HELP!! Start Animation playing from 90 rather than 0

I am using the third person character template and the animation starter pack. I have created a couple of blendspaces but when I start the game, the charter idle is actually running to the right i.e. at 90 rather than 0. I have tried various setups in the animation BP to try solve this but nothing seems to work. Is anybody else experiencing these issues? ScaleAnimations_tests_01.jpg

set the Parameters to start at absolute values.
