Actually, I would like my first Million point game to be registered  February of 2010 as 1,034,xxx, No KS. ( about a week or two before Hank broke the 1,050) ,although I had a couple prior to that. This is the earliest 1million point game that I have  there is still video of and I can prove actually happened. I like proof and documented facts. After all, isn't this what the term "official" means? This also makes defending against an argument based hearsay and conjecture much easier.

If Steve was a 900k player in the late 80's then why did he not beat Billy's 874k prior to 8/16/00?
Better yet why did he not claim the $1000 bounty billy put on that WR in late 99?

I think that's pretty simple, like the rest of us,  he didn't know who Billy Mitchell was or that there even was a community keeping track of WR scores. I was obsessed with arcade in the early 80's, then I grew up went to college in the late 80's early 90's and moved on, this is all before the information age. I had a PC computer since 1991 and didn't even know there was such a thing as MAME until 2003. Sometimes you just stumble across these things. I would have liked to have known of all this before then, but it's not like it was a giant broadcasted thing that grown ups who played games in the 80's were hearing about.

An interesting point regarding Steve is that he was playing with 6 lives when he first submitted to TG. Robert had to tell him to change the settings. It's possible that he never KS'd on 3 lives until after this point. There's no way for us to know what setting he played on in college, but given that he was playing with 6 once he re-acquired a machine, my guess would be that it was set to 6.

If Steve is known to have played, and even submitted his first scores, on 6-man, then that actually makes for a legit possibility that Steve's college KSes were 6-man.

What does DKF think? Should I put Tim as #2 here, and move Steve to 2003, since we know Tim KSed on 3-man in 2000, and don't have a verified 3-man KS for Steve until 2003?

For all we know Billy Mitchell may have gotten his kill screen using 6 lives, whilst Steve got a KS with 3 lives spare

Adding 3 names. Wow, it feels like 2013 again round heah!

First J.P. in early March.

I'll just put Dave Clark's first in as his KO6 day 2 KS. (I can fix this later if we get a firmer date for his actual first KS.)

This means Riley's KO6 killscreen will be in the #100 spot for now (even though that game was constantly disputed and impossible to verify... ;D)

How come I don't see this game on the High Score List? He has a DK Killscreener award so I'm not sure why I can't find it.

Welcome to DKF!

The criteria for badges isn't as strict as for the High Score List. Richie's score was never submitted here as the evidence package wasn't complete enough.

Just in case you look at recent dates of the HSL to find new killscreeners for this thread, I thought I'd point out that my KS was just recently added to it but the game was from two years ago and shows a date of 07/06/2016.

Question for the forum.

Why does the list have 101 killscreeners if 4 of them are unverified? Would that not be 97 VERIFIED killscreeners and the other 4 are claims?

Do we not pride ourselves slightly higher on transparency and truth? Not trying to be nasty about it, but I would be more proud to be on a list with those who have done it rather than be part of a list of people who claim it. I have people come into the arcade all the time that claim they have kill screened, but without evidence they are not in the upper echelon.

I would request that the list be edited to reflect 97 Verified Kill Screen Players and 4 killscreen claims.
All scores set at Z82 Retrocade in Sherwood AR

Galaga - 3,614,350 KS (WR Default?)
Pac-Man - 3,214,250 KS
Q*Bert - 1,506,925
U.N Squadron - 1,410,750 KS/WR(?)

Adding Flo, Matthew McGill, and Justin Elliott to the list.

It's nice to see so many new KSers for the year (with two months left to go), as it keeps us at least on par with every year since the beginning of the "DK boom" in 2011.

2011: 7
2012: 10
2013: 17
2014: 14
2015: 7
2016: 9
2017: 7
2018: 10

It's clear that the peak for competitive DK was the 2012-2014 period, but also clear that interest in the game remains solid.  :)

I've been remiss since March, but I figured I'd post an update with a few points of interest:

1) We are up to 10 new killscreeners for the year, which puts 2019 on the stronger side of the years since "Peak DK" in 2013. Still almost four months to go...

2) Billy Mitchell's son (Billy Jr.) killscreened at the end of July, marking the first time that a parent and child (or for that matter any two blood relatives) both made the list.

3) Less than an hour prior to this post, several of us were tuned in to Ken House's stream as Matt "BBH" Hall ("the best gamer never to killscreen DK"), killscreened DK!

That's quite a title, it'll have to be passed onto someone else now, ehehe.

I'll post the rest of this score stuff in the Submissions thread...
