Donkey Kong ace stripped of standing

King of Kong

At the core of King of Kong was the rivalry between Wiebe and Mitchell, and the latter served as the flawless villain figure.

Because of Mitchell's invalidated score, fellow King of Kong star Steve Wiebe is now recognized as the first player to achieve a one million point score in Donkey Kong (legitimately). Wiebe and Mitchell's records have long since fallen to other competitive Donkey Kong players, but Twin Galaxy's decision does offer Wiebe additional validation for his accomplishments. His official high scores from Donkey Kong have been stripped as of Thursday, and he has been banned from submitting any future scores for consideration. That's right, he cheated. The body also reached out to the Guinness Book of World Records to have Mitchell's scores struck from their data as well.

Mitchell's impressive gaming skills were chronicled on the 2007 documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters", during which Mitchell recorded a 1,047,200-point score on "Donkey Kong".

Twin Galaxies will now recognize Steve Wiebe as the official first million point Donkey Kong record holder. Wiebe also appeared in the film as Mitchell's main challenger.

The investigation was conducted internally by Twin Galaxies with at least two third parties verifying their findings and other experts also giving input. The news comes after an exhaustive review of his scores following a dispute that was filed against his original arcade Donkey Kong score performance of 1,047,200.

Twin Galaxies stated,"Based on the complete body of evidence presented in this official dispute thread, Twin Galaxies administrative staff has unanimously chose to remove all of Billy Mitchell's scores as well as ban him from participating in our competitive leaderboards".

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. A statement from Twin Galaxies follows below. The following investigation has led to Mitchell's banishment from Twin Galaxies as a competitor.

Billy Mitchell was revered as one of the most legendary gamers of all time.

In its statement, Twin Galaxies emphasizes it is evaluating score performances, not people, and that "we care very much about our scoreboard integrity and will continue to improve it step-by-step, no matter how painful or public it might occasionally be". 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.
