>> No.4695784

Guinness needs to dump TG ASAP. TG is mostly a place where cheating cronies conspire against honest players. We'll see what happens tomorrow and if they indeed tossed the deadline, someone ought to dox the fuck out of them and more.

Not only is TG incompetent and corrupt, but their website is one of the most unintuitive trash sites I've ever witnessed. They make it near impossible to check some scores and their "maintenance" seems to break functionality more than it fixes, so they're lousy all around.

Back to Guinness, it's sad that the fat fuck in charge over there fell in love with Walter Day, but it happened. How can we get Guinness to realize that we don't need TG "expertise"?

>> No.4695798

Guinness doesn't have the expertise on their own, so for arcade records they need to outsource to someone. If you know another institution that can hold their hands other than TG, you should write into then and suggest it. If a lot of people complained about TG-based records in Guinness, they would do something about it.

>> No.4695810

That institution would have to be created and comprised of arcade game collectors. Or, Guinness could simply take their heads out of their asses and hire an arcade collector/enthusiast whose statements can be readily verified or debunked by the classic gaming community at large via youtube. Seriously, it's not that hard to weed through the pretenders because the real experts will chime in and make their feelings known, as they often do.

>> No.4695815

Or, instead of what I just posted, maybe Guinness could hire the folks from the Donkey Kong leaderboards website. They're already proven their ability to discern real arcade gameplay from MAME. They've earned their credibility through hardcore proof, so if they applied the same tests to other classic games, I say we'd be golden.

Twin Galaxies doesn't have much of anything to do with speedrunning anymore. Speedrunners got fed up with their bullshit long ago and left for Speed Demos Archive, then speedrun.com. Unfortunately, arcade score chasers don't really have another centralized database they can migrate to, and past efforts to get one started all fizzled out, so for now they're stuck with TG and various game-specific leaderboards. Though maybe now with all the recent drama, someone will step up and create a good replacement.

True, but back then there was no one else, but now we got choices, and according to them (and they may have lied again) is that Billy and Walter have had nothing to do with TG since 2014. Personally, I think they're lying and receiving financial support from Billy which is one of the reasons why they don't bounce his scores immediately, and perhaps from the threat of a lawsuit as Billy is suing one of the guys who busted him on his cheating.

but something from the infamous east side dave show interview kinda stuck with me. dave pointed out that billy is like a heel in wrestling. billy plays up what a goliath figure he is and you're supposed to hate him, and that drama brings more attention to the DK world record overall. dave claims that billy has always been a nice guy to him every time he's interviewed him for radio over the years. also dave obviously knows NOTHING about the intricacies of the scandal, and doesn't even know what MAME or emulation is, but is aware of the DK world record because of the mitchell vs wiebe rivalray and mitchell's heel persona.

tldr: we're being played. billy doesn't care about the record at all, and just wants headlines for himself and the TG scene as a whole. dave instinctually grasps this while we argue about whether he actually cheated

I have a theory that Billy Mitchell isn't as evil as people make him out to be, that he's really a victim of circumstance and then became "too big to fail."

I think some of his original world records were recorded incorrectly, but because he's a dirty rotten cheater, but out of human error in the days before video game runs were recorded. He is pretty good at 80's arcade games, but the small errors in recording records made him larger than life that he, himself, believed was all true.

I think at some point he HAD start cheating so that he could keep up with his own legend that only occurred by mistake.
