Since I'm playing with Stella's Supercharger emulation I thought
I'd get everyone's input on something.  Currently, I have a very
simple "dummy" ROM that handles the SC ROM routines for startup
and multi-loads.  Basically, it clears memory, sets the bankswitching 
mode and jumps to the start of the code.  What do you all think 
about putting in code to "emulate" the starfield screens and the 
progress bar screen?  This would give a little more of the 
original Supercharger feel to the games.

One thing I'm concerned about is having the screen there even though
nothing is really happening :-)  However, I guess we could have it
so that if the user presses the joystick button it interrupts the
screen and jumps directly to the game.

If people think it's a good idea then is anyone interested in 
writing the 2600 code to "emulate" these screens?  I would but
I'm way to busy at this time :-(
