I'm playing on a new laptop and I can't get the names to stay on above the ships in game. I know alt shows them, but how do you get them to stay on?

Go to settings, and under the General tab there is an option that reads "Alternate battle interface" or something similar, and set that to full or adaptive.

Had this problem myself after a complete reinstall on the weekend. Playing with the default interface is so horrible I can't believe it's even a thing.

At any time during a match you can press the <Alt> key and the names will be displayed above the icons until the key is released. It is basically temporary access to the Alternate Interface described above.

Best of both worlds. The info can be seen if you need to check something, without the added clutter being there the whole time.

It is astonishing that the default is off. People don't know what they don't know... an older friend of mine played well over 1000 battles not knowing it was even a thing. No wonder people quit in frustration by tier V.

Also another handy thingy in the control section of the settings tick the potential damage an spotting damage counter to see it up by the ribbons while battling
