A collection of fonts. Most are 8x8 pixels, some fit 6x8 and a few are 8x16.

fonts.txt contains an overview.

fonts.zip contains the fonts. Each font is a graphic file arranged as 64x256 pixels. You can import these files into the Magellan editor.

Pineapple is a font viewer and tester.

If you have requests, questions or additional info please post here.


The first font is probably the most famous of all. As far as I can see, it goes back to early Namco arcades.

Excellent idea! I sure can use some fonts for my future games.

Thanks! :)

thanks for the update :)

Would CAPCOM fonts work well, e.g. the font used in VULGUS ?

Say no more. Vulgus has been added. It sure would be nice in a game, but doesn't have a lot of characters defined. I try and match only TI ASCII characters and leave out game characters and other special stuff.

Do you have the whole PETSCII font or just the alphanumerics ?

Yep, PETSCII's now available, both shifted and unshifted (the latter with lowercase). Layout is not ASCII !

just little question : why don't you save without anti-aliasing ?

I thought I did. Some software resizes and use some sort of anti-aliasing just browsing. :)

Now this is a funny one. Most of the characters are the usual 8x8 pixels and arranged as ASCII. There is however a few needing an additional 8x8 pixels. Characters like G and J need to be 8x16 and others like M and W need to be 16x8. It actually looks pretty cool when you put it all together.
