Timex Sinclair

#1 Post by Gunness » Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:54 am

The other day I was updating some games which ran on the Timex Sinclair. Wikipedia mentions that "Timex Sinclair released four computers, all of them based (to some extent) on Sinclair Research's existing machines", but also that at least one of them had "poor compatibility with software developed for the original".

I don't really know much about this machine, so I'm uncertain whether it's "unique" enough to warrant its own platform, or if I should just place it under Spectrum?

I don't know much about it either, before reading the article I was under the impression that all Timex Sinclairs were based on the ZX81.

Since at present we don't know if there are any adventure games that work on the TS2068 but not on the Spectrum I suggest not creating a separate platform entry for the Timex machine. If at a later date we learn otherwise we can always re-visit this matter.
