bug#28840: openrct2 cannot find data-path

Hi Ludo,

No, I am talking about resources such as shaders and
language packs, which seem to be included in openrct2 itself.
IOW, even *with* the data files from the proprietary rct2, our current openrct2
does not run without the command line flags I added to my first posting :-).

Are you talking about the game assets, or is it something different?
