iNES Mapper 123 is used for the 卡聖 (Kǎshèng) H2288 board, an MMC3-clone-bearing board with scrambled register indices, and an NROM-like PRG-ROM register that can override the MMC3 clone's PRG-ROM bank. Its UNIF board name is UNL-H2288. Used by:

  • Mortal Kombat 3 (Kǎshèng/Hummer Team, not to be confused with Mortal Kombat 3 from SuperGame)
  • Earthworm Jim 2 (Kǎshèng/Shin-Shin Electronics, not to be confused with Earthworm Jim 2 from SuperGame)

  • iNES Mappers 114 and 115 move the $5800 register to $6000 while rearranging its bits and add an outer CHR-ROM bank register at $6001. Mapper 114 keeps the MMC3 index register scrambling (using the same pattern) and adds register address scrambling, while Mapper 115 drops all scrambling.
