Looking for "Palcon"

This is software mentioned a few times here:
http://www.lemonamiga.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4534

Does anybody have a download for it? I can't find it anywhere at all, including Aminet. Thanks.

And I can't even access that because I don't yet have the ability to view The Zone.

From doing some more investigation; it seems that it's available via TPUG (Toronto PET Users Group)...

Search this Amiga catalogue .PDF for "Palcon": https://www.tpug.ca/tpug-media/catal...g%20300dpi.pdf

Code:
(A)TBO - September 91
---------------------
PALCON - switches 1 MB Fatter
Agnes systems between NTSC
and PAL format screens (CLI)
You can order the "TPUG Library CD" here I guess as I can't find the disk anywhere: https://www.tpug.ca/2009/12/tpug-library-cd-available/

I see... I have a bit of a problem paying 20+ dollars just for one piece of public domain software, but thanks for what you've found so far. And I have indeed joined The Zone. lol

Yeah me too... it's just that I can't seem to find the specified disk anywhere.

Anyway, hopefully someone on EAB has this software

I presume that you've tried asking on Lemon Amiga?

OK, rumor (the internet) has it that it is included on a disk called amoner01.dms.

The one I use is Palcon. It's only about 2K, and since it's so small, it
boots FAST and works great! I got it from the Amoner01.dms Amos demo disk
on hubcap.
That disk is here:
http://ftp.fi.netbsd.org/pub/amiga/programming/amos/

Not at my Amiga so I can't verify that.

Wow, nice find indeed desiv

...with your Dr. Watson sleuth work above and the ".doc" now in The Zone!, that's all anyone should need

So, via emulation, I've take the file "PALCon" off the "amoner01.dms" and then .LHA'd up.

Oh, wow. Awesome! Turns out this won't work with my older Amiga 500, as it requires ECS Agnus to work, but I'm sure this would be still very nice to have for others that do have that.
