What works

Installation, menu/gui, sound, playing [scenarios, tutorials, sandbox], saving/loading games, download addons, windowed mode.

What does not

Changing resolution in-game left me with a small playable area in the top left corner, everything else was scrambled.

Intro video. Could not get past the loading screen in fullscreen mode.

Performance with a massive zoo, unlocking new scenarios.

Additional Comments

Changed fullscreen to 0 in zoo.ini to get it to run past loading screen. This was the "Zoo Tycoon Complete Collection" DVD-version. I'm unsure of the exact game version, but I only installed the original game, not the included expansions.
