I just encountered the font shift thing, and the font's fine before J, and on J the top two rows are fine, the following 5 are shifted, and the rest of the font is shifted.

Do not do anything archive related. Do you have Calcsys on your calculator?

Edit:
    Nvm, I realized what I want you to do, I can do myself.

Edit2:
    I would love the savestate of someone who has the text glitch going on in wabbitemu. I just can't seem to trigger it.

I deleted ID[whatever] and it worked fine. I don't know what the [whatever] was, because that was illegible.

You know, when I was using Omnicalc's fonts, sometimes the font would get corrupted or disabled randomly.

EDIT: So Omnicalc's bug is unrelated. Oh, well. That's the sort of bug that makes you feel really stupid. I certainly know the feeling.

Found it!!! (Even though I've still never had it happen in wabbitemu.)

I was using the flags to signal whether the font needed to be shifted or not. I was also using port (07) to read fonts straight from the archive. Anyone see a problem? For those who don't know, the flags are stored at $89F0 on ram page 1. I was swapping in a different page to the $8000-$C000 memory region. Therefore, I was not reading the flags but rather the archive.

Anyways, I fixed it. So here you go.

I've only had a brief look at the code, but it looks like when the hook is called in fracDrawLFont mode, you're trying to shift the font bitmap yourself.  Don't do that; you're supposed to return the normal bitmap to the OS, and the OS will shift it left for you.

Also, it looks like you're using OP1, which is a recipe for disaster if the hook is active while assembly programs are running.

A few random questions:
Can this be made to support calcutil?
How about krolypto?
I don't know the specifics behind krolypto and calcutil, but I would almost guarantee that they use OFFSCRPT. So they'll have to fall into that "disable for compatibility section."
Maybe an idea would be to replicate the features...like, "enable password protection" and/or "run ASM programs from homescreen"
Actually btw i've been using calcutil in tandem with this and haven't had any problems as of yet...

EDIT: @thepenguin your respect is two bytes now O.o

I can confirm that zStart+custom font+Asm=Calc crash.

Umm...
I installed a custom font, installed calcutil (chaining hooks btw), and after that ran an asm program without a problem...

New bug: Text(-1 (BASIC) shifts the chars left one pxl left and, I haven't fully tested yet, but I can tell you that definate weirdness results. From what I know so far, it seems that that leftmost column gets printed eight columns over! O.O

I have a weird bug, if I install any font all characters are shifted 1 row to the left so I see all characters "killed"
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

This has been brought up already, and while I haven't gotten the chance to test, I think it's been fixed too. Scroll up for thepenguin77's post.
See you, space cowboy...

Don't worry, it will come back :) I'd install the update if I were you.
