I've started using bitmap fonts in project, and whenever I use them, they are always uniformly coloured. Is it correct that Sparrow only supports monochrome bitmap fonts? I'm probably doing something silly, but I couldn't see an obvious way to allow the original colour of the texture I was using for the font to be used.
If that's the case, I've made a simple change to the Sparrow Framework to allow the original texture of the font to be used while compositing the characters together. It's available on a branch of the fork I have of Sparrow:
If it looks OK I could submit it as a pull request. Or is there a better way for me to be displaying custom coloured fonts?
