I'm kind of jumping into the middle of this, since I don't have any real
2600 expertise, but FWIW, several of the hobby Lynx developers (including
me) have written PCX -> Lynx sprite converters.  I can take any 16-color
PCX graphic and display it on the Lynx almost identically.

I could be swayed to provide the C++ source code (written in DOS Borland
C++) if anyone thinks it would be beneficial.
