Windows 8 and 10 "segmentation violation" crash

SCWW2 requires compatibility with DirectX 7. Something in Windows 8/10 or a specific driver breaks something necessary for running in full screen mode for some people. If you experience a crash with a message like this: FAILED (draw_map_to_screen_from_buffer): Segmentation violation you need to disable Full Screen mode within SCWW2. To do this, toggle Full Screen "off" by going to the menu: MAIN MENU->SETTINGS turn off FULL SCREEN
