5 x 7 font in scanlines style.
Painstakingly redone from movie screenshots.
Characters guessed: b j q x z " ! @ _ $ + ; [ \ ] ` ~
The ^ caret character is an upward pointing arrow, and is shown in the movie. This is correct based on the old ASCII-1963 standard, where ^ and _ were an upward and leftward pointing arrow, respectively.
I don't believe this font actually matches any specific contemporary terminal from the mid 70s to early 80s, I believe it was done custom for the movie. It is clearly inspired by the character set from several terminals.
One notable feature of the font (shared with several CRT terminals in the 1970s and 1980s) is that no more than 8 adjacent vertical rows within the 7*x10 character cell can be active at any given point. The 'block cursor' violates this, but the circuitry to display that was separate from the circuitry to read the character ROM and shift it vertically.
* Technically the character is 8 pixels wide, but if the 8th/leftmost pixel is set, it will apparently also appear as the rightmost '9th' pixel in the inter-character column, which is undesirable.This can be seen in the custom character set in the movie used for the country outlines during the "UNITED STATES" "SOVIET UNION" "WHICH SIDE DO YOU WANT?" scene. (Either that, or this was an accidental error during creation of those custom characters for the movie.)
The movie also often uses an "overline" character in order to underline the row above, and this occupies an entire row of characters on screen when this happens. Is this the true 'shape' of the underline character?
Font for Razma TV, a procedural TV show generator.
This has already proven quite useful for making scanline art!
Inspired by raster scanning & horizontal synchronization for image & video display.
Another font Inspired by a Lumines Song.
You're In The House!
5x5 pixel font with a built-in scanline effect. Because of its subtractive nature and low resolution, some glyphs are impossible to depict.
Original size: 4.5pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A variant of "GP Cannon" which attempts to take advantage of antialiasing methods which are used on it. The "skeleton" of each letter hides under the scanlines, causing effects ranging from motion blur to a wet-marker look. It works as both a pixel font and a high-resolution font!
It gives me strong "Atari ST" vibes...This is a clone of GP Cannon
This is an experiment; I used only one composite brick to come up with such a font.
~ - * are the filled chars.
I designed this 16x16 pixel font to facilitate texturing and dithering for pixel artists. Not every piece of art software has tools designed for texturing/dithering, and loading lots of custom brushes for the purpose can slow one's software way down as well. This font was made to attempt to solve these problems. Now you can dither, shade, and texture by typing! Every glyph repeats as a seamless texture both horizontally and vertically.
The name comes from my emulator/game, "Virtua Gremlin". Although these patterns weren't in the game (it used 9x9 tiles, not 16x16), many of the patterns here are based on that earlier work. "Skins" is a reference to graphical skins, of course. :D
A-Z = textures
a-z = dithering/shading patterns
0-9 = scanlines
The rest is sort of a mishmash... I'll organize it better once I have enough glyphs to warrant a good classification system...
Have an idea for a pattern? Want to see a particular sprite or aesthetic included? Let me know :D
Original size: 12pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Tip: View this in the Character Map so you can more easily grab and paste glyphs when designing!

Inspired by one of my previous font that use only 12 segments (from a video game engine). But also inspired by CRT (cathode ray tube) screens (with scan lines). Eight versions are available: regular, bold, light, light bold, small regular, small bold, small light, small light bold. Designed for headlines (big sizes). Consistent rendering with a light color on a black background. See that on http://scancrt.com/ and tell me wich version you prefer ;-)This is a clone of ScanCRT small regular
