Don't know, just because Fatal Run is a huge 32K ROM, which need much more work than a simple 4K one. I think, it should be up to others now to do so, perhaps from around here? ;-) 
After doing 21 conversion, I'm feeling a bit tired now... 
And I was asked before to do Ghostbusters II (16K ), so this will be my next task.

You must know I'm from Germany, and Germans allways try to do things (good or bad) 100% correct. ;-)
So I changed all the colors too (as good as possible). That was a hell of work for some games. 
The name "Ikari Warriors" still raises some bad memories, because they stored graphic data and colors interleaved!. That really was a painful conversion.

Have fun!
