Open Sourcing my VSD File

I recently uploaded my Virtual Sound Decoder files and source to Github for anyone interested in playing around with them.

https://github.com/ekapus/VSD-Conrail-Engine-Pack

Wanted to share with the gang.

It's a pretty cool tech, especially for smaller layouts where sound is more for operational purposes than anything else. '

Here's a rundown on it: https://conrail1285.com/getting-started-with-jmri-virtual-sound-decoders/

Interesting read on your "conrail1285" site.  I found the VSD by accident on JMRI, but had no idea what it was for.  So many thanks.

The link to github is giving me a "server error 500" message.  Which could just be my machine, but generally github works for me.

If you don't know what it is, don't throw it out.

Glad to help.

Just tried the link. Seemed ok to me. Maybe a brief hiccup with GitHub.

Hello Ed:

This is "CONRAIL" Conrad.  Thanks to you I am a proud member of the CRHS.

You provided invaluable VSD help back in the summer of 2018.  My question - Is this Github file the same as the Conrail Engine Pack that you sent me via DropBox back on August 14, 2018?

I really enjoy VSD and have 20+ "VSD" locos in my JMRI roster

GPL2, eh?  ;)

Is there a header needed in every non-binary file?
