Super Pitfall is a 32k catridge, and as such, never worked on the older versions of MESS or MAME because 32k cartridges were not supported, the code just wasn't there to handle it. None of the newer builds seem to run it either, although other 32k cartridges using more or less the same memory map seem to work ok, such as Rad Warrior and Arkanoid. This may or may not be the same issue that causes Rampage not to run since it also hangs at a black screen.
