DVA software

A few years back I wrote a program to make your own DVA announcements. In my spare I wrote a new version of it. The new version is written using Java so it runs on Windows and Mac.

Current version: 5.3.18 released 25th August 2017
Download (Mac): http://dvaupdate.blob.core.windows.net/5-3-18/DVA5.dmg.bz2
Download (Windows): http://dvaupdate.blob.core.windows.net/5-3-18/DVA5Setup.exe
Download (Linux): http://dvaupdate.blob.core.windows.net/5-3-18/DVA5.deb
New versions can be installed over the top of the old version without uninstalling.

(If you are using a Mac and get the message "cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer", right click and choose Open. This will only happen the first time you open it.)

Very impressive. Easy to use.

All you need now is all the sound files. Someone out there has them ie for Sydney

Version 5.0.8 released with some bug fixes when playing an announcement whose sound library doesn't exist and exporting announcements containing punctuation. When writing the exported wav file the punctuation is now correctly interpreted as silence like when playing the announcement.

The sound file listed as "something West" is in fact "Euabalong West" (located on the western region of the regional train network near Condobolin).

Is there a way to cretate custom station names as that would really help with my current projects? Smile

Thanks for releasing this its awesome!! Very Happy

The only thing that could make it better is the original sound files that are used. Does anyone happen to have them?

Cheers

The gentleman I knew who had the sound files has long been a missing entity. I'm also trying to track them down.

Hmm... it suddenly stopped working on my PC.
It worked fine a month ago but now whenever I click it just doesn't open.
I'm running Windows 8.1 and I only downloaded the .exe file.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Oops, my bad, I didn't have the latest Java installed

EDIT: Oh, and the "Werrington" sound file is the whole original MP3 I gave you, you forgot to cut it up into bits Wink

Version 5.2.0 is now available, containing a lot of new or improved-quality Sydney sounds (thanks to Charlie Munns), and a Cityrail indicator emulator (basically a rewrite of the old Plasma Screen Emulator).
