It's not impossible I don't think, somehow my friend has managed to get some Portal Defenders medals on my computer, yet I already had them. I don't know what she did but.. she did it.
Same. Lauren has some PD medals. We had to use the Clear Saved Data button to get the unlocks straightened out, but evidently she got some medals even before that. Maybe this was before the API got updated to prevent a single machine from getting more than one set of medals.
Since this is still in beta (or so I assume), it doesn't pay to get too bent out of shape about it yet. We can test the IP theory by seeing if the computer next to mine has the in games unlocked (they're hooked up through a switch, which is tied to the campus network).
To double check, I'll find out our IPs.
Step 1 - our IPs are off by smidge, just the last number (68 v. 62).
Step 2 - on her laptop the in games are all locked.
So it's looking like it's computer based.
But yeah, complete theories, would be nice to hear a way around this in the future (if there is a way).
Yeah... I dunno if it's worth inviting all the system-abusers and password thieves when all we could do is find another computer that runs the game nicely. I don't really see any other way around it.
