    1 Diablo2 + 4 PC = Possible ?

    Goodday!

    I have a small lan at home! ( 3PC + 1 Laptop )

    Inviting some friends over this weekend so i decided to install some Lan game to entertain them!

    They ask for "Diablo 2" so i am going to buy it later , but some of them told me that if i want to install it on all the 4 PC, i have to but all 4 sets of "Diablo 2".

    Is that true?

    i Dont really wish to buy that 4 sets of Diablo 2, cause i am really tight on budget?

    Hmm.. Is there any other alternative to solve this Diablo2 Problem!

    Thankyou.

    Generally, licenses are given for one install on one computer (for gaming purposes) so legally, I would have to say no. I don't know if Diablo has a method to check and see if the other copies are using the same key or not though.

    Is Diablo 2 multi-player? If it is, it might not work.

    Pfffft, damn... of course its multi-player.

    Anyways... yes there is various authentication when playing (online), everything is mainly done through CD-keys. Lets say if one guy has just installed a copy, well you'll find that often this person will not be able to play online due to some other guy or maybe five or six other peaple attempting to log on at the same time with the same registrations & criterias. Similiar things may apply to LAN. But if your just bringing peaple over I don't see why you couldn't talk one or two of these guys into bringing in their disks.
