Let me know if it works out for you.Also,if you download the launcher and try it,make sure you read over the thread in the above link as it does have bugs.
Yeah I saw this but it doesnt work on the xbox version of XBMC (well when I scanned the first few pages thats the impression I got).
Edit: Actually reading this again, I might be a step closer to what I need . Thnx

Care to share?
Quote: Well in short, check the readme.txt files on your emulators and maybe there is something in there about using a different storage area for holding ROMS and Samba support. Otherwise if you’re trying to get this to work on an Xbox emulator, e-mail the emulator creator and they would probably get you instructions on how to do this faster than waiting for a response here. Good luck with that!
I think I have placed too much emphasis on the "emulator" side of things.
What I am looking for is a nice GUI to search a predefined samba share that will then copy the file over to a local directory. Once that’s done write a .cut file and execute it.
So basically what I am looking for is a simple file manager (like the one XBMC uses) and for it to have the capability to write and execute a .cut file taking information from the file selected.
Example of .cut file (as before):
<label>(Transferred game name, taken from file name)</label>
<thumb>f:\thumbs\(Transferred game name, taken from file name).png</thumb>
^.png transferred with game
<game>f:\temp\ (Game that was transferred over samba).smd</game>
