Notes

  • Submapper 0: the IRQ counter is a binary counter clocked by PPU A12, and simply counts a fixed number of 64 unfiltered rises of PPU A12.
  • Submapper 1: the IRQ counter is a binary counter clocked by the M2 signal with a factor of 5/4, meaning counting down by five every fourth M2 cycle.
  • Submapper 1's Super Fighter III runs a hardware test when resetting with Select+Start+B pressed. The test exists in J.Y. Company's hacked versions as well, but was not adjusted for the simpler hardware and thus will fail some tests.
  • The commonly available ROM image of Super Fighter III is a mapper hack for INES Mapper 197.
