It does, and I did.  The advertised "Cartridge.Filename" does not work.

Stella flickers considerably less due to its higher frame-rate.  That alone
is incentive for me to consider switching.  I'm quite surprised it has a
higher frame rate - but it does - more than twice as fast, I'd say.  Mind

probably stick with it :)  PS: OS is XP.
