    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!!

    Or you could just play single player and type /players 8

    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

    Enter a Mule-Parking spot...

    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.
