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.
