Super Cassette Vision

The Super Cassette Vision (a.k.a. スーパーカセットビジョン, Suupaa Kasetto Bijon) is a console developed by Epoch Co. It was released in Japan on July, 1984 and France later that same year.

A version of the system targeted the young female market, the Super Lady Cassette Vision.

To say it was not successful is an understatement. Epoch would go on to drop out of the console market by 1987.

This system scrapes metadata for the “scv” group and loads the scv set from the currently selected theme, if available.

RetroArch (formerly SSNES), is a ubiquitous frontend that can run multiple “cores”, which are essentially the emulators themselves. The most common cores use the libretro API, so that's why cores run in RetroArch in Batocera are referred to as “libretro: (core name)”. RetroArch aims to unify the feature set of all libretro cores and offer a universal, familiar interface independent of platform.

RetroArch configuration

RetroArch offers a Quick Menu accessed by pressing [HOTKEY] + South button (B SNES) which can be used to alter various things like RetroArch and core options, and controller mapping. Most RetroArch related settings can be altered from Batocera's EmulationStation.

Standardized features available to all libretro cores: scv.videomode, scv.ratio, scv.smooth, scv.shaders, scv.pixel_perfect, scv.decoration, scv.game_translation
