Can you send me an example ( copy/paste)

The demo called "Demo A" does it, it gets to "On the" - just before "New CityRail Line"

EDIT: seems to be anything over 9 seconds in a manual typed in announcement, and varies if you saved them.

Just tried that one on version 5.2.1 as a typed in announcement (on both Win 7 and Mac OSX 10.9), doesn't do that for me :/
If you can get a screen recording of it happening, might be helpful though

Remember I'm running Yosemite (10.10).

I'm just alerting you to things that have broken in the upgrade to Yosemite - as Beta as it may be - because I'm forced to use a newer version of Java.

It did not happen in 10.9? Haven't tried 10.10 yet.

No, it didn't due to the Java version, I suspect.

Version 5.2.2 released. Some bug fixes, automatic announcements that play while the indicator is showing, and source code released.


  • Added: Play auto-generated DVA announcements while the Indicator board is showing.

  • Added: Many new Sydney DVA sounds.

  • Added: Added support for handling different inflections (i.e. rising and falling) for the same sound bite. This is available in, for example the Sydney Male and Female DVA. Multiple inflections, if available, will be shown underneath the sound list. The inflection used in the announcement is automatically decided based on sentence structure, but can be overridden as described in Help.

  • Added: Program source released, under the conditions of the existing software Licence. The source code contained in a file named src.zip, located on the disk image on Mac, and in the C:Program FilesDVA folder on Windows.

  • Updated: Modernised start-up sound.

  • Fixed: Show progress when opening screen saver settings window, due to the length of the operation.

  • Fixed: Announcements continuing to play after closing the indicator window using the window's close button.

  • Fixed: DVA failing to start on Mac OSX 10.10 ('Yosemite').

Thank you, the program is very good.

The only problem with it is that I can't seem to properly export announcements I have made.

While pressing the export button allows me to save a .wav file, when I go to open it the file is empty and won't play. Is there anyway to fix this issue?

Thanks again.

It's always been broken. I haven't yet worked out how to use the java sound API to join together sound files with different formats in one file. Hope to fix it in a future version, maybe by finding a different library to use

You remember how you asked me to provide an example for you? I found one:



Highlighted plays fine, gets to there, stops dead.

It may be a while before I can investigate or attempt to reproduce that problem, s3. I only have the one Mac and it is on 10.9. I have 10.10 running in the virtual machine but sound seems not to be supported in it. It'll be easier to investigate once 10.10 is publicly released. Then the vm software will likely be updated to emulate sound.

But the good news is I was looking into a java project named xuggler which is based around ffmpeg, a library for encoding/decoding audio originally written for Linux. Have been experimenting with an alternate code path in DVA that uses this library, which has a good chance of solving s3gunzels playback problem and should also solve exporting to a wav file.

When you're ready is fine - I'm just reporting it.

Does it do realtime timetable?

No it doesn't.

I have noticed that all trains show 4 cars. Is there a way to fix this?

Change the value in "Cars", below Departure Time and next to Platform No. at the bottom left of the train's info

@PKBeam - can't do that on "timetable"

Oh, timetable?
I never use that much.

Is it possible to add the new Sydney Trains And NSW Trains sounds? All we have are the Cityrail ones

CoatsyJnr

It definitely is, if someone can supply them. I don't know anyone who has them Smile
That is why there are no high quality sounds for e.g. new stations on the ECRL.

@PKBeam - can't do that on "timetable"

Planned for a future version. Currently on auto (timetable) mode it is hard coded to be platform 1, 4 cars, but it will be easy to make it configurable. That info would be in the working timetable, but the timetable is currently generated from Cityrail's website which doesn't have that info.

Does it do realtime timetable?
CoatsyJnr

It is 'realtime' in the sense that it shows timetabled departures based off what the time currently is. It does not take into account delays etc. Not sure if that info is publicly available. Wouldn't be hard to integrate if it is.
The timetable is whichever one was active when I scraped the Cityrail website, and I don't remember if it was the weekday or weekend timetable. A future version will have both and could take the day into account as well as the current time to show the correct weekday or weekend departures.

Doesn't the Tripview app for mobiles have some realtime train location data? I think Cityrail or TNSW released this data to all the programmers so they could incorporate it into their apps.
