Well I'm not too sure whats happening but this is my issue.
i have a complex character, whose behaviors controls etc are all on a separate layout so i can simply add it to the layouts easily.
Now, the controls etc work perfectly in any stage when I transition from the original sprites room. and to any other room their on out.
when I crate my character from a spawn in preview layout where i'm spawning the character rather than having it in the layout at start up, none of my functions from the characters event sheet seem to work.
even though if i come from a previous layout it works fine with the spawn system, but not if i run straight with the preview using the spawn rather than transitioning.
Hope i explained that relitivley ok.
