Favorite font in DOSBOX

Postby dejanr » 2012-3-04 @ 03:31

Is it possible to use my own favorite font in the DOSBOX window? The font is attached - it is a console font, works well in the DOS window of 32-bit Windows.

I tried to load the font from within DOSBOX, but did not know how. In Windows I just select Properties / Font and select Raster Fonts, and then 11x20 font and it just appears.

Please help.

Don't mix DOS box with DOSBox.

you can do it the same way as you did in the DOS days. (it's a table in the emulated memory, easy to change with an utility or TSR)
However you can't do weird resolutions as 11x12

some early VGA (256KB version) did support weird font height between 8 to 16 for their non-standard text modes.
you still need 1 bytes (8 pixels) per 'line', so 8x## fonts
