We use binary patches for our application - I noticed in the EAP forum a similar question was asked:

I'm finding that our binaries are changing quite a bit, even with a small degree of change (~75%). I would find it useful, if I was able to specify that small changes to the code base resulted in smallish changes to the compiled binary.

Thanks for your time,

Thanks for your post.

I don't think we've put any changes in to specifically assist in this scenario.

Many of the options in Smartassembly will stop you from subsequently post-processing the assembly. At a basic level, a binary diff of both assemblies *after* processing may work okay depending on the options you have selected, but the points raised in the previous post will still stand (in that a small change in the pre-obfuscated code could cause quite a large change to the resulting assembly once processed)
