GameBoy Emulator can be added so easy like any other emulator.

Look at my Tutorialunder

I'm plaing to add a GameBoy Emulator soon.

To Exit my games, I use a simple script with
killall zsens
killall mupen64_nogui
and so on...

if killall not works i use the flag -9

If you knew anything more, add it to the tutorial...
