Welcome to DKF!
« on: January 23, 2013, 02:50:47 pm »
Welcome to the Donkey Kong Forum!

The goal of this forum is to provide players of all skill levels a place to share strategies, consolidate information and discuss all aspects of Arcade and MAME Donkey Kong without having to worry about "saturating" other gaming forums with DK threads.

I have been extremely impressed with the community of DK players I have met online and in person and I hope that you find the forum useful and enjoyable.

I look forward to seeing your posts!

Jeff Harrist

Hello all.  Thought I should join since I decided 2013 is going to be the year to really practice DK.   Played solidly for a week (50 games) and don't seem to be improving, so hopefully I'll pick up some hints & tips here.  Current HS is 266,00, can't remember what level that was without rewatching the INP.

I really also want to improve upon my CK score which currently sits at 215K on TG but I have scored higher which hasn't been verified due to TG being down.  Think it was 375K from memory.  I have killscreened CK but it was on 7 man game, would really like to KS this under TG rules. 

Anyway, a dedicated DK forum is a great idea, I thought about something like this 12 mths ago but it didn't seem right for someone with my paltry DK skills to start it up  :-[

Hi my name is Hank.  I like to play DK.  My high score is 2700 points higher than Vincent's.

Seriously, something like this is long overdue.  A lot of the CAG forums get saturated with DK talk and understandably not everyone likes DK.
