Yet another load of pixellated character sets, converted from classic PC-related hardware for your enjoyment. And for the sake of balance, a decidedly non-pixellated update of an old mainstay.
Code projects are now hosted on GitHub, so you all get shiny new download links to match. Also: a Fontraption update, and a split in the ranks.
To make up for the 4-year holdup, it's quite a big update: 133 new font families (from 52 different sources), 3 new variants for each font (.ttf w/embedded bitmaps, aspect-corrected .ttf, and .woff for the web), and a revamped website to hold all of these (somewhat) together.
A tool for quick and painless file transfers from host to guest. No need to restart the emulated machine, to create temporary images manually, or to set up any kind of networking: one click, and your files go through.
A new font editor for DOS: dual tab interface, clipboard, block operations, 40/80 columns, 8/9-dot mode. Handles ROM + BMP + XBIN formats, and can create configurable .COM TSRs. All in a 12KB executable (source is included, plus a huge pack of fonts).
Does VGA 40-column text mode hurt your eyeballs and disfigure the games you play? A couple of small, mode-specific font replacement TSRs to the rescue.
Using a TV set as a CGA display device has its issues, especially horizontal centering and color in 80-column text mode. These utilities should help. There's a bootable version too, so you can throw it at your favorite booter games.
Yet another go at converting the pre-GUI PC's most iconic typeface into a TrueType font. This time, a version with scalable outlines and a faithful aspect ratio.
My present: 'Sorry Ass' - a 512-byte boot sector version of Bill Gates' DONKEY, the infamous demonstration game included with DOS and BASIC 1.0.
After giving Keen 4's CGA version a 16-color composite overhaul, I figured I'd have a go at the next episode. More custom code and graphics for the artifact-color aficionado.
This game is a pretty impressive piece of CGA programming, but there's one thing it doesn't do: exploit NTSC quirks to get 16 colors on a TV/composite monitor, instead of the familiar 4. Here's how you can change that with a patch and a custom set of converted graphics.
Presenting the world's biggest collection of classic text mode fonts, system fonts and BIOS fonts from the DOS-era IBM PCs and compatibles. Contains TrueType (TTF) and bitmap (FON) versions of the original character sets, and some unicode expansions as well.
