The attached file includes 5x8 fonts for A-Z, a-z, 0-9, some punctuation, and some awesome 8x8 patterns and graphics. Not that it matters, but I am using the AVR ATtiny2313 and AVRStudio 4.16 with WinAVR GCC for controlling my scrolling display.How big is a 5x7 dot matrix font?
There are alot of ways to get this file. The common sizes of displays are 5x7 and 8x8.Is the 8x8 font the same as the BIOS font?
The 8x8 font is identical to the PC BIOS one, but it gets its own version, since the narrower aspect ratio in 350-line modes is specific to EGA: When the EGA is used with a monochrome monitor, character cells receive a bonus 9th column just like on MDA/Hercules. The 14-line font even sports wider variants of some glyphs for this purpose.What kind of font do I need for a video ROM?
For EGA and up, IBM included the full version in the on-board video ROM, for text *and* graphics modes that require an 8x8 font. The wide '2x' version is seen e.g. in 160x200 (PCjr) or 320x400 (VGA).
