Also, I don't think the game was ever released in English.
Good luck!
I am not sure. you should ask a spanish speaking person to test the whdload version with the four files.

But I doubt that it is complete (the sizes of the 4 files are similar to those of the FR & GE versions which have 7 TOT files...)

As SyX said, it's not necessary to speak Spanish fluently to play and complete the game. The showstopper consists in the action sequences : Defeat the Indians, go a little further in the game, then another action sequence occurs (to fight the bandit), which is even more unfair and tedious. That's what I just did with the DOS version I uploaded, dialogues were in Spanish all the way, and it's already half of the game through (step 22 out of 37).
I understand some of your contributions were made in cooperation with dlfrsilver who happens to be a fan of the CPC. Well, as with many CPC games, you should be aware of that fact that it's possible to insert pokes. Can the pokes from the CPC (infinite strength or infinite bullets) be translated into cheats for a 16-bit port of said game ?
With infinite strength (or less hits required for a given enemy), I can guarantee I can complete any version of the game. Of course, I can't be 100% sure, but I am 99% positive any version can be completed including the Spanish version, action sequences aside.

So I played the Spanish CPC version (emulator used : CaPriCe Forever) and it seems the end is missing indeed. After Step 26, there is no message displayed (step 27 : "Read the message"). Instead, the game starts all over again. So, as I suggested, instead of a full Spanish version, maybe you could use the French files as a substitute for the three missing files to be able to end the game nonetheless. The fact that it's spread on 2 disks doesn't change the fact that it's missing those TOT files.
For the record, after 10 hits one wins an action sequence, versus 15 hits for the 16-bit versions. The CPC versions action sequences are easier to achieve because the game runs at a much slower pace. In DOS, it's almost insane. Maybe slowing down the emulation (CPU Cycles) in DOSBox could help somehow.

Finally, I defeated the bandito from the DOS version! You must shoot in a burst starting at the left, close to the target. The recoil will make your shooting deviate to the rightside of the screen. If you shoot right at the target you will miss, yeah don't ask . When he is standing, he's almost invincible so you must prepare yourself while he ducks.
SyX was right, right in the middle of the game, the Spanish DOS version asks for the second floppy, which is missing from the Argentinean archive (cf. screenshot). So our only hope is someone still owning the box version bearing physical floppies in good condition.




Don't hesitate CFOU! if you need more testing.
