View Full Version : SB1-G fonts

Hello all.



I run a mixed setup which is mostly SB2 but also includes an SB1-G. The
fonts on the SB1-G appear to be 'chunkier' than those on the SB2 but for me
- in certain situations it makes them appear more 'readable'. I appreciate
that the SB1-G VFD is a different resolution to the SB2 but is there a
relatively simple way to force the SB2 to display the same fonts as the
SB1-G?



I am currently running the 'official' 6.2 release - though this appears to
have been the situation for as long s I can remember - or at least from the
time I got my first SB2.



Kind regards

SB2 uses different font files from SB1-G as the resolution is higher. If you fancy playing with a bitmap editor then you can change the font definitions, but it is not trivial and I would not recommend it unless you have lots of patience to get it right..
