Apparently we didn't turn that filter on by accident. It's turned on in the .ini packaged with the new binary.
What I found:
Whenever I close & re-open MAMEUI v197 the last filter turned off is automatically turned on. Everything else is saved like it should & works as it should except for that last filter setting. It comes right back on. MAMEUI is forgetting(?) that the filter changed & is not saving it upon closing.
For some reason when you close it, in the .ini everything is getting saved as you set it except for the last filter(1st line at the top). It seems to let you save them if you turn them on in program & exit to save, but then you can't turn them all back off that way. It'll re-assert the last 1 you turn off when you restart so you'll need to do the last 1 manually in the .ini, if that's what you want(none on would be all zeros).
It also still randomly reset some column widths as usual for some reason but from what I could tell, most all other options were still intact.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I've never had this happen before...
Thanks again guys!
