Hi,

Hi,
is there a way to get the FPC Dos Screen bigger?

I assume that you don't mean "Dos screen", but rather console window under MS Windows - either in the FPC text-mode IDE, or in Free Vision. If it's the former, you can do the following:

  • Start cmd.exe
  • Change the window size using the top left icon (Alt-Space) -> Preferences (the last line in the displayed menu) -> Layout (the third tab)
  • Start FP
  • If it changes the window size to the smaller one, go to Options -> Environment -> Preferences, scroll to the bottom of the Video mode list (which should contain the original window resolution), confirm OK, confirm the new resolution and then save the FP IDE options using Options -> Save ...

If your question refers to FV (rather than IDE), then you can have a look at the IDE sources to the part where the video mode is being configured as described above.

Hope this helps

I don*t have Windows at hands right now, but from memory:
You have to change the character buffer for each line, e.g. 120 characters. The console will force a new line for each character outside that setting.

Yes, Kupferstecher is right.

Look at the attached screenshoot to adjust the values for a 1280 x 1024 screen.

And on the page "Font" you can change the font to Lucida something, which is a TTF. So you can size it to 144 - if you like.
