    Question How to recognize returning visitors not using cookies?

    My coder is working for me on a new game script (mainly coded in php/ajax and javascript).
    This is the problem: i do not want people can cheat the game so i need to identify and recognize each single visitor in unique way. Normal cookies are not a solution since they can be easily deleted.

    What could i to recognize an user in a stealth way so he cannot easily delete the cookies and play multiple times to my game?

    I cannot register the ip in the database because many ISP in my country uses the same ip for multiple users so i would block many users if i ban an ip.

    Is there a way to install a stealth cookie not easy to be deleted or something like that?

    Maybe flash cookies or java cookies??

    Any idea?

    IMO nothing should be installed 'by stealth' on a computer - and certainly nothing via using a browser!
