NES 2.0 Mapper 315
NES 2.0 Mapper 315 is used for multicarts using 820732C- and 830134C-numbered PCBs such as 4-in-1 Street Blaster 5. Its UNIF board name is BMC-830134C.
MMC3-compatible registers ($8000-$FFFF, write)
Outer Bank Register ($6800, write)

- This bank register functions as a substitute for WRAM and can only be written to if $A001 bit 7 is set and $A001 bit 6 is clear.
- The Outer Bank Register's PRG A17-A18 replace the MMC3's, while the Outer Bank Register's CHR A16 and CHR A17 are OR'd with the respective MMC3 bits.
If PRG A17 and PRG A18 are both 1 (i.e. if $6800 AND $06==$06), standard MMC3 PRG-ROM banking is replaced with an odd GNROM-ish mode, in which the MMC3's CPU A14 input is held low and PRG A14 is directly connected to CPU A14, resulting in the following bank layout:
- CPU $8000-$BFFF: MMC3 banks effective in the $8000-$BFFF range but as if their bank register values were AND'd with $FD
- CPU $C000-$FFFF: MMC3 banks effective in the $8000-$BFFF range but as if their bank register values were OR'd with $02
NES 2.0 Mapper 348 is similar but with the Outer Bank Register bits being arranged slightly differently.
