You could well be right

I don't remember when it was added - though it doesn't take up extra space.

I'm just saying that high resolution was all but unplayable and that Doom 2 had 320x200 as well.

The reason Doom 2 looked better was because it wasn't "true 3D". The engine used some clever trickery to simulate 3D - which meant their textures could have more detail or whatever.

Not clear on the details anymore - but I definitely agree with critics that Doom 2 was a prettier and smoother game.
