tales_1_beta3.bps + 123F = Success!
I went ahead and tried Preset ID 123F (similar to 1016, only S-DD1 enabling ID that doesn't C7) since it might be more convenient than setting the Extra Bytes
It seemed to work perfectly fine, I saw nothing different compared to 0000.
The freeze when leaving Chester's house is now fixed as well!
I'm assuming the other ExHiROM -> S-DD1 games will also work perfectly fine with 123F, except for Chronosplit's, that one requires 110B.
Just something I thought I would mention for simplicity's sake, only having to change Preset ID and not the Extra Bytes
value.Kirby 3 (vanilla) + 0000 + 06
Kirby 3 (vanilla) + 0000 + 0B
Same as Arkiokin.
Both were able to beat all stages of the final boss and completely finish the game.
06 = Lots of game slowdown.
0B = Surprisingly no sound slowdown during final boss! I did not use -no-lowlatency
.firemen1a.ips + 0000 = Almost perfect!
The stage 4 rain room now works perfectly normally!
The top line of the screen and character portrait are no longer cut off!
I did notice a couple other issues though.
The top line of the character portrait will now stay on the screen and won't go away.
Sometimes it goes away though, sometimes it sticks around.

The top horizontal line of the map will now repeatedly flicker on and off.
Doesn't happen all of the time, but MOST of the time.

Oh yeah, the Canoe save state for Firemen is from the vanilla (NTSC) ROM.
I will upload a new Canoe save state for use with the firemen1a patch.
Not sure if it will be compatible with future Firemen patches though.
Canoe Suspend Point (firemen1a):This suspend point was created BEFORE ever stepping into the rain room.
Will test out firemen1b patch.firemen1b.ips + 0000 = Success!
The top line of the character portrait now correctly goes away!
The top line flickering of the map is now gone!
Everything appears to be working correctly now!
Another awesome job Sluffy!
