Yep, another one... Grab it here.
I basically tried to expand on the ol' FONTEDIT with a bunch of additional features:
- Edit two fonts at a time, using tabs to keep the UI consistent
- Flexible clipboard transfer of full/partial characters or character ranges
- Various block manipulation functions: flip X/Y, fill/erase, invert, slide
- Grab any of the built-in fonts from the VGA BIOS ROM
- Save/load as raw binary data; import/export BMP, XBIN and COM (plain/TSR)
- Supports any font height that VGA text mode can handle, up to 32 lines
- Preview your font in 40 or 80 columns (8 or 9 pixels per column)
- Uses pure text mode for speed; runs on any VGA-capable system (8088 and up)
- Various palettes, a decent file browser, etc.
Thanks to those who have helped with testing, especially keropi (on a whole army of VGA cards!) and reenigne (on the original IBM VGA).
For DOSBox, you'll probably want a recent build. This one should do the trick on Windows -- it supports 2x/3x (forced) scaling for all standard text modes, and minimizes the screen-resize delay, to cut down on garbled frames when switching resolutions.
