    Single Player # of player settings

    Hey, I have a noob question. How do I change what the player settings on single player are. Ex. I'm playing single player as it were a difficulty of eight other players in the game. How i change it to eight, and any other difficulty. Also, what do you think is the best setting for a bowazon that I'm gonna make should play on. should I keep it at one setting, or should I change it throughout the game?

    You type in "/players 8" (without the quotes), to set it as if there were 8 players in the game.

    In 1.10 the max you can set is 8 players. In 1.08 you could set more. I don't remember which the limit was in 1.09. Also, in 1.10 you will actually see a confirmation message in the message window if you do it successfully.

    And though it should be obvious, the lower limit is the actual number of players if you use this in a TCP/IP game.

    Do you get more experience with a higher player setting on?

    Yes. And enemies will be proportunately more difficult (more HP) and the chance of a "no drop" will be appropriately lowered.

    To be exact: you get +50% of base monster experience with every additional player in the game. So, you recive 150% in /player 2 mode, 200% in /players 3 mode. In /players 8 game you receive 450% (4.5 times more than in /players 1) experience.
    Remember, that hit points scale this way:+100% base with every player in the game (in /players 8 monsters have 8 times more life).

    I usually leave it at /players 8 all the time, but in some areas that can get really hard. If you change it, it works for any monsters that have not yet spawned. So, if you know you're going to an area where you usually have trouble, set it lower before you get there.

    You can set it down to /players 3 to guarantee that you won't get a 'no drop', and that is not a very hard setting to play at.

    Single player only because in multiplayer other people could still join passworded games.

    Actually in 1.09b you could set players up to a max of 256.

    Not correct. It can be used in single player or in TCP/IP multiplayer games. In TCP/IP the command can only be entered by the hosting player. It cannot be used in open or closed Battle.Net games, because on Battle.net none of the players controls the server and this sort of game setting applies directly to the server.

    As I said above, the minimum setting in a TCP/IP game is the actual number of players - you can't have 2 players in the game and get monsters as weak as if there were only 1. But my friend and I usually pplay 2-player over TCP/IP with /players 8 set.
