Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His World Records Being Stripped Off

Nintendo

"The use of MAME or any other emulation software for submission to these leader boards is strictly forbidden".

A Donkey Kong arcade game. "Guinness World Records will look to update and find the appropriate holder of these records in the next few days", it said in a statement.

It was reported that he was using emulators he was scoring those high numbers, due to which they all have been removed from the Guinness World Records and Twin Galaxies website. Throughout Twin Galaxies' review process, Mitchell held his tongue even though he had the opportunity to defend himself.

In February, Twin Galaxies fielded a complaint by another gamer challenging three of Mitchell's scores. Do you believe Billy Mitchell is still a fair player and did not cheat with his high scores? "(O) ur investigation of the tape content ends with that conclusion and assertion". In 1999, he was the first gamer to notch a ideal score on Pac-Man.

In addition, Steve Wiebe, who featured in King of Kong alongside Mitchell as the protagonist of the documentary (for lack of a better term), has also also spoken out in light of the controversy. The fact of the matter is, now there's a true professional due diligence being done to investigate things that happened as far [back] as 35 years ago. When you hit a baddie with a hammer in the game, you are awarded a slightly randomised amount of points, but statistical analysis of the points awarded in Mitchell's record-breaking run suggests that something was off. He reminds us that he and, presumably, his team will "show that everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard, and the integrity that was set up".

While Mitchell making a new attempt at the Donkey Kong world record would have been a more entertaining, if dramatic response, this story clearly isn't over just yet.
