comment Screen effects and antialiasing
Eh sorta kinda. There is a whole lot more to it though and simply down scaling is a not really an acceptable solution.

comment How can I update Display settings from an Options screen without restarting?
I don't think the issue is related to Allegro and its capabilities. "My question is, how can I change my design so that a change in the OptionsMenu doesn't require a restart, but is changed immediately?" The restart is because the "OptionsScreen currently cannot access the Game class" and has to load them from the setting file if I understand correctly.

I'm pretty sure that the way you are calculating spriteWidth spriteHeight is flipped. Could you post that code?

As mentioned you are not using a whole number.

The same thing can be caused for the exact the same reasons by having the texture be drawn using non whole numbers when specifying screen coordinates.

Please do with writing the image using the Texture2D save functionality and include your rendering code too please.

I think its the artifacts caused by rounding such as the outline causing squares on the shoulder.
