This is 'PxPlus', .TTF only
The Ultimate Oldschool PC Font Pack started out with the idea of paying tribute to ancient PCs and their bitmapped,
pre-GUI typography (if you can call it that). It was inspired by similar efforts that cover other vintage machines:
classic system fonts from the Amiga, C64, Apple II, Mac, ZX Spectrum, Atari 8-bit/ST etc. are all celebrated.
On the other hand, the IBM PC and its clones seem to get little love...
except for that one VGA text mode font
(which has been remade numerous times, to varying degrees of success).
This collection is here to remedy that, and to bring you pixel-perfect remakes of various type styles from text-mode era PCs
- in modern, multi-platform, Unicode-compatible TrueType form (plus straight bitmap versions).
Although the goal is to make it a complete resource, the main focus is on hardware character sets:
the kind that's located in a ROM chip on the system board or graphics card, which is
what you'd see by default when working in text (or graphics) mode.
Software-loadable fonts are also within the scope of this collection
(if associated with a particular machine or display system), so some of these have also made it in.
The collection includes 185 font files in total (made up of 81 different typefaces).
All styles are available with the CP437 character set (DOS Latin-US),
in both .FON and .TTF formats, and 23 of them also have expanded
Unicode versions ('PxPlus', .TTF only).
