So I just bought this gun, and know practically nothing about paintball guns. I know it is supposed to be a semi-automatic , however after I shoot I have to cock it again. Any help appreciated.

Also, I turned up the pressure a bit (although it was in the green zone already)and it started to shoot better, although it shot more than one ball at once occasionally, any more advice?

Spyder's require a decently high operating pressure in an unmodified state (at least 650psi I reckon)
Disregard what the gauge reads (I'd even recommend removing it and replacing it with a 1/8 NPT plug) and crank up the pressure until it shoots right
You can mess with different spring weights for the valve and hammer too if you feel so inclined

probably whats happened is your spring has gotten weak over time and increasing the pressure will compensate for that, it will work for now but eventually increasing the pressure will not work for reasons i dont care to go into and you will just have to replace the spring
