Action actuator issue

I have a walkcycle set up to play when I push W. The logic is this:
keyboard > and > action.
I have walk set for the action and the frames set up to play correctly.My problem is that I want to play the animation from the start of the action instead of continuing where it left off. The continue button does absolutely nothing. I have it set to loop stop priority 0 with no other animations. Blender 247.
Edit: There is also a weird bug that makes any vertices connected to a bone that has an IK solver constraint invisible.

it could be a bug with the continue button…
