NES 2.0 Mapper 274 is used for the 90-in-1 Hwang Shinwei multicart. Its UNIF board name is BMC-80013-B.

Banks

  • CPU $8000-$BFFF: Lower switchable 16 KiB PRG-ROM bank.
  • CPU $C000-$FFFF: Upper switchable 16 KiB PRG-ROM bank.
  • PPU $0000-$1FFF: 8 KiB of CHR-RAM.

There are two PRG-ROM chips. Either chip can be mapped into the lower PRG-ROM bank, determined by whether the outer bank number is written to the $A000-$BFFF range (chip #0) or $C000-$FFFF range (chip #1). The upper PRG-ROM bank always uses chip #0.

Notes

  • If the ROM image is truncated to only contain the first chip's data, the 90-in-1 multicart becomes a 72-in-1 multicart.
