ore overrides will always be prioritized and will rule out retroarch's ge
This makes sense and is super helpful. I think what I was getting confused about is that when I would choose "Save Current Configuration" it was not only available to me when I had a rom running in one of the RA cores, but that it would save the .cfg in the Emulator-specific folder. It being available when emulating and saving it to its own file are why it confused me. I feel like the "Save Current Configuration" almost shouldn't be available when emulation is happening since saving it can cause issues v. core overrides, although I know this is a design choice by RA and not necessarily something that can be resolved/removed just for RetroPie.
Anywa, thank you so much for clarifying a bit! I appreciate it.
