10: on the Vs. System daughterboards, this is instead CPU /A15

No behavioral differences are known between the five different part numbers; several games were released on the same board with identical code and different mapper ICs.

Functional Variations

Many boards (and thus iNES mappers) redefined parts of the pinout for various extensions, mostly to increase the amount of addressable CHR ROM.

Mapper 76: Rewires CHR banking to be able to address more total CHR with coarser CHR banks.

(fr) CPU D2 -> |09  20| -> CHR A14 (r)
(f) /ROMSEL -> |10  19| -> CHR A12 (r)
    (f) R/W -> |11  18| -> CHR A11 (r)

      (f) PPU A10 -> CHR A10 (r)

3433, 3443, 3453

Mappers 88 and 154 connect (f) PPU A12 -> CHR A16 (r), skipping the mapper IC altogether.

Mapper 95: Repurposes CHR A15 to control nametable banking

KS204:

  • MODE: If pin 3 is low on a falling edge of RESET, it operates in N108 mode. If it's high, or before the first falling edge of RESET, it operates in VRC2 mode. [1]
  • Pins marked with * change behavior in VRC2 mode
