I'm not sure if this is by design or a bug in my system, but I can run multiple instances of OpenRA. This does include starting matches...

If your competitor isn't paying attention to IPs, I suppose you could cheat via playing on both sides....

This has been true since the last release. One Soscared stream I played a game against myself. Cool

Checking IPs is pretty easy and they are recorded in replays so if someone did cheat it would be pretty easy to track down.

Semi-related I looked at a replay to see if the IP's showed up and interestingly my IP always matched whoever was admin. Why is that?

Pretty sure this has been possible for as long as I have played OpenRA and if you install another version, as long as it doesnt overwrite the folder you can open 2 different versions.

Also its just as easy to use a VPN on another computer and sit in the lobby without anyone knowing better so cheating is a lot easier than you think
