About 5 years ago I made a thread where I basically said that the conversion rate was subtracting 200,000 points.  Based on the relative ease Wes, and Barra got a 1.13 million score and a 1.16 million score, I believe the true rate is subtracting 275,000 points.   So Barra's 1,167,500 score is in actuality a 892,500 score if it was a Donkey Kong score.  I guess I overestimated the difficulty of people doing the Dean trick.  It seems pretty standard procedure for almost everybody to learn this trick.  Of the top 11 scores, only Steve Wiebe's score doesn't employ the Dean trick.   So for me it's a tough pill to swallow realizing that my 1.313 million score is in reality a 1.038 million score if it was a Donkey Kong score, but it comes off that way.

So here's the top 10 in Donkey Kong Junior, and also what the scores would be when converted with the minus 275,000 point formula.

1.  Mark Kiehl 1,412,200 DKJr= 1,137,200 DK
2. Mike Kasper 1,349,000 DKJr= 1,074,000 DK
3. Corey Chambers 1,323,200 DKJr= 1,048,200 DK
4. George Riley 1,313,800 DKJr= 1,038,800 DK
5. Graham Wolfe 1,299,500 DKJr= 1,024,500 DK
6. Steve Wiebe 1,190,400 DKJr= 915,400 DK
7. Andrew Barrow 1,167,000 DKJr= 892,000 DK
8. Wes Copeland 1,137,100 DKJr= 862,100 DK
9. Ben Falls 1,132,500 DKJr= 858,500 DK
10. Clayton Brookins 1,093,300 DKJr= 818,300 DK

Then 3.27 million DK3 = 208,500 DKJr

So basically you are admitting that you suck at this game.  Kappa   In fact every single person sucks at this game except me.  Kappa
