If you're looking for something that feels more like a community patch than 1.13 mod, then look up "JA2 Stracciatella", it's a separate project. AFAIK at this point it's mostly about cleaning up the code and fixing bugs, no significant gameplay changes. Also makes old JA2 playable on modern systems, Linux included. Not sure about high-res support, but I'd be surprised if they didn't figure something out by now.
To add on, Stracciatella 'high-res' feature is for tactical screen viewport only, everything else (like strategic screen & GUI elements) remains at 640x480. Download the 'Nightlies' version for the latest bugfixes.
Highly recommended to use Stracciatella for 1st-timers/replaying at vanilla settings.

Also, as more people upgrade to 4K/higher DPI monitors on Windows OS, recommend to use IntegerScaler with '-clipcursor' option to play in 'Windowed Mode' for both Stracciatella (Win7 & above to take screenshots) and 1.13 (Win8 & above at native monitor resolution for non-blurry text).

Below is Stracciatella running at 800x600 internal resolution, 2x integer-scaled to 1600x1200:

Edit: Added Stracciatella links
