|Summary||08627: UI: General settings are influenced by ___empty.ini|
General settings should be coming from mame.ini, but anything in ___empty.ini is overwriting.
Save settings is still going to mame.ini (as it should).
|Steps To Reproduce||
Make sure you don't have a ___empty.ini
In your mame.ini, set window 1 and filter 0.
Go into General Settings, Video Options
You'll see that it says Bilinear Filtering Off, and Windows Mode On - don't change anything.
Add 2 lines:
Save the file.
Start mame, go into General Settings, Video Options as before.
Now you'll see that it says Bilinear Filtering On, and Windows Mode Off.
If at this point you save the settings, those errors will be saved to mame.ini and be imposed upon your games.
I found this out because I thought it would be nice to have the menu full screen, while keeping the games windowed (this worked).
Later I decided to Skip BIOS selection menu, saved. Suddenly all the games were now full screen.

|It's a legitimate bug, it's just going to be a pain to fix with how ugly the options system is.|
