Just press a+b+y+x+start to reset back to the menu when in a DC game. Will usually only work with actual DC games though and yes you have to usually be in the title screen.

It's real finicky sometimes I notice. Try the colored buttons and then start. I think this comes from an uneven press on the colored buttons when you try doing the combination all at once.

No, both the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast had this as a built in feature for rebooting games. Microsoft liked it so much they included a similar feature into the OG Xbox. Unlike the Xbox you have to do the trick twice as stated above. Once to get to title screen, and another immediately after to get into the dashboard screen.

TLDR; Hold A, B, X, Y, and press Start button all at same time 2 times to get the console to fully reboot. Note, this only works with Katana and Windows CE SDK games, Indie games and homebrew do not have this feature.

I know about the reset, it just boots the same game back up again and not the menu, one of my gdemu's does it if it doesn't have the memory card in that was in it when i set it up in the options to reset to menu but the other one always works regardless
