Is there the ability to move your toon forward by holding down both mouse buttons, like in traditional MMO's.

Or at least can you map it that way.

Not in the beta. WASD to move, IJKL for camera or right click and hold your mouse to move the camera.

No clue if release will have it.

WASD....I have not heard that term in years, since my commodore 64.

I guess the $200.00 mouse has not hit Japan yet, they still use the old fashioned keyboard,Guess I will have to dust mine off, have not really used it much since voice functionality came out in the late 80's.... I wonder if Japan still has disco? :P

I mean like:

Eq
Eq2
Age of Conan
World of Warcraft
Ultima Online
Vanguard
Dark Age of Camelot
Warhammer
etc.

All the other games that have been made in the past...this is my first time playing an FF game, so was wondering if it was like all the other games as far as movement. I have not used WASD since my commadore years so will be very rusty...

The Keymap for keyboard is on the Beta page, I wish I could post it here but I don't know how to. I saved it as a word file. You can use the numpad like you did in XI or use WASD

IIRC it's like the 4th option on the beta main page

Weird I used WASD in many of those games. Most had the option of arrow keys or WASD.

Also Xav not everyone likes those mice with 50 buttons on them lol. I use a classic mouse with two clickers and a scroll wheel, I like the keyboard it's set up perfectly.

IJKL camera controls are terrible. I don't understand why they would ever change that from the arrow keys. Whoever made that decision at SE needs a pink slip.

It works for me and keeps my hands close to the home row keys for typing. Also, the arrow keys are used for menu navigation. There was something mentioned on the beta site about moving the camera keys to the arrows but then what would be used for menu navigation? Key remapping would take a lot of griping away.

There is one for first person view but not much really changes.
