As far as I know, you cannot complete either the full version of UW1 or the playable demo of it using the uwadv engine.

Leaving this bug as open since a new version of uwadv is in the works and may be out by the end of 2006.

Can close this bug, the project is discontinued:

Frome the home page:
I'm sorry to say that the current status of the Underworld Adventures project is "inactive". I didn't find enough time in the last few months and years to productively work on the project. Another thing that slowed me down a bit is the fact that it should be possible without much work to get Ultima Underworld 1 and 2 to run on Windows XP and later (via the proper settings), using DosBox under non-Windows operating systems, or with using VMware (Player) to emulate the old operating systems.
