    A lot of shareware games were also distributed on Floppy disks. Sure you could download some small patch files and what not that were only a couple KB to a MB each. But you wouldn't need a 500MB HDD...

    The hard drive probably wouldn't have done much for load times, we're talking Mid-90's specs after all, and looking at the kind of drive it looks to be an off the shelf 500MB IDE hard drive. And DLC...

    Not really. You could skip VDP1 and have VDP2 draw the bulk of things like Hexen does. The point is, Doom is not only using VDP1, it's using it to draw the bulk of the scene. That there should tell...

    It was definitely the process on the Jaguar. The Jaguar version is still using software rendering on the RISC CPUs. And just to put this to bed, here is proof that Doom on Saturn is using VDP1 to...

    The custom jaguar chips are CPUs, so it's still software rendering on the Jaguar. And Jim did use VDP1.

    For the love of good work on your reading comprehension as it's quite poor. Those custom chips are RISC Processors. Those are the processors handling the software rendering code for Doom.

    You realize that the 68000 isn't supposed to be the main CPU on the Jaguar right? Atari intended people to use the RISC chips, but most developers opted for the 68000 because it was easier. Doom uses...

    Hexen doesn't use VDP1 to render the walls, floors, etc. VDP1 just draws character sprites, objects, etc. The walls, floors, etc. are instead drawn by VDP2.
