Virtual joystick not working

Hey everyone. I have a sidescroller game I’m making - for some reason, the virtual thumbstick will not move my player. It registers that my thumb is on it and moves the joystick, but no character movement. I have everything set up properly, I’m not sure what’s going on. I made a new project with the sidescoller template, went to inputs, set up the thumbstick, and it works on there. I went back and forth checking the settings and everything is exactly the same. Any ideas?
