Pi 4 display issue with lr-genesis-plus-gx

@Clyde just went in and confirmed for sake of argument that none of my .cfg files have any setting regarding On-screen Notifications set to override "On." I actually went in just now and set both of these options to Off and saved a Core override AND a Game (After Burner II) override. Upon restarting these settings magically set back to "On." I have never touched the On-Screen Notification settings in the years using Retropie until this issue came up.

I don't want to be preachy, but if you set these two options somewhere™ (RGUI/XMB or a config file) and the next time they're gone, I would bet my money on either a config/override file you missed, or – less likely – that your config file can't be saved for some reason (e.g. file permissions or a dying SD card that set itself to read-only).
I think that the other possibility, a bug of such a scope, would be widely known by now, except for one that would only occur in rare circumstances which you're very unlucky to meet with your system's configuration.
If you really checked every of these possibilities, alas, I'm out of ideas. 😕
Can you save other options persistantly?
@Clyde yes, whenever I save overlays to a specific game it holds. Are there any files you would like to see? I can add them to my OneDrive and link here.
@mitu I placed the following into my opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg as you said:
menu_enable_widgets = "false"
Looks like anything that does not load with a Game Override allows it and does not use Widgets. Anything with a Game Override is still using Widgets. The only reason I use Game Overrides is to apply specific Overlay images.
@GreenHawk84 please run in verbose mode, then upload /dev/shm/runcommand.log, and then all the various config files and overrides referred to within.
Hopefully I got everything you need to analyze, please let me know otherwise:
menu_enable_widgets = "true"in your alien storm game override.
i really don't like the way retroarch handles overrides - they contain every setting, rather than those that have changed. i think there's an outstanding issue for this somewhere, but i can't find it.
in the meantime, i would probably want to create overrides by hand.
@dankcushions I hope this can be improved. I will try to fix the Game Overrides.
@dankcushions you mentioned making Game Overrides by hand, can I just delete everything in the Game Override except what the overlay is set to? Literally just one line of change?
@GreenHawk84 yeah that should work
