I recommend looking at some of my very early programs - unfortunately, I've lost their sources.

Well, first you can make your own font using my program. Wink The file it creates is the array of 256 character patterns, and each of them consists of 8 bytes. Each byte corresponds to one row of character, and the bits of this byte correspond to individual pixels. So the format is pretty straightforward.

Then, if you want to use this font in text mode, you can simply use function 1100h of Video BIOS interrupt. Note, that "Life" example program, that comes with fasm for DOS package, uses this function to define single character pattern for code 0DCh.

10001
10001
10001
11111
00001
00001
