Hello, would it be possible to add support to be able to control 2 lines for software?, these lines would be F/S and REVERSE MODE. In my display the values are the following ones:
F/S High=6x8 font Low=8x8 font
R/M High=Normal Low=Reverse colours

A lot of thanks.

It is possible but would require some extra hardware as the parallel port doesn't have free output pins left so I haven't yet got to work on that. But it is possible to share the parallel port pins using some additional hardware and by changing the driver to be aware of these hardware changes.

With the USB LCD I'm working on this should be easy to add.

Ok henri, I have heard that in a web some pictures appeared explaining how to take out a parallel port connecting it to the pines of expansion of usb of the mainboard, but I have not still seen him, and I cannot confirm it, that that yes I have seen they are chips that make it, I will continue looking for since I also want to connect it to the port usb and at the moment the usb to parallel cables have some very high prices (350$ in a Spanish web of hardware sale), at least in my country.
Thank you for your work. :D
