Thank you for looking over this matter everyone.  I have looked at the Fedora's games (I am not a gamer myself actually) to modify my game to be in synch with others and have decided to switch to C++ and:
 - Add a menu dialog consisting of sound preferences and such using wxWidgets
 - Expand a game area so there is more room to move.
 Thanks again for all your feedback and for looking over the StarControl2 thing.  I'll keep you posted of my progress.
 Oh, and I renamed the game to "Maximum Destruction" (I hope there are no other games with this name) :)
 Best regards,
