hey just curious, if I disable sounds effects from the mod and run the General Andy's Musket Sounds submod will that cause me to have to reinstall the mod everytime I close out my ETW and the try to start it up again? Version 2.0 with the 2019 update gave me that issue, its a minor issue but still was annoying. other than that I love the mod! please don't think I was complaining lol far from it this is one of the best mods ive ever played!!

Rename it to TAR_something.pack (or even use TAR_Sounds.pack, replacing the original) and it will move with the other TAR files, see the included modding guide under modding and diagnostics.
