Hello all. First off, kudos to everyone involved in creating this great mod. I was using NTW to simulate Revolutionary War battles (using the French as the Americans), and then stumbled upon references to this mod in the Lordz forums. It's perfect.
I haven't played it a lot yet, but I have noticed a couple of small issues. The first is that I don't seem to get any report or smoke from my cannon firing . This is a real bummer, as I do so enjoy that, and it was working in NTW before the AWI mod.
The second (and I haven't done thorough testing) is that every time I create a battle with American Minutemen in it, I get a CTD at the status bar entering the battle. So far this seems to be the only thing that triggers it.
Other than that, this is a great mod, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Looking forward to 1.0.

Thanks so much for the feedback... unfortunately the same issues dont always show up for me, so it is nice to have them caught by SOMEONE at least!
About the cannons, I will give it a look; not sure why that would change since we didn't touch the sounds file for arty or anything, but I will give it a look!
About the CTD, you are the second person to mention this... I haven't been able to replicate it myself, but I will continue to do so. Any information you can give on how you replicated the CTD is appreciated!
Reset the pyros (on AWI & Nap) but no change... Will investigate the various related TXT files. I recall having a similar problem with my first ever mod of a gunpowder Unit (in MTW) but can't recall how I cured it. Till tinker & get back.
Hah!! (Or should that be DOH!!). Fixed the sound & smoke issues for Artillery. Idiot me had installed AWI mod over Nap mod over METW+Viking+Viking patch - but had forgotten that prior to getting Viking had I had installed the pre-viking METW patch. Reinstalled METW (but not METW patch), then Viking, then Viking patch then Nap Mod & my cannnons worked!!! Much rejoicing. Assume if I now install AWI over this (working) Nap mod all will be well (not done that yet 'cos am still revelling in Napoleonic cannon FX for the first time).
