NES 2.0 Mapper 260 is used for HP10xx/HP20xx multicarts. It is a predecessor to FK23C, both in its register layout, and the fact that several multicarts exist in HPxx and FK23C versions. Its UNIF board names are BMC-HPxx and BMC-HP2018-A.

In MMC3 modes, the final PRG/CHR bank number is the result of masking the MMC3 bank register content according to the specified size (128 or 256 KiB) and OR'ing with the opposite-masked content of the PRG ($5001) and CHR ($5002) Base registers. In the CNROM modes, the inner bank comes from the CNROM Latch (one bit only in 16 KiB CHR mode, two bits in 32 KiB CHR mode) OR'ed with the opposite-masked content of the CHR ($5002) Base register.

Notes

  • The description of CNROM mode is based on the FCEUX source code. None of the available ROM images actually use it; instead, the games on those multicarts that originally were CNROM have all been modified to directly modify the CHR Base register ($5002).
  • WRAM at $6000-$7FFF is supported.
  • The KY6009 6-in-1 multicart menu times its music by polling $2002 bit 7 but does not take the race condition into account. As a result, its music is audibly slowed down irregularly when played on an original NES/Famicom console.
