Same here. Targeting seems almost entirely random!
Clicking on a target with the mouse is VERY difficult. Sometimes it works but usually as soon as you target something, it immediately un-targets itself and then targets something else (something not in weapons range).
Occasionally this causes major problems because e.g. there is a nearly dead ship but I can't target it to finish it off!
Maybe it is the Line Of Sight mechanic is messing up the targeting?
Sometimes I can only shoot a ship if it's within my field of view but that can't be right. Because I can have a ship chasing me from behind and I can shoot it with my rear gun(s) even though I can't "see" it on screen.
