Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong records have been reinstated.

Gaming record keeper Twin Galaxies said in a statement published today that it restored his arcade scores after “fair consideration” of expert witness testimony that Mitchell’s record-setting Donkey Kong run was possible on aging, malfunctioning original hardware.

Twin Galaxies had accused Mitchell of cheating with emulator software, prompting Mitchell to sue the organization for defamation. The two sides recently reached a confidential settlement.
