NES Classic Mapper support

Post by battagline » Mon Sep 10, 2018 5:30 pm

Does anyone happen to know the Mappers that are supported by the NES Classic's built in emulator?

Thanks for your help and sorry for all the noob questions

The FAQ for Hakchi has a list of mappers that should work in an NES Classic Edition's built-in emulator.

Common Nintendo-made discrete boards
0 (NROM): Thwaite
2 (UNROM): STREEMERZ
3 (CNROM): Solar Wars
7 (AOROM)

All Nintendo MMCs in their most common board configuration
1 (MMC1): Nova the Squirrel
4 (MMC3)
5 (MMC5)
9 (MMC2)
10 (MMC4)
Quick Disk images for Famicom Disk System

And a few third-party discrete boards
86 (JF-13)
87 (Jaleco VROM switch)
184 (Sunsoft-1)

Thanks!

I'm a bit embarrassed I didn't think to look through the Hakchi FAQ.

Will it do DXROM games if you change the mapper to MMC3?

Which games use DXROM, and how do you change the mapper on it?

A list: http://bootgod.dyndns.org:7777/search.p ... up=groupid

This is a handy header editing utility (Windows): https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1352/

Or you can use a hex editor. The format is described on the wiki.

MMC3 is iNES mapper 4.

I think indirectly the question might be "will it run Gauntlet", which would tell you also if 4-screen is supported. (At least, that's what I'd be curious about.)

Or equivalently "will it run Rad Racer 2", which is TVROM (MMC3 4-screen).
