Hi guys,

I saw the disk explorer it has a raster font. But raster fonts are not very useful and get a lot pixelated. So i decided to do myself my own MSX TTF:

The good thing is following this tuto you can use it as your windows prompt font :)

Nice, but it is already done I think. Check this site out. Dunno if the exact MSX font is already there but a lot of similar fonts are.

those fonts you said font are japanese and don't support OEM charset, thus can' t be used in the dos prompt. Look how cute my dos prompt looks now:

I have included all Latin glyphs.

Cool !

I see you're using the 40 columns proportion on the font. It would be nice to have a version with the 80 column font proportion too. Smile

The font seems to have some problems when used on a Mac:

That's true. I've have fixed those, maybe other accented O's could show the same problem but I cannot easily test them with my French-Canadian keyboard

Here is the fix:

Indeed, there are some bugged O's:

Try using a font viewer, like Character Map on Windows or the Font Book on Mac OS-X? Both are built-in on their systems.
