The font size changes depending on what screen MODE you're using.

You could try doing this:

Code: Select all

MODE 13: MOVE 0,0
The MOVE 0,0 is necessary because for some reason, brandy doesn't properly change MODE until you do a graphics operation.

Just a heads-up, Matrix Brandy, a fork of Brandy BASIC, doesn'thave that bug requiring a MOVE after a mode change.

(However, on my old Wheezy installation on my RPi2, you need to compile without -O2 else graphics functions mis-plot and can crash it. No idea the cause, as it doesn't do that on my CentOS 6 box.)
