A Riley thread not started by Riley
« on: November 06, 2017, 05:19:58 am »
George Riley is so far beyond the rest of the Donkey Kong 3 competition, it's a fair question to ask: what is actually a good DK3 score? It wouldn't be proper for Riley to answer that question himself since 1) he might be biased as the WR holder and 2) he's George Riley. So, I've come up with the definitive formula for judging DK3 scores, on any setting:

RILEY ÷ 5

Whatever Riley's PB is on a particular DK3 setting, divide that by 5 and that gives you the value for a good score on those settings. Thus:

        Setting          George Riley    Riley ÷ 5

Difficulty 1 - Marathon   13,957,600     2,791,500
Difficulty 1 - 5 Lives     2,532,100       506,400
Difficulty 2 - Marathon    8,772,700     1,754,500
Difficulty 2 - 5 Lives     1,513,000       302,600
Difficulty 3 - Marathon    6,108,200     1,221,600
Difficulty 3 - 5 Lives     1,303,000       260,600
Difficulty 4 - Marathon    2,407,400       481,500
Difficulty 4 - 5 Lives       661,700       132,300

Nice thread Jry, the most original on here for a long time.

I have a feeling by Christmas your equation may change to

Strain - 50k = Barrow - 75k = Riley ÷ 5 = Everyone else.

Surprisingly your simple system works for the most part.  I was going to say, go with the top 10%, but that has it's problems.
For instance a top 10% score for Donkey Kong is 971k.  A top 10% score for Donkey Kong 3 marathon easy is 1.1 million.  Sorry 971k on Donkey Kong is WAY harder to achieve than 1.1 million on DK3 easy.

So surprisingly it's probably better than my slightly more complicated percentage system.

Ok here is how it works

A good DK score is calculated as:

Riley's PB + x (where x is positive)

850k is still top 100.  I'm also a top 100 arcade/mame gamer.     So why limit myself to one game?
