As a matter of fact, this question came up on the Finnish Usenet discussion group sfnet.atk.cbm on November 28, 2002. Someone had made a TrueType font that contained the Commodore 64 bitmap font. The package is available at http://bserra.free.fr/C64fonts.zip. When I checked it in 2002, it contained three FON files (bitmapped Windows fonts) which I couldn't view, and one TrueType font, which included some extraneous glyphs, such as Pac Man monsters and computer manufacturer logos. > Anyone have any idea as to what software would actually do something like > this? pfaedit and maybe an automatic bitmap to vector tracer. Some months ago, I came across to an open source tracer on SourceForge.net. Unfortunately, its name escapes me at the moment. On a related note, does anyone know the name of the typeface used in labels on Commodore equipment? Someone would like to have replacement labels made for his newly acquired PET 2001.
