Ditto +2, it was Crazy Kong machines I also played, which has the more logical progression of levels. Were the US set machines ever even in Australia ? Perhaps it was a septic who nominated the US set ? :laugh:

My 3rd highest score ever, off to a good start. I had another good game going, was at 120k when the power went off from the storms here, BAH!

Also, fringert, you're using the wrong set, the US Set 1 only has 3 letter initial highscore entries, thats probably the japan set. The difficulty varies alot between sets for this game, so everyone make sure.

I only did the US Set 1, as it's the official King of Kong set, and Donkey Kong was nominated not Crazy Kong ( unless we do the Jap set I think which does the levels in order ), maybe when people nominate they can say the rom set to stop hysteria :p
I wouldn't mind doing the Crazy Kong but I don't think anyone nominated it, I love Crazy Kong
Seems again we had a lot of nominations from players who are not even participating, next time only nominated games from players who played at least 5 games in the last MGL will be included in the next MGL.
Will save this fury of game nominations from the outsiders :p

Then the outsiders can work there way in to nominate there games :p

Just a thought, anyone want to add or disagree feel free:)

And remember its all about fun

Yeah Crazy was indeed nominated :p

I'm really enjoying playing the US set for a change though, it's way more of a challenge from the word go, and the weirdo level order is pretty interesting though sometimes I still have no idea what's coming next.. which is a good thing!

Much harder to get a decent score though and it's taken me quite a few goes to get this far, which isn't that far at all :redface

Massive high score on this one wingtip, oh my :cool:

EDIT: Score update, starting to Grok the US set a little more.

Donkey Kong, i'll attempt to get out of the bottom three this week. Don't like my chances though. I watch King of Kong for some inspiration last night, didnt help much :lol

I hit the Rivets level last night (yes second screen) I don't believe I've ever actually played that level before! I've now mamed my cab and set my MCAs to 4way, which as we can probably appreciate, is a much better way to play in this comp.

I've managed to improve from 800 to 18,000+ in 4 games so not all bad, Extremely fun game when the 8way isn't cutting out on you every other second.

Like everyone has said this is way harder than Crazy Kong, but I do prefer the US set, it feels real :)

I'm sure I have played the US set in the arcades in OZ in the day.

This is not my highest ever, I think I have got over 120k on US DK in the past.

Some great scores here :)

The trick to the bouncing girders is..................

On level 4 they come in groups of three or four then a slightly larger gap. They also drop in a different area of the screen. Watch and count.........then move.......but it's still difficult, I died there this time, but have made it in the past.

wingtipvortex
27th August 2009, 10:27 PM
Good advice Rat, i think ive found a sweet spot. When a spring hits a few mm to the right of the right ladder, thats when i go.
As you said though, it is hard, and its seems to be random sometimes(if youv'e lost a life or not).

Is anyone point pressing? or just trying to get through the level?

FFS you are now pulling off 350,000+ scores and you have never played it before this week, look OK the Galaga Hiscore I can deal with but consecutive weeks with massive Highscores on games you have never played before, come on, think you are ****ing up the MGL for everyone else.
Not calling cheat (close)_ but noone ever in the MGL has been that good on consecutive games, unless you are the RAINMAN of video games I feel we need some proof of your scores of another member here to validate it with sight.

Sorry man I just don't buy it, prove me otherwise

To be fair to DK, i have been suspicious of this score and have had discussions with him about it. I have mentioned to DK that this score may not be plausible through conventional methods.

If you have indeed scored this through proper means Fringert, i will apologise now. But i have reason to belive this is not the case.

To obtain a score of 369,500 at level 10 would mean you are playing at the level of Weibie and Mitchel, hence, on every level that is possible you would be point pressing where applicable...... I personaly dont think that this can be achived after 1 day of Donkey Kongs(us set1) learning curve( seeing you stated you have never played this version before)

Steve and Billy have been playing for 20 years.

The only other solution i came up with was that you may have unlimited lives set for a period.

I set my rom set to "unlimited lives" to do a comparison to your score, to see how close it would be with your score and mine in the end. I lost 22 lives to reach level 10!
Your score---369,500
Mine---368,500

I have repeated this test 3 times and come within 5000 points of your score, this to me eliminates random factors.

I really hope i have made a major miscalculation with this, but, i dont belive i have. As DK says, maybe another form of varification is in order........

And because of this the MGL will be on hold from now till this is clarified.
The current game will stand till the current dilemma is sorted so keep playing until we can verify this situation. This will make it fair for everyone and future games ;)

29th August 2009, 02:13 AM
And as I have no proof of these scores they will stand, sorry for being paranoid fringirt, you know in your heart and soul that you did it properly :)

Regrding "YouTube - How To Beat The Third Elevator Stage On Donkey Kong".
Unfortunatley this vid leaves out one important factor, yes you do "go" when the spring lands on the rivet, but thats not all, if the following spring lands on the rivet aswell you will get hit.
You have to have one land on the rivet and the following one left of the rivet in order to make it. I also disagree with the previous statement that the springs come in groups of 3 or 4, I reckon they're constant on US Set 1.

What I do is wait for one to land on the rivet, then start running as soon that spring is over my head, when I get to the base of the ladder, I flick my eyes back to see where the next spring is landing, if it is on the rivet I run back to the starting point and repeat, if it is left of the rivet I climb up the ladder to victory! Keep in mind this all happens in less than a second.

Wingtip I completely agree with this analysis of the score.

Never played before and 350k+ simply is not possible. You cant do this on a game like DK. Fringert has not addressed the points anyone has raised about the score or people's concerns, except to post youtube videos. wtf ?

