I did try saving all of them as well, but no go

Maybe it's a copy-protection issue? You can play the game without entering the code, but not with Valdez.

It could be a problem of bad porting from Genesis/Amiga to Dos.
Don't know, maybe using a code for the second level could help?

From what I'm reading, Valdez is in the second mission, not in the first one.

Default Desert Strike with a gamepad

Hi. I'm trying this for the first time and I can't fire missiles with the joystick (gamepad), only the machine gun. Anyone know how to make it work properly?

Ok, I figured out. The spacebar change between weapons.
You move and fire the Apache with the gamepad, but you must use the keyboard as well.
Not the best control layout, but it is playable.

DOSBox or actual retro PC? Because DOSBox has a built-in keymapper, so you can use any controls you like. Keyboard keys can be mapped to gamepad and vice versa.

Yes, DOSBox. Ok, good advice. I will check it out.

Thanks!
