Otherwise I'll have to use a ROM that's already been expanded as the rombase and add instructions for how to do that part yourselves, and I'm hoping that won't be necessary. It forces too much onto the testers. I will try Lunar IPS when I get a chance.
A-Ptch does not re-size to 32mb but you can get people to do this instead:

Open the clean rom in XSE, go tools, then 'Rom re-sizer'.
Expand the rom to 32mb and then use A-Ptch to apply the patch.
It should work just fine then.
