Hi, im new to beta.  When i select a ship as a target for torps, and it has the halo, but then want to switch to another target, what do i do?  Is there a way to chg or cycle targets?

I believe the default is the X key

 

This will not cycle targets, as Moksie said it will just lock and unlock the target you are currently looking at. Look at a new target and hit X to have the new target selected.

Hover over the target you want to prioritize, of course.

I'm not sure what benefit this gains you, outside of an approximate torpedo path in gray. I have not noticed anything for artillery fire yet.

So, i select a cruiser and im rounding corner but then a BB appears.  What do i do to switch to the BB?  I hit x and go back to guns, aim guns at next target, and then hit x again (for me its C rather than X).  I am already doing this but its very cumbersum and i thought there was something easier.

I too was needing that answer. Another question too i have is. "How do you HIGHLIGHT" an enemy ship for your allies to pound. I know there is a key you need to assign, which i have, but then, how do you activate it. I hit that key, but nothing happens. Is there a magic button or combination I have to hit?

The 'highlight' an enemy ship by default is not mapped. You will have to go into your settings and map it to a key of your choosing. As for the targeting, If you have a CA targeted, then a BB appears and you want to shoot him instead, then as Red_Raven said all you have to do is look at the BB and then hit X only once to lock the BB as a target. No need to unlock the previous target first.

Another tip...if you're in a ship with secondaries, use CTRL+left click to lock your secondaries on a target.  That can be a ship, or even aircraft (which comes in handy for AA cruisers).

Targetting is the worst aspect of this game, as far as I am concerned, especially trying to change targets.  Instead of something simple, like TAB to the next nearest target, the process of changing targets is too cumbersome, especially in the 'heat of battle.'
