Billy Mitchell stripped of Donkey Kong world record

Billy Mitchell stripped of Donkey Kong world record

Mitchell was previously the reigning champion of Donkey Kong and the first million-point record holder, and King of Kong chronicled nice-guy newcomer Steve Wiebe's attempt to topple the king.

Billy Mitchell, famous for being very good at arcade video games and appearing to be cartoonishly villainous in the documentary King of Kong (to the extent that he filed against Cartoon Network's Regular Show over a character who cheats at arcade games called Garrett Bobby Ferguson) has now had several of his high scores thrown out by official high-score-tracking org Twin Galaxies - including the score he achieved as part of the aforementioned documentary.

In other news, the current world record holder for the highest score in Donkey Kong is held by Robbie Lakeman. Twin Galaxies has released a statement saying that Mitchell has been stripped of his records and banned from competition, after it was proven that his videotaped recordings of his record-holding games included board transitions that could only have been achieved using emulation software.

Atlanta remains busiest airport in 2017
Delhi International airport has already made a master plan to expand the Terminal 1. It saw more than 59 million fliers in 2017, a slight uptick from the previous year.

Now, however, things have changed: Billy Mitchell is no longer the Donkey Kong king. The emulation software is strictly forbidden for record submissions for the classic arcade-style games. His place in history remains solidified due to 2007's The King of Kong, and that time he sued Cartoon Network over a fictional floating head who cheats at arcade games.

Most notable was the 3rd party (Carlos Pinerio) that Billy Mitchell engaged to help examine the dispute case claims on his behalf, utilizing whatever original equipment Billy could provide, whose final finding was consistent with Twin Galaxies investigation and others'. But, Twin Galaxies puts the score up anyway, sending Steve Wiebe home packing. Mitchell continues to hold the record as the first person to achieve a ideal score in Pac-Man in 1999. "From a Twin Galaxies viewpoint, the only important thing to know is whether or not the score performances are from an unmodified original DK arcade PCB [printed circuit board] as per the competitive rules", the site administration writes. This kind of testing is beyond the scope of the dispute case needs. "We now believe that they are not from an original unmodified DK arcade PCB, and so our investigation of the tape content ends with that conclusion and assertion". Our public documentation of our processes and conclusions are meant to satisfy scrutiny for the long term, so in instances where warranted our comprehensiveness must go above and beyond what would normally satisfy.

After months of research, they concluded that there was sufficient evidence to strip Mitchell of all his records, not just those of Donkey Kong. Wiebe went on to achieve a score of 1,049,100 points in his garage at home.
