Cloth sim for leaf animation issues

Hi there, I am currently working on a title animation and want some leaves blowing across the scene. I was able to find this tutoral its all was all framiliar to me so I set out on it.

Materials gave me no trouble at all, the physics set up was easy until I added either wind or cloth. When I add either of those blender seems to forget all the settings in the physics panel as far as rotation goes. and when I playback the animation my planes do nothing! They just sit there. I add wind and they start to flap in the breeze but don’t actually move. I have subdivided, not subdivided, baked, changed to a different version of blender(i was 2.59 and 2.60) I played around with some stuff for a while but none of it worked so anybody got any ideas?
