Title: Secret of Evermore hacks
Post by: Q on April 15, 2013, 08:56:12 pm
Okay, so the 2 player patch (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/24/) and gameplay balance patch (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/602/) for Secret of Evermore are supposed to be compatible with each other as long as you apply the 2 player patch first. There's also a patch that fixes a bug with the dog's leveling (http://assassin17.home.comcast.net/~assassin17/soe_patches.htm). The creator of the gameplay balance patch has said that this patch is compatible with his patch, but does anyone know what order the patches should be used in?

my dog patch and Ninakoru's balance patch don't alter any of the same bytes.  thus, flipping the order in which they're applied won't change the contents of the final ROM.

that said, a few years ago, he thought that they couldn't coexist, which is why he didn't include this patch of mine while including my other two.  perhaps this was a false alarm.  but i can't rule out the possibility that one patch changes bytes that the other patch *points to*.

so that makes you a beta tester. :P
