    Voting no, and not because I don't think the score is legit - but because he has purposely muted sounds for some other purpose to prove some point.

    Stop trying to bring the community down for you or Billy's agenda. Enjoy classic gaming for what it is and grow the f%*k up.

    This submission is a joke.

    If you're desperate to be 'number one', but lack the ability to be anything more than second best, and can't take the humiliation of being demoted down your most beloved scoreboard, pulling this type of stunt might be a way out of the competition you can't stand to lose.

    Perhaps I'm wrong to say that, since it qualifies as speculation about why an experienced submitter would put up this garbage. But, I don't think anyone will argue that it is a clever move to submit footage of Donkey Kong gameplay, with sound deliberately removed, to this particular webiste.

    Ooooh, controversy: we can't earwig so perhaps he's just having a private conversation. :P
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    I'm quoting Ken and I hope he doesn't hate me for it but it provides information and new information is valuable. This is from a post at DKF:

    "Tricky slippery slope here. Almost certainly the low voltage didnt positively effect his game, I'm sure stats will prove that out.


    When I asked about the audio Robbie said "Ken House the sound was fine. I?m just editing out swearing, bitching, etc. I mean, unless you really want to hear that ". That seems reasonable, he is quite the complainer but seems inconsistent with previous streams and videos filled with that stuff without 2 F's givin what people think of it. After other players submitted allegedly faked games with certain aspects missing that would have cleared it up, you know, why would you?


    Is the 'score' legit, probably. Is the submission of games where you are actively trying to manipulate the gameplay by manipulating hardware Ok? There is precedent for it, Asteroids was modified to get higher score per hour than original hardware but there were known examples of scores that uses speed up kits, not really apples to apples.


    For the record I encouraged Robbie to look into weather or not the voltage would make a difference. I gave some hints on how to make lowering the voltage easier (its a pain to do on Nintendo arcade power supplies) I didnt think he would submit anything but a normal submission and the evidence would be clear to the observers one way or the other. This isn't that. The observers are missing a large portion or the evidence that the game is not effected by the lowering of the voltage,.

    i feel like there are 3 basic issues at dkf about this and 2 issues here. but still the more than one issue is preveneting either i think from thoroughly being handled before bouncing to the other and then back.

    i still maintain any rule needs to apply to all so if we're gonna insist on sound then yes sorry i know some people dont care about low scores or think they should have to follow the same rules but i do, any rule worth enforcing is worth enforcing everywhere.

    Sounds a reasonable requirement to add, and i'm not gonna let my disagreement on potential future uneven enforcement distract me too much from what needs to be done in the present.

    Robbie, i'd like to encourage you to add additional evidence of sound, thanks.
    Lode Runner champ, also, Roy was right

    which is known to affect blood flow, and the blood flow keeps us alert. I need to know exactly what it was so i wont be at a disadvantage and i can watch/listen to the same thing

    Excuse me but I worked hard for that 88k.
    Sure its far from the world record but its the same game subject to the same rules. I guess on my next submission I dont need to show the board or have sound or anything because its not a world record! Is that what your saying? What about my 195k score? is that one worth your attention??
