Thank Prok for the post - For those that didn't know, Billy Mitchell has been getting back in practicing shape playing a lot of Donkey Kong and tonight he hit 1 million points live on stream at the Glitch bar in Ft Lauderdale. 100% legit cabinet.

Good for him! Always knew he could do it! Glad he's showing the haters what he's made of.

Haters? Or people that found out he intentionally cheated using mame?

Glad hes doing well but he deserves the scorn

Glad hes doing well but he deserves the scorn

If we are going by facts alone then your statement is false. TG's original statement that he used mame was disproven and now shows this. It was not mame as the version they so emphatically said it was came out nearly 3 years after he issued the recordings. there is a very good video of his seminar at the SFGC where he breaksdown the whole timeline and shows all communication TG had with him or his affiliates concerning his records. TG went back and forth on a witch hunt and stumbled there way to removing his records.

Twin Galaxies also has the Todd Rogers scandal. So who trusts anything when everybody is in damage control.

Wait so this guy didn't really cheat? Sorry haven't been following. If not feel bad bc many like me just heard the original story... Don't recall the flip that it was disproven

Billy maintains that he never cheated and all his scores are legit. TG still believes he cheated, just that they dont know how or on what media platform he cheated on. There words not mine. There original statements have been proven false regarding the Mame.Dev version he supposedly used.

I have a feeling he is going to keep this ball rolling and at some point in the near future show a WORLD RECORD live video recorded in a public place score right down the publics throat saying to himself "Choke on that". What a great day that would be.

He tells an x files level conspiracy theory of his innocence claiming that the new owners of twin galaxies wanted him taken down.

His scores are still gone, he wont answer questions, he just grandstands.

The panel unanimously found that his tape had screens that could not be created with original hardware. They still believe he cheated.

Odds are they are right.

Oh i almost forgot an important detail. During there "investigation" TG was given a list of people dealt with as well as paperwork documents (dates and locations) and receipts ($ for pcb purchases and services rendered by non other than NINTENDO themselves) to show how authentic his boards were during these record attempts in a live public setting and yet TG wont consider the evidence and continues to keep there head in the sand.

i like the X-Files reference but thats about it in this paragraph. If you watched the whole thing (or were there in person) he had a stack of documents (his evidence) that he brought to the show for anyone and everyone to look at with there own two eyes. The curators of the show cut it short as he was basically pleading them to allow the public spectators to have time to ask any and all questions.

Or they had to end it because he started talking about pornography and pedophilia. You know, like the guy on king of kong that has Mitchells back but served time in florida for some awful stuff.

Mitchell said he was framed too...

#14 10 months ago

Bottom line is he's coming for his record. Wes Copeland and Robbie Lakemen better get there shit together.

So did he or did he not have everything available for anyone and everyone to look at? Did he or did he not plead to have more time for the public to ask more questions at the end of his seminar? Did he or did he not have a booth available for the public to come over and speak to him during the SFGC show? If you can answer "he did not" to any of those questions then we watched or went to two different shows. This idea that he is not answering questions is bogus.

Thanks
Blake

#15 10 months ago

He was in there for an HOUR without taking a single question. When you bring up the topics at the end he did, it's either deliberately to end the talk or you force the moderators to do it for you so you can still be the victim.

What hes saying doesn't match what hes doing.

We probably landed on the moon, 9/11 probably wasnt an inside job and Mitchell probably cheated. The cult of Mitchell astounds me.

If he does come and legitimately break the record, that's awesome. More publicity and a bit of redemption.

#16 10 months ago
Quoted from Blake:

Your fanboy is showing. I don’t know your relation to this record attempt, but it’s pretty obvious how you feel about someone else succeeding. Do you have a wager invested in the outcome? Just curious why your so enthused about this.

So, if he scored 1mil live, how much further does he need to go to reclaim his title?

I dont know Billy Mitchell personally nor am i the type to wager on someone elses accomplishments (unless its horse racing at Saratoga once a year for a couple bucks). Im enthused because he is a great personality for the industry, and it would be another great comeback story. In reality the record 1,247,700 currently held by Robbie Lakeman is a long ways away though just on points looks close.

