Radofin XM-2050 Based Game Console - Dismantled for reference and curiosity
In 1976, German company Radofin released the '1292 Advanced Programmable Video System' and soon after sold the license to eight other companies, Hanimex being one of them. Hanimex released their version of the console primarily in Australia as well as parts of Europe to a lesser extent.
All versions of the console use a Radofin XM-2050 board and each board is stamped with XM-2050-?. The character in the ? position refers to the company that was to release the console. This Hanimex unit has an 'F'. If you look at the component side of the PCB it is just stamped XM-2050 and the stamping on the rear shows the F.
The cartridge based console features two non-detachable controllers with two fire buttons, twelve function keys below pretty standard two axis joystick.
Graphically it can output four single colour sprites and I've read that one of those sprites can be eight colours; though I've not seen that used in any of the games I've tested. The console is able to display a four digit score counter and backgrounds made from differing coloured lines. There are three sound channels.
