I cannot click on a target in order to select during space battles. The only method by which I seem to be able to target at the moment is by centering the camera on the given target, and pushing the TAB key to select.
Ok, i had this happen to me in a map last night. Everybody else was probably wondering why i wasnt helping fight, lol. Although it hasnt happened again. So dont feal alone, must mean its a bug they will hopefully in time work out in a patch etc.
