    I'm starting to suspect Billy Mitchell may have not been entirely honest about his Donkey Kong scores..

    • Raven4K

      why can't he just do it on a original hardware system cause he did cheat some how and thus didn't do it in the first place so he cannot recreate his previous records

    • TheOneAndOnlyJim
      TheOneAndOnlyJim 3 months ago +39

      @Raven4K honestly he probably _could_ have done it legit, but he had to emulate, which is cheating. Emulation can change smaller aspects, including game speed and therefore increases the ease of dodging the barrels for example.

    • Raven4K
      Raven4K 3 months ago +9

      @TheOneAndOnlyJim assuming he actually emulated it and did not just make the whole thing up for the credit🤣🤣🤣

    • TheOneAndOnlyJim
      TheOneAndOnlyJim 3 months ago +15

      @Raven4K well the gameplay is there, you can't deny that there was gameplay and it's pretty clear that it was a person playing, there is footage of the gameplay, just not footage of him _doing_ it.
      Edit: Keep in mind, he most likely (I say "most likely" because I don't want billy to bullshit _me_ because you know he would if he saw this) did cheat because he didn't play on arcade hardware, and in fact, was using MODIFIED BANNED hardware, which makes him a cheater.

    • Charles Ochoa
      Charles Ochoa 3 months ago +17

      @Raven4K It's not the fact he did cheat or not. Far as anyone knows whether or not there were cheats implemented on the emulator's backend is anyone's guess.
      However, he did claim it to be an original arcade score, which you cannot do if you do emulation. Which is what it all boils down to. It's not technically "cheating", as in using outside assistance, but rather cheating in words, or lies by omission. Even if he had just replaced the board for a board with an emulator in it, that's still not allowed within the rules of an acceptable claim for a score in the specific category he was doing the score for.

    Ok so this is going to be interesting. If this takes the route in court that’s expected, where it becomes established that his records were fraudulent, does this then mean that there are a huge number of cases where he’s essentially unjustly enriched himself and defrauded people based on these claims? For example places that may have paid him as a guest?

      Lots of ill-gotten gains and appearance fees for sure. It may not be worth it for most of them to go after him for misrepresenting himself, though. At least some people/businesses may have the option to do so, however, and at least all of Billy's suites against others can be flushed down the toilet.

    • TheBigExclusive
      TheBigExclusive 3 months ago +4

      Karl did a great video. HOWEVER there is one major problem with his argument.
      The replacement joystick may not be original to the cabinet, BUT we do not actually KNOW if the Joystick is 4 way or 8 way based on the photos alone. All we know is that it's not original. But could still meet the required specifications of being a 4 way stick.
      Let me explain. Arcade machines used in arcades require constant repair and maintenance. Arcade manufacturers stop making replacement parts for arcade machines after a few years.
      Arcade owners are sometimes forced to use replacement "third party" parts to keep the games running. These parts may not always look original, but still meet the required specifications. For example, a different looking third party 4 way joystick for Donkey King. Or replacement buttons for an arcade machine. Or a different monitor. Etc.
      Twin Galaxies allows world records as long as the replacement parts used in the arcade machines meet the original specifications.
      If your argument is that arcade machine must be 100% original parts, then that's simply not possible. These arcade machines are used hard, and be will be guaranteed to have SOMETHING replaced during their lifetime of usage. Third party companies exist to make parts to keep these machines running. Whether it's replacement joysticks, replacement buttons, replacement monitors, replacement wiring, replacement power supplies, etc.
      If your requirement is 100% original parts, then you would have to disqualify HUNDREDS of records on Twin Galaxies. Because they are being played on machines that use replacement third party parts.
      I have personally watched at least a dozen videos on Twin Galaxies where I noticed the arcade machine was not using original parts due to the age of the machine. But the record was still accepted.
      So unfortunately your argument about parts not being original doesn't work. These machines always have some replacement parts. And getting Original Parts can not always be used. But third party replacement parts (that still meet match original specs) can be used for repairs.

    • leodexe
      leodexe 3 months ago +22

      @TheBigExclusive I think you missed the point where the whole basis for his defense is that they were played on unmodified original Donkey Kong Hardware, doesn't matter if the replacement was done because of maintenance reasons, he still lied and those photos completely destroys his defense.

    • Socially Responsible Xenomorph
      Socially Responsible Xenomorph 6 days ago +2

      @TheBigExclusive It doesn't matter, once it's been swapped out it no longer counts.
      The fact it's probably an 8-way is just an extra kick to the teeth.

    I like this, because it's one time where minor, nitpicky things can actually be talked about as big, impotant revelations and actually not sound silly. It's a case where a different shaped joystick can actually justify being called someting that destroys (in clickbaiting all-caps) someone.

      @Jacob That is the literal definitely of irony. Saying the opposite of what's true.
      Sarcasm is irony with sardonicism, which is overt hostility.
      Ironic = saying the opposite of the truth.
      Sardonic = saying something with hostility.
      Sarcastic = being ironic and sardonic at the same time.
      You should make an effort to learn what words mean before trying to correct someone about them.

