Summary0008729: Players sometimes are unable to log into their account

Some players at times can not log in to their accounts. Trying to log in gives out the error - 'Account already in use'. Player list (Tab) shows a player using that account with the same nick and country of the account owner with ping 0. Tracking down that player using /whois leads to the original account owner.

Additional Information

Kicking out the player (Ping 0) allows the original owner to log in and fixes the problem temporarily until someone else faces this problem.

TagsNo tags attached.

It seems the player elements are not properly destroyed when they disconnect under some exotic condition. It happens to us since we updated the server to 1.4.1. I remember there was a similar issue with some 1.3 version.

Probably related to "CD36: Join Flood" which I myself got on my server after leaving the game with ALT+F4 and coming back in 2 hours. Looks like the element or dead connection stayed there which lead to problems.

Does this still happen for you after r7028?

checking getNetworkStats(player) to see if it's false fixes the issue. The code below will help with that.

function checkPlayerNetwork()
for k,v in ipairs(getElementsByType("player")) do
if not getNetworkStats(player) then
outputServerLog("[PNetwork] Player's connection's dead. Kicking...")
