I've compiled a Fixed DUNE2.EXE pack. Thanks to research made by TrueBrain of the OpenDUNE project, the problem with the player's buildings deteriorating with time regardless of whether they were placed on concrete or not. The fix turns off building deterioration for structures with concrete foundations, which is consistent with the in-game information:
Slabs are used to provide stable building foundations. We have found that anything built on bare rock will deteriorate rapidly.
Concrete slabs are an effective and inexpensive foundation material. Structures without foundations will require frequent repair, and waste valuable time and money.
The package contains EXE files for all known releases of Dune II. Additionally, the "manual check" dialog is disabled in all EXE's, and a minor problem with speech in German and French has been fixed for the European three-language versions.
