      I thought something was weird. This version looks slightly different than the proper arcade version. Also, I think this is a port of the Japanese version, because you get the Pie Factory stage early in that one.

    • D Vargas
      D Vargas Рік тому

      @No-Bark Noonan It seems the other guy was right actually. The tool that reported dislike data (what the other guy called an API, which is what it is) was there for a little while in the backend after UAclips publicly removed dislikes, so the extension could still find the dislike number in the background and show it (it also scraped a bunch of data on old videos as well, so the dislike count for those is probably more or less about right); it was completely removed on Dec 13 and now the extension is more or less “estimating” the number of dislikes on each video. They do have ways to get the number much more accurate that just plain guessing (like asking UAclipsrs to share their video stats with them so they can compare their estimated dislike counts with the true dislike counts only the content creators can see for their videos; collecting data from new and old videos to enter into their database consisting of millions of YT videos to compare, on average, how many dislikes a similar video with similar stats received; checking the ratio of likes to dislikes given to a video from people with the extension installed, etc.). But yeah, like LTT said, he is sharing his dislike info with the extension creator, and some other UAclipsrs are as well, but the vast majority still aren’t, so it’s still just a rough estimate. Perhaps if the dislike info LTT is sharing is constantly being updated in the extension in real-time, then it is possible that the dislikes for HIS channel could be ~100% accurate most of the time (since the extension is grabbing the real stats constantly and showing that info directly to us). Again though, that would only be for a select handful of channels that are sharing this info with the extension Dev, so in general most channels are going to be an estimate of the dislike count. As the program ages though and more people use it, it will collect more data and get smarter, and hopefully in time the estimate will be so close to the true dislike count that they’re nearly indistinguishable.

They were the ones who said they removed dislikes, and "ruined the joke". I was explaining to them, that there's still dislikes tracked, since they said it wasn't possible to be tracked. Doesn't really matter, just saying since it appears now my comment looks out of place.

    When I first played DK for the Game Boy I didn't know how to beat stage 4. It was only seeing that stage in Arcade Donkey Kong on DK64 that I instantly realized what to do.
    Also, fun fact, there were legal issues with the development of the original arcade Donkey Kong, which is likely why we haven't seen any re-releases of the original arcade version until recently- and that was published by another company. Rare's use of arcade Donkey Kong might not have been above board...

Recently I wanted to beat this game for my bro’s so I played it again and doing this part was the part that kept us from winning because we could never do it, but we figured it wasn’t a mandatory thing. I found out after all these years that getting this coin was the last step and man this shit was hard. But I’m a pussy so I just save stated my way through to beat it and it took more than twenty years since we played it as kids and I finally beat the game.
