Custom soft menu display and Larger fonts possible?

Post by c0rpse »

Does anyone with a bit of experience in tweaking the DM42 firmware know if either of these are possible?

I want to make a custom soft menu dislplay that matches the old school font, and makes the boxes a little taller.
This seems possible by defining my own versions of the "lcd_draw_menu" functions using some of the graphics functions. Then replacing the library
function calls with my own.

Larger fonts are self explanatory but as far as I can tell don't seem possible? Has anyone tried larger font numbers than "lcd_nextFontNr" will return?

I realized that there are examples of solutions to these in the C43/43C project on github.

I also now see that size 4 is the widest the font can be and still fit the 15/16 characters to match FREE42 / 42s. This also explains why size 5 only stretches vertically.
