VBA-M Fullscreen Issue

So I did a little googling, but still can't find a solution to my problem.

If I fullscreen then exit via ALT+4 or Task Manager it works and I am back to Big Box, BUT this is where my issue lays.

When I start ANOTHER game and exit with controller automation it returns back to the windowed mode. :(

It's because it is more or less using "escape" as the button to close. In most emulators this is totally fine, however, in some it's not. In this case, a task kill command is probably what's going to need to be used in the Custom AHK Script area when you edit your VBA-M entry. I don't know if mGBA has that quirk, and I would easily call that one of the best GBA emulators. There is also the RetroArch route, and using VBA-M or the mGBA cores. Default Controller Automation works in RA, but you will need that extra script.

Thanks a lot Brad!!! I've been working on my LB for 2 weeks now and one of my final issues was getting my VBA-M to work. i can't believe I didn't think about using the Custom AHK script. I just changed my Fullscreen to ALT+ENTER and my exit as ESCAPE and everything worked out perfectly.
