Misc Donkey Kong Challenges
« on: January 27, 2013, 03:14:45 am »
So, yesterday I was in the process of moving to a new house, when during a break in packing I decided to try the bottom-up-bottom-up challenge. Coincidentally, I got it on my first try! This was on my arcade machine, and I'm kinda disappointed I don't have a video of it, since it went surprisingly smoothly (I finished it with 4700 points total and with 200 on the bonus timer still). This was my first time achieving this on an arcade machine, so now I've finally done it on both platforms.

This gave me an idea to post a list of some of the extra little miscellaneous challenges people have come up with in the past. We can keep this up to date with maybe a list of who has achieved each of them, and I thought that would be cool.

1-1 with 4000 left on bonus timer

*Scott Cunningham (mame)
*Mitchell Elliott (arcade)
*Ben Falls (mame)
*Andrew Barrow (mame)
*Daniel Desjardins (arcade)

I know I posted a list like this at TG bitd, so if you see I forgot some, or have more of your own to add, feel free to suggest them here. Like I said, in time, we can eventually start parsing out who has completed which challenges.

*EDIT* Below are some of the challenges and scores listed over at CAGDC from the years past (here: http://www.classicarcadegaming.com/forums/index.php?topic=4157.0). Many of the scores are quite out of date, but I wanted to start compiling them here for the overhaul coming up! I will edit them more to fit my purposes soon.

1-1 4 man challenge
*Mark Kiehl (44,xxx?)
*Dave McCrary (4x,xxx?)
*Ethan Daniels (42,400)
*Jeff Willms (41,600)
*Mitchell Elliott (40,800)
*Ethan Daniels (40,400)       

1-1 4 man challenge no hammer
*Vincent (26,000)

No Hammer start (no deaths)
*John Mckinnell (107,500)
*Scott Cunningham (101,900)
*Jeff Wolfe (101,300)

(note to self: Make sure to snag other player's scores for the above from the linked thread^!!!!)

The "Jeff Willms challenge": Highest no jump highscore ALL lives (considering that 2-2 is the kill screen):
1) Jeff Willms 16,500
2) Joseph Carroll 12,600
3) Andrew: 12,200
4) Dean: 9,100
5) Jeff: 8,800

Highest score on a (on the first platform of any level, you ONLY move to the right, on the second platform of any level, you ONLY move to the left, on the third, you ONLY move to the right, 4rd = only to the left, 5th = only to the right, 6h = only to the left (climbing up or down is okay), and on the elevator, you move ONLY to the right until you reach the last spring platform, and on that last platform, you can ONLY move to the left (I don't know if it's possible to clear a spring levels on Stage 4+ by moving ONLY to the left, but anyway! lol):
1) Dean: 49,700

The "up-down-up" challenge on 1-1 and 5-1:
1) Vincent (1-1), Dean (1-1)

The "touching EVERY invisible walls at the EDGE of EVERY platform (There's 12 on barrel boards (including the invisible wall near DK and the one at the left of the barrel oil), there's 10 on rivets screen (and the two at the top are the hardest ones, 'cause it's easy to die while trying to touch these invisible walls!), there's 8 on conveyer, and there's 8 on elevator (I count the one that you can do when you are on the first moving platform by jumping to the left, but I DON'T count the invisible wall near Donkey Kong and where the spring comes from (it looks to hardcore, and maybe not really possible on Stage 4+ spring levels).
1) Dean: 4-1

Farthest on a "perfect low score" (800 points per stage):

One challenge a friend of mine came up with was to get 0 points on level 1-1.  I ended up pulling off and going to the rivet stage clearing all the rivets without using hammers or getting prizes leaving me with the lowest possible level 1 score of 800 points.

I'll edit that one in. Eventually, for the challenges that people can simply get with enough practice, it would be cool to rank them still by either time/score/#of hammers used/etc. So, for this one, it would have to be by the time that you reached the top ladder or something (if people provide that info).

I invented one last night - the "No-Ladder Challenge". Max points in one life without ever leaving the bottom girder on 1-1.

I tried it like 3 times so I'm not ready to report a score yet.  ;D

Oh yeah! This is an awesome one! I remember trying a long time ago to try to survive until the very end of the bonus timer by doing this, but I never was able to. I'll add it!

I'm the creator of the wild barrel hack. To avoid legal issues with distributing the actual hacked rom file and linking it here I've created a sort of ips patch for the wild barrel hack. Basically, since the rom is a zip with a bunch of separate binary files I had to make a separate ips patch for each binary file that I changed. In total there are 3 ips patches which I put in a zip file, each IPS patch is named according to the binary file that it should be applied to.

So, here is what you need to do to get the wild barrel hack rom from this IPS patch:
1. Unzip an original dkong rom
2. Apply each ips patch in my zip file to the corresponding file of the unzipped rom (Just google IPS patcher for a program that does this)
3. Zip all the files back up
4. Run mame on this rom (I do this by keeping the hacked rom in a separate directory from the original and when I want to play it I switch the ROMs directory in mame)

Unfortunately patching all the ips patches is a bit of a hassle (and it's also a hassle to make all the ips patches) so I could write a batch script or something to automate this if people have trouble.

The IPS zip can be downloaded here: http://www.solidfiles.com/d/5afe18f3ca/download/

I think a group of us walking Allen through this process would make for a fun stream.
