    After looking at the global rules outlined here, it appears that continues may be disallowed in the global rules:

    Name:  no_continues.jpg
Views: 171
Size:  176.5 KB

    Point 5 states "no continues are allowed as a general rule".

    Without any evidence about how Triforce did his score, I will probably abstain from voting. If there was clear evidence that Triforce started with a non-continued game, that would be different. Just want to be fair to all parties involved.

    Triforce already said that he restarted a new game after dying with some "trick" to make the game keep the bonuses in-tact as well as reptile or did I mis-read what he posted? That is ok but starting a basically new game from the beginning is not when he has 0 points? Interesting....

    Sucks that there's no way to verify exactly how the 24,821,500 was done except for a few cryptic comments.

    I'm voting yes for this because it's cool as hell and if the so called "secret" is revealed it'll have to be revealed via adjudication.

    Yeah its difficult for me to understand why in general some folks simply will not divulge info for stuff that is 20-30+ years old. I've never had a problem one ever showing my gameplay to anyone who actually wanted to see it haha :D Anyway I understand the overall purpose of the "continue" rule but when scores are reset to 0 that rule makes little sense. Look at some of the disputes now and the use of a continue should be frowned upon because that enables the score to keep on going which is completely different here. I would not have a single issue with anyone doing this because frankly im quite certain anyone who can get 25 million could do it without "continuing" as well. This game needs to have an exception to this why not?

    Yeah I agree - In some ways, it is subjective. In this case, does the "no continues allowed" mean once the gameplay has started?

    Leaning closer to voting YES on this now, because Triforce did say that the "Test Your Might" point values started higher that fresh run values for his run, as well.

    Worst case, we vote it in and Triforce raises a dispute showing how to do it without a continue. This gets overturned, and we get to see Patrick score chase it using the secret trick.

    Not seeing a downside here besides risking a few credibility points.

    Does anybody know which referee verified the current record by TriForce Johnson?
