NES Emulation Mapper Support[2][3]

This table gives some idea of the mapper support that the Game King-II NES emulator is capable of. By no means is this an exhaustive list, and it is not a guarantee that a game will work, even if its mapper is supported. Additionally, support seems to vary depending on the game being on internal flash memory or SD card.
