Hello! When I try to run some STEAM game through Retrobat, the EmulationStation launcher continues to run (playing the theme song or playing the game video sound). I made a video to better illustrate the issue.

Hello,

Yes this is due to steam overlay and ES is only able to run one EXE at once.

You should try to run steam before RetroBat with -silent switch to hide steam overlay or run steam games with this additional parameters. I'm not able to test by myself for now but I think this is the way to find a solution, but this is not an issue from RetroBat or ES but more related to how steam works. Maybe take a look on steam support to know all command line parameters switchs available.

Olá!!

Hi!! Thank you! but I was not able to sob this way. I don't have the basic understanding to use command lines on Steam.

Hey, just signed up to post the workaround that I found for this. It launched Big Picture mode, so it’s not 100% elegant, but I use it and it works.

Basically you create a shortcut to launch Big Picture mode and then the game. ES stays suppressed until you close the game and then close Big Picture mode. It’s easy to set up and will also allow you to add games in your library that you have not installed.
