Even if there's no shell/system object for windoes (I'm not using win so I
cannot really answer) you can easily create a batch script (a windows shell
script) that saves the output of ipconfig in a file. Then parse the file
with pd and extract the ip from there.

It can even by dynamic in the sense that your shell script can be a sort of
cron (linux scheduled jobs, I think are called sheduled services in win) and
can run a number of times. Thus your game could see the file for the lastest
