This menu allows you to download several add-ons for your Batocera:

  • CONTENT DOWNLOADER: starting with Batocera 5.27, you can have access to a Batocera “store” where you can find free ROMs, bezels, music themes… and many other enhancements for your system - it relies on the powerful pacman Package Manager for easy upgrades and removals.
  • THEMES: in case you want to install new themes for your setup
  • THE BEZEL PROJECT: so that you can select “theBezelProject” in the list of preset decorations and bezels

When downloading new themes and bezels, or even when scraping your games, you can see a pop-up window usually on the upper right corner of your screen. You can see the progress of the download tasks: those tasks are processed in the background, which means that you can play your games while your downloads are processed in the background!

New versions of Batocera are released regularly, providing bug fixes, new features and performance upgrades. You can select to have automatic pop-up windows when a new version is available if you select CHECK FOR UPDATES.

When an update is available, you can START UPDATE on your machine from this menu as well. There are two types of updates you can select: STABLE to get updated only when new major stable versions are released, or BETA if you are fearless and want to help us debug the next version of Batocera. More information on differences between stable and beta versions is available on this page.
