    [MSDOS\VBDOS] Change font Symbol

    Well since vbdos 1.0 does not support font I thought of creating a drive like the MSDOS anscii drive and replacing the old drive with the new one with the Character changed since the character representation is the same what will change is the symbol of it is viable to do something so because changing the source of MSDOS I assume it will change from VBDOS?

    I donít understand what changing the drive has to do with the font used in MSDOS.

    Have by any chance heard of search engines?
    A Google search on ďMSDOS fontsĒ gave this:

    to hunt a species to extinction is not logical !
    since 2010 the number of Tigers are rising again in 2016 - 3900 were counted. with Baby Callas it's 3901, my wife and I had 2-3 months the privilege of raising a Baby Tiger.

    Re: [MSDOS\VBDOS] Change font Symbol

    Thanks, I understood more than just the bitmap and setting up a font for MSDOS would be a lot of work in terms of making a table and there would be no need for that because we don't live in the era of. But it would be possible to use this in vb3 or vb4 as it does not have the ability to import system fonts use fonts included in them

    Well I want to create a mega repository of old versions of windows \ dos with countless current possibilities, color fonts etc. even windows 95 which is very old. Newer versions my idea is to create a live cd.

    I assume there are already archives with all operating systems created by Microsoft.

    And you are also creating fake windows versions with VB6 , eg mimicking Windows 1

    So I still donít understand the logic of this all

    fake versions are not just versions of a fan that imitate old versions but the idea is to create legal accessories and give the possibility to those who want to edit and use and reuse abandon ware as an example of studies.
