Donkey Kong Jr. High Score List General Discussion
« on: June 27, 2013, 03:25:45 AM »
This is the general discussion thread for the Donkey Kong Jr. High Score List. Feel free to discuss anything concerning the list. IF you prefer you can always create a new topic. If it is relevant and needs to stay separate from the general discussion thread then that is great, otherwise it can probably just be merged to this general discussion thread. Please note that this thread and the posts in it contain the original discussions that used to be in the old DK Jr. HSL format.

My 1.037 game was technically not a ks game.  I died on E-4.

Looks good, Chris.

My only suggestions would be to use the links to the "newer" TG scoreboards (where most of the incorrect dates have been fixed), and to link directly to the "Points" variation (since it's the only variation that TG currently tracks):

Your score's already up there, mate. Number 7. Live scores meet the criteria as noted above. I'm not only taking TG submissions, that's just where I'm starting as it's easy to grab a large chunk of the scores that are out there. I'm taking any and all scores that meet the criteria, as originally laid out by Corey.

Ben's score was streamed so I imagine his 1.1 million game would qualify via peer review. He may even still have an archive of it. Do you still have the archive of your 1070k game anywhere?

I guess the one main problem is this Brian.  How do we know you did not use 6 men plus an extra?  I believe you did 3 men plus an extra, but no one else can know that besides yourself.  Hence the unwillingness of some to include that score on some lists.

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.

I'm using literally the exact same criteria as the DK HSL, guys.

Great score, Brian. I personally do not doubt your score of 1,073,800. But if you had done a video like that on DK and posted it to the DK HSL then unfortunately I would not accept it. According to the criteria that I established there would need to be a restart demonstrating that the game was on 3+1 settings at least and of course there would need to be evidence that there were no continues that were used unless it was shown to be an original DK Jr board which I do not believe allows continues at all. There are some scores that people have that are higher than what is on the DK HSL but they also understand why a criteria exists and unfortunately drawing lines always leaves some real scores off on the side of omissions. The main reason was given by George, no body but you have empirical evidence that the score is genuine. The criteria was created in order to ensure a higher level of certainty concerning the scores contained on it. This does not mean that your score and others are not genuine, it just means that when a score is allowed on one of these lists that there is undeniable verifiable evidence otherwise the level of certainty is just too low and that is not what we are going for.  Obviously I would prefer to include your score but opening up that part of the criteria is a slippery slope. I just hope this is understood and that you forgive us for wanting a list with a standard for a higher level of certainty for anyone and everyone who may look at it. I personally acknowledge your gaming skills and I have great respect for your abilities, and look forward to higher scores in DK Jr in the near future.

And again what proof do you have that you have never changed your settings?  See the problem there?  You have none.  None whatsoever.   It's just your word.  Yes, I believe your word, but you see the problem don't you?

Chris, this list looks very good. Seems as if you figured out everything with spreadsheet? Once that list gets very long you will want to have that spreadsheet. If you have ranking, and then someone beats say 2nd place then you have to change all the rankings. At least in excel you can just click the edge and drag down to the bottom and it auto fills the rank! :) It also gives you a back up of everything if some reason you accidentally delete your thread. Adding links and stuff like that was the most time consuming. Especially for adding Inp files and youtube unembed links, etc. Looking good. Keep up the good work.

I posted along post but my post was lost.. I'm not retyping it all.

I don'nt know why this site is so hard about that kind of thing.

Anyways I like this interest in DKJR and the scores with it.
I hope this is at the top of the page on the site like the top 10 Dk scores are .
