  1. Buy Dean Saglio a DK Arcade Machine Fund

    04-20-2010, 12:06 AM
    Dean Saglio has proved himself as the top Donkey Kong player in the world on MAME with an unbelievable score of 1,136,400! This score is higher than any score ever set on an actual Donkey Kong arcade machine. I am proposing that a fund be created to help raise money so that Dean Saglio can purchase a Donkey Kong machine and set a new world record for the title.

    I do not know exactly how to do this but if Dean can somehow set up a paypal account or give an address to send a check or money order to than the Arcade Fund can begin.

    I will personally donate $25.00 USD
    If anyone has any comments or suggestions feel free to post.

    Dean, if you are reading this. Find a DK machine in your area and see how much it cost. Make a post telling how much it cost so everyone will know how much to donate and let us know what is the best way to donate money to you so you can buy the machine.

    I got 5 on it :lol:

    Maybe more depending on how the fund goes. But hey, how far is he from funspot? Not too far I bet.

    I think this post topic is starting to spread into other forums!?!

    Anyway, the knowledge i've accumulated watching Up2ng's (Dean Saglio) play DK is priceless!! And.... I'd love for him to feel the pain of flipping-the-switch/reseting an actual DK machine! HAHA! I got $100 on it and an extra on/off switch. :P

    Put me down for $30.

    We need a Ref on here really to be the person we mail/paypal the cash to so they can forward it to Dean, if it is a serious fund raising thing.

    Anyone going to be that person?

    I sent Dean a private message informing him about this thread, we now just have to wait to see what his response will be.

    By the way, I actually own an official Donkey Kong 1981 arcade game board with the wires and the joystick board with the buttons on it.

    Here is my board. I am willing to donate it free of charge provided that Dean will be able to use it to officially submit scores for Donkey Kong. I also have the joystick, header and glass screen window and can donate them as well.

    Maybe a referee can answer this one:

    If I mail Dean my Donkey Kong arcade game board and parts, what would he have to do an order to hook it up to officially submit a score to Twin Galaxies?

    Great idea Unclechicken. Any referees out there who are willing?
