YDKF Episode 159: MAME

Posted by admin | Posted in Podcasts | Posted on 04-21-2015

On this episode of You Don’t Know Flack I talk about MAME, the arcade game emulator. I talk about some of the different types of computer and devices I play MAME on (including things like PCs and the Raspberry Pi), some of the different controllers I use, and touch on some of the advantages of playing MAME on a computer over building a MAME cabinet. I think about half of this information has appeared in other episodes of YDKF, but I’ve had MAME on the mind and so this is what came out. The sub-theme of this episode is, “enjoy your hobby the way you want.”

Also check out these related YDKF episodes about MAME Cabinets, the iCade, the Raspberry Pi and my Emulation PC.

It’s spring in the Midwest and that means it’s tornado season. On this episode of You Don’t Know Flack I talk about what it was like growing up in Tornado Alley and my experience with two devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma on May 3, 1999 and May 20, 2013.

Listen. I know this sounds like a terrible idea for a show. It’s not as bad as it sounds, I promise. Just wait until you hear about all the fun I used to have printing things out with Print Shop!

YDKF Episode 156: Every Computer I Have Ever Owned

Okay, so it’s not really every computer I’ve ever owned, but it’s every computer I’ve ever owned and actually used. My fellow hoarders understand the difference.

Seasons Greetings, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! On the first You Don’t Know Flack of 2015 I talk about my history with cassette tapes. C’mon, it’s not as boring as yet another 24 hour Christmas Story marathon.

YDKF Episode 154: Emulation PC

On this episode of You Don’t Know Flack, I talk about my latest attempt to get an emulation PC up and running in my living room. I run through the parts I bought, the front end I settled on, and some of the work it took to get things up and running. I’ll probably end up writing and posting a more detailed “how to” article on my website, but this episode is a good overview as to what I did to get things up and running.

If you remember hearing (or saying) “I want my MTV,” then this episode is for you! In episode 153 of You Don’t Know Flack I talk about the classic era of MTV, from August 1st, 1981 when the channel began until the Real World, Road Rules, and all those other reality shows ruined everything. I talk a bit about Headbanger’s Ball, Yo! MTV Raps, and discuss some of the other shows that appeared on MTV over the years.

In this episode I talk a bit about my visit to Rancho Obi-Wan before jumping in with lasers blazing and talking about as many Star Wars video games, computer games, arcade games and pinball games as a guy can in 75 minutes. I don’t cover ’em all, but it turns out there are hundreds of them so I did my best.

Visiting Disneyland for the first time last month put me in the mood to tell old stories about theme parks.

The opposite of last week’s show, this week’s episode of You Don’t Know Flack is definitely non-technical. “The Creek” was out behind my house and I spent a lot of time playing and collecting stories out there.
