This wrapper makes bsnes-mercury balanced core API compatible with libretro,
thus allowing its use with libretro frontends, such as RetroArch.
This core is enabled to emulate only SNES hardware and its subsystems (from
the command line only), like Super Game Boy, Satellaview and Sufami Turbo.
bsnes-mercury is a fork of higan, aiming to restore some useful features that
have been removed, as well as improving performance a bit. Maximum accuracy is
still uncompromisable; anything that affects accuracy is optional and off by
default. The name is because metals are shiny, like the accuracy promises of
bsnes, and mercury is the fastest metal.
This package comes with the bsnes-mercury balanced core, which tries to keep
a good balance between accuracy and performance. It runs almost all SNES games.
