Getting in before Terence with the correct ROMs for different versions of MAME:

0.106-0.122: ckong - "Crazy Kong (set 1)"
0.123-0.138: ckong - "Crazy Kong Part II (set 1)"
0.139- : ckongpt2 - "Crazy Kong Part II (set 1)"

Looking forward to this, been meaning to give it another shot and move up the TG rankings ahead of Mameshane.

Would love an original board for this if anyone has one laying around doing nothing and you want to sell it to me at a fair price :)

I was playing the rom version ckong so I tried ckongpt2 - "Crazy Kong Part II (set 1)" which looks to be correct.

2nd one is the correct one. See John73's post I quoted above. It depends on which version of MAME you're using. Before .139, ckong was Crazy Kong part 2. I submitted an undumped Crazy Kong romset (that wasn't part 2) around that time and starting with .139 they decided to make that one the parent romset for some reason, and split off Crazy Kong Part 2 as a new parent set ckongpt2 for part 2 and all its clones. If you play the current ckong romset, it's much easier than part 2, as you don't have the holes in the barrel level beams, the level 2+ conveyor belts aren't fast and you can run behind Kong on the rivet level. The non part 2 sets (other than Orca) all have really ugly colors too :D

Two identical wild barrel deaths on 4-1 I think, a really stupid walk into a spring death and final death on 20-1 when I got nervous with a barrel/wild barrel combination going to top girder.

If I wasn't on 600k pace, I must have been pretty damn close. Still plenty of time to hit 600k :)

Haven't played this one in ages. I wasn't going to submit this score because I was just shy of 14th place but I decided what the heck. Used to score regularly 350k to 400k bitd. It won't take long to get my score up there again. Ironically enough, I haven't gotten a kill-screen yet. Don't see why I wouldn't be able to get one being that the 3rd elevator stages are much easier than the original DK which happens to be my achilles heel.

Btw, is the ks on 22 like that of DK? That should be about 88 stages if I'm correct.

85th Stage is KS. 21 levels of 4 boards + the KS on 22-1.

Actually there are also 4 distinct elevators in this version also - level 3 is generally considered the hardest, but is still a piece of piss. The 4th elevators continue right through until level 21, and short of major brain farts, you should never die on these.

whoooooo....22-1 kill screen :D I've done it on a real pcb/cab twice, but hadn't in MAME yet. Attached INP is wolfmame 106. Had a couple YOLO moments on level 8 and 20 rivets. Last life from Level 9 to the end.

And the name CRAZYKONGFAN just fits in the high score entry ... :024:

I wonder how many gamers have achieved the kill screen on Crazy Kong in both MAME and the FALCON arcade pcb? Perhaps you are the first?

I have a crappy strategy that gets me killed on the rivets stages almost ever time. Died twice on the same stage. 168k on my 1st man. Go figure.

I've just spent the last half hour trying to sprint through, knowing that since I'll need over an hour to beat my last score, I'm running out of time before 7pm! And all that I'm doing is playing a bunch of rubbish.
So I'm just going to chill out, and play properly now, even if it misses the deadline.

Well played everyone, some great scores, and at least I can say I beat my old PB three times during this MGL! Now for that KS...

Final Results ...

Well what great results … so many gamers learned to play Crazy Kong really well, that they seem to enjoy this game and their progress.
From 11th to 20th place and scoring from 445K down to 232K, 10 gamers gave it to Kong in terencew, creech, Fliplismc, bigredbird, Foot, Pudwald, D. B. Cooper, RMacauley, SMK and spectre.

Then another group played exceptionally well, where some even achieved a kill screen, from 599K to 528K, in kane, CrazyKongFan, Ivanstorm1973, Duaber, QAOP Spaceman, Ozfodder, redelf, DaLar and John73. That's from 2nd place to 10th place. And it’s worth repeating again, all these gamers scored over 500K. Absolutely fantastic.

Congratulations to Andrew Barrow for winning Game 3, scoring a mighty 629,400 points for a World Number 2 score. Now that’s very impressive. Well played Andrew!

I’m really happy to have come in third here even if it’s from the bottom!
