There is a script called newrez
With this one you can change the resolution on the fly virtual (tunelled) with a terminal command - or even with a starter.
The Script could be downloaded here :
https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/do ... rez.tar.gz
You have also to install zenity
Once downloaded and extracted - save the script to:
and make it executable.
rename it from newrez.sh to newrez
Restart the System.

It is also possible to do this within a starter.

And : dont worry - as it is only virtual it cant destroy the display e.g.
