Because Chunky mode would be faster, as it is on PC. Have a look at this (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=92318) article which describes why Doom just wouldn't work on a vanilla A1200.

There were two reasons why I switched to PC: Commodore's collapse, and Doom.

Apologies, Daedalus, you're absolutely right. I'm speaking strictly from a viewpoint of using plain AGA only, with no RTG or even PPC stuff in consideration. It was just an observation, anyway. :)

This is one thing I've noticed about Amiga vs PC demos these days, that the PC will invariably have up to 1920x1080 pixels as maximum for a demo, but the humble Amiga will only have 320x256 pixels...

I thought SVGA was 640x480 (which AGA can handle easily) and the later modes like 800x600 were VESA modes?
