Montage Play not playing

Hey Ue community,

I do not know why but montage play is not working on my AI character. I have the AnimBP setup just like my player character is however for some reason it only plays its default idle state instead but nothing else. any ideas?

UPDATE: so it seems to want to attempt to play seeing as every single time Montage play is called to play a new montage the AI twitches.

UPDATE: apparently I am just a little slow. The animation I tried intially was over too quickly and needed a setup animation. (sigh) gotta love UE4
