DOS - 1990
Description of Lightspeed
Lightspeed and Hyperspeed are without a doubt two of the most underrated space sims of all time designed by celebrated Gunship 2000 and F-15 Strike Eagle III designer Andy Hollis. Although billed as "adventure/strategy" games, they are actually space sims with some adventure game elements. Still, categorization quibbles can't hide the fact that they are two of the very best-- with fluid animations, cool ships, and great interface.
In all, great space exploration sims that follow in the venerable Elite tradition. Highly recommended.

THG released a working version, get it over at XTCA. This version (from rawcopy.exe and also the neverlock.exe version) crashes during spindrive.

The hex edit that is used to bypass the "copy protection" also breaks the navigation in the game. This was a known issue back when the game was really popular.

The copy protection in this version of the game isn't really broken - if you try to go to navigation it crashes because of the copy protection. You need to break it manually with a contemporary (for the game) breaking program like NeverLock, and then the game will play fine. Goes the same for Hyperspeed.
