I also think the in game quit menu options could do with an option to return to Ring Zero; as well as the standard press Y to quit or N to cancel, the addition of a say press, say, H to return to Ring Zero. I think this would promote Ring Zero (i.e they would think 'ooo what's this third option that I've not seen in the original game or any other port...'), given that most users probably still use Snowberry and thus skip Ring Zero.

The Doom 3 BFG Edition alters the Vanilla Doom quit dialog to add an option to return to it's game select frontend, alongside the normal quit program completely option.

I was going to open an issue similar to this.

I think that this is a good idea, but it would perhaps be a better idea to create an option such that, when a game is launched from Ring Zero, "exiting" the game will return to Ring Zero. In order to prevent the window close event generated by the close button on the window decorations from getting hijacked in this scenario, the engine would need to know about the source of the exit request.

I think it's very logical that if the game was started from Ring Zero, quitting the game leads back to Ring Zero. When Snowberry is removed, this is likely the most natural default behavior.

Many game UIs have separate "Quit Game" and "Quit to [Operating System]" menu items, that's always one way to go.
