Windows 7: Games in Win7 Media Centre

Games in Win7 Media Centre

Hello,

I have say 15 games I play with my wireless xbox controller on my htpc. Games like Dirt, Grid, Fallout 3 etc

How can I launch these with the remote from within MC? I presume a third party application will be needed to display thums/links? Please help, I know there were some ways of doing it on earlier versions of Windows?

On exiting the games I would be looking to return to the MC interface where I left off?

Thanks,

Dean.

It won't let you just navigate to where your games are and select em? ( I dunno what you'd call it i guess the left mouse button on your remote? ) on the game?

Lemme know!
