Freezes for me as well using the ipf and 3.3.0.
Even funnier is if you try and jump he flies up and disappears into space!

Shinobi (1989)(Sega)(US)[2354] works for me. A500 ks1.2 ce.

Shinobi (1989)(Virgin)[1054] doesn't work as Belgarath mentioned.

Im guessing its copy protection issues, Shinobi was a valiant attempt back in the day.

IPF at least works on 2.5.1 (2012.12.22). Does not work on 2.8.0 (2014.05.05) same bugs already described.

It was bug that was fixed long time ago (0.8.2x!) and then broken again later..

Reset must not clear VPOSR LOF bit, I think game has PAL check and it checks if very last PAL line (312) exists. Game executes RESET instruction, I guess it tries to confuse freezer cartridges.
