As far as I can recall, you've never been able to combine optimizers with other non-device enhancers. That is, you can combine a weapon optimizer with e.g. a Makayev Weapon Enhancer to get +fast +75% (assuming the weapon is made by Makayev of course) but you can't stack an optimizer with a hexagene booster to get +fast +10%.

Optimizers were changed relatively recently to not be able to be applied to high-level weapons; I think the cutoff is level 6?

After using a Weapon optimizer ROM no other updates can be applied to the weapon. Most ROM's work only up to level 6 devices/weapons/shields. Above that you need either cubes (for the Heisenmachines computer) or specialized devices to enhance/upgrade weapons/shields. some of these stack (like hexagene boosters) or can be combined with other enhancers, some can't. It is part of the game to find out what is or isn't possible.
