Animation does not effect character

I was developing my own animation BP to use in a network game and I could not get it to effect the character. I then created a new 3rd person BP template game, loaded in the AnimStarterPack (free from Marketplace), replaced the character animation with the UE4ASP_HeroTPP_AnimBlueprint and can’t get the animation to effect the character. Not sure what I need to do. Should be easy for someone else to verify if it works for them. Do I need to retarget? I thought that my custom animBP might have an error causing it to not work or that I was applying it incorrectly in a network setting but now I can’t get this basic test to work. Anyone have an idea? If I can find out why the simple 3rd person test doesn’t work that might help me with my custom BP.
