BIOS Font use

Gentlemen and Ladies:
On November 25th DAV posted an excellent Sub using the BIOS font information.  I used it in SCREEN 12, 80, 30, and found that it had the same size character as 80, 60 would give. It was transparent which I like but need the larger character size.  Is the larger character size at a different location than DEF SEG = &HFFA6? And what changes would be needed in the SUB BIOSPRINT ?
Thanks for your comments,
Jack C.

RE: BIOS Font use

In screen 12 as other graphics modes, you really have to make your own fonts or one already done for QuickBasic.

If you have QuickBasic version 4.5 you can see 1 example (a couple of different fonts are done but they are all done in the same way) in my installd6.bas program
