Hm, I don't know...

is there a mod where ip-tracking for two accounts is active? means -> one IP logs on to one acc and then minutes after into another ... any mod yet?

Just have had a discussion of tracking multi accounters here.

The closest thing to this that I am aware of is the Bioalt module provided in the core_distribution.

But that means you have to go through the list and look for them.  Could be modified to notifiy admin when someone does that.  I could also be persueded to add it to the creation addon module I have.

Well, I'll see what I can do, the IPs are saved and there should be some little mod capable of tracking same ips... and having a counter for them. would run on every login if theres a hook.

It would be really nice if there was an admin mod that enabled this sort of tracking easily.  As is, I have BioAlt installed purely for the purpose of trying to track down who has alt chars, and then I have to write those names down, go to the grotto, search for each user, and ctrl-f through the log of each user to see if there are any shady transferring / pvping / bounties being used between the alt chars.

Obviously, that is not a convenient way to track down users who abuse the ability to have multiple characters by simply having multiple email addresses.

I'd hug and kiss anyone who was able to come up with a nice module that -- at the least -- displays users with the same or similar IP / IDs and optionally displays snippets of their logs which have anything to do with PvP, bank transfers, or bounties.

Nice in theory, difficult in execution.  IP addresses and user IDs are constantly changing and only catch a few of those using multiple accounts.  Such comparisons would not be effective against anyone intent on having multiple accounts and knowing how to get around the detection methods.

Hmm... One could use a client which checks, if a certain file exists on a specific hard drive location. If the name was hardcoded and you checked against the modification date of the file, it would become hard for multiaccounters and very inconvenient for the other 99% Wink (Also you might limit yourself to just windows users (or *NIX or Mac...)

You'll never really be able to catch people who are dead-set on using any and all means to multi-account but I think that showing accounts with matching IPs / IDs along with tracking consistent bank transfers / pvp-gold-"transfers" would go a long ways in stopping those who casually do so.  Those casual cheaters are people who likely would stop playing or stop being shady when they are caught doign so and realize that someone is watching.
