RetroArch/Emulator Specific Per Game Settings?

Is there a way to set specific game settings in terms of say 4:3 resolution for
lr-mupen64plusfor a specific game? Like Mario Kart and Super Mario 64 will run comfortably at a higher resolution than say Paper Mario or Mario Golf. This goes for other settings on other games like on
lr-fceummwhere I would want to prioritize run ahead for Mike Tyson Punch-Out!!! but maybe want fast forward to work better in a game like Final Fantasy. Or in
lr-ppssppif you try to set an internal resolution higher than the default, the game will crash and will not boot next time with the updated resolution.
I know some of these are emulator specific and some are
RetroArchsettings and I'm curious about both.
Thanks in advance.
- saving emulator settings ("core options") per game - use the "Create game-options file" option after you change something in quick menu > options.
- saving retroarch settings per game - https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/RetroArch-Configuration#hardcoded-configurations ("rom specific ...")

Thanks for the response.
Dumb of me. I already have many of the game specific RetroArch configs on MAME for overlays.
In my personal experience, the per game core saves haven't worked for a while. This goes for my 3B+ and my 4B. Would you mind checking to see that it works? In my experience it defaults to whatever options I used in the core last, regardless of whether there is a game save. Remaps work for me, but core options haven't for some time.
May be because my roms are all on a USB? Not sure.
I just tried one and when I booted up the rom, it saved over my core settings with the last settings I used.
mupen64plus-next-pak4 = "memory"-->
mupen64plus-next-pak4 = "none"
I've tried using PS1 (
lr-pcsx-rearmed) roms as well depending on whether the speed hack and increased res options are viable/necessary or controller needs set to analog.
Is this by chance something you (or someone else) would be willing to test quickly? Thanks.
