Timex TC2048 Information

As of version 1.30, vbSpec emulates the Timex TC2048 in addition to the various Sinclair Spectrum models (48K,128K,+2). Whilst the TC2048 is almost completely compatible with the standard 48K Spectrum, it offers two very useful new display modes:-

Unfortunately, due to the lack of popularity of the TC2048, there are very few games or demos that take advantage of these modes. However, both myself and Andrew Owen have written some small demos to show off these modes which are available below.
