MP FAQ v2.1 - 2009 Introduction Welcome to the Single Player MP Forum. This is where we take our off line characters and get them together for some heavy monster mashing action. Single player doesn't have to mean "alone". We MP and PvP through LAN or TCP/IP and it is an important part of the SP experience. Our MP experience is totally different and separate from Battlenet. We do not accept characters/items that have come into contact with Open Bnet, so make sure that you read the Accepted Gameplay Rules before MPing because it has some essential information on what is acceptable on the SPF and gives you essential information on the mods which use and accept. Forum rules require that you declare any mods that you use before you participate in MP, Trade, and Giveaways in the Single Player Forum. Your characters and items are considered modded if they have had any interaction with modded items or characters through trade, MP, or giveaways, even if you do not use the mod yourself. The SPF Rules and FAQ also has some handy hints too. The MP sub forum has many threads depending on if you are lookng for hardcore (HC) or softcore (SC) action, if you are modded or unmodded and even if you are looking to play an older version or even a varient such as Median. Please be sure to post in the correct thread or if you start your own thread, please make sure you are clear about what you are hosting. Who should read this? You! You are in the MP forum. Been around longer than Baal himself? Are you sure you are still a ‘good’ MP’er? Newer members really should have a read before you start MPing; it might stop you making a faux pas. That’s French for making a merc of yourself. The majority of this is a quick-reference bullet point style (•) with additional information asterixed below (*). A few things are mentioned more than once. It's because they're important. Please comment or PM the Moderators if you feel something should be added/changed or clarified.
