Perhaps the game could be modified to permit playing the audio on *nix systems as well. Modify the sound config checks so that playSound() will execute the Win32::Sound method on a windows box, while it will execute the following line on a *nix box:

system "play " . ROCKET_DIR . "/$sound >/dev/null 2>&1 &";

This way, *nix users get sound too ;)

    Yep, I definitely need to add sound support for Unix. Thanks for the how-to info.
