Rear animation glitch


#1

I am having issues with rear animations after a character performs a walking action. The characters ignore the command and turn back around. This is happening in a story I published a while ago and everything ran fine then.

I filed a support ticket and they saw nothing wrong in the app previewer. I tried rewriting the codes, giving them different commands then switching back to rear, erasing the lines entirely and rewriting them, nothing.

And it happens with random lines. Other times characters perform the action fine.

This is really frustrating. Is anyone experiencing this or know what to do?

I managed to get it to work. I put the walking animation on the same line as the spot placement, but thank you <3
