Dear Hung Ngoc Nguyen, dear Forum,

I think the complete character tables of the universal covers of the
mentioned simple groups are not known (and so not in the GAP character table

But you can find the lists of character degrees (and multiplicities) for these
groups, and even covers of O8+(q), O8-(q), O9(q) for all prime powers q,
on the web page:


See under "D_4(q)_sc", "^2D_4(q)_sc", "B_4(q)_sc", respectively.

With best regards,
