Solves the problem, hope this helps someone else
Ah... retroarch.exe Classic game emulation. May I suggest RetroCake ?
It's RetroPie on Windows PC ( Emulation Station but, updated). So It gives that nice feel for retro gaming and all your classic game systems.
And ReLaunch is still around here, that can do the same thing your looking for, even with an option to hit the Green button, and it will close the app and bring you back to Windows...
I do pretty much the same thing but I use USB Extenders when I want to use the actual controllers, and I always keep a Wireless Xbox 360 controller just for it, so I can play any game with it..
Yeah, you kinda sniffed that out. RetroPie looks pretty cool, I youtubed it. What do you mean by hit the green button?
I didn't sniff it out, I was using Emulation station for a long time now but updated emulators as I went...I started this in 2015/2016 time frame...
I tried the EMUcenter for WMC, as a native app and hated it, I wanted something better and this is what I found, I got it working really well..
This is where I got my original setup but, Everything is needed to be set up manually (emulators in XML code, fairly easy once you understand it) and it's very dated code, so using a powerful Windows PC, you can run higher end emulators than the PI could ever dream of.
This is the old site with a old version
RetroCake is based off the newest version of RetroPI, it pulls the NEWEST updates and makes it into a WINDOWS version with the newest emulators. So you get the newest code and on Windows
If you use ReLaunch to set up the shortcut, it gives an option to KILL the app when you hit the WMC Green button on the remote. After it kills it, it goes right back to WMC.
When I used this setup on Windows 7 (I now moved on to 8.1) it made it feel like a native app, Click on it with your remote, pick up a controller, and play away, when I was done and back in the RetroPie/Emulationstation menu, hit the green button on the remote and your back in WMC with the application closed..
If you see all those systems it can do... It will not show ANY other system, till you have a rom available for it, so you can expand to new systems very easy...
