Does it contain time codes or just the text?

Here is how you do it

First of all you should have 3 files.
1-.Avi
2-.txt
3-.ini

Firstly you should creat the ini file using the notepad and thats by typing this: -
________________________
[MovieInfo]
File Name=
File Size=
Resolution=
Frame Rate=
AviTag=XVID
[Fonts]
TransparentFonts=1
Size=32
[Settings]
SubtitlesElevationFS=5
Zoom=0
MovieElevation=0
MovieHeightRatio=1
MovieHorizontalPosition=0
SubtitlesWidth=95
AudioStreamNumber=0
[LastMovie]
MoviePosition=3895.85986328125
RestorePosition=1
[Chapters]
n0=
p0=0
_______________________
then save as .ini

after you finish from this step you go to the text document and there you type you subtitle in this form:-
{0}{200}bla bla bla
{201}(400)bla bla bla .........
.
...etc.
then save it as text and you are done

thank you
