I don't know, whether this would fit to the idea of SFML.

An overlaodable CustomFont class we can use with a sf::Text object.

rough idea of usage:
Code: [Select]
class MyFont : CustomFont
{
  sf::Font fnt;

  void draw_character(UniCodeeChar char)
  {
    Texture t = fnt.GetTexture(char);

    //handle offset seomehow
   
    // draw green Circle around character
    // draw t with red color, and scalred along y axis
    // draw t with yellow Color
  }
};


To achieve in this case something like this:

(image removed)

A more usefull case for this class could be rendering Text with custom glow or smooth shadow aor any other text effects

I don't think that real-time effects on text would be easily possible in SFML, but custom bitmap fonts may be implemented in the future:
