    Impossible Scores on the Scoreboard

    Hello, this thread was started to discuss, question, and challenge any score on the scoreboard that you believe to be incorrect. This thread is for scores you believe to be impossible or incorrect for any reason not related to scoreboard malfunction. For scoreboard malfunction, see below.

    This thread is not to discuss website scoreboard error. See the following page if you want to report a malfunction on the scoreboard itself:
    http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...reboard-errors

    Please state accurately and clearly each individual score that you feel is invalid, and needs to be reviewed. Please provide all appropriate, and detailed evidence for why you believe a score on the scoreboard is questionable. For each score, please provide a link to that specific list on the scoreboard.

    *NOTE* This is not an official score challenge thread, and I am not evaluating these challenge claims. My goal is to compile a list of scores that the community deems to be impossible for any number of reasons.

    The Donkey Kong Country "Minimalist" run of all levels, no saves with an in game time of 00:28. A perfect Tool Assisted Speedrun can't even match the time under those rules.

    Here is the current All Stages World Record for the game which matches the time of 00:28 but with many glitches:

    I remember seeing this being posted before so may as well add it here:

    The top score of 1,099,900 is impossible as the game caps out at 999,900

    Proof here:
    http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...t=wild+western

    I believe the score was pulled from the database at some point but it has made it's way back in somehow...

    GH World Tour, PS2, PAL - Sting - "Demolition Man (Live)" - Bass - Easy - 1 Player [Points]]: http://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=84783
    84765 is impossible - original footage in the thread at http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...765-Andrew-Mee which shows 64,765.

    Are you on my radar?
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    Driver, PS1, PAL - Undercover - The Briefcase Part 1: http://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=64620
    For some reason the referee added a minute to the time: the actual achievement was 42.97 but the time entered became 1:42.97. That's just not possible.

    Do you have this video by any chance? :)

    Also, updated the master list. I'm just not sure where to keep it... but anyway, I'm compiling these for somewhat easy viewing at a later time. I plan to categorize these under "obvious scoreboard typo," "questionable score," or "impossible." Whichever is most relevant.

    I would deem a score on "Karate Champ 2" impossible, due to the fact that Karate Champ 2 doesn't exist.

    The only sequel to Karate Champ that I'm aware of exists in the form of a hardware upgrade called "Karate Champ - Player Vs Player."

    http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/135120-Strikers-1945-%28Arcade-WR%29-not-valid

    Most of the arcade Strikers 1945 scores are impossible. The last 2 digits of the score should always be 00, unless the player continued. Every time a player continues with another credit, 1 point is added to the score.

    Multiple TG staff posted in that topic acknowledging the problem, but as usual, nothing was done about it.

    Is that score reasonable for 'Karate Champ - Player Vs Player?' And the person who wrote this score down did not know the name of said game?
