"With Justin at Rank B and Barra at Rank A...who will be the first to complete the ultimate challenge and reach Rank S?! "

Whichever one of them feels like we doing it first would be my guess. They've both proven that they possess the skills to knock it out.

Well, the deed is done. Rank S is in the books. A great close to a really awesome year for me in the DK space. So many thanks to all the mates who went on the journey with me. You guys da best.  BibleThump  <HootLove>

I'm sure Jry (<3) will provide better stats than me, time stamps, etc., but at a high-level, I started last night (12/19/23) with DK and dropped a ~1.15 game at around 2 AM. After that I got the DK3 hard mode RBS somewhere around 5:30 AM. After sleeping, I woke up and tackled Crazy Kong first, scoring ~760k at probably around 5 PM and then ~1.32 million on DK Junior around 8:30 PM (12/20/23).

INP's for all four games are zipped and attached.

I also had just enough room to grab a full screenshot of my CMD prompt for the full Rank S attempts:

This is the droid that we're looking for.

Great work Justin. I say work because, while gaming is fun, accomplishing goals takes work.

Now that you've proven that it can be done, who's next? There is at least one guy that I think could knock it out with a week or two of practice/prep time, and several who might pull it off with a bit of effort.

Incredible, sir. It has finally been done. Firstly, all of this has been verified and updated on the DK Masters leaderboard...and you get a shiny new badge!

I didn't see much point in doing score analyses for games that are so far below your PBS, so all I have to offer are timestamps (local).

As a reminder for everyone, the 24-hour window begins when the first point/board threshold is reached in the first game, and that occurred when you hit 1.13M on DK at 2:10:13 AM on December 20. You hit the final point threshold of 1.3M on DKJR at 8:22:34 PM on December 20...giving a real-time total of 18:12:21. In between, the second threshold was reached when you hit the RBS on DK3 (Diff 3) at 5:22:27 AM on December 20. The third point threshold of 750k on CK was hit at 5:27:48 PM on December 20.

Here is how the actual game time worked out for each game:

Game
  ​ 
Threshold
  ​ 
Final Score
  ​ 
Time to Threshold
  ​ 
Total Game Time
DK
1,130,0001,151,500
2:52:12
2:56:25
DK3-Diff3
RBS (Board 160)Board 162
2:30:30
2:34:38
CK
750,000765,600
2:18:25
2:19:50
DKJR
1,300,0001,324,800
2:38:27
2:41:35
Total Time
10:19:34
10:32:28

I'm not sure what your strategy was, playing DK first certainly helped for your overall time (not that you were in any danger of going over 24 hours). There was no need to play the games out, and you did end up killing off DK3, but you were so playing so close to the required pace for each game that the extra ~13 minutes didn't really mean much.

Again, since the timer starts after the first threshold has been reached, this had the potential for a time of 7:27:22 if everything was played back-to-back(-to-back-to-back). Something to keep in mind for future attempts.  :)

Also, it was politely brought to my attention that perhaps the best way to rank the Rank Sers would be by fastest completion, and not number of completions. Since this the first and only qualifying submission, I think it wouldn't be too hard to make that change. So, I'll likely update the info page soon. I've formatted the Rank S section of the leaderboard to show the time of completion, the date of first completion, and the number of completions. Hopefully the list eventually gets filled out and we have some kind of speedrun battle for best DK player ever.

A fantastic achievement, sir. And I'll eventually get a certificate (or two <Billy>) made for you.
