    Show us a pic of the monitor working. Might just need a degauss.

    Ahh, poor Brian Kuh. Nobody can think of killscreens without remembering him, lol.

    Not much in the way of scores yet, best so far was 194k. I remember getting 180k or so on a PCB with this Falcon set a while back when I bought it, so I'm already in PB territory at least. Might have to find that PCB and get it going again.

    Although obviously similar to DK, I find CK plays a lot differently and you can't really use your DK strategy in most places, except on the rivets levels which are the same. The scoring is a lot slower as well so it seems like slow motion progress most of the time, I'll get some time to play more over the weekend.

    There actually were a lot of Falcon bootlegs around, just because the falcon version was licensed doesn't necessarily mean all falcons are originals btw.

    Yeah, the PCB I just mentioned plays exactly like the Falcon romset, but is a hack on a River Patrol PCB, and I have another bootleg here that is the same as the Falcon board layout, but green instead of blue and no Falcon logos.

    Why not try a better CK, like Alca or CK1.

    CK2 is very difficult and you might be at it a while.

    It was designed to bring in more revenue so is sooo much harder. I have the actual PCB for Ck2, In fact of all the CKs, Alca is the best, funnest etc, as you can go behind Kong on rivets level, Monkey Donkey is the same as CK1 and Alca.

    What ever you choose good luck

    There are differences with CK roms, as in gaps between girders and so on.
    Will check the difference, think I have the Alaca from memory Sean(Section z) or Dez can confirm this ( hint hint ) as they worked on my boards , Sean.

    The boardset I have is the one that was released in Australia by LAI, so most likely the Donkey ( Crazy) Kong everyone played in their yoof.

    This is the CK that most would of played in Aus Yes/No?

    The colours on the Alca are pretty good compared to some CK bootlegs IMO

    Twin Galaxies only track the Falcon set, so I was just going to stick with that one, maybe I'll do the others later

    I didn't realise the Alca set was LAI, interesting, good to know. I also have an Orca PCB here somewhere too.

    Getting some much better scores tonight, I don't think I would call the CK2 set "very difficult" after playing DK.

    Fair enough, it's your thread, go for it. Yes DK is harder for sure
