BZFlag (297)

This patch complements patch #3513240 and allows to use UTF-8 characters in the .po files using extended but still compatible font format.

    2 things,
    1) we have code in the 2.99 branch that already supports unicode and uses TTF fonts directly. We want to backport this instead of making an new system.
    2) you replaced the fonts with different ones, we can't use those fonts due to licensing issues on debian.

    It would help if in the future you came onto IRC to talk about changes before you take the time to make them so we can direct your generous work in the direction that best benifits the project and our long term goals.

    sorry the font comment was wrong, you set it to use the corrent ones, my bad. but still we want to use TTF directly.

    Yes, I know about 2.99. I made a patch to support utf-8 (and russian localization) with FTGL 4 years ago. That's why I thought that FTGL is still far ahead or out of the way.
    Sure, it was my mistake to not ask about your plans now.
    If I can help with backporting, please let me know.
