Oh, and also where do game-specific video settings get written?

When I save them in a game, it says they are saved to /<game_title>. However, I can't seem to locate those files anywhere.
They're just saved inside the AdvMAME config file /home/pi/.advance/advmame.rc probably at the bottom of the file. AdvMAME uses the one config file for a lot of stuff thats broken into many files in normal MAME (it may have been that way for vanilla MAME 0.106 too, I'm not sure).

Looks like there was already a commented arcade_hide statement present in /boot/launchers/ designed to hide the parent ROMs in question, so I just used that. :)

Something else I've noticed is that when I launch the child ROM (Gauntlet, for example), adjust the video output resolution to fit my vertical display dimensions, and select 'Save for this game' from the menu, those settings are not preserved like they would be for other games when I exit the game and launch it again. In other words, I have to adjust the resolution every time I open the game.

Is there a way to prevent the video settings from being lost every time I exit the game?
