Is there a way to turn off the anti-aliasing on the text object?
It's quite annoying when you're making a game featuring pixel art.

I could do, but it looks pretty ugly!

Also, for pixel art games you might like turning the sampler in application properties from linear to point, which will stop the "smoothing" effect.

I agree, there should be a checkbox for the text smoothing. Pixel-art games look funny with anti-aliased text. Just as hires-art games look funny with pixelated text.

And aliased text doesn't have to look ugly, it all depends on what the font is, and what font size you set it to. There are loads of small-point game fonts that are meant to be displayed without anti-aliasing.

OK, I'll add an aliased/antialiased text mode for next build.
