Are there any hacks where 2 player gets their own view?

It would be interesting to play the normal game in co-op using two nomads for sure. It would get rid of the water issue. only thing with the actual game that would need modification (aside for the link cable code) would be to enable tails to smash monitors, activate switches and the like. Would be fun. :)

Actually, you need to ensure they stay in sync if one of them slows down for whatever reason (not to mention that eventually they will go out of sync because oscillators aren't perfect). Also, since you have two separate consoles, you may as well modify the object manager to let them handle two completely different set of objects when players are far enough from each other.

EDIT: also the fact that even if the oscillators were perfect, you can't know what is each VDP doing. One of them could be in vblank while the other could be in the middle of the screen, for example =P

If it hasn't been mentioned, why not a hack that completely re-designs 2P vs mode from scratch [or near scratch] so instead of working with the existing system, you [whoever that would be] would be making a new system that could fully take advantage of, push the Megadrive hardware to the limit?

Didn't the Mega Collection version of Sonic 2 use some sort of different rendering for split screen?

Implying SEGA could possibly have been bothered to do this when the rest of the collection was entirely emulation.

I take it you never played the PC Sega Smash Pack. (Or, for that matter, used the Xe emulator, which can display the 2P mode so it doesn't look so squashed..)
