  3. Run the game.

Emperor Zurg Bug

With modern hardware, on level 12 the boss fight with Zurg is almost impossible. He will always be too far away, making it near-impossible to hit him with a spin attack.[4]
Cap frame rate to 30 FPS.[5]

Notes

Emperor Zurg can still be beaten at 60 FPS. In order to beat him, he has to be cornered and trapped between two walls in a corner. Once he is cornered, charge up Buzz's spin attack, release the spin attack, quickly jump forward and pull back, otherwise Buzz will fall down. Repeat this until Zurg is defeated.
An alternative solution is to use a program to limit the CPU usage and make it not go above 1 GHz with BSE (Battle Encoder Shirase).
