FileDescriptionWorking?Notes
1ENCY3CZZT Encyclopedia Volume 1OKRandom Items only yields TORCH type due to perfect modulo-4 cycle limit, and Display Fixer fails to show unique GUI labels because ZZT Ultra erases labels completely.
2ENCY3CZZT Encyclopedia Volume 2OKAll practical bugs/features implemented. However, there are so many useless exploits that ZZT Ultra does not try to emulate them all.
ADVLINK2Link IIPARTIAL 
AURAAuraOKToo-rapid aura switching warps player to clones. This and other bugs originally present are reproduced by ZZT Ultra.

Also, in ZZT Ultra, this game plays REALLY fast on later levels (hard to get blue ending).
AVARICEAvarice (SZT)OKThe "Christmas tree" quad-direction blink wall only points up.
BOLETTEPepper BolettePARTIAL 
BEAUNASHSabotagePARTIAL 
BRANDON1Legend of BrandoniaOK 
BQUEST*Banana QuestPARTIALBQDELTA.WAD is necessary to run Banana Quest. However, at this time, Banana Quest is still not 100%.
BURGERJBurger JointOKPrecise timing needed for episode 4; object alignment is hit-or-miss after the Jukebox dance (same as in original ZZT engine). Future PWAD patch recommended to fix this subjective alignment.
BURGLAR*BurglarPARTIAL 
CATCATCat, Cat,
That Damn Cat
OK 
CHASEV12The Wild ChaseOK 
CODERED*Code RedPARTIAL 
CRYPTThe CryptOK 
CWARS*Chrono WarsPARTIAL

ELIS_H_*Eli's HousePARTIALMany unusual parsing cases
ENIGMAMission: EnigmaPARTIAL 
ESPFILE*Evil Sorcerer's PartyPARTIAL 
EZANYAEzanyaPARTIALThe sliding puzzle in the caverns is non-deterministic based on pusher iteration order; zap-cheating might be mandatory (true in original ZZT engine as well).
FANTASYFantasy LandOK 
FLIMTOWNFlimsy TownPARTIALNeed to research the full scope of technical hurdles for this file.
FROST1Frost Part 1: PowerOK 
FUZZYLUVFuzzy Love HorrorOK 
JACKYTJacky TOKIt works. It's also insane.
KNIGHT /
NEDEND
Ned the KnightPARTIALThere is board corruption in the NEDEND world file.
KUDZU20KudzuOK 
LANDINGLandingOK 
LD38-QHKQuickHackOKThe "Tome Sweeney" cannot be read unless the original ZIP file is loaded, per ZZT Ultra's sandbox requirements for external files.
LEBENSRMLebensraumOKIf POINTBLANKFIRING is 1, soldiers can shoot each other a lot more easily, and you can fight officers more easily. Not sure if this should be considered part of the game difficulty.
LEMMINGLemmings DemoOK 
LINKSADVLink's AdventureOK 
LINKADV2Link's Adventure 2OKThere is board corruption in the world file.
LINKADV3Link's Adventure 3OKThere is board corruption in the world file, which stops progress on the final red door and fight with Ganon. No editor can display these bad boards; logical end of game is assumed.
LSTLittle Square ThingsOKZZT Ultra has no performance delay, so it's quite tough on level 7 and against CraNKGod.
MACGYVERMacGyver ZZTOKPOINTBLANKFIRING must be 0.
MANORMystery ManorPARTIALIt is highly recommended that you set KEYLIMIT to a number like 20. This game requires lots of tedious key-collection backtracking without any good reason.
MERBOTIAMerbotiaOK 
MERCThe MercenaryOK 
MGSVRMMetal Gear Solid:

NYANNyan Cat's
Adventures in NyanLand
OKIf POINTBLANKFIRING is not 0, Sharon Needles is easier to rescue. This is because the turrets "shoot" themselves.
