Billy Mitchell, 'Donkey Kong' Record-Setter, Stripped of Scores

The top spot now belongs to Steve Wiebe.

A Twin Galaxies member filed a dispute claim back in February claiming that Billy Mitchell's three high scores that topped one million points used emulation software based on the fact that certain recorded board transition images weren't possible to replicate in the official arcade machines and were generated by MAME, the emulation software. Mitchell holds Guinness World Records for his respective "Donkey Kong" and "Pac-Man" achievements.

Twin Galaxies, known for tracking video game world records, announced today that it has removed Mitchell's scores from its website and also alerted the Guinness World Records of its decision.

He was also banned from submitting scores to the leaderboard. That's right, he cheated.

Twin Galaxies said it's not now unable to make a decision on a third score - a 1,062,800-point performance Mitchell recorded at a "Boomers" tournament. Mitchell came off as smug and generally unlikeable, whereas Wiebe was portrayed as a guy you could get behind and root for. Wiebe went on to achieve a score of 1,049,100 points in his garage at home. Mitchell has also been banned from participating in Twin Galaxies' competitive leaderboards - a unanimous decision.

To definitively conclude that MAME was used, Twin Galaxies would need to comprehensively rule out the possibility of all other methods that could produce what is seen on the tapes. We have several different and unique sources of these performances and access to private historical Twin Galaxies referee e-mail distribution records showing where these sources acquired their copies and what the goal was.

But that score was taken away from him by Twin Galaxies on Thursday, as was a 1,050,200-point performance he registered at a "Mortgage Brokers" tournament. We have several different and unique sources of these performances and access to private historical Twin Galaxies referee e-mail distribution records showing where these sources acquired their copies and what the objective was. Rogers, it's important to note, was the official witness and Twin Galaxies referee that previously confirmed many of Mitchell's scores for the scoreboard. However, Twin Galaxies understands that this is required for it to continue its commitment to accuracy. Observers noted that subtle differences in the way the game screens on his videos animated - things like transitions between levels - did not occur with the original Donkey Kong machines but rather were consistent with the way an emulator would run the game. Their belief seems to be that they simply can't trust that his remaining scores are valid if his most famous score was rigged.
