Response to David Race’s Misinformation

I just wanted to clear a few things up about David Race’s recent post of misinformation. He always deletes my responses to his posts, so I decided to create my own regarding his recent claims about Billy's Perfect Pac-Man.

I cannot grasp that Race admits that Billy achieved a legitimate Perfect Pac-Man but questions the verification of it. Sort of shows where he’s at mentally these days, and clearly makes his terrible arguments out of sheer malice.

David is basically the new Dwayne, because his obsession with Billy combined with too much extra time on his hands has driven his mental state away from reality. Just like Dwayne thinking me taking a vacation to Florida was to film KOK2, David thought I made a video on Bills channel with his son narrating, but that is beyond ridiculous. I hope to clear things up with these actual facts that have been confirmed by several parties.

1. Ken Sweet was a Twin Galaxies employee. Walter Day, as the sole owner and authority of Twin Galaxies, allowed Ken Sweet and the Funspot staff to verify high-scores for Twin Galaxies, which included Billy's Perfect Score. Funspot hosted the premier arcade for gaming competition and the most credible staff in the world. Ken set-up the machine and kept it locked with his floorwalkers observing Billy's game. Even if Ken delegated observing the game to his floorwalker, Tom Fisher, who has a top-secret government clearance and worked on nuclear submarines, while he worked on other tasks away from the machine, that's irrelevant. Walter gave Ken the latitude to oversee the attempt as he saw fit. Funspot hosted the best arcade and most credible staff in the world. It would be ludicrous for anyone to question their integrity.

2. Walter Day watched the videotape afterward and confirmed the achievement (again) via videotape. In April 2018, Robert Mruzek, even with all of his animosity toward Billy, admitted that the videotape shows Billy inside Funspot exhausting all of his lives and hitting the score. I dislike and distrust Mruczek, but the anti-Billy crowd values his testiomy. Therefore, unless someone wants to question the legitimacy of Funspot and their hardware, Billy provided enough evidence to properly verify the score via videotape, even if someone tries to question the decisions and validity of the original live verification process by Ken Sweet.

3. David says that Billy was an "owner" and the "largest shareholder" of Twin Galaxies. David’s resources are false. Walter Day owned 100% of Twin Galaxies. Despite the myths started by The King of Kong and Dwayne, and perpetrated by the anti-Billy crowd, Billy neither owned Twin Galaxies, was a "shareholder," nor did he "invest" in the company.

4. Keep in mind that Billy saying that the Perfect Pac-Man score was adjudicated through live verification is irrelevant to number two. If someone against Billy wants to use (supposedly unaltered) videotapes to review his Donkey Kong scores, even though they were verified live, then they necessarily must consider it fair to confirm the Perfect Pac-Man through videotape by Walter and Robert Mruczek even if Ken Sweet and the Funspot staff verified the score live.

Fact: No matter how anyone views Ken Sweet delegating the observation part of the verification, Billy verifably achieved the First Perfect Score on Pac-Man through one of the two verification methods. Some just have a hard time seeing that as reality.

Somewhere out there, there’s an astronaut telling themselves “Neil Armstrong got there first, but I got there the fastest.”

    Unrelated but, congratulations on taking the DK record once again Robbie. 100 points over the WR is crazy. I heard you are retired from the game now and I can't say i blame you. Well done sir and congratulations once again.

    Hello, Robbie. I got a question regarding the tapes.

    Do you know if there was gameplay overlap between the tapes so as to retain continuity from beginning to end?

    Or, was the continuity demonstrated by the score? For example he got to 1.1M then parked his Pac in a safe spot, changed the tapes and continued on from 1.1M to say 2.2M then repeated the process to end up with 3 tapes?

    Or, is there no continuity at all between the tapes?

    Was the PCB shown in the video at any point?

    I won't bother asking if the voltage was confirmed to be correct :)

    So there are a few factual errors and unfounded assertions in this post. However, these topics relate to a project currently underway on this very site. In the future, it will be easier to summarize these items, when we will be able to point to our then-finished project for more elaboration. For the moment, I will ask people to stay tuned, as we continue laying out this story in high detail throughout the month of September:

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/ersatzcats/wall/9751/the-video-game-fraud-of-the-century-dot-two

    https://perfectpacman.com/

    On a related note, it is admittedly hard to take seriously the perspective of anyone who doesn't understand that Billy's original Donkey Kong tapes do show MAME game play, that they weren't edited with some magic tool that somehow draws MAME signatures on each transition without missing even a single arcade transition, and that the MAME discovery continues to have massive implications toward the lack of credibility of Billy, Walter Day, or others involved in perpetrating that particular fraud. To be frank, anyone who is suckered in that scandal is capable of being suckered in this one as well.

    Why are you talking about Donkey Kong? We’re talking about Pac Man here, and David’s misinformation in regards to the first Perfect Score, which was done by Billy Mitchell.

    Anyone who believes that the Mullet Muppet ever played a "perfect" game of Pac Man is the sad victim of misinformation.

    I know people's judgement can be flawed with what happened in the past with the DK dispute but it's important to be factually right. Billy has in fact done it multiple times on stream.

    There is a couple other times he did it on stream but I cant find those videos. Twitch has a way of just randomly deleting stuff.

    Faked it, you mean. One thing I guarantee you he'll never do: play Pac Man in front of someone who knows what it takes to play a "perfect" game. All he'll ever do is "play" for sycophants even more clueless than himself, running his cotton stuffed mouth, all the while. Because he's a fake gamer.

    Another thing I guarantee you he'll never do: show the full footage of his "original perfect game". Because he knows there are men like me, who'll tear it to shreds, given the opportunity. Only obscurity can keep his tattered reputation going. Because he's a fraud.

    Twin Galaxies is not the place to be a Mullet Muppet fanboy. Here, his credibility is garbage.

    This was a response to David’s post of misinformation in regards to the first perfect game of Pac Man, which was Billy Mitchell. You should try reading the title of the thread and the entire thread more thoroughly next time.

    Some people would rather be “Morally right” than factually right. Especially if they have idiotic WRs in dumb android games like Hill Climb racing, and have that be the only game they have WRs on.

    For example: the above person, who has idiotic "world records" set on dumb arcade games like Donkey Kong and Crazy Kong, has verifiably lied about the fact that a certain holder of Hill Climb Racing records also holds records on Tron, Elevator Action and Vigilante.

    You're right, Robbie. I was wrong. I accept responsibility for my KoK up. Note that that's what honest people do. I didn't make any excuses. I didn't throw any of my friends under the bus. I didn't threaten legal action. I didn't sue anyone. And I didn't look like a cry baby or go on a redemption tour. And because I'm not looking at legal action then I'm also not going to look like a cry baby if a judge tells me to Fk off! And I wouldn't ever expect any of my friends to do my dirty work for me (hypothetically speaking of course) because who TF would do that.

    Ey, you know what would be even more pathetic than having a "world record" on a crappy game like Donkey Kong as your claim to fame? Playing messenger boy for a washed up fake "celebrity gamer" who did exactly the same thing, a couple decades before.

    “Dumb arcade games” like donkey kong are the reason this site got popular in the first place. If it wasn’t for these arcade games, you would have nowhere to submit six hundred world records on the same Android game.

    You know what’s even more pathetic than that? Having six hundred world record scores on an Android game, and act like their voice matters because of it.
