My apologies if this has been asked before, I am terrible at searching and finding what I am looking for.
I have auto-fire set to a turret I have in the front, and a turret i have in the back, they are highlighted green, but when i enter combat they don't auto fire...?
Does autofire and cannon rapid fire not work together? I have noticed that when i finally do get it them to autofire (usually halfway through the battle or longer) if i use CRF it immediately stops autofiring again.
Auto fire behaves strangely for me too, I usually set my aft and fore torps on auto fire but they refuse to fire unless I ctrl+space once in combat, and even then they still have trouble firing. I'll line up for a torpedo, it'll wait about 4-6 sec then it fires, and if I try to manually fire a torpedo with auto fire on it sometimes refuses to fire at all. Beams and turrets however usually auto-fire immediately just selecting a target and continue to fire the whole time, which can be more hurtful than helpful at times.. Cannons I have no idea, I don't like my escorts. :p
