Finally I got this game working again some time ago thanks to the amazing dgVoodoo wrapper that was released some time ago, but it seems that the fun was not meant to last.

For those of you that have played long enough into the game to encounter the Zurg battle, you may notice that this boss, somehow, became unbeatable (unless you exploit the battle with good timed glitches). As I read on the internets, this has been an issue for quite some time, and the only workaround I have read about this far is to use an application to speed-down the CPU below 1ghz (an app called BES, short for Battle Encoder Shirase was mentioned) so that the boss becomes defeatable again.

I have tried this method with no success, and now Zurg just stands there laughing at me for not being able to even touch his metal frame. He just moves far away from the screen, and as the situation is now, I suppose I have to leave this game in the shelf without any working and somewhat accessible solution at hand.

Any suggestions?

Could it be another issue of the game depending on the framerate? I have not tried it myself for Toy Story 2, but I know DXTory works wonders for limiting framerates for PC games, recently tried it on Lego Island wrapped in dgVoodoo2 and it works how it should with the right framerate value.

I have not tried this yet, but I have my doubts that limiting the fps would work, since when unchecking the "Force Vsync" box in dgvoodoo, Toy Story 2 runs at maybe 20-30 fps and in slow motion, and the boss fight is still bugged.

But I should maybe give it a chance either way; the slow-motion behavior of the game while not forcing vsync may the that the game still maintains a rather high fps, but the game engine gets confused while there's no vsync activated (I should find a way to display the games actual fps).

Edit: Forcing vsync would actually in theory limit the fps to the screens refresh rate. I have mostly played this game on my TV via hdmi, and then I don't get more than 60fps max with vsync on.
