Wierd Movement question

I have this strange problem that when I posses a different player character on event begin play, The character movement speed is next to 0 (it’s set at default 600). To top it off, none of the controls I set for that character responds. It does with the demo level, but not this new level I made. Under world settings, even with a dummy game mode with no rules in it is set, same problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Is the player controller connected to your character?

Yes, the controller possesses the character at begin play
