But in all seriousness, what are you even saying? I would like to help answer your question but as is it makes no coherent sense, lol.
When playing the game (any level) there is a specific sound (of bells twinkling) which should or would indicate to something - perhaps that's not the case but that wouldn't make any sense.
So my question is: if it does indicate to something, then what is it?
hmm, it's definitely been too long since I've played the original NG on xbox admittedly, but I don't recall such a sound. Are you perhaps referring to the Kunai scrolls that Ayane sends you throughout the game? Or perhaps the noise made during the opening chapter screen (that kinda sword slashing sound?)
I dunno what bells and whistles could signify in this game... if you can somehow further elaborate or provide evidence then that should surely help. Also sorry for kinda being an ass in that last post, I just find way too many people on forums not making sense and it drives me mad sometimes, lol.

You are likely referring to the clink that is made when Ryu takes up the "ready" stance with the Dragon Sword (DS) in hand. This sound is created by the two armlets he wears upon his wrists striking each other. After executing any move, if you let Ryu stand still (without holding L to block), you will hear the singular sound precisely as he moves into the position.
If you use the DS a lot then you will hear this constantly, not just at points where there is loot to be found. At least I don't think there is any sound cue to alert the player to any hidden goodies... it's been a long while since I played me some NGO so I may be mistaken here.
