Steve Harris and the mystery 2,594,400 DK3 MAME score
« on: May 24, 2020, 02:47:04 am »
I also got some info on a mysterious score. Steve Harris apparently got 2,594,400 on Donkey Kong 3 all the way back in 2001. Does ANYONE have any recollection of the score?
This was 2 years prior to teign getting his 3 million.
Looks like we have a few lost to history scores out there.
My guess is with this one it was probably done on easy settings and so they threw it out when they went to medium dip switch 2 settings for MAME.

This is the list of MAME TG scores as of April 10th, 2003, with no DK3 score listed from Steve Harris so they must have pulled it pretty quick.
