The text .bmp is not exactly any ONE size
font. Different fonts come in different sizes.
However, the best thing to know is that each
text character is 5 pixels across and 6
pixels vertical. SO this real small- which
gives very little room for "Snazzy" fonts.
(And forget about anti aliasing)
The main thing that matters is the the
text color, and the background color. Keep
it simple, and mainly coinciding with your
There are times you want a little different
look though, so basically what I do is zoom up real close so i can see big pixels. Then
I add and subtract pixels from the original
"font" that's there.
