what's the reason behind this? For example scaling everything up still
results in crisp lines etc?

Of course it does, primitives are drawn using polygons and they are going to use screen pixels (i.e. the actual resolution). It's impossible to emulate a scaled mode setting with transformations with respect to how the primitives are drawn.

That's why you always use an intermediate bitmap that you then scale up if you want large pixels with your primitives. If you really want a virtual mode in Allegro, that is the method you need to use.
