Version 0.1 is ready. It works pretty well for two players but i haven’t been able to test it for more players.
There are still many things that i wish to implement/improve. Please report any errors you might find. I will try to fix them as soon as possible, but i am very busy with school at the moment.

How to host online:

You need to setup port forwarding for the port you choose in the host menu.
If you don’t know what this means or how to do it, check out http://portforward.com/.

Things that i would like to include in the next version:

* UPNP support (automatic portforwarding).
* Wifi options. Access point discovery + setup.
* Improved error reporting.

Bugs:

* If you join a game in progress, the level might not be rendered during the first round.
* Tank physics sometimes bugs.
* Sometimes stats (scores,cash,kills,deaths) bugs.
