Hi recently ran across this project, and it looks interesting.

My question is this, is it possible to tell the app that you already have the “runners” installed: IE MAME (As I compile my own with extra patches) & DosBox (as I’m using the DosBox-X branch)

You can use a symbolic link to your already installed binary.
EX: Go to /runners/dosbox/bin/, rename dosbox binary to backup_dosbox and create a symlink in this folder pointing to your installed one.

I don’t think this trick will always work, but it does work for dosbox at least (this is how I’m playing DaggerFall with dosbox-svn).

We will reintroduce the ability to use system wide available runners in a future release. Right now you can use @ScarecrowDM’s method and create a symlink.
