    Advice needed for setting up four player tournament on two computers

    Hey all,

    New to PC2. I have two PC's each with their own Steam account and copy of PC2. I have three friends who are going to come over for a night of beer, BBQ and racing.

    I've read about the Online Championship feature, but don't think I can use it because only two of the four will be racing at any given time.

    Anyone have any advice on how to format a tournament for a couple of hours of racing?

    Thanks!

    -Paul

    Yes. Pretty sure I can. However, how would I set up the tournament? I don't think I can use the Championship tournament feature because I have to invite racers from my friends list. Since I only have two accounts but four players, I'm not sure how to set up alittle mini tournament.

    My best advice would be to do 1v1s.


    Get a sheet of paper and write everyone's name on it.Whenever someone wins a race put a mark next to their name.The person with the most marks wins.

    Lol! Yeah... I pretty much think I'll have to go "old-school" on this as you suggest. I was hoping there was a way with the Online Championship to have the computer keep track.... but doesn't look like it.
