Give a try to our UTFT library emulator. http://pd4ml.com/pixelmeister/
Apart from its main function, it also allows you to import images to rgb565 bitmaps and to convert TTF fonts into a very compact raster format. To support the converted fonts we provide uText library, built on the top of UTFT. (It can be easily ported to any platform, which has means to draw horizontal and vertical lines). The font/text functionality is not limited by a particular character codepage - you can mix any languages in a displayed text.
