cli shell tool - font replacement

i'm looking for a tool, once used on my workbench disk, later hdd.
it was a little shell/cli utility, which came with maybe 10-20 premade fonts.
not those standard workbench fonts, just some custom made font files.
which were place inside a folder maybe in s: or c:
from cli/shell you enabled it by: "specialfonttool special-font-name"
you then got some good looking 8 point topaz-replacement fonts.
i think it came on one of those tooldisks or it was just on a public domain series disk.

anyone can remember this one?

I think you are right - found it on LSD LEgal Disks #013 - with a bunch of fonts.
still struggle a bit with it, because it does not load the fonts provided. *brb*

yep, this is the one, very cool. it does work on a simple a1200 setup. have to try it on my
"special" setup. thanks alot

Glad to have helped..

Think i saw it on some music disk.. still not sure which one it is you wanted..

Powerfonts 8 would be the replacement fonts.. Newtopaz was a replacement topaz font better looking that the default..

back in the days i found it on such a compact/tool disk collection thing.
i'm still not sure which font i was using back then- Metallion 06 font is a good one.
still it doesnt work wiith my special-pimped-uber-system setup, but on clean a1200 config,
it does as expected
