Hello!  I'm "Rev" John from Australia.  I've got a bunch of scores up on Twin Galaxies and Retro Uprising, so some of you might recognise my name.

I've been following the news with Todd Rogers and now Billy Mitchell, I certainly hope TG pull down a bunch of BM's scores.  It's all got me playing DK a bit more, and now I am really getting into the game.  I've found http://wiki.donkeykonggenius.com/Donkey_Kong_Basic_Manual really useful, and knowing some of the 'secrets' of the game is just adding to my enjoyment.  The only 'quirk' I don't like is how you can jump a barrel and not get points for it  >:( , but I'm aware that the same quirk can get you extra points like taunting Kong on rivets  ;D .  Currently I'm stuck on the level 4 elevator level (4-4?), I know I need to learn some tricky maneuvers to get past the springs at the top, I may need to see if I can set up a version of MAME that allows save states so I can practice.

Back in the day I think I only ever played DK once on an actual arcade machine, there was one in a sandwich shop where my sister used to work.  I remember I went very poorly and never played again until I discovered MAME.

Cheers all!  John

Thank you for adding me to DKF  :)
I'm 50 and from the UK and I've been playing since DK came out.
In those days all we had in the UK was the Japanese export (which were hard to find) and we were bombarded with the Crazy Kong bootlegs.
Hoping to beat my PB on the score board and post!

Welcome all.  Have fun and good luck with your konging
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

I don't play games in ways you'd call 'serious', but the timing is right for me to see what's going on. The high score fuss and Arcade Archives put DK back in the spotlight. I've mostly played emulations of the NES port.

If it wasn't obvious, I'm also fond of Lum. The other greatest Japanese thing from out of the DK era. ;D

Welcome aboard Lum and bandito!

I had no idea what Lum was, apart from a chimney in Scots

Hey guys thanks for adding me to the forum.  I played my first game of Donkey Kong yesterday 8/10/2018 at Cactus Jacks in Oklahoma City.  I have been watching streams on twitch & recordings on youtube of people playing.  I watched the King of kong documentary a couple months ago & after that I became interested.  I was born in 1982 so I do remember playing DK on the 2600 but never on an arcade cabinet. I've mainly been a PC gamer.  I played Quake 2 competitively for years in 4vs4 rocket arena on the ogl/twl ladders.

My high score yesterday was 17,400 after an hour of playing. I kept attempting to emulate the play of many others on L=01, L=02, L=03 and get the most points I could out of each level before moving on.  I've got it installed on my PC using a version of Mame but only have my keyboard to use at home.  I plan on attempting to get a good joystick desktop setup that might be similar to playing on the arcade.  My name on twitch is carn519.  519 is my old clan from the 90s.  I plan on streaming my early game play to youtube & twitch so I can track progression & watch my mistakes.

Hey everyone, just signed up after becoming interested in DK after watching a few YouTube Vids, King Of Kong, Chasing Ghosts etc. I was lucky enough to be around in the 'Golden Era' of arcade. Got myself a Pandoras Box 6 months ago and loving it!, really digging watching people playing live!
