    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong Jr. score has been played on MAME according to my analysis here:

    Supposedly, Billy achieved both the Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. world records in one day. That would mean 6+ hours of gameplay with good luck.

    In reviewing footage of Billy Mitchell's Big Bang/IVGHOF announcement where Billy played a video of his DK Junior world record, it appears that there may be another transition element bears the hallmarks of a MAME "signature".

    As part of the rendering sequence of the vines stage, the left-most vine is one of the first elements rendered under MAME - in the arcade game, it' s not.

    MAME version testing may narrow down the one in question here, although if we go by what we believe in the DK dispute review, the likely version is between MAME 0.116 to 0.121

    MAME DK Junior game recorded 2012.

    Compare to a vine transition during the IVGHOF announcement, the same one captured from two different angles