    My only question is, obviously the joystick was modified, but how can you tell it's an 8 way stick?
    Regardless of the type of gate (which thank you for explaining why it matters in gameplay and the lawsuit!) the stick color alone as you mentioned throws out his case and I really hope this trial makes national news. 😂

    • Joe Allen

      It’s not necessarily the color of the joystick it’s the style of it. If you ever played Mortal Kombat or Tekken at the arcade you would notice the same type of joystick which lets you move diagonally

  • Andrew Dunbar

    Just a minor nitpick I think. Around '84 a friend and myself bought arcade joysticks in Australia from the company that supplied and did maintenance on most of the local arcade machines so we could make our own for our ZX Spectrums. We also bought some buttons but they didn't have the matching concave ones in stock. I specifically wanted the stick from the classic early '80s machines with the shiny metal shaft and coloured ball on top, so like the original DK one and not like the red one in the photo. There wasn't a 4-way stick and an 8-way stick. The stick had four microswitches, but it also had several escutcheons that could be changed. There was a 2-way escutcheon I think, as well as a 4-way and 8-way one. Basically it was cut like a line, a plus-sign, or a plus sign plus the diagonals. You could only move the stick where the escutcheon fitted was cut away. Also there was a movable round plate covering it. What this means is that you can't tell from a picture if the stick can move 2, 4, or 8 ways. You have to see what escutcheon is fitted or you have to move the stick around and feel where it lets you move it.
    I'm not defending Mitchell and the red stick looks like one from later machines than the original DK. But I'm not agreeing that a stick can "look like an 8-way stick" in a photo.

    • Deuce Deuce
      Deuce Deuce 3 months ago +3

      edit: A good example is that I dislike Alec Baldwin... but I KNOW for a FACT that the gun Could have Fired without him pulling the trigger, because I know precisely how the gun works and how different malfunctions can happen. Even before the FBI stating that the gun was in working condition, Many, Many (nearly all) people I heard talk about it said it was Absolutely Impossible for the gun to have fired without him pulling the trigger.p The truth though is that Alec Baldwin, even if a prick, has the Right to be presumed innocent until Proven guilty (beyond any doubt that he could be innocent)... and I could PROVE that the gun Could Have fired without the trigger being pulled by Baldwin himself and also that the gun Could Have been intentionally (or even unintentionally) rigged to fire when he pulled the hammer back without pulling the trigger... and then "unrigged" after the fact. It could be proven true or false with supporting evidence (like video)... but without other significant evidence, the possibility exists and so does the reasonable doubt. I just don't think he's going to be convicted of anything (for other reasons also) unless he takes a plea deal, which I think they will offer him a good one. Forgive the rant. I tend to do that when I speak of things I believe to be true (or in some cases Know) to be true.

      @Mordet Well you do need enough creditable evidence and witnesses to make a warrant for an arrest. Yes, it is up to the courts to decide if such evidence holds up, though of course public opinion has already eroded trust in the courts on both sides, but politics aside, seeing how he was already caught and fined for fraud three times, you don’t even need the courts to tell you that he is guilty. He is already guilty at getting caught.

    • HowDoUPlay
      HowDoUPlay 4 months ago +29

      ​@Mordet True, but the 1996 charges are much more straightforward: he plead guilty to conspiracy, securities fraud, money laundering, and criminal contempt in federal court. He has in fact, ADMITTED to fraud, and been accused and arrested for it several times beyond the first admission. Those accusations and arrests are not without evidence themselves, and present a highly-probable case that this man continues to commit crimes well beyond his own admissions in 1996. Kinda like that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Well if you've been fooled thrice, you just don't learn.

    The ironic part of this all is that billy mitchell can actually get all the scores he faked at the time he faked them, thus the recording. In Todd and Billy's minds since Twin Galaxy employees only had to witness said event even if they were home gaming they felt it should count since they were employees so they felt no shame in using the video from casual play.

    He could always claim he hadn't realized the machine was modified, but then how would he explain not noticing the fact that he had control he wouldn't normally have during the entire play session?

    • TheBigExclusive
      TheBigExclusive 3 months ago +2

      Karl did a great video. HOWEVER there is one major problem with his argument.
      The replacement joystick may not be original to the cabinet, BUT we do not actually KNOW if the Joystick is 4 way or 8 way based on the photos alone. All we know is that it's not original. But could still meet the required specifications of being a 4 way stick.
      Let me explain. Arcade machines used in arcades require constant repair and maintenance. Arcade manufacturers stop making replacement parts for arcade machines after a few years.
      Arcade owners are sometimes forced to use replacement "third party" parts to keep the games running. These parts may not always look original, but still meet the required specifications. For example, a different looking third party 4 way joystick for Donkey King. Or replacement buttons for an arcade machine. Or a different monitor. Etc.
      Twin Galaxies allows world records as long as the replacement parts used in the arcade machines meet the original specifications.
      If your argument is that arcade machine must be 100% original parts, then that's simply not possible. These arcade machines are used hard, and be will be guaranteed to have SOMETHING replaced during their lifetime of usage. Third party companies exist to make parts to keep these machines running. Whether it's replacement joysticks, replacement buttons, replacement monitors, replacement wiring, replacement power supplies, etc.
      If your requirement is 100% original parts, then you would have to disqualify HUNDREDS of records on Twin Galaxies. Because they are being played on machines that use replacement third party parts.
      I have personally watched at least a dozen videos on Twin Galaxies where I noticed the arcade machine was not using original parts due to the age of the machine. But the record was still accepted.
      So unfortunately your argument about parts not being original doesn't work. These machines always have some replacement parts. And getting Original Parts can not always be used. But third party replacement parts (that still meet match original specs) can be used for repairs.

