Is it possible use chars like AŹ§ and AŹ? with OmegaBitmapFont?

Not easily. By default it only does characters from 32 to 127. I had alter one file so that it would do to 255 for that very reason.

Or you could do a very simple workaround. there are other chars supported like _; etc.

You could find some you don't need, then in your text replace the "A," with the "_" for example, and in the image for the "_" you have an "A," image. No problem with that.

I'm probably stating the obvious here, but couldn't the OmegaBitmapFont class be extended to handle more fonts, maybe even Unicode? Does Omega have a TrueType Font class?

Omega has bitmap fonts and d3dfont which I believe end up as bitmap fonts also. Omega's font support is below par in my opinion.
