For easy overview without tons of explanation, I have created a dia where the first basic ideas are shown. Please download the .dia file to modify and re-upload also as .png to allow a quick look.

Multiplayer Modes

Free Ride:

Players play their own game (after death immediate respawn at start), but can see each other in the level: -not much Multiplayer Effect, but fun. Fun because you try finishing a hard level first. With lots of deaths it can be fun, because its still competing.

Race:

Players start simultaneously, after death, the player has to wait for the other to die or finish the level.

Cooperative:

Special Levels which need cooperative Help to be finished (heavy scripting there).
