I'm not sure the rainbow effect is really there but I think it is 
because there's a rainbow line (missle 0) along the left hand side at the 
very top of the screen after you press select or on the screen between 
rounds (i.e. the mountain screen).  I know it's hitting HMM0 around 21 
cycles into the scanline but i couldn't get it to produce the star effect. 
Maybe there isn't a star effect.  I can't verify it since I don't have 
a supercharger :-(  Anybody know where I can buy one at?

If it's not a star effect you may not be able to see the rainbow line 
because of the 8 pixel HMOVE blanks (not sure).
