Donkey Kong - GB

Anyone who the difference in rules between Marathon and TGTS for this title? The rules are exactly the same as far as I can see.

    I don't know the difference but TGTS being indicated generally suggests a 3- or 5-man limit.

    There is no video of either of the 2 runs to check what the actual TGTS settings are though.

    the lower scores give some indicagtion there were likely harder rules. barthax is right thats the main difference, but not only one. in centipede both version s allow all lives, but the "marathon" track allows leeching tactics whereas the tournament one doesnt. q*bert's qubes the only difference between tournament and marathon is difficulty setting.

    so if we're just going with probabilty, barthax is probably correct. i would further speculate though the rules used to be different and somehow got messed up. maybe contact the players themselves and see if they remember?

    I noticed Joshua Landi has a score on both Tournament and Marathon settings.

    Both scores verified on the same day, so I think the 252,500 score was done in 5 lives while the 1,452,700 score was done with the rest of the lives and maybe beat the game.

    Here's the link from Mr. Kelly R. Flewin announcing Landi's scores:


    Flewin created a more "challenging variation" (TGTS?) of 5 men since Landi also submitted a score for that variation (but before the track was created.

    [MENTION=31999]The Evener[/MENTION] that might be worth adding to the scoreboard error yet. sure, might wanna wait for even more conclusive findings but nice find and thats the exact sort of thing the thread is for
