This looks like the only way to play solo and actually have a shot getting the drops you need.

Funny thing is that I have yet to find an upgrade for my main char from multiboxing LOL. Have only been multiboxing for 3-4 days tho.

It's actually a little challenging keeping everything together. But once you get the hang of it, it can be pretty sweet.


On that note, how do you, keep them all together? Is there a tutorial to learn how to do this?

I'm sure it will start paying off and any duplicate drops of really good gear will no longer be completely wasted while you're soloing. I've had multiple tal helms and firebird helms that ended up being salvaged despite them being really good (just not better than the one I already had), also several non set duplicates that ended up as souls.

I'm honestly jealous that I can't box like this lol.

Does this require a ridiculously powerful comp? I could get access to some of my friends' accts...

I can carry a full party in t3 so... Dang.

You typically run all 4 characters into a wall or corner to sync them up. But you also have to make sure they all have the same movement speed, etc. so they aren't pulling away from each other as you play.

Anytime they get knocked away you have to run them back together which can be difficult sometimes.

It's way more complicated than streamers make it look.

I saw a message that says "broadcast on" is there some software required? I could see how the run speed or other things could effect it...

One thing I am curious about, that I haven't been able to see if you do or not, is hitting tab and switching to each character to check if any legs dropped before moving to the next level.

Or can you hear if one drops on the other characters, it seems like you can hear all of them.

This. i tried it with only two and the hardest thing is keeping them together. All in all, I do better when I just play by myself. Much faster and less headache! Trust me when I say this is not easy at all!

If you have the option turned on, you can hear sound from all screens. I only run two and leave the sound on so I can hear when a leg drops but I can also see both screens at the same time without tabbing (50in screen) so I can see a leg on the mini map easily.

Highly unlikely. It takes one of my 7970's running at 90% to run 4 clients on low settings on a single monitor.

Just hit tab. The leg star is large enough that it is clearly visible even if you run all 4 clients on a single monitor. No need to switch between clients.

It is much harder than it looks. Obviously, ranged classes are easier to keep in sync. Nightmare is by far the worst elite affix to deal with.

What kind of hardware requirements do you need to run 4 game clients on one PC ?

A good video card. Not sure about the processor. I run a 6 core I7 over clocked to 4.4Ghz. I would imagine an I5 or better quad core with hyper threading running at 3.5GHz or better but that is just a guess.
