010 has large enough cache to cause problems with SMC too! And it is much more useful to disable the instruction cache once instead of flushing the cache each time SMC has been used on such CPU's!

Can you be a bit more specific? What does "does not work" mean, does the game crash or is it freezing?

Better approach would be to change the subq.l #1 instruction to tst.l, that way you only have to change 1 byte and it's also easily possible to toggle that option on or off. :)
