Lameduke only has them because Ken loves experiementing. The game designers definitely didn't support them (the hud isn't made for it and the water reflection was made only for chained 320x200 VGA and also the SVGA modes still weren't double-buffered or VESA2.)

Not really. 2 generations after Hi-Octane's 1995 release would be way too fast in SVGA. Bullfrog didn't throttle then and their engine programmers were second to Abrash in x86 optimizing
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

Hioctane ran acceptable in SVGA on a PII-300Mhz and slightly fast on a PII-450Mhz. It took several Pentiums before reaching the ideal speed. I guess where I said generations I really meant eras.

Interesting. If you come accross more titles, let us know. If they're too many, let's create a dedicated topic.
