amongst others, it states:

Code: Select all

IKBD keyboard, mouse and joystick driver:
   207    Available if _MCH cookie is ST, Mega ST, STE, Mega STE, TT or Falcon.


That might be the problem when running dosbox on firebee, or aranym, Key releases can only be handled by the ikbd driver. But _MCH is not one of the values above (is that set at all on Firebee?). Aranym sets the _MCH cookie to 0x50000 by default, but you can override it in the config file. Maybe setting it to 0x30000 (to indicate a Falcon), and forcing the use of the IKBD driver by setting the environment variable, will help.
