If pressing the supercharger next/previous stage buttons does nothing, it is automatic.

If you mean P-47 or P-38, they are automatic.

Last time I checked, the "turbo" gauge in the P-47 was non-functional. Ignore it.

Or it could be because the plane doesn't have a supercharger.

This mysterious article appeared about a week ago in the Washington Post. When questioned about it, the EiC declined to respond. One truth prevails.

Generally planes either had 'superchargers' which are shaft driven from the engine through the accessory section (rear) or 'turbocharged' in which waste gases drive a turbine, which drives the compressor. The turbo-compound engine, the final development of the piston engine did both. Supercharges often had a gearing selection, high and low blower was a common arrangement and was cockpit selectable. Turbo's usally had a 'wastegate' arrangement to assist in control of the available boost.

Automatic control features were variously implemented to attempt to reduce the workload of the (single) pilot, with (as one would guess)varying results. The USN tended to favor fewer engine monitoring instruments, as an un-needed distraction, the philosophy was 'you were over the water and couldn't do anything about it anyway'.

the Sakae12 engines of the A6M2 had single stage , single speed superchargers. so, no work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
btw, thy cant handle negative G manouvers ! so, in game the should behave like the HurricaneMkI for example !

the Sakae21 of A6M3/5 and Sakae31 of A6M7 had a sinlge stage , two speed supercharger. they have to be shifted manually at around 5000m. there should be a handle close to the throttle quadrant. these engines were able to fly negative G manouvers.

checked it:
the lever is there, below the throttle , also a red one ! it is moving when you are shifting the supercharger.

the A6M2 has it in the 3D modell of the pit, but it is not moving http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

watch the latest b/w picture posted by Kimura. you can see the "knob" of the lever below the throttle.
