Lots of folks seemed pretty happy with the Retrode. The site even says there are more in production!

I was referring to local multiplayer.Yes, but given that it has a multiplayer mode at all, it doesn't seem that the data format would be different merely due to a lack of local multiplayer, as you suggested. But this is speculation, admittedly.
AFAIK there was only 1 PC variant released in the US...Yes, the other PC versions (i.e. prior to The Typing of the Dead II) were Japan-exclusive.
uh, yeah... if you can't understand the language you can't understand the jokes.The translation featured things like Monty Python references. If you tried to literally translate something like that to Japanese, probably no on in Japan would get the joke; the same goes translating things the other way.
The PC version is only single player howeverActually, it has a network mode for 2 players, doesn't it?
I own just about every variant of this gameEven all the different PC versions? (Someone needs to fix the Wikipedia article regarding those.)
For me a big part of the entertainment that this game provides is the ridiculous words and phrases that the game makes you type; something that is completely lost in translation with the Japanese version.Completely? The ridiculous words and phrases are frequently cited as a big positive of the game.
If you recall, no levels in World 1 in the original game have any underground bonus areas with items or anything, so there was no need to set one.What about the one in 1-1 with the switch block that makes the big "3" appear?
These days all you need for that on the wii is Bannerbomb, homebrew channel, and Riivolution.Bannerbomb doesn't work with the latest version of the System Menu, does it? I thought that's what Letterbomb was for.
Riivolution can load up things like Mario Kart tracks and Newer Super Mario Brothers without any sort of hard patching - you just put the game in the wii and you're good to go. They even save in thier own spot on the SD card.That is pretty cool. I was not aware of that.
I'm wondering because I recall that Wii hacking worked in a fairly similar way, with Newer Super Mario Bros Wii and the Mario Kart Wii custom tracks using a legitimate copy of the game to run content from an SD card.As has been mentioned, Smash Bros Brawl has a security exploit that can be used to load any homebrew code, including Project M, though there are now other exploits that do not require any licensed software at all. It was my understanding that Newer Super Mario Bros Wii and Mario Kart Wii custom tracks required custom versions of the game to be run from a Wii that had already been compromised. Have things changed..?
I'm guessing a USB-to-parallel could also be an option?Generally USB-to-parallel devices are good for hooking up printers and absolutely nothing else. Adding a proper parallel port using a PCI card is generally the only way to go.
(but you can choose just any that's known to have a driver on your OS.)
If you can find one, an EZ-Flash V is what I use.Isn't that the same as the 3-in-1?
So after being really disappointed with the Shadowgate PC remake I'd really wanted to go back the original (the NES port of the original to be exact).What was so bad about it, if I may ask?
