This was my favourite exploit as well—though it never occurred to me to use the balloon, and I didn't release that the chests were infinite. As I recall, the trick also worked in Ultima V, which was a godsend when trying to get past tricky bits of the Underworld. (Just flip the disk to the Britannia side, walk around the obstacle, and then stick the Underworld side back in!)

I wonder what happens in Ultima IV or V when you flip the disk before entering a dungeon room. Ever tried?

Hi Tristan, thanks for your comment! I never did try doing the reverse flip, until just now. The result will be my next screenshot of the day. :) Unfortunately it wasn't very playable.
