Well, that makes a case for adding some emulation to VICE.
I have no idea how complex that graphics chip is but it helps that its
memory apparently isn't mapped into CPU address space.

How does a 512 x 512 graphics screen go on a display that normally shows
640 x 200 (80*8 x 25*8)? I must assume that they can show only one or
the other, with wildly differing video timings?
