Summary 00389: cbuster, cbusterj: The tempo of the music played by one of the OKI6295's (#1 I think) speeds up when the flamethrower is used
Description Half way thru the 1st level you encounter a guy in a white heatsuit with a flame thrower. The tempo of the music played by one of the OKI6295's (#1 I think) speeds up when the flamethrower is used, then goes back to normal when the flames are off.

This is a bit tricky to reproduce since the flamethrower is only used when you are almost a 1/2 screen length from the enemy so you have to play "keep away" until he sparks it up.
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Information Jonah1976 / king_krm / Twisty
More noticeable later on (where there are more flamethrower guys to beat)

I just tested the game with MAME v0.214, and looks like the music speedup dindn't disappeared fully but just became less perceptible. See the video here:

This still happens as of 0.241, reopening.
Added a 0.238 stage 5 cbusterj save state, where an army of flamethrower guys appears once you destroy the first barricade.
