pdp_ascii doesn't use font files,
but character maps, that are basically
bitmasks that can have any shapes
( pacmans, stars, space ships, ... )..

some character maps are available in
the folder charmaps in pidip,
but you can create your own,
one for halloween if you want,
they are only text files,
you can open them with any text editor.
