I have been using this tool (bmGlyph http://www.bmglyph.com/) to create fonts from apple machines, but now, I'm on windows and need a program with same / more features. The main features about this program is the possibility of give a grandient color and apply a texture to each glyph. Could anybody recommend something like this for windows?

Thanks in advance.

I only know a basic one: BMFont by AngelCode. So, I'd be interested in this answer as well. –  Byte56 Jul 20 '12 at 16:11
    
You can always use GIMP/Photoshop or other similar tools. If you need to do this programmatically/at runtime, you might want to look into MS' DirectWrite API –  melak47 Jul 20 '12 at 16:30

possible duplicate of Tool to create a bitmap font from a true type font –  user744 Jul 20 '12 at 16:33
    
I think it isn't a duplicate. I have checked (roughtly) the applications that are exposed and they bitmap fonts but I can't use gradients or textures on every glyph. As I exposed this is really important to me because it gives a really nice look. –  Notbad Jul 20 '12 at 20:56
