Thanks to Julio Marchi for this space in MSX All
A MSX's font editor for PC and screens 0/1 mosaic creator.
In addiction, the editor is able to render PC fonts to export them in MSX format and generate character mosaics for screens 0 and 1.
It is based on the old Alfabeto Plus project, using a modern programming environment like Java, improving the program, the interface and introducing the character mosaic tool.
This program was coded in Java language and it is able to run in several platforms using the same binary file.
The program interface is quite simple and intuitive to use, presenting buttons with icons and tooltips.
The great new feature is the mosaic tool, where it is possible to import monochromatic images from PC (black & white) and place them at ASCII table, making possible to generate image mosaics on screens 0 and 1.
