WASD Controls Don't Work?

I finally got into the game today and realized that even though the settings say WASD for character movement I could not move with those keys. I had to use the numpad arrows which is extremely inconvenient for me. Any way to fix this?

    You should be able to change to WASD in the config in game. The option is called Compact mode and that will allow WASD movement. Although I find WASD combersome for this game and num pad is quite superior. My reason being is you can completely control your character with one hand easily with numpad.

    I prefer using the WASD keys and the mouse for character movement. Just my personal preference I guess...

    This game does not use the mouse. Forget everything you know about MMOs and the way to play them and you have a much better time in FFXI

    The WASD key didn't work for me either even though I had it on the setting... so I'm not sure if it works but it should work or that option should be taken out.

    The compact mode is for Laptops mainly to use WASD simply hit the Number lock on keyboard unless SE made some kinda change the 5 years I was gone.
