I was wondering if there is any way to turn on anti aliasing for a 2D game? Also, can I apply texture filtering to sprites?

I've seen some workaround solutions, so am I right to assume that there is no simple command for this?

I don't personally know if there's a single screen filter or anything like that to apply AA to everything on the screen or not, but what I generally do is make my sprites with .PNGs and build the AA right into the transparency.

Works fine for me, but I guess you might call that a "workaround". But I don't know of any commands or methods to automatically force AA on 2D sprites.

It might be best to use oversized images, then scale the sprites - especially with rotation, as that's usually a killer. I would try making a 48x48 image, then using that on a 32x32 sprite and rotate it, see if it improves matters having that extra resolution.
