Summary MESS-specific 06184: shinobi3: Lines at the very left of the background in the final boss battle are badly placed relative to the rest
Description This bug was hard to notice:
When you reach the final boss battle the background changes to various horizontal and vertical lines swinging up and down, giving it the shape of a matrix. If you pay attention to the very left of the background, at the first row, you'll notice that the swinging movement is more extensive than the others. The best way to see it is with a video, so I put a link to my longplay at youtube with the bug, and another video I've found where that first row moves at the correct range. Also tested with the original euro cartridge, but the video capture isn't clear and I discarded it (With the second link you can compare without problems).
Steps To Reproduce You only have to play the entire game and reach the final boss (snif)
Additional Information My longplay with the backgroung bug:
From Min 58:38 --> Final Battle

Another longplay with the correct background:
From Min 49:42 --> Final Battle
Flags Verified with Original

yeah, I believe this is related to my attempt to emulate a 'real hardware bug' but I'm probably doing it incorrectly, it breaks far too many places.
