    I've installed Rokuhan decoders in my Shinkansen, but DecoderPro can't recognize it. Not surprising as they're relatively new and Z-scale is relatively niche. It works using a Digitrax decoder definition, except that the room lights turn on using F1 from the base station, but F2 from the phone throttle. I can live with that, but I'd rather not if I don't have to as there are probably other issues that haven't come up yet. There is some info on how to edit a definition on the JMRI site, but I don't really know enough about XML files to put in the specific stuff for a Rokuhan decoder. Does anybody know of a good, basic tutorial for writing/editing decoder definitions? Or even better, a repository that has definitions for the Rokuhan A059 decoder?

    Thanks

    I recommend you join the JMRI Users Group:

    https://groups.io/g/jmriusers

    Decoder definitions are a frequent topic of discussion, and virtually all of the JMRI developers are on hand to answer questions, including those who create decoder definitions.
