800x600 in DOS Mercs 1.6

Is it possible to set resolution to 800x600 in DOS Mercs? I can set only 320x240,640x480 and 1024x768. If it possible - tell me how, please? Maybe some custom unofficial patch or something.

No, it is not possible to play in 800x600 with non-3d enhanced versions; unless you set the game to run in an 800x600 window in dosbox.conf, but that would simply stretch the window to fill a 800x600 space on the desktop.

To my knowledge you cant mod the dos resolution. You have to choose one of the three, but hey the windows version only gets two without mod .
