    One time as a prank I set my co-worker’s bash $PS1 to C:\>

    Setting this as their font in their terminal would have been a great companion prank.

      Looks fantastic. Can anyone explain how it compares to the Ultimate Old School font collection? https://int10h.org/oldschool-pc-fonts/

        This is a really good collection, shame I wasn’t aware of it earlier :)
        So what I did is loading dosbox and taking snapshot of a whole lot of codepages, then draw the characters one-by-one. Classic Console Neue (currently) has 1675 glyphs, while the most complete 8x16 from this site is only 788. I don’t know if it is important :) Mind you - some of are my own creation based on unicode glyphs.

          Fantastic work! I occasionally need to recreate old DOS screens in high res for printed publications and fonts like this are indispensable.

            Little update: glyph counter jumped above 2900, also fixed some issues around cyrillic characters.

          Thanks for the tip! I’ll definitely use it as reference or inspiration while developing the remaining glyphs, but the resolution is different and it may be blurry on the size where CCN is looking best. On the other hand, unifont alone is 12MBs, which is not suitable for web use cases (unless split along unicode ranges) and I have a feeling that it has some impact on the OS as well when installed.
