How to make apps appear on main screen on shield tv?

So here is my issue, I downloaded a few emulators on my shield TV, the sega genesis, snes and mame are fine and display under the games tab. However I also downloaded the N64 (mupen) and neo.emu, but they don't appear on my main screen. I need to go under settings > apps, and there I can find all the apps installed and I have to run them from there. So my question is, how can I make them appear under the games tab in the main screen?

You need to edit them and add an Android TV banner to them by editing the XML file.
You can either launch the apps using the sideload launcher, or use the apk2TV tool found in the Android TV forum here, to try and convert the app you want to be TV compatible.Hope to help you guy
