@Games_Should_Be_Fun That one was an attempted import drop from Los Higos. The fundamental laws of physics in Erangel and everywhere else differ so wildly it was naturally unstable and destroyed itself. Antimatter meeting regular matter and annihilating itself, in essence.

Disgraced Donkey Kong champ Billy Mitchell releases statement

vert1go

5 days ago

@JohnMcL7 Indeed, which is why I only noted that he was never (as seems commonly believed including by Steve) an official ref. In fact within the dispute thread former TG Chief Referee Robert Mruczek had been talking about occasions of Billy doing so - the infamous "gummy substance" part of King of Kong was in fact something Billy had put forward to Robert as being a thing claiming it could have cooled/slowed down the game processor (Robert also completely regrets having been taken in by that lie at the time).

@whatfruitlivesagain Now now, he did have his own independent arcade expert Carlos use the very same equipment Billy himself claimed to set the record on and try to disprove the allegations.
...I mean it sort of backfires when the hired expert using what you supposedly used came to the same conclusions TG did, with the hardware then showing you didn't actually use it to set a record on, but hey. He tried! ;)

@ShiftyGeezer The problem with that is that going by what Wes Copeland, Lakeman and other 1m+ players have seen, along with other notable TG Kong `experts`, watching all the known footage of Billy's play demonstrates that he does not know the tricks or have the skillset to pull off that kind of score. With DK there are several levels of skill that are almost like learning to play all over again - how you play to get a 1m score is vastly different to an 800-900k, a 1.2 is another different level of play, etc. Wes or someone laid this out in the last few pages of the Dispute thread. He may be a very decent gamer, but the fact that his DK Jr record also showed the same signs of MAME usage... Well, without a lot of learning it doesn't seem he currently has the skills needed to get there. Even if he does, he still cheated and gave up his chances to be recognised by doing so.

More distracting blather from the MItchell camp. Nobody is debating the scores on this occasion from "35 years ago". It's a few scores about a decade old, which clearly show the usage of non-arcade hardware or an emulator.
Release all the statements and documents you like. Those scores which ARE the ones responsible for your erasure for cheating give verifiable, provable, reproducible evidence of what appears to be MAME, fairly definitively, and 100% - not the odd one or two transitions but ALL of them on two 2+ hour tapes - back that up. Add in facts like no audio (convenient when MAME at the time had trouble with the sound in DK) and that these kind of transitions only existed in specific versions of MAME that were available at the time the scores were done...)

These scores were not done on original arcade hardware as per the rules. Thus, the banhammering. That's the fact of the matter and no amount of casual distraction is going to work.

(Although as far as I'm aware I think Steve is wrong and Billy was never actually an official referee. Minor note. Twin Galaxies has a whole long list of inaccuracies and corrections to King of Kong and its... liberal attitude to facts, and I believe that was among them.)

I feel it should also be pointed out for credibility that this TG is *not* the TG of King of Kong era, nor the period of the administration that followed, but another incarnation run by Jace Hall (formerly CEO/founder of Monolith - yes the ones responsible for F.E.A.R. and others). Throughout this dispute and the other recent Todd Rogers one, he's demonstrated - if a little slow seeming at times - a very credible and factual basis for the TG of today. All he cares about is the accuracy of the information in the database - not who knows who, who is the most popular, where the money comes from (all the old ties with Billy and co are long gone) but turning TG back into a reputable and respectable business.

Outright erasing and banning two of the most well known classic gamers - the latest of whom is notoriously litigious - should speak volumes to that fact. The shady days of TG are gone.

@bobbylank The volume/sound have been disproven as a thing - in fact Billy's tapes didn't have sound as it would've meant another tap on the PCB.

(EDIT: of course there was no actual PCB to tap. Along with which, very coincindetally, MAME had notable trouble reproducing the sound on DK at the time which would've been an easy giveaway too!)


But there is also the fact there is some statistically anomalous barrel smash points (an extraordinarily large amount of 800 pt barrels) and a few rather suspect points in the tape that look like splices from save states where some transition screens skip very quickly or points flicker etc. It's all buried away in 300+ pages,but TG weren't interested in the `how`, just the fact that it was non arcade is enough.

But yes there's a pile more oddities they didn't even need to get into to determine it was MAME/ "non arcade". The thread on TG is /extensive/ to say the least. There''s a three+ hour video of Jace from TG showing off the videotape and discussing it from a week or so ago with the community. It's all public, verifiable, and reproducable.

Cheaty Mamechell probably isn't having the best day ever.

@Delthenar Technically (although I agree with your reading and see where it goes) the high scores weren't possible because the tapes were't arcade play but MAME.
It's convoluted but I think it can be read as these scores show non-arcade transition frames which means "could not have been possible" on a legitimate PCB.
(But I still think it should be rephrased in the article).

I think it may be a good idea to force someone to spend ten minutes or so reading with this amount of whitespace on a bright screen. MY EYES, THE GOGGLES DO NOTHING.
So much white.
So, so much white.
Look at these acres of white. These could be full of - or partly taken up by - content. Compressing the information into less screen mileage. Much less scrolling to get the same info.
