This ROM uses a rare mapper to make it 1MB in size. For that reason only certain emulators will work.

Tested and Working Emulators:

FCEUX — - must be at least version 2.2.3 but 2.4.0 is recommended. Nostalgia NES (Android) NES.emu

Also have mainly tested with save slot 1. Do not recommend using save slot 2. If you need more save slots use save states in your emulator.
