You are typing it in the chat dialog right? If you don't type it correctly you should at least see a chat message.

You have also updated to the latest version?

If you are playing version 1.11 it's /players8 with no space.

Welcome to the forums. :wave:

Re: /P8 not working?

I just started playing diablo 2 with eastern sun and i cant get /players8 or /players 8 to work. Clicking enter, writing in either of the above, the console says: Players set to 8, but nothing really happens.

The mobs i kill currently gives the same experience no matter what. ES is suppose to support up to 16 /players but couldnt get that to work.

Is there something you need to do to get the command to actually "activate"?

Well, only monsters that spawn after you type in the command are actually modified (the game spawns monsters about 2 screens away from you at a time).

The /players commands did not work in one of the older versions, but I can't remember which one(s) right now.

For help with Eastern Sun specifically, I suggest you visit the phrozenkeep forums. There's an entire ES forum there.

Do you get the response "Players set to 8" after you type in the command? If not then it didn't take effect.

Yes it says Players set to 8. But i really cant see any difference between players1-8, monsters and experience are the same?

Then it's activated. You may simply be too overpowered to notice as monsters HP goes up along with the experience you gain and the number of items that drop. Do you at least see more items falling?

It affects only those monsters which haven't been generated so far. For example, if you stand next to Baal and you type /players 8, he won't change, but if you do it before entering the Worldstone Chamber, he will become the 8 player version.

I've noticed this too on some occasions in Single Player with 1.12 patch. /players 8 in chat and I see the message "Players set to 8" in the upper left of the screen. But there is no difference in number of mobs or difficulty. Turn it on in town, go through teleporter, turn it on again, fight a bit and turn it on some more. Still no joy.

Then, other times it seems to work.

Re: /P8 not working?

I have the same problem. I played tcp/ip game with a friend and we're both using 1.11b version. In Act II we used /players 8 command and got "Players set to 8" in the upper left corner. But nothing changes!!! We entered the command immediately when we started the game, so there were no already spawned monsters. We tried it a couple more times and eventually gave up.

We played with players 8 command on versions 1.09 and earlier, and it always worked. I read somewhere that the players 8 command doesn't work on versions after 1.09. Does someone knows anything about this? Is it true?

Re: /P8 not working?

slightly related question: does anyone know, if you put /players 8 on, then save&exit, then rejoin, is it still on? Because it seems to be with me, i'm just not 100% sure.
