Have you tried those options with X11? – user10547 Mar 11 '10 at 0:09

Try Visor (now renamed to TotalTerminal)

It provides a nice "top-down" terminal like you can find in fps game and also some other enhancements.

I love Visor. (2 more to go). – Josh K Mar 11 '10 at 0:28
On any new Mac, Visor is consistently one of the first programs I install. Set a keyboard shortcut to enable showing/hiding the Terminal and you're off to the races. I prefer fading it in rather than sliding down, but that's just me. – Scottie Mar 11 '10 at 9:20
yeah! is great, now called totalTerminal – juanpablo Oct 12 '11 at 0:11
The default window has only 24 lines, how to change the default setting? – jackode Dec 5 '13 at 1:40
Visor is now TotalTerminal - TotalTerminal is now discontinued - any other suggestions? – Greg Oct 29 '15 at 12:36

TotalTerminal is a plugin for the default Terminal application.

TotalTerminal SShot

Visor was renamed as TotalTerminal.

Update: I use iTerm2 now.
