I don't think the C64 could ever emulate a 2600.  The 2600 had 128 colors and the C64 only has 16.  You could try dithering to simulate the colors but that wouldn't look too good.

Being a C64 programmer from way back and having looked at everything going on in this group (I still don't have time to tackle my first 2600 programming project) I just can't see the C64 being able to do it.

Does anyone else have any comments?
