Thanks Myk!

Really appreciative of your help... now if I could just find some time to play and try my hand at mods. :)

(Maybe a note regarding debugging slowing down the game significantly, so people don't make my mistake [...])
Good idea.  added.

One extra note for the future:

When you run: "ccmake ..", there is a "DATADIR" field, where you can define your data directory. Doing that may circumvent the need for the "- data [...]" part of the command line call.

good idea -- I'll have to test that out and add a note
