Perhaps this thread exists. But im sure there is overwhelming support for it no matter how many times it appears. Would it be possible to patch the game to allow simultaneous multiplayer over xbox live, so that it stays full screen as is, only you can see a ghost of you challenger? A solution to an obvious missing part to the game. Besides public track sharing. Im not being nasty critical, its just it such a good game... spoilt by these absents.

It's impossible. What happens when one rider gets ahead? Or when one rider has to restart at a checkpoint. It's impossible on one screen. Unless if you're talking about over Live and in that case, think about all of the effects that are triggered when a rider passes a determined point. What if I go over a bridge that crumbles making it impossible for you, in the number 2 position, to finish the race.

If anything, maybe sharing a ghost replay with your friends would be a valuable feature. Then it'd be like you were racing them. But the ghost would have to be free floating, not bound to following the track, just a mere hazy figure showing your friends' horizontal/vertical track position and they're bike orientation.

It'd have to look good though! This game is gorgeous in every way and I'd hate for some stick figure ghost to cheapen the whole thing. Beautiful work!

Im not talking about local multiplayer. Im talking about online multiplayer. So your competitor is on their own console in another location. You see their ghost. They see yours. Easy.
