Crashes on launch
I think it's because my DEP is turned on, but I'm not about to turn it off.

no it's not because of DEP sadly, this is just one of those few games that dosen't like moden day system. Some people have gotten it to work, but a lot of people have crash at launch. Which is damn shame

@Joker Mole - Seems so - was having the same issue and tried it after adding to DEP exceptions, now runs. Hope thats of some use to somebody.

Edit: also put it on XP compatability and ran as admin (Win7).

Here is the fix for Windows 7:

Goto "Control Panel" --> System --> Advanced system settings --> under the "Advanced" tab, under "Performance" section, click on "Settings" ---> click on "Data Execution Prevention" tab ---> click "Add..." ---> browse steamapps for the main.exe for Space Hack

Once you add that it will run.

We shouldn't have to do that. DEP exists to protect us from badly-written and malicious programs.

Crashes for me as well... I know let's give everyone a free game that does not work! At least we know why they are giving it away :-(

Yeah i've had this argument with Meridian before, i bought this game a few months ago over on Gamefly since it was on sale. Didn't work for me then either and when i contacted Meridian support they basically said tough, we ain't going to fix it. Which i sort of understand given it's age, but given that a LOT of people have issues with it (and they admited that they have a lot of issues with the game), i don't see why they keep selling it.

Thankfully once i mailed Gamefly a copy of Meridian's reply they gave me a full refund. Feel sorry for anyone buying any of meridian's games since their customer support is pretty much dead and steam won't care if the games work or not
