Severe video problems with game gear

All of my Game Gear games have the same severe video issue. A notification badge appears on the bottom left and gets stuck there, rapidly flashing. A stuck “frozen” image of the game appears on top of everything and also flashes rapidly. You can see a tiny sliver of the game underneath all this, and it appears to be playing normally. You can see the graphics move, hear the sound, and control your character. It's just that it's impossible to play the game this way.
-deleting retroarch.cfg for game gear, so retropie makes a new one. This doesn't work, it also oddly replaces the standard green rgui, with some completely different retroarch menu system I don't like.
-switching to a different video mode.
-switching to lr-fbneo-gg, which doesn't work at all.
-updating retropie setup script, and lr-genesis-plus-gx to the latest precompiled binary.
-doing a fresh install of retropie 4.6 on a separate SD with ONLY gamegear, and NOT changing the default settings whatsoever.
Game Gear is the only system I have this problem with, and the only remaining system I don't have perfectly set up... I just want to fix it and move on with my life!

@mitu I see... thanks for the info!
Truth be told, I prefer the old text notifications anyway, so I'll be turning off the widgets posthaste.
