Double Donkey Kong High Score Save Kit -- Plus Extras!

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

This is a slightly modified version of the original DK and DKjr high score save kits. It is altered to contain the Double Donkey Kong code and to save high scores for both games. It also allows individual settings for each game.

Installation however is a little more complex. It requires soldering of one wire to your existing DDK boardset. The wire connects from the DDK high score save kit to the existing "select" wire that is daisy-chained across the DDK boardset. Besides that, the rest of the installation is the same as with the original kit. See DDK kit installation for detailed instructions.
