Hyper Ultra Astronautics 0.1.1 beta released

I had decided not to add any new weapons during beta phase, but I did it anyway. Meet smartgun:

It's a similar to the magnetic cannon, but with lower rate of fire and projectiles that steer away from friendly ships and towards enemies.

One problem with the mobile controller apps have been that they do not work in all Wi-Fi setups. Many (especially public) Wi-Fi networks seem to block UDP multicast which prevents the app from finding any games. I haven't been able to fix this so that it would work everywhere, so I've added manual connection as a backup. Now the game shows the listening IP address when a match starts. Updated mobile controller apps allows you to manually enter this address for cases where game listing does not show any games.

This update also adds a "Winnitron compatibility mode". This mode allows Hyper Ultra Astronautics to run in Winnitron arcade cabinets. I will later upload the game to Winnitron network.

Here's full list of change since 0.1.0 beta:

Updated packages are available for download on Itch.io page and the official game page has been updated. Mobile controller application update is waiting for approval on GooglePlay.
