last attempt, I was so bored that I made a promise to myself that even if I don't get 3,333,360 on that game that I should stop because this game is too fking boring  <Allen>

Joke aside, getting a perfect Pac-Man score is by far easier than just getting a simple kill screen than Donkey Kong. If I a reason to play as much Pac-Man like I had played playing Donkey Kong, I would have gotten 11364 perfect games. No offense to Pac-Man players, but once you learn the patterns and the timing, this sh*t's easy lol.

All you need to know is that I've gotten a perfect Pac-Man.  My DK PB is just over 500k.  Pac-man isn't even hard.  Broken patters due to boredom are easily rectified.  One 2-second lapse on a barrel board - DEAD.

****THESE ARE SOLD****


I've got a couple I currently have listed on KLOV.  PM me if interested.  Below is what I posted at KLOV.  Prices assume shipment with continental US.  Paypal F&F or add 4%.

The minor corrosion is extremely superficial.  These sticks are solid and every bit as good as the ones I have in my cabs and play on regularly.

Nintendo TKGU-23-50 joysticks.  $45 each shipped or $80 for both shipped.

Ninty Joystick A.  Could use a good servicing and some cosmetic scrubbing.  All there, all original, all working.




Ninty Joystick B.  Serviced by me about a year ago.  Completely disassembled, cleaned and the pillow ball lubed.  Missing the clear plastic shaft tubing thingy, otherwise all there and all original, all working.




Ninty Joystick Mounting Hardware.  I donít claim it to be original, but it works to secure either of the above joysticks to a standard Ninty CP.  The first person to ask for it that is buying one of the joysticks gets it.
