Donkey Kong Million Point Timeline

(1/21) > >>

As a companion to the killscreener timeline, here is a chronology of every known million-point player's first "rollover."

All of Billy Mitchell's three TG-verified million point performances have since been "de-verified" and struck from the high score lists of both TG and DKF, which you can read about here. Whether or not Mitchell ever actually achieved a legitimate million point score (prior to 2018) is now considered unknown. I have, however, left him on the list as an "asterisked entry", since his early scores were accepted at one time, and are (obviously) highly significant to the history of this game.

Are there any names missing? Perhaps. Based on his YouTube videos, Ben Mazowita seems extremely capable, but he isn't part of the community. There is also a rumor of a player from Japan who achieved a million-point game (on the US version) at some point prior to 2015, but this player is unknown to us as well.

We can be reasonably confident, at any rate, that Steve Wiebe's 1,006 was the first-ever million point game of DK, and that no more than a handful of players (if any) are missing from this list.

Oops, I have your date wrong Phil. I know it was February, do you know the date?

You over-wrote that .inp with your 1,050 game.
