XVI32: Character Conversion

Character conversion is performed using self-defined character tables. In the above example, character $C0 will be converted to $9C. Each table can be stored in a XCT file to reload it later. XVI32 comes with the following XCT files:

XCT files are plain text, so you can create them also using a text editor. Just write for each character to convert a line with the hexadecimal character codes, e.g. to replace character $80 by $C7:
