Yup, if you have a total of 8 set of cd keys, both D2C and D2X, you can do it. With each PC handle 4 diablo, you can run a 8 players game.

In fact, this is the only way to run a 8 player game with 2 pc as there is some limitation that each IP can run 4 diablo game at the same time. Even you have 8 CD key but you cannot run a 8 player game with a single PC.

The problem is: you really have 8 set CD key for both D2C and D2X?? Wow!!

What i mean is. Is there a way to make the game as difficult as if there was 8 players. ( on battlenet multiplayer )
The drops would be better i quess. The game harder.

No there is not, aside from having 7 other peopl just sit in town somewhere with mules or something.'

On SP you can use the /players 8 command

Won't help you for NM/Hell, but might help for Normal at least.

If that's true, then the real limit is the number of IP addresses --- most people only get one, and not everyone can do "tricky things" like routing 4 of the D2 connections through a friend's box...

Other than that --- 4 keys wouold suffice if drops are what you're after: the decrease in nodrop almost flatlines above 4 players.
