I'm having an issue with the keyboard on the game GODS. The game works fine running straight from Windows 98 SE dos prompt. However, in DOS 6.22 it works as long as you don't hold a key. When a key is held for a couple of seconds, it gets "stuck" repeating that key, and the keyboard stops responding. The game continues running, just no response to input. Also, CTRL-ALT-DEL stops functioning. Never had any keyboard issues on the 2 GB+ of other dos games I have installed in DOS 6.22. It also does this with DOS 6.22 booted with the SHIFT key held (default boot, no drivers loaded). Also tried in slow mode (L1 and L2 cache disabled on my P233MMX) with the same results. Any ideas?

that's perhaps an issue while the game is configured to use a joystick, try setup.exe of the game.

Okay, seems to be my Aten KVM causing the issue. I used a PS/2 keyboard direct and had no issue. This is odd, I run a ton of DOS games and this is the only one I've had an issue with. It must have some odd input code or something.
