Re: Arcade-ish Proportional character set

After lots of tinkering, I've set upon a decent encoding format that can be used for both scrolling and printing text.

I thought Bernard personally. Not enough Bernards around these days. Bernie Winters and Schnorbitz? Schnorbitz, although canine in origin, did have something of the Panda about him. Or how about a female Panda, Janice? Pam?

The Adventures of Pam the Panda :lol:

Re: Arcade-ish Proportional character set

As a game name it opens up a multitude of possibilities, and Pandas fit well into the Speccys colour limitations!
