Hmm okay maybe this means that mpxplay without -bp does not
get the right notification that the buffer runs empty, could
be some IRQ or DMA configuration issue. With the -bp mode,
I guess that mpxplay just refills the buffer on every timer
tick, at least 18 times per second, so it stays filled :-).

I would assume it is one because SBPro mode behaves as if
everything works - so it probably sends the data somewhere
but you do not hear anything, typical for a volume setting
or muting problem. Unfortunately I have no idea what else
beyond viaaudio and a normal volume or mixer control tool
you could use. And if SBPro mode is silent in mpxplay then
I guess it is also silent in your DOS games...
