I have made some interesting experiences with mounting multiple folders which brought me to the ideaof mounting only the roms folder directly. It just did not work flawlessly.

So what I did was:

cd /home/pi/RetroPie/
mkdir oldromfolders
cd roms
mv * ../oldromfolders/

in order to get rid of everything inside the rom folder.

after that I changed my script to include only one mount command
mount -t nfs 192.168.0.1:/path/to/nfs/roms /home/pi/RetroPie/roms
Which worked just fine.

If you have a problem that ES won’t start (white dot), it might be because the paths in /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg got messed up or you renamed a folder incorrectly. (for me at least)

Still testing the setup, so marked as unsolved – but on a good way here.
