comment How to pack the game files into one without using any file compressor?
You can simply use a standard zip library such as dotnetzip.codeplex.com to combine everything. It also support fetching individual files out of the archive. Note that zip is not a compressed file format.

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.
