So...I am just wondering,

if the game crashes when I'm streaming on my Shield,
ie: game crashes, but still running in background process

Normally i would use task manager to stop the process itself to force close it,
but what can you do when you're streaming? I can't find any option regarding closing crashed apps

And if you go on Steam, you MAY be able to launch another game to play,
but for the same game, you will get "App already running".

Any ideas?

I would try a hot reboot. You're going to need root and then terminal emulator to run the commands, or download any one of many apps that have a hot reboot feature. If you're going to go the terminal route way run this. I'm not saying it will work but it's worth a shot.
Code:
su
setprop ctl.restart zygote

Oh crap...that's kinda complex isn't it?
so basically if I haven't rooted it (which I did), but I haven't installed all these dev tools, i still can't do anything when the apps crash

If it's rooted all you need is terminal emulator from the store.rom toolbox lite has a built in script for a hot reboot but you need busy box if you go that route

Hit thanks if I helped you out. Doing a little bit of reading goes a long way. Sent via tapatalk.
