Since this is the 50th competition I thought I pull out a classic, that's right I'm gonna do it

DONKEY KONG!!!!!



ROMSet: dkong, (US Set 1)

DEFAULT DIP Switch Settings

Bonus Life: 7,000

Lives: 3



----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------

- One credit only.

- No continues!

- No MAME cheats!

- Last day is Tuesday September 7th (11:59:59pm Pacific Daylight Time), 2010.
 
- High score wins.

- No savestates, savestate practices, etc. during the round.

- MAME INP recordings are optional, but encouraged!

- A screenshot is required to enter a score (press F12 to save screenshot showing your final score) or take a photo of the screen if playing on a real machine.

- If you're a MARP competitor on this title, keep in mind this is just a friendly competition amongst forum members, so maybe you shouldn't enter. However, if you're a forum member and this is a game you're good at and nobody knows about it, this is your time to shine!

- Even if you don't have a competitive score or if you don't *think* that you have a competitive score, please post it anyway to keep the thread fun & to give everybody a good sense of score ranges.

Good luck!


Please if you are a Twin Galaxies competitor and such there is already a place for you, so let this be a friendly competition amoung us mortals
Please make sure your sores are from games that take place during the competition period (no posting your best score from last year, ect.)

So It's officially on like Donkey Kong! go for it!

-Bender

Nice. Just started playing this one a bit since I got my dedicated 4-way. I hit 142,000 two nights ago but I'm sure I can do better now I've figured out the springs.

With the U360 I was struggling to break 100k though I don't know if it was joystick related or just practice.

From personal experience, I know that it is always the equipment and never me  ;)

I'm in on this.  My all time best is 246,XXX but I'll start playing this week and see how it goes.  I can usually get to 150,000 just about every time I play.

I might as well get my score in there though I'm sure I'll get creamed.  Anyone for Mr. Do! or Zookeeper?  LOL.

I only ever really played on the NES, am I playing the right rom, because mine had the girder screen on the third screen when i thought it was an elevator stage. 

My hiscore btw is a humble 14,700

Delusional are you using a 4-way?  What version you using, I thought that newer versions wont work with Bezels,

Yes, a 4-way.  I'm using version .119.  But you need to compile a special version to allow the vertical bezel.  Newer versions now work.  I asked Mr. Do about it and he updated his vertical layout files for me.  Not only did he do that, he added additional ones for people with widescreen monitors!  He's awesome!

Had time for a practice run.  Not the best score but was going well until I lost 2 men on the pie factory!  I've really got to work on my technique when the flames block the top right.

162,700 a new PB.  I almost thought I was going to join the 200 club for a minute.  A couple of stupid deaths later and the angry monkey was triumphant.

First try.  2 stupid deaths.  This game was out to get me on the barrel and pie levels.  Fireballs not cooperating and random barrels all over the place!

I've been sitting around thinking an old lady with a Q-Bert machine and a video tape was going to rush in at the last minute.  Is it time yet?  I think it's Wednesday just about everywhere in the world?

Wow.  I'm actually excited.  I know I'm lucky javeryh didn't have more time but I'll take it.

I'll try something a little different for the next one.  Please don't hate me.  I'll try to write a story to justify the choice.
