you could save some text in bitmap format (on paint or something) and texture the object with that bitmap. I dont know any other ways, sorry.

Negative. Must be made into a sprite. Its like a 3d bitmap which refreshes with the screen.

I always use sprites- here is how to make text a sprite (I have posted this soooooooo many times )

yourtext$= "Laladeda"
set text font "Arial"
Set text size 30
Set text to bold
tw = text width(yourtext$)
th = text height("A")
create bitmap 17, tw, th
text 0, 0, yourtext$
get image 17, 0, 0, tw, th
delete bitmap 17
sprite 17, 300, 503, 17
