nfs://x.x.x.x/MAME/MAME 0.192 ROMs (split)

Looking through the code:
 
Code:
ROM_path_FN = FileName(self.settings['rom_path'])
if not ROM_path_FN.isdir():
kodi_dialog_OK('ROM directory does not exist. Aborting.')
return
Looks like the FileName object is throwing an error on .isdir() over a network share.

Does AML support resources over NFS? Thanks!

AML does not support ROMs in remotes, including NFS, SMB or FTP. Note that even if AML would support ROMs in remotes when you call MAME to play your ROM, for example:
Code:
$ mame nfs://x.y.z.a/MAME/dino

then MAME will fail because MAME requires all ROMs to be available locally.

In my setup I have all my ROMs (both MAME and No-Intro) and artwork in a Synology NAS, and then I use autofs to automatically mount the NAS remote filesystems on-demand. It works like a charm.
