Have you changed a single line of code ?
Have you got another bpl than the one the patch is for ?

If you can answer yes to either of those questions, you will never _ever_
a patch which fits 'perfectly' to your code. I'd suggest you learn how to
program, by making small changes, adding skills, spells, etc.
There's a lot of those on the ftp site. Look at them, see what they do, and
then implement something like them. Same thing goes for the coins.patch;
look at
it, see what it does. But don't do this unless you're familiar with the

In short: (learn how to) read the code, _then_ implement changes.
