MMC3-compatible registers ($8000-$FFFF, write)

These registers function identically to a normal MMC3, except that the scanline counter latch register ($C000) takes the inverted value (XOR $FF) compared to a regular MMC3.

Outer Bank/PRG Mask Register ($6800, write)

MMC3's CHR A10..A12 still apply, and therefore should be set up to form a contiguous 8 KiB bank.

  |           1: GNROM banking
  +--------- Lock registers $6800 and $6803

As was the case with similar mappers, GNROM banking is implemented by holding MMC3 clone's CPU A14 input is low, so that MMC3 registers #6 and #7 apply both to $8000/$C000 and $A000/$E000, and replacing the MMC3's PRG A14 with CPU A14 in NROM-256 mode (N=1).


  • Outer bank registers overlay any WRAM, and can only be written to if WRAM is enabled in the MMC3 ($A001=$80).
  • Register $6802 is not affected by the Lock bit in register $6803.
