Stupid question, but how do you use them with the commander upgrade.  I cannot get them to fire.  I tried holding down control and left clicking.  I tried pushing control then left clicking.  What am i missing to make this work?

Hold down ctrl while left clicking. They'll fire when in range provided they're not destroyed.

Did you click on the big circle just above the selected enemy ship while you did this?

I sometimes miss lick the hull instead of that upper icon on an enemy ship when using my Manual Secondaries.

I'm still missing something.  When i hold control down, It freezes my sights and i don't see a big circle.  I cannot move them in binocular mode.  Thanks for the help.

Ctrl-Left Click on the ship you're targeting. A icon should appear above it (I think it's a white A). Clicking on the ship won't always work, click on the name above it. With the skill, secondaries only fire when a target is selected, and and only at the selected target. Obviously it has to be in range. Also, the secondaries (unlike the AAA) have limited arcs of fire. So if the target is at a steep angle ahead or astern, the secondaries may not have the angle to fire.

Ctrl brings up the cursor. Sometimes it does freeze the game the first time I hit it for a few seconds (once it actually crashed it). The circle is the one that shows what ship you're aiming at with the main battery (the crosshair). Not going to be there if you're targeting a different ship with the secondaries.

The sights freezing (IE, you can't look around with the mouse) when you hold down CTRL is normal. You should get a mouse cursor when you do.

Click on the target ship while holding down CTRL to designate it. It should show an 'A' icon above the ship when it's designated. When you are within secondary range your secondaries will open fire.

Lol, i figured it out.  I was not able to target in binocular mode, but when i pulled back on the zoom, i got the curser, and could direct my secondaries to a target.  Again, thanks for the help guys.

I am!

 

And I fire only my own secondaries, and no one else's, thank you. And no one fires mine but me.

 

What I do with my own secondaries in my own battles is nobody's business but mine. You guys shouldn't even be asking. This entire thread is out of line!!

 

(Harrumph!)

Even if they're turned off, once you manually select a target, they should automatically become active. At least that's how it works when manually targeting aircraft.

You can turn that on or off in the settings.
