I have a retropie set up attached to my TV, which I use for both streaming (kodi) and light gaming, as of recent. I'm still setting the whole thing up a the time. Since SNES and GBA roms aren't that big, storage space isn't an issue on my 16GB SD card. However PSX games tend to be bigger.
I was wondering if I could mount my NTFS mounted smb drive (on a pi 1 B+ somewhere else in the house) in the psx roms directory, or would the 1-2MB/s throughput be too slow to run roms larger than a few MB's?
*note throughput is in Mega Byte per second not Mega Bit)
As a side question: can the rom dir of any emulator contain subdirectories or will emulationstation skip subdirectories? This could help with mounting larger images in a "smb" subdir for instance.
