I tested the new updated Pico XP and it is running with the Command Prompt. Its kind of has a weired tittle.
I used the script as with default setting you set up. That means with compression and all went fine.

It reports 12 errors but it seems to be working.

The collected errors:
QUOTE
Processing script: 0 - Make directories

The errors are ok. Most of them report a "could not delete section..." that is an error message when no error occured. Nuno Brito is working on this.

The last 2 error messages say that 'my' font is not there
QUOTE
I see why i had that weired Window tittle. There was no font in the Tools folder named that. So i clicked on the add Arial font. Is that other font suppose to be in the Tools folder?

I derived it from Arial using a font editor. If somebody wants to have a smaller font than Arial he has to do the same. I think it is not legal to deliver my changed font.

QUOTE
The Command prompt seems not to recognize some of the Keyboard keys when you type them.


The log shows that you did not choose an English keyboard in the according script. The default currently is German (I'm going to change that, as well as the predefined 'my' font.

You right the default keyboard is German right now. Ok Well that explains it. So everything seems to be Working out. (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Might have to look for a small free or open source font.


Can you post a screenshot of the how your font looks like.

It still is "Arial". But I removed everything above index 255 (Arial has 1673 characters). Now only ASCII and standard latin accented characters are in my derived font. No Japanese etc.

Do not worry about using standard Arial. It was just a demonstration how to save some more bytes in the final ISO.

I found a free font that is small. It includes 4 fonts of the same family,
It seems only the bold ones result in a working font for the Command prompt.

http://www.kottke.org/plus/type/silkscreen/
Silkscreen Font - Small and free font
slkscr.ttf
slkscrb.ttf
slkscre.ttf
slkscreb.ttf

The ones with the b at the end of the name seem to work. and the size is small about 16KB.

The silkscreen font appears to have only CAPITALS.

The usual reference for "terminal" font are these:
http://www.procon.com.au/HVTerm.htm
http://www.procon.com.au/FontDnLd.htm#DL-DOSBox
but they are not Freeware.

I have read ummpthh times the official MS page:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...B;EN-US;Q247815

but I never got around to actually understand fully it, probably some more info on fonts are needed or the (very old) program I have is not good at it..

If one can get to understand it, it should not be difficult to make a custom font, starting from one of the freeware ones.

Here is a guy who tried doing the above:
http://www.magnumsworld.com/muds
http://www.magma.ca/~2k00lmag/muds/modterm.htm
http://www.magma.ca/~2k00lmag/muds/modterm.zip
but it seems he has found the same difficulties I had and resolved to only make a 12 points FON.


On the other hand, Uwe Sieber has some fonts that are free for private use:
http://www.uwe-sieber.de/dosfonfe.shtml

Also there is this Proggyfonts, that has some nice fonts:
http://www.proggyfonts.com/index.php?menu=about
http://www.proggyfonts.com/fontforums/viewtopic.php?t=38

Any taker?

Nice research jaclaz, Uwe Sieber seems a good choice.

I've been looking on the reactOS fonts and I know little about fonts, but can't they be used? (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)
