The font from the TRS-80 Color Computer, one of the computers I cut my programming teeth on. Characters were traced directly from the system ROM. (I still have the thing in my closet!) Currently only includes the standard ASCII characters, although I'm considering adding the international characters from the ROM.


Wonderful! I regret that we got rid of our CoCo in the early 1990s.

Glad to see this one fonted and would love to see an expanded set, Codeman38. I've been a fan of your computer fonts for the last 8 years!

Hi, nice job! Looks like a couple of issues tho - the i is one pixel too short compared to my screenshots and there is a pixel missing on the 9.  Also, when making monospace fonts you have to turn on 'View Width' and ensure they all have the same width - right now the auto-calculation is throwing off the widths on il!1[(),.;'{} and space characters.
