bi annual withdrawal

how would I adjust firecalc for an every two year withdrawal?
Say the SWR is 4%. Could I withdraw 8% every other year? Does it work out the same?

What's the reason for doing so? I have not come across any calculator or study with these conditions.

I had no need for a withdrawal the first year of retirement, but substantial expenses the second. Just want to test this somehow.

Why not just deduct your excess expenses in year 2 from your investment balance? Or use the screen that allows you to vary your expenses by year?
