the way it's hooked up in MAME indicates that the sprite look-up table rom only ever contains a single palette (every entry is 0x00 - 0x0f)

I think there is either some misunderstanding, or some versions should use a different prom, because with the current one there is no way to select another palette, and the driver is hardcoded around this.

It appears we were loading the PROMs in the wrong order; the "dummy" PROM (the one that's equivalent to just wiring the PROM address lines to the data lines) is for the BG tilemap, not for the sprites.
