Summary 06514: lifefrce: Missing "pick it up for" speech
Description During the power-on self-test, the game says "pick it up for". This should be heard during the game the first time the player encounters a power-up. For example, at the start of the game, after you destroy the first 5 spinning enemy, a MULTIPLE power-up appears. The game should say, "Pick it up for MULTIPLE", when the power-up appears. Instead, it just says "MULTIPLE", which is repeated again after the power-up is picked up.
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Information I've been aware of this bug for awhile, but didn't want to submit a big report without some proof. The audio in these 2 YouTube videos is somewhat difficult to hear, but otherwise the sound is accurate.

The speech sounds as it should in the parent rom "salamand."

this sounds like there are just different game revisions to be honest, especially if it sounds right in one game version and wrong in another.

I doubt it's an emulation bug, just the videos picture a version that isn't emulated.
