  • tamzen-font

    πŸ’Œ Bitmapped programming font, based on Tamsyn

    It looks like it's been iterated on quite a few times. Here's an active descendant project, for anyone that might be interested: https://github.com/sunaku/tamzen-font

  • freakwan

    A floor-routing WAN implementing a chat over bare-LoRa (no LoRaWAN).

    There is another one here, with a tool to easily modify the font.

  • spectrum-env

    ZX Spectrum Environment

    In my experience you get a lot of density moving to a variable-width font, which is quite easy to write for a Z80 system. For example I've designed a couple with the horizontal size in the first byte of the bitmap:

    https://github.com/Veltas/spectrum-env/blob/master/font-smal...

    Rendering:

    https://github.com/Veltas/spectrum-env/blob/master/text.asm#...

    Looking back at it, my Z80 for this isn't that good, but it was still fast enough to redraw a whole line of text in 1 or 2 frames, I'm sure others can do better.

  • Adventureland-2600

    Adventureland 2600 is a port of Scott Adam's Adventureland to the Atari 2600

    Interesting. With a bit of work, this would have genuine use for something like a text display on an Atari2600, where the dimensions are significantly limited.

    I've used glyphs as small as 4x5 but I've struggled to come up with anything smaller for most characters.

    Here's an example of a full text adventure for the 2600 if anyone's interested https://github.com/JetSetIlly/Adventureland-2600

    Better or worse with an even smaller font? I'm not sure.

  • font3x3
