Default Pokemon Snap: red dot and Pokemon signs [solved]

Hello! I was able to get to the end of Pokemon Snap (ie: take a picture of the smoke Koffing pokemon sign).
For all the people who arrive here from random searches:

Options -> Settings -> Options -> uncheck "Hide advanced settings"

I ran most of the game on the default Jabo graphics:
Options -> Settings -> Plugins -> the "Video (graphics) plugin" menu

To get the red dot for many of the signs, and a few other Pokemon picture reactions (Dugtrio, Starmie,...) I enabled software rendering:
Options -> Configure Graphics Plugin -> Advanced -> check "Software Rendering"

For the most elusive pokemon sign (the Koffing smoke), I used a different graphics plug-in that used much more CPU:
- I downloaded Shunyuan's SoftGraphic HLE Plugin 1.5
(search for "shunyuan's soft graphic emutopia" on Google for a working link)
(click on "SoftGraphic HLE Plugin 1.5 [Windows] [32-Bit Intel]" under "downloads")
- I put the file "SoftGraphic_1.5.0.dll" with the other graphics plugins (for normal installations, C:\Program Files (x86)\Project64 2.3\Plugin\GFX)
- Back in Project664, I changed the graphics plugin in Options -> Settings to "Shunyuan's SoftGraphic 1.5.0" (maybe requires restart of Proj64 to see the plugin)
- Upon loading the game, the screen was black, but I heard sound.
In Options -> Configure Graphics Plugin, I set the filter to "none".

I took the picture and all was well with the world.

Good luck!
