Ben Jos; I submitted my first 900 k recording and people started calling me a cheater,,, Billy TH Wolf pack of volunteer :( narrow minded. That is an interesting read :) https://www.classicarcadegaming.com/forums/index.php/topic,1437.msg23404.html#msg23404

Finally got a chance to read that thread. Very interesting stuff. I’m definitely curious on what Ben Jos considered a max score. There is not much info (if any at all) on CK arcade scores from pre 2000s.

Other High Score Lists / Help Wanted: Crazy Kong Arcade World Record History
« Last post by xelnia on July 11, 2024, 10:02:12 pm »
Estel recently setting a new Crazy Kong arcade world record has reminded me that the history of that particular record is full of holes. I'm hoping the community can help me patch them. Below you'll find the history of the arcade and MAME WRs as best as I can tell. The MAME list is pretty solid, I believe. There's no sense, at this point, in creating a "combined" record progression because I know of no significant arcade scores prior to 1999, and thus the MAME record has always been higher than the arcade record. Obviously that can't be true since there must have been arcades scores prior to the advent of emulation...but I haven't been able to track any down.

The late, legendary Ben Jos Walbeehm discussed his history with CK and DK over on CAGDC and while he doesn't give specific scores, he claims to have "maxed out" CK back in the 80s. His highest known MAME score is 638,700 so it seems reasonable that he may have had an arcade score in that range back in those days. That might mean that the Cahill/Knucklez/Linderman records were never records at all...maybe all the known records until Wes' 667k.

I also seem to remember (or misremember) that Robbie may have had the arcade record at some point in between Jimmy Linderman and Jeff Harrist.

So...help. Can anyone provide any more information? Do any of our European players any have insight, since CK was more prevalent over there? I'm not necessarily looking for submission-standard evidence. This is more for historical purposes than anything.

Thank you!!!

Wow, congrats! People may not realize this, but this is the new Crazy Kong arcade WR! It beats the 681,500 put up by Robbie Lakeman on August 17, 2016. A bit shy of the 715k needed for Rank B though.  Kappa But I'm guessing you're not done.  :) Keep going good, sir. Verified and updated on the CK HSL!
