I've never heard it referred to as the 8039, but it sounds like
they're probably referring to Tengen's RAMBO-1 chip (mapper 64 on
emulators) that was used in Skull & Crossbones, Klax and probably
several other Tengen titles. Any of the decent emulators should run
these, but I'd recommend FCE Ultra right offhand.
