Billy repeatedly saying it's not MAME could be the truth, but that doesn't mean the score is valid.
Yep, this is my conclusion too. The fact that it's not a genuine DK board is enough to strike it from any arcade high scores list.

I had the same thought a page or so back:

Reference: TG Post #2661
Quote from: Jace
I specifically asked Carlos how much more time he needs to get through his process, and I told him that we are waiting to include his findings and evaluate them before finalizing a decision. I also told him that we have limited time to wait for him. He understood and had no issue and indicated the desire to be done quickly as well.

He said he will provide TG with a time estimate shortly. I indicated that we have allowed for at least through the weekend for him to finish up his work, but a decision will need to be made very shortly after that no matter what.

There is a potential TG banning soon if anyone is interested.

Having said that, I did like ersatzcats' way of wording it (e.g. "career kill screen"). =)

My Conclusion on the 1.047 & 1.050 game tapes is that they were NOT generated from a Genuine Nintendo Donkey Kong PCB. The signatures which are normally produced by those PCB's are NOT on the recordings.

Repeated testing and viewing of the game on those tapes do not demonstrate the signatures found on recordings coming out of Genuine Nintendo Donkey Kong Arcade boards." End Quote.

We've known all along what it isn't, what we don't know is what it is.

It could be:

 1. MAME
 2. another emulator
 3. a bootleg donkey kong board, which is only loosely based on the original
 4. a modified original donkey kong board

Billy repeatedly saying it's not MAME could be the truth, but that doesn't mean the score is valid.

Billy said earlier this year that the footage Jeremy has "shows MAME play" - refer https://youtu.be/hWLxh9Yi5Dc?t=2368

I can't see how he would be able to state this with such confidence unless he was quite familiar with MAME and/or was only saying what he knew to be true about those tapes.  If he was innocent or had used something other than MAME you would think he'd say either "But that's what I recorded" or "I have no idea what is on those tapes"

Billy says everything with confidence. He says it's MAME as a passive aggressive defence.

Couple of updates:

Update #1
Tipster has a video on the "lawsuit" against Apollo Legend.



Update #2
Jace has posted saying there is a minor delay due to his schedule. 

Quote from: Jace
(snip)

It is understood that there is a lot of anticipation for closure in this matter and I greatly apologize that there is this additional delay. It is entirely schedule related and has nothing to do with anything else.

Please bear with me (us).

Thanks for posting these updates, much easier than to sift through all the pages in the thread. 
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

As of approximately 26 minutes ago, the TG-based dispute has been formally accepted by Twin Galaxies.
