Donkey Kong High Score Save Kit — Plus Extras!

A simple to install high score save kit that permanently remembers the top 5 scores and initials for Donkey Kong. Plus many extras features such as deluxe Free play, attract mode sound, powerup Selftest, and on-screen Settings.

Installs in minutes! No special wiring or soldering is typically required. Simply remove the Z80 chip from your DK CPU board, insert this Z80 CPU chip into the daughter card (pictured right) and then plug the daughter card into the vacated Z80 socket on the CPU board. Thats it! Detailed installation instructions provided online here.

Note: Since releasing this product, it has been noticed that some 4-boardset style DK games unfortunately have the Z80 chip soldered to the CPU board. If you have a 4-boardset style DK game, please examine your boardset prior to ordering and read over in detail the install guide, as installation will not be as easy in this case.
