Games have full control over the sb mixer, but the fmstrength parameter is internal 'hardware' balance which games don't have access to.
So yes, fmstrength is the balance between pcm and fm when both of the are 100 in the sb mixer, this was adjusted to sound like the real hardware sb16 card.

I used very acurate method to find the balance between various sb card.

That's why I haven't the foggiest idea as to why those two games sound exactly the same even when I configure DOSBox-ECE with fmstrength=1.

Impossible, the game probably uses CD audio, definitely not FM if it stays the same level.

EDIT:
Star Wars: Rebel Assault has nothing to do with FM synth, it's all low quality PCM audio.

Mystery solved, then. Thank you!