Some people get pumped up by certain personalities some dont. im not the shy quiet type so when i watch a 3 min youtube clip of Billy Mitchell one liners it reminds me of Rodney Dangerfield and i cant help but get pumped up and laugh my ass off. Its great IMHO.

Thanks

Love him or hate him, but when Mitchell gets a bug up his ass to accomplish something....he usually does it. That’s how he got the kill screen on pac man. I expect we’ll see him break the dk record live in the next five yrs. did he cheat or not? I don’t know, I wasn’t there. That’s between him and God at this point as we may never know. The next one will be live and legit, I’m sure of that.

Common sense right here folks. Get your fill.

Isn't he known for being a massive jerk? Wasn't that one of the reasons he received so much blowback from the alleged cheating? Pretty hard to root for a guy like that IMHO.

actually this is a resounding "NO!!!". Even the people who dislike him have to admit that hes nothing if not super polite and outgoing.

Oh yes, what a great day indeed. Some long haired clown in a pressed suit can score over a million on Donkey Kong! What an amazing accomplishment. I put it right up there with discovering electricity and the creation of modern plumbing.

I assure you, he’s not a jerk. He took the time during expo to show my boys some patterns and tricks on pac man. If ya don’t like him, fine. But give the guy the benefit of the doubt.

I am not a Mitchell fan but Billy Mitchell fraud shit was everywhere when it happened. Started showing up on my youtube feed, cnn, facebook, everywhere. If he got railroaded then good for him if he's fighting back.

#32 10 months ago

I think this all started with the Todd Rogers Atari Dragster WR proving to be impossible (using computer controlled inputs, and perfect start moments). Naturally the Billy Mitchell tape would prove to be another project for YT sleuths.

The tape has screens that load more like a mame screen loads, and contained artifacts ('girder tails') that apparently only show up when running mame hardware. There is discussion about what versions of mame existed then, and how the differences may be noticed on screen.

I really hope with this live million point game that he can begin to rebuild some of that lost reputation, at least with some people in that community. He's a nice guy and I consider myself a fan despite what he might've done with that tape.

The people that are continuing to hate on him now, even after his 1 mil live performance are the same people that were hating on him before TG stripped him of his scores. Head over to KLOV, thats the haters headquarters. I too hope it will change some folks opinion of him but these folks are really stubborn and set in there ways. If he stole there lime light 25 years ago they will hate him till the day they die.

Stubborn and set in their ways cuts both ways my friend.

You keep calling people haters, but the evidence says he cheated. That doesn't mean he can never post a high score or he will never do anything legitimate.

I don't think anyone thought mitchell wasnt really good at playing arcade games. No one is hating, they are pointing out the evidence.

like i said. head over to klov and tell me there isnt pure hatred for the guy. The evidence you speak of is slowly eroding. TG is becoming less and less trustworthy and there has been loads of documented evidence available to the public (if you look you will find it) to support Billy Mitchells records as valid. If you cant see that then you dont want the truth. It is anything but clear.

this guy gets it. But the thing is these folks wont ever get it. Its like trying to explain salesmanship to someone who has never had to speak to a stranger. Or showmanship to someone who has never had to please an audience. Its foreign to them and stands out in a negative way. Now to anyone thats talked for a living (like an actor) they know what hes doing. And then when you talk with him or see him associating with people in person he is a down to earth guy thats willing to listen to your questions, or if you want tell you his stories.

hate to tell you bud but i dont think ive been to many pinhead homes that did'nt own arcades. they might not tell some of these self pretentious pinsiders, probably in fear of not being able to keep up on there intellectual level.

also you can chew on the fact that almost all of your industry leaders are fans of Arcade machines and have worked on, designed, played and own them. They must be wierd too right.

Ask the vid folks if buying a 5-8 k $ pinball is wierd, crazy or just plan stupid and see what you get.
