I want to do something with Donkey Kong 3

Postby homerwannabee » Sun Dec 19, 2010 11:13 am

If someone could bring a Donkey Kong 3 machine I could go for a couple of Donkey Kong 3 records.


1st I would like go after my record of 3,087,100, and try to be the first player ever to get to the continual blue board on Twin Galaxies settings. I recently found out while playing Java, and playing on easy level on my machine that after level 159 there are always blue boards with no black boards or yellow/orange boards. Doing this will take me about 3 hours to accomplish.
2nd if I don't get that I would like to go after the live record of 2,583,000 by Dwayne Richard. I hold the overall record but that was done by myself on tape. I have never done anything like that in front of others.

I don't have a truck, and I live in Adelanto so bringing my own machine is not a reality. Sides the machine is sort of broken with very hard to move controllers. I only have to play one game on my machine to get really bad blisters. Something that is not a problem for most Donkey Kong 3 machines.

P.S. Of course I asked to do something similar back for the last one when I asked to go after the Donkey Kong 3 tournament record, but no one brought a Donkey Kong 3 machine. Of course I was not established as a good Donkey Kong 3 player, so that may have made a difference. Personally to be honest I am cool with whatever either way. I just figured it was worth a shot asking. Thanks for reading this, and have a great day. :)

We'll see what we can do to make that happen.

Thanks for the quick reply. And thanks for trying. Either way I am not stressing, but it would be great if it could happen.

Well anyways, Merry Christmas to all. :mrgreen:

Any word if this can happen? If it doesn't, than so be it. If it does happen than great. I just wanted to know because I really haven't been practicing much on Donkey Kong 3 lately. Most of my free time has been involved in trying to get 1 million on Donkey Kong Junior on Java. I will probably need a weeks worth of prep to be able to have a good shot at getting to the blue screen on medium settings for Donkey Kong 3.

Also, if you can't bring Donkey Kong 3, than maybe Donkey Kong Junior? I have been practicing an insane amount of time the past 7 months, and have reached the 600,000 mark a few times, and I am almost positive I can land a 300,000 point game on an actual Donkey Kong Junior arcade machine. My guess is that I would have a 1 in 200 shot at reaching the million mark on the Donkey Kong Junior machine if given the opportunity. Yeah a long shot but still a shot none the less. So pretty please with whip cream, and a cherry on top? Hey, I'll of course sign the DK3 machine if you want me too. Heck I'll not sign the DK3 machine if you want too. :mrgreen:

All in all it is no big whoop though. If I only get to play the regular Donkey Kong arcade game, I am still happy as a clam. Heck if I only get to play the multi-cade, I am still happy. And if none of those machines are there, than thats OK, because there are a ton of cool people to meet, and a ton of other arcade games to choose from.

I think you can pretty much count on DK3 NOT making it to SC3. The nintendo cab lined up is DK.

Thanks for the heads up. I appreciate that. Sounds like Donkey Kong Junior is out of the question as well.
