Title: Fonts with more than 256 chars
Post by: Jackokring on November 17, 2018, 09:08:55 PM
Does anyone know if the console cli supports .psfu 512 character fonts with control codes SI and SO?

I'm at the point of doing a cross platform font idea for dev.

Amiga disk fonts are limited in their (stored) structures. According to the documentation (http://amigadev.elowar.com/read/ADCD_2.1/Libraries_Manual_guide/node03E0.html) it is bound by tf_loChar and tf_HiChar fields inside struct TextField (http://amigadev.elowar.com/read/ADCD_2.1/Libraries_Manual_guide/node03DE.html).

Yep, I saw that in the docs. Is there any code page mechanism? Does SetFont clear the display? :(

Or just draw in the new font?  :)

Unlikely, you may extend the console.device yourself...