    • Swahilimaster
      Swahilimaster 3 months ago

      @TheBigExclusive Up until 2018 Twin Galaxies was perfectly happy having world records on file so long as Todd Rogers said they were legit, regardless of any sort of proof. I have no problem with arcade machines not having factory default parts, so long as the replacements are within the standard of exactly what the originals were capable of, but Twin Galaxies hardly has the most stringent requirements to prove your score to get into their records, and quite frankly the speed runners themselves typically have more expertise than anybody working for them. The argument is entirely valid if somebody can prove that it is an 8-way joystick.

    You know there's something I've always wondered about WR attempts like these. The rules are that the attempt must be done on original hardware. But my question is that if for example you needed to replace a piece for whatever reason, could you use an exact copy of that piece? Like using a joystick from another Donkey Kong arcade machine. Or would that make it illegal to use?

    • BlackIC
      BlackIC 3 months ago

      My understanding is that using the joystick from another DK machine would be fine. It's still the original hardware of the game. Imagine a playstation with a broken laser assembly. Replacing that doesn't change the function of the system.

    • Austin Sackett
      Austin Sackett 3 months ago

      That's what I was thinking. I know a lot of these old arcade machine are pushing into their 40s. Even with proper maintenance and care stuff could break and/or wear down over that long. So there has to be some leeway with keeping the machine functional.

      It's a product of the time and the competitive arcade scene during competitive gaming's formative years. A lot of these guys weren't doing it expecting to build a lifelong career from games or to be held to proof standards that didn't even exist yet. Have a friend who happens to be one of the only refs for your small hobby verify a score that you didn't know was impossible, fake some interviews, get printed in a few books.
      It's only now that their hobby is mainstream and their lives are built around it that they have incentive to care, but it's far too late now. XD

      You say that like there's a vast gulf between the two, but you have to understand that Guiness World Records are essentially a joke. Some are legitimately impressive markers of human achievement, but most of them are from folk who want bragging rights and know GWB are publishers who just want to fill books with low effort content to sell.
      In the realm of video games, decades went by before there was any real rigor to documenting the veracity of records, and grifters like Mitchell rode it as long as he could... well actually a lot longer than he could, as his complete inability to let this go proves.
      It's kind of a shame that he could have gone into history as a longtime early record holder with the respect that entailed, but all his efforts to hold onto that glory by cheating his way through 'defending his title' once far better players had come along, are going to doom him to a legacy as a con man, grifter, and liar.

    Seems like it would be very hard for him to argue that there was more than one machine at the convention considering that one is set up to record. That said, it doesn't seem like it would be very hard to modify the joystick so that it resembled an original while still having 8 way function. Why would they leave it like that unless they always planned to suppress all visual evidence? Also, if he was using an 8 way stick, couldn't you tell or at least suspect by looking at the gameplay? If so why haven't people questioned this before now?

    An 8-Way stick would be more difficult for many reasons.
    1. The diagnals do not register and there is no movement of Jumpman - It's as if you are stuck
    2. Accidental diiagnal presses would happen and you would not be able to move at a critical moment
    3. Your learned hand movements would not work well in this config if you are an experienced DK player.
    4. (Bonus point) a longer shaft makes playing DK more difficult as well

    Sincere question here (and certainly not trying to defend Mitchell): Is it absolutely certain that there was only one DK arcade cabinet style ever produced (with black stubby controller) - or is it possible that there were later (or earlier) versions with a different (yet still 4-way) stick?
    Asking because in those early arcade days with uprising backyard / garage companies there were always some shortcomings, supply issues or last-minute changes to designs before a new batch got produced. So at least in my imagination, there could be slightly different versions of such cabinets, especially if multiple suppliers were involved or cabinets got produced for overseas markets.
    Without a sworn statement made by a production designer or some other credible source at Nintendo / Radar systems (i.e. the arcade platform), this photograph is purely circumstantial.

    Crazy stuff, i would be curious what difference one of these modified cabinets make vs a real one, i would imagine the 8way stick making it easier but i wonder by how much, obviously if its an emulator you could do all sorts of things to just modify the score and make the game easier.
    Also feel like if he was as good as he says he could just recreate those scores on a real original machine done in a controlled setting and show that is was possible.
    Just watched some of the other record attempts now i am curious what i could do not that i have the real hardware but even on a emulator just to see how far behind i am from these other guys.
