I'm trying to figure out how to target ships with manual secondaries? I have the skill selected for the commander but not having much luck figuring it out.

Need to mouse over the ships name and hit "CTRL" and mouse click.

Awesome thank you gentlemen.

 

Also hit CTRL first the arrow is usually in the bottom right hand corner find it first then point and clink . I used to hit CTRL and I could never find the arrow I assumed it would be right there on the screen but sometimes you have to find it it's usually bottom right hand side .

Sometimes it is a bit buggy and I spam click the hostile ship to lock on secondaries and it doesn't...   Just beware...

Thank you.

 

BTW you have a typo in your signature line. It should be "black flag", not "blag flag".

Is there a mod around that makes the "Ctrl + Click" more reliable?

Some ships just seem click-proof, whilst others can be really hard to select if they are in a group or have other ships behind them.

It seems to me that both (auto)aiming and "ctrl-click"ing should be assisted by the enemy ship becoming highlighted as you mouse over it, so that you can do the click or key select with the client knowing exactly which ship you are selecting.

For quite some time I've wished that manual secondaries could be truly manual.  Like as in you push a button and you can aim and fire all secondaries like primary guns.  Especially since the secondaries shoot at the wrong part of the ship once you get into close range.

You have to click it "just right" or it doesn't take.  If you don't get the little icon telling you your secondaries are locked on, try aiming a bit higher above the target ship.  Also be aware that it still takes a second or two before your guns start firing.  It's really annoying when you only have a 3-4 second window before the target ducks behind an island or into smoke.

You have to click on the orange bar with the ships HP number.  That does it every time.
