I’m not sure the exact state of things, but, Billy Mitchell’s world-record Donkey Kong game, as seen in _The King of Kong_, has been voided by one major Donkey Kong group. Evidence emerged that the score was played on a MAME emulator instead of an actual piece of arcade hardware. The evidence is apparently under review by Twin Galaxies, the major credentialing body for arcade game records. I have not found out whether they’ve come to a decision.
