    I dusted off my DK cab, oiled up the joystick nice and slick and had a practice game and got 31k Probably going to be mostly shits and not many giggles for me until I de-rust...

    You can add my PB of 660k to the list, I'll likely be in neagtive improvement territory though...

    Yeah, better than the 8,500 I managed in my only game. Somehow I think giving 100k to improve from for noobs and such is a little hopeful !

    My first ever Kong Off, I scored over 100k and I was a complete and utter noob at DK - never ever made the pie screen BITD let alone getting through the 3rd elevators. The point of the 100,000 starting position is that it encourages new players to reach a goal and still gives the medium players a bit of a chance at winning the prize. If it was set at say 50,000 then I'm sure someone new could crack 100,000 for a 100% improvement. Meaning me for example would need to crack 500,000+ to win and players like Kane & Barra would be zero chance at the price due to their existing high scores - not that it would worry either them I don't think, Barra is a snowballs chance in hell at winning the most improved unless he gives Robbie Lakeman's HS a bit of nudge

    My suggestion if you can, is watch either Barra or Mameshane play live, you will learn lots by just looking. And also re-read all of the tips from previous KO's.

    He shoots, he scores! and takes the early lead

    Might try a quick game tonight, but nothing serious. Left for work at just after 5:30am and got home at 7:00pm - I'm well and truly buggered

    @John73 - you haven't been to DKF in a while, have you?
    Wes Copeland now holds the arcade record @ 1,190,000. Dean still on top of the combined list with 1,206,800

    Even if I equaled Dean's HS, that is only an ~18% increase

    My stream - http://www.twitch.tv/barranz - Pop in and say hello!

    I'm late to this thread, but in on the DK. It's a game I always intend on improving on but never stay all that long with. I tend to get frustrated at the lack of personal improvement on the title. Most improved is a great contest idea.

    I'll toss in $10 US via paypal to the prize pool too (however John wants to allocate: via prize money, combine it with his $10, some other prize combination or direct donation to AA. John: PM your paypal address here or at TG and I'll forward).

    As for PB, I really am not sure what mine is. I suspect it's 303K on a cabinet, but whatever the IGB contest entry was may be higher (360ish maybe??), whenever that contest was. I'll have to look around before settling on 303K. I have not submitted on DK to TG or MARP.

    I knew it was Robbie or Wes - too old, too tired and too lazy to look it up

    EDIT: I should apologise to Wes I guess, pretty bad of me to not acknowledge the true champion

    The best thing to do is tell Barra that he can't do it - then you know he will

    Thanks mate. Let me know when you work out your PB.

    $10US is like gold to us with our crappy dollar - so I'll add you to the list in the most improved section - or do you want it to go to the overall winner? Doesn't worry me either way. Wait until the comp is over and I'll PM you with the details of how to Paypal to AA directly.

    Any manner that supports AA works. I'd honestly prefer to leave it to you to distribute in any manner preferred.

    I forgot to inquire: are we point pressing (jumping at Kong's feet, re-jumping barrels) or running boards? Either way is fine with me, I just want to be sure that I'm compliant in approach with others.

    Dusting off my mame controller and twitch account now (twitch account is magrinder if anyone wants to learn questionable techniques and likely decrease their scores!)...
