    Hi All! Begining SP!

    Hi all!

    I've been palying in bnet until this time but i've encountered so many weirdos that i am becoming fed up!

    So i am planning on start SP, but i have some doubts regarding a couple of things:

    1- Is the economy of the game (number/quality of items generated) afected by playing SP or is the same as Bnet MP?

    2- If i want to join an open MP game how do i do that?

    Thanks for the help, and i hope i will be more happy playing SP!

    1. The number of items that drop from normal monsters (non-bosses) and containers/chests depends on the number of players in the game. In SP, you can simulate up to 8 players with the /players x command, where x = 1-8. The quality (non-magical, magical, rare, unique, etc) of the items depends only on the amount of Magic Find you are wearing. You can get all ladder-only items in SP (except the unique small charm, since Diablo Clone can´t spawn) and all the ladder-only cube recipes work in SP.

    2. Look in the stickied MP thread.


    EDIT: Oops, I forgot my manners. Welcome to the forum! :howdy:

    concerning connecting to other games in multiplayer, in Diablo, go to the "other" multiplayer tab, and then use the IP address function. All us SP post games in the Multiplayer thread, so go to the last page there, and copy/paste the numbers in. (sorry if this is too basic, but there are people of all levels that may read this.)

    If you want to host a game and don't know your ip address, do a google search for IP address and the first link should tell you yours (works for me all the time). Then just post your IP in the Weekly MP thread, and people will hopefully join. Good luck :)

    Also, if your new to SP, you may want to check out ATMA - a big help in mueling - almost everyone uses it here.

    Nice to see a new face too :drink: :buddies:

    The economy is fairly healthy here in fact its better then Bnet. Except for the occasional duped rune the items are ligit. As for quantity of items there are a few players here that have complete -1 grails.

    Welcome to the SPF, hope you enjoy your stay :)

    I think the economy is based mostly on individual need, and also like someone already said, I think all of the items people trade are legit. Also people are pretty generous, so you'll find alot of lower level stuff is just given away :)

    if you don´t have a firewall/router then you should be able to host MP games

    go to "other multiplayer game" - - > " tcp/ip" - ->"host or join depending on what you want"

    to get your "real" ip adress that people can join up with you, you have to go to www.whatsmyip.com and use that IP

    have fun and hope to se u in MP games!! :)

    To join our Mp games:

    Other multiplayer --> tcp/ip game --> join game --> enter the IP of host computer and press enter --> select your character --> wait a moment and you are there

    And of course welcome to SPF! :howdy:

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    Just got one a couple more questions:

    1- Is the spirit of SP, to u guys, playing more "seriously" instead of that frenzy rush for lvl up fast seen in Bnet (I've seen guys lvl 12,14 doing act 4 and 5, wich his pretty ridiculous)?
    I personally like to play by fun doing all quests myself ad exploring most of the maps!

    2- Is the speed of, let's say a 8 player game, more slow or equal to bnet?

    Thanks All.

    Welcome to the SPF...this is a lot different than the constant barrage of flaming and horrible writing you'll find on certain other sites. The SPF is a great place to be. Have fun. :thumbsup:

    Well we play more "seriously", we very seldom rush (and it is quite difficult alone too :D). I don't do full clears always, but I kill hell Baal on lvl 80+, which is just normal here

    Im not sure what do you mean with your 2nd question, but it is slower, because you have to do all killing yourself and monsters are as tough

    Welcome to the SPF, fishman! :wave: You'll find that there is no real economy here as everything is based on usefulness and want. For MP games, play TCP/IP or passworded games on open battle.net - though never public games on open. Anyway, good luck magic finding and happy questing!

    By that question i mean the speed of the game itself, since it is not hosted by bnet servers... If i host a game and my conection insn't great wouldn't
    all of the 7 players who join my game be all laggy?

    Heya, and welcome to the SPF :howdy:

    To answer your last question, I got a 512/128 connection, and I have been able to host for 6 people without much lag...it of course also depends on what connecion the people that joins has. Just try and host some games, and see if it's good. :)

    I usually play solo but occasionaly i like to play a 8 plyr party and kick some monster butt. If the party is made of decent game/likers type, then i assist to the true power of different chars combining to make a very fun play style.

    To play in a bnet password game (mores speed, theorectly) i cannot use my sp char (i think). So if i decide to create a mp game for use with my sp char then i would have to creat it by tcp/ip, right?
