    Another MPXPlay thread....

    Hey People...

    I'm having issues with MPXPlay. [EDIT] Not any more!!! See last post[/EDIT]

    Okay, MPXPlay works fine when I'm in Win98 and I open a dos box. It loads and plays perfectly.

    If I either Restart in DOS Mode, or boot directly to Command Prompt, MPXPlay freezes as soon as I try to play an MP3.

    I'm using a Celeron 533 with a PCChips (ElCheapo) all-in-one mobo with onboard CMedia 6-Channel sound (only using front-out). I've got a DOS Driver for the sound card (I think). The driver loads fine and the mixer seems to work.

    Another thing I noticed, I seem to get conflicting reports as to what IRQ and settings to use. BIOS says something about Sound installed on IRQ 9, but I think MPXPlay -sct (when ran from Dos Window, the only place it plays properly) says IRQ 5.

    Is there any important info I'm missing or something I've overlooked? What does Windows have that proper DOS doesn't?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kris

    It's set to 5 from the line:
    SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 T4

    But, for some reason it says something about IRQ A in the Mixer program, and "MPXPLAY -sct" doesn't find a sound card. MPXPlay will still load, but as soon as I try to play a song, it just keeps repeating the first quarter of a second of the song, and freezes up. It sounds like a conflict of some sort, but I can't figure out how to get the proper settings. Is there a program I can run that will display the proper settings?

    TIA again,

    Kris
