Neat find

Haha, was digging through my laptop for a good pic for my trading card (...not going well on the pic, haha!) and stumbled across this:



I TOLD you Guys I used to be good at that stupid monkey game, lol!

No vid, no did(or in this case, .inp!), not claiming this as a score, but was a neat memory jar.


Probably told this before, possibly in detail but the pic really helps me back up my story!

Had piddled with MAME for a few years, somehow stumbled across the X-Arcade and decided to take on Donkey Kong, for no reason except that my Dad had been good at it when I was a kid.

I really did get up to averaging about 300k a game, and I know I have a pic on an old PC in the shed somewhere with a 450k(ish) score.

Anyway, finding this pic reminded me, I spent a couple of weeks chasing 10k on the first board, for no other reason than to challenge myself, I had no idea there was active competition.

Tho it took me a few more years to realize there was actually a working Twin Galaxies and begin participating, that's where I stumbled across King of Kong and TG, I had gotten as "good" as I claim, and began researching the game at that point(I swear, 450k, and I swear, "on my own"-I think 10k on L1 proves the possibility, at least).


Lol, I saw how good people really were, and how fierce the competition was, and I just gave up on it altogether.

:)


Haven't done a "glory" post in a while, was just a fun find.


*Edit*

Oh yeah, even-for as much learning as I have done here, DK is the origin of the aftermarket dedicated 4-way stick, I just HAD to have them to play "right", in my head-no way I could have hit my patterns so crisply w/o the 4-way on Burgertime, so thank goodness for that!

    anyone that can score 100k or more is champion in my book. Takes practice to do it on command. If i needed a picture, I would probably just use one of my pet rabbit or my kids dressed up as anything....haha....

    Man, my eyes are getting bad or something-that's what I thought at first, then after reading Kelly's post I "looked closer", thought I saw 100k, lol-I guess this was 10k on L-1.

    100k w/o dying every time WAS a goal tho, once I got "pretty good".

    Kangaroo is a monkey game with ladders. Donkey Kong is an ape


    Apes aren’t monkeys and they get offended if you claim they are

    Lolol!


    Ah, one of the reasons I stopped playing it was seeing how frustrating it can be, you can be completely protecting yourself and something go wrong, and my catchphrase(to myself, in my mind)when, for instance, he would drop a barrel straight down when I was on the fifth level of the girders directly beneath him, was "that effing Monkey!!!"


    Too lazy to find/link, but saw a thing recently about an Ape in Japan, I think, that people flock to visit because the dude is just sexy, poses, flirts with his eyes, very human characteristics, was pretty interesting.

    He has white in his eyes, which is unusual for a primate?



    This wasn't the vid I saw, but unlazied and found at least this.

    :)

    Shabani!
