(VIC + 8K RAM)
The 2nd generation of the redefine character set tool with support of both double height characters and multicolor characters. Since this is also in German the user instructions follow below:
After running wait a moment, until the software has made a copy of the current character set into the RAM. When finished you are prompted to enter the height ("Höhe") of the character set, you want to define. Hit  for normal height or  for double height. After that you enter the mode for the characters (=normal mode, =multicolor mode).
After that, the program displays the fitting matrix on the screen (8x8 for normal height/normal mode, 8x4 for normal height/multicolor mode, 16x8 for double height/normal mode and 16x4 for double height/multicolor mode). You move around within the matrix with the cursor keys. In normal mode you set a pixel by hitting [SPACE], in multicolor mode you use [F3], [F5] and [F7] instead. Deleting pixels is done with the [BACKSPACE] key. [Home] and [CLR Home] are also valid key strokes.
When satisfied with your character, you hit [F1]. At the bottom of the screen the question "Zeichen?" ("character?") is displayed. Enter the character you'd like to redefine. Note: If you define double height characters, remember that only every 2nd character can be defined, so you have to enter [B] for redefining the A!
The first time you defined a character, an empty test screen is displayed, where you can enter the just defined character in parallel as well as on top of each other to get the "look and feel" for the set you're creating. With [ENTER] you switch back to normal mode and the question "Zeichen ok?" ("character ok?") is displayed. Entering [N] will lead you back to the edit mode, entering [J] displays the question "Weitere Zeichen?" ("more characters?"). With [J] you go back to the edit mode with an empty matrix, with [N] the program exists and tells you the RAM address where the just defined character set is stored.
When you define other characters, the test screen keeps its old content, so that you can check if redefined characters are matching.
