      No worries. I'll post a score at about 7:05pm so that I am the leader, if only for a couple of minutes

        Good ploy. I don't think I will be far behind!

          I watched a 1million+ point marp recording to learn a few tips, I learned that the dude who was playing DK is an awesome player, and I am fairly shit at it
          Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

              I wanted a taste of the leader's position as well, so I just knocked you off John.
              I knew I had to get it done quick before the good players step in and are untouchable.

              Stuns me people can even reach the 100k mark on this game!

                  You think you are better than me? I'll challenge you to a game of Donkey Kong on the old Dual Screen Game & Watch and kick your arse from here 'till Sunday

                  I thought I had a winning score there

                  I'm gonna have to Google "marp" so I can see how to play this game - turned up squat on YouTube.

                    Don't have to 'think' as it's now proven!

                    Just so happens I have been playing my DK G&W heaps since getting a few recently. Bring it on!

                    Technically you did... Now I have it. Well, for a few minutes anyway.

                    One thing is for sure though, it won't be long before we're both near the bottom of the pile. At least now we've both had a walk on the podium - kind of!

                      I could be wrong, but I think I remember being able to clock the G&W Donkey Kong by just standing on the bottom platform and jumping Barrels I know I was able to clock it without losing a life, sadly the arcade version isn't nearly as easy

                      I just downloaded the MARP Zip file for this. I've look at some info, but it won't playback for me? Any hints on how to do it?

                      I've unzipped the files straight into my Mame directory. I renamed them (as the file names were ridiculous) to dkong.INP and dkong.WLF

                      I ran MAME -playback dkong dkong

                      but all I get is a massive error message

                            If I get time later on tonight I am gunna switch the gate on the stick to 4-way and try to get to 50k - small steps for a DK novice.

                            At least I am still in front of John.

                              I find with some games that a bit of alcohol helps to make you play better. Unfortunately I'm passed the point of alcohol making me play better tonight

                              I'll give another go tomorrow - but I can't see me beating your score by the end of the competition

                              Next competition should be single person playing 2-Player Mario Bros - I'm pretty good at that

                                Switched the stick to 4-way last night, and watched a few vids for tips - doubled my score from yesterday, but have a long, long way to go...

                                Really need tips for the conveyor stage now though. This is where I am losing my lives every time (providing I make it to it that is). Any tips?
