Icon Deluxe + Source

Has anyone got a copy of Icon Deluxe? The demo is on aminet.

https://aminet.net/package/gfx/edit/IconDeluxe2_0

Looks like the author released it at a later date:

https://amigareport.com/ar509/news12.html

But I cant find it anywhere.

Cheers.

Did you also bug the photographer today? I asked the photographer Brian Tietz but he was like, “nope, wrong guy.”

Icon Deluxe + Source

Hey! You never know. Maybe he gave up on the Amiga and BeOS, and focused on photography and surfing. Found several projects the author worked on in BeOS category but still sporting the ucsd address before I had to attend meetings and got lost in work. Glad you found him. Look forward to hearing the details.

I love that you went down the same rabbit hole as I did.

Icons and the future of a good editor for one, are totally worth it. Let’s get the source on aminet if you get it.

Sadly no reply yet. I am 99% certain I've found the right guy on Facebook though.

Let me know what you find. I have an in progress icon creation app that will soon support layers for macOS. I’d love to bring some of that to the Amiga.

You will be the first to know if anything happens. Your editor sounds good would love to see it on the Amiga. With a few little tweaks Icon Deluxe would be perfect for creating standard icons.

Many thanks Lascap.

But, is it possibile to edit colorful glow icons or only standard 4 color icons ?

Hi DanyPPC,
The maximum of colors that is indicated in the software is 16.
I suppose it's a classic icon editor but it desserve a try to be sure, I do not know well glow icons...

I guess this hacked version is safe to use? Be careful though...

Quote:
A word of warning: A while after the demo version of IconDeluxe was released (it wasn't crippled, but had a save delay) a pirate version surfaced in which the save delay was removed. I got pissed off and added a land mine to the public version: if the save delay was removed, it would erase the cracker's hard drive if he wasn't careful in how he modified the program (hehehe). This code is still in the source. It is encapsulated in #ifdef PUBLIC, and is conditional on the save delay having been removed to trigger the trap, but make sure to be careful and remove that code anyway.
The author, as he released the program and source... Near the bottom of the text here

Pity, the source is lost. Compiling it cleanly would be the nicest solution.

Did you get confirmation that the source was indeed lost?
