First of all I want to apologise for the delay in getting these processed.

I've added the following platforms:

• Atari ST
• Amiga CD32
• Acorn Archimedes
• Amstrad CPC
• ZX Spectrum
• Sharp X1
• PC-8800
• Satellaview

I'm not convinced a platform 'Handheld' would be more descriptive than marking it as an emulator (not saying that's ideal either), since I feel Handheld would be too generic and misapplied to games released for handheld consoles that do have their own entry. I'm open to hearing more arguments on the topic though, or other suggestions.

I don't think adding the SFCMini as a separate platform makes sense given that the SFC itself is handled through regions currently.

So, I just started up Lemmings series. It appears the original Lemmings has been ported on so many things. Ignoring the difficulty of sorting through all the various versions and figuring out the best way to organize them, I notice a number of consoles I had found with the game aren't let listed. I'm not sure it's really necessary to add them now, or if it would just be better to wait until someone actually does a run on those consoles, but figured I'd throw them out there.

Apple II 65 (Not sure if this qualifies as just general "Mac"?)
Atari Lynx
FM Towns
SAM Coupé

The last two, I can't even find emulators of those old computer systems, so I'm not even sure if they are worth adding?

Also, it looks like there are two different NEC PC88's.

Nice catch, deleted the duplicate PC-8800 and rebranded the old NEC PC-8801 to NEC PC-88 series.
Added the Apple II and Atari Lynx.
The FM Towns seems to have a decent list of games for it, so I've added that one as well (a quick search does in fact find an emulator though I haven't looked further).
I'll leave the SAM Coupé for now, let me know if there's ever someone that actually does a run on it and I'll add it then (the wikipedia page lists two emulators for this one as well).

Thanks. I've added them. If the Coupe ever comes up, I'll post it.

Also, I forgot on the list:

Commodore CDTV

I think that's the last I can for the game, and it also appears to not be on the list yet. Can add now or later (if ever needed), either way.

The wikipedia article states "The CDTV is essentially a Commodore Amiga 500 home computer", so I would list that as the existing Amiga platform.

Surprised not to find it on the list.

Family Computer? AKA Famicom, FC for short

Some NES games and FC games have substantial differences from one another.

FC and NES are essentially the same console so that’s why it’s not listed as it’s own. For all intents and purposes it’s the same hardware on the inside. For games that have substantial differences it’s handled as JP NES to differentiate between the versions (same goes for SNES vs SFC).

Yeah I was cleaning up a leaderboard and blanked on there being region indicators (ntsc, ntsc-j, pal) that's good enough I suppose.

I proposed this before but I think I will again.

So with the PS4 Pro granting some games 60fps that only operate at a locked 30 on the standard PS4, is there a possibility of granting 'PS4 Pro' its own platform? This eliminates the need for tabs and variables revolving around the Pro.

XBOX ONE X Is also coming out on the 7th this month, I think that should be added in as well

Please add the Commodore VIC-20.

Not exactly a platform, but I'd like to request Brazil as a potential game region. BR (PAL-M) would fit I guess.

This is fairly relevant for Master System speedruns.

Thanks

Added the Commodore VIC-20.
Added BRA / PAL as a region.

I've also added both PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, we'll see how that works out. I doubt many people will read/follow this if I post this only here, but these platforms only need to be used when there's actual differences that warrant them. Otherwise (i.e. the platforms are identical) using only the base platforms (PS4, Xbox One) is perfectly fine.
