Donkey Kong champ Billy Mitchell has world records stripped off for cheating
14 Abril, 2018, 02:53 | Author: Misty Newman
In order to submit valid scores to the original arcade Donkey Kong competitive leaderboards, it requires those submitting scores to use original arcade hardware. The investigation was headed up by officials from Twin Galaxies, a group that tracks and validates gaming scores and records.
As a result of the decision by Twin Galaxies, the first official record holder for a million-point game of Donkey Kong falls to Steve Wiebe.
In 2010, Mitchell became the first "Donkey Kong" player to earn one million points; he started setting records in that game 28 years prior.
Billy Mitchell was once called "gamer of the century" for achieving a ideal score on Pac-Man, and for his world record runs on Donkey Kong and other games.
Twin Galaxies does have a separate category for MAME scores, but they are less prestigious as emulator versions can subtly differ from their arcade counterparts, and MAME recordings can be altered. Twin Galaxies has released a statement saying that Mitchell has been stripped of his records and banned from competition, after it was proven that his videotaped recordings of his record-holding games included board transitions that could only have been achieved using emulation software. He instead used MAME, an emulation software, which is forbidden.
In addition to Twin Galaxies' own investigation into the dispute case assertions, at least two different 3rd parties conducted their own explorations and came to identical conclusions. But now, every single one of Mitchell's records has been erased from Twin Galaxies' record books.
Previously under different management, Twin Galaxies accepted scores by validating them through an official volunteer, or to have an official inspect the cabinet. This suggested that an emulator may have been used which would have invalidated the scores. Our community, the DKF community, @xelnia and @YesAffinity specifically and many many others have contributed tremendously and deserve proper and full recognition.
