    Duplicate Logins Detected Again and Again and Again...

    Ok, I LOVE the Titan Pack and the patch updates and fixes so much stuff its amazing. Thank you Epic for the Free content and support of UT! Truly, Sincerely and fangrrlishly, Thank You!

    That said...

    When is the freakin "Duplicate Login Detected" going to be addressed and eliminated?

    It's worse than ever. I'd love to be playing, I really would. I'm trying to turn more players onto the game, but I can't stay connected sometimes for more than a few minutes before seeing my least favorite thing in the world. Sometimes it happens 3-5 times in as many minutes!!! Sometimes I can play most of a 10 or 20 min game and then as I'm approaching with a winning Flag Cap, guess what?

    "A DUPLICATE LOGIN HAS BEEN DETECTED"

    Well you know the rest of the drill. Now I have to Logout, then Login again, maneuver my way back to the server browser, find the server i was playing and log back in. Thats if I'm not too frustrated to even try again...

    Now thats me, as diehard a player as you are likely to find. I'm here posting about it cause this really needs to be addressed. How many "casual" or just a little less fanatic players do you think will put up with this more than a few times? Thats right, Not (m)ANY.

    Please please please for the love of Uncle Malcolm, this needs to be addressed. I own several retail copies of the game and it happens with 2 different serials from various IPs and locations and different ISPs. Its not just me.

    Please STOP the madness and at least curtail this from happening or I will be sending you my shrink bill very soon (and that wont be pretty).

    Thank you (again)

    <- DANGER! Do Not Click if you are in treatment for Duplicate Login syndrome.

    Could someone have possibly gotten a hold of your account info, or cd key? I can only imagine how irritating it is, but I've never actually had this problem myself. I'm also not sure what the error message would even be if someone did get a hold of your info for the game. If someone did somehow get a hold of your login information, I'm not even really sure you can change your password or anything.

      I've never heard of this before or seen it reported, so my first guess is that there actually are multiple logins. Aside from the obvious (someone else has your account/CD key) you might want to check:
      a) no other instances of UT are running
      b) you're not running a server using the same login
      c) whether creating and using a new account makes the problem go away

        far as i know the dupe login is your cd key, not just username/pw, and if i only had 1 copy of the game and played mostly at the same time i would think maybe its possible someone hacked my CD key... but i have 2 copies i use of the game which have never left my humble abode and i play at all hours, late nites and daytimes, so unless both my cd keys were hacked and posted on a warez site i doubt thats the problem...

          thanks for the quick reply Myst (i know alot of ppl get dupe login problems, just dont know if its been frequent lately like me)

          the machine i (mainly) play on has just about nothing but UT on it and no, its not 2 instances.

          both my servers have completely unrelated names to my playername.

          i will try playing with a new account later and see what happens. didnt think of that genius that i am

            If you register to steam, the key gets fixed to steam and can't be used by anybody else.

              You haven't been paying attention, because the "duplicate login" problem has been a perennial problem as long as UT3 has existed. My limited experience says it goes in phases, with short periods where the problem occurs very frequently (an entire server being emptied several times in the time it takes for a single game to finish), then a long period where it happens only a few times at irregular intervals.

              Initially I suspected it was some sort of hack because it coincided with sightings of aimbotters, but it's too random for that.

                I had this as well. Like you, I just relogged in and all was fine but it was pretty annoying to be kicked out of the game I was in the middle of playing.

                  very true... I can go for a couple months with few to no incidents and then (like this week) it will happen many times a session over the course of a few days to a week. and like Mr Evil says, it can and does happen to multiple players at a time on the same server, not that i've seen simutaneously, but pretty close or over the course of a game, lotsa players will be dumped during a game repeatedly.

                  my reason for posting about it now is twofold (always wanted to use that word )

                  1. Most players will not report it and Give Up ( terrible if they are newbies ) cause they may give up on the game too. we don't need that happening now, when theres so much GOOD stuff happening for UT3.

                  2. I wanna freakin play a game without getting bumped

                  is there a way someone can check logs or something to see when and how this is happening and why to ppl when there are not really dupe logins?

                  (i will be trying a few options later, but i really dont think its related to my account) thx

                    Is this the login that is causing trouble? Is it happening with both your keys?

                    Send me an email with your GUIDs and I'll see what I can do. Be aware that its the weekend and it's sometimes tough to get a hold of people. I don't need your passwords.

                    Usually when there is a server issue it happens to a lot of people and I get bombarded with PMs. I haven't had that in quite a while.

                      The codes changed for servers as well so thats got to have some issues with the login thingy.

                          This can still happen with a flaky internet connection.

                          I've had it happen multiple times within a few minutes, and I'm fairly confident my CD key has not been jacked.

                          I know it was a flaky internet connection because I was also logged into Ventrilo which I was also disconnected and reconnected to. Actually the sound ventrilo makes when you join/unjoin has become a red herring for me that I'm going to get booted with a 'duplicate login detected' very soon. My internet connection has huge bandwidth but can have crappy latency at times, latency big enough that timeouts occur in some programs.

                              Same problem here now. I created a new account yesterday, since I wasn't able to remember my old credentials (*cough*). Today I'm constantly being bugged by the duplicate login bug while playing online.

                              My ISP connection is fine, never had any latency issues while playing the game and/or other online games. This makes me wonder what is happening here. A lucky pirate that got even more luck on it's keygen? (-;
