The good thing when you are asked a question is that it obliges you to break paradigms and therefore learn more.
So the limit I thought for Aranym and VI2 was wrong. You can go higher than 800x592 or 800x608, but it's not a standard resolution.
I have reached 1008x1024x16b ; that's the maximum for horizontal resolution, above that aranym freeze or corrupt the screen; for the vertical resolution you may be able to go higher but the monitor I have now is limited to 1280x1024. If you apply a similar multiplier ratio than for horizontal resolution I guess you could reach 1008x1200; to be experimented by others.
For 1,4 and 8 bits, I confirm that 1920x1200 works well too.
Now how can you set it up?
I have set Aranym Video mode as below :
If you use a different monitor resolution, set it up in the "custom" field.
You can play with the parameters, but it's important to keep Autozoom and Fixed size selected.

I have put in the archive an updated VI2.dat with different resolutions. Copy it to C:\
The trick is that for 1,4 and 8 bits reso, you must choose "normal line" and "Pixel x 4", and for 16 bits resol "Double line" and "Pixel x2"
Regarding the monitor frequency preference, it has to be set in such a way that every resolutions are within the range :
For example :
Once you select a 16 bits resolution with VI2_CNF, VI will tell to set the TOS to 320x480x0 ; it's a bug ; read 320x480x16 bits

Yes, it's kind of tricky, you need to increment click per click with a very short click, a real pain in the ars. The easiest way to create a resolution is to start with an existing one close to what you need, increase a lot "pixels per line" and "pixels per VBL", and increment Horizontal and vertical resolution click per click. If you are fast enought you can increase 16 pixels per 16 pixels which the minimum increment value ; when you are done, you can decrease "Pixels per line" and "Pixels per VBL" by a long click on "-" and it will stop automatically to the right value.
