The point being that not everyone owns a macro capable keyboard or has the knowledge to create macros.

Personally I have been using AutoHotKey to macro the weapons firing.. however just because I have a solution does not mean I dont or wont support the need for NATIVE Auto Fire.

Its something the game needs, its a no brainer and the ONLY reason I can think for the devs to not include it is because they had intentions of moving STO to the XBOX 360 and wanted the game to "feel more involved" on the console by having the A Button fire all energy weapons, X fire torpedoes, etc.. Auto Fire on the console would have made the game feel like it plays itself.

However on a PC, NOT having Auto Fire is just wrong.