Even studying many howto's, startegy guides, videos, could not possibly help you to such a score in such a short time, having never played the game, really you have to have played hundreds and hundreds perhaps thousands of games of donkey kong to be getting to that level.

Not convinced. But happy to be proved wrong Fringert. As mentioned, don't think anyone bar a Twin Galaxies LEGEND could score 1.2 million on Galaga and follow it up with 369k on DK us set.

Verification is easy, mame can record the full game play, this file can then be zipped and emailed to a moderator. The game can then be scrutinised for cheating, and watch the initials put in after.

This is the way games are verified at MARP, and anyone can download and view the game play.

mamejay
29th August 2009, 10:56 AM
Definitely something wrong here. I watched a 1million+ game on DK last night from the MARP site. It is true that some insane points pressing would need to be done to get to 360+ thousand by level 10 and to have just started playing DK I find it hard to believe. Its possible but not probable

If anyone wants to see an insane DK game check this
http://replay.marpirc.net/r/dkong
Just a tip. Hit the F10 key to play it fast if you wanna see the kill screen.
Should be a rule that the woldmame is use and the game recorded and submitted. I agree with RAT. I have submitted a score to TG before like this. No question of the games authenticity.

Fringert, if you would like an ini file, id be happy to provide one. My question is this, for someone who claimed to have never played this rom set before, and it is completely different from the Japan set and crazy kong, to achive such high scores so instantly?

In the same instant, you claim to have looked up "some stratigies" years ago. Stratigies to what? The game you have never played before? Unless you have a photographic memory( and you may do) this is not a game you can learn in one night. Progressing past level 4 elevators is not the issue here, i know what needs to happen. As i said, your score is equal to a point pressing game at the "top" level, or, multiple lives.

Regarding having a photographic memory, it would make little difference in this game, it is random in many different ways. As i said before, i really hope im wrong in saying this to you, as you seem to be a productive AA member. But it really just doesn't add up.
I hope we can resolve this Fringert.

The spirit of..... there is no proper verification in place for this comp, there never has been apart from a screenshot. These rules were clear enough at the beginning of the comp; everyone asking for additional verification because fingert wiped his ass with our scores in an impossible amount of time will kill ..... the MGL

The options of using Wolfmame and proper score verification was discussed well before the first MGL. We've had 8 successful seasons since without (afaik) anyone having to defend their scores because it may seem suss. Seems to me, he's fulfilled all requirements as stated at the beginning of the season to have the score verified and accepted. There is no ruling on requiring additional verification.

It seems as stated in private discussion the text along with the score was tongue in cheek.

That's a bit dramatic. Yes it's all about FUN, but it's also a competition, and the nature of a competition is, it's competitive. It's probably a little bit more about just fun alone, for those that are less competitive in the score arena, I would speculate. And anyway, what's wrong with a bit of controversy once in a while to spice things up?

Seems to me that Fringert has come though - put forward the reason that all of this came about was the bullshit he threw around at the start - under the guise of 'theatrics' or whatever you want to call it, Fringert. It's a weird thing to do, but Take that BS how you will, I suppose.

It's great that a game as old and classic as this can inspire such stirring up of hornets nests still. Go Mario! :D

The MGL is built on trust, so I assume that all scores are submitted are real and leave it at that.

Stayed there the whole remaining bonus on one of the lives trying to figure out the pattern - you know close, far far, close, when to run, etc etc but I just can't see it.

Took most of the week to hone the skills again.

Bloody elevators got me good.
The inability to fall a short distance keeps screwing me over.

Fingers and eyes hurt so no more donkey kong....

well i can't do any better, noticed in elevator can just jump the higher ladder L03 , i think fingert will take it ! I was sooo close

also noticed i cannot reproduce the points leech next to kong on 4 - maybe that's a different rom set.

this was so much fun, will have to makeup a t-shift

It works in MAME, you just have to get your positioning and jump timing perfect which is quite hard.

I will say this game of Donkey Kong had all the heat ;) Nothing like a bit of king of kong to hit the nerves :laugh:
The passion is alive :p
Anyway like I have said before if I have left a score out out, or miscalculated let me know.

Good to see the heart felt warmth on these classics ;)

Ok I know I'm a bit late here but I've been getting back into arcade gaming the past couple of weeks after spending most of my spare time on my pinnies. This is a really cool game that surprisingly enough I have never really played much of. I can only remember seeing this game on location once before - I think it was just a couple of years before my time.

I've watched that King of Kong vid (really cool :) ) and want to give this game some time. My hs so far is only 49k or so on level 3 and I want to know how you can manipulate the barrels to fall down ladders. In the movie they say you can control the barrels to fall or something like that - it looks like you face the ladder and it will drop down it?? The spring stage is my favourite!
I'll be back when I crack 369k :D

As far as cheating in an MGL goes....I personally can't possibly imagine how or why someone would do it - how could anyone get any enjoyment or satisfaction if they were cheating?? With that in mind and the great bunch of blokes that play the MGL we've never had any issues during times that I've been around.

There was once on a classic shoot em up that someone posted a dodgy score but that was a while back now :rolleyes I know it happened :o

I'm thinking we should be getting together and try hitting some Twin Galaxies scores to see if us guys can get some world records. We spend this time competing against each other when maybe we could be bringing home some world records to AA.

If someone could help me out with those barrels it would be appreciated :D

Another thread (http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=26545)recently posted a DK guide.

You can always play pins when it's not MGL :p

We must be due for a real platformer soon!
