Used to be able to shift right click on the weapons to make them turn green to select autofire...doesn't seem to work anymore...nor does /defaultautoattack 1 work. 2 of my weapons are green the rest aren't.
All credit goes to endafresh, and many many thanks.
--Go to Sector Space.
--Hit Escape, go to Options and then Rearrange HUD, find the panel that says 'Ship Weapons', make sure it isn't orange/hidden, then hit Escape again.
--Right click the weapons on that panel and your AutoFire will be working again, this is a workaround that can be used in the meantime.
I spent hours looking for a solution. I tried the "Set tray to 1" and the "autoattack settings", and neither worked. This worked the first try.
