that's ONE sub file and TWENTY FOUR video files.

where are the other 23 sub files?

or do you only want one episode to be subtitled?

The subtitles are all at that site. I was just downloading them as I needed them. The principal difficulty is that the Diana Rigg intro is not included in the video files, but IS included in the subtitle files, thus throwing everything out of whack.

In the meantime, I have found another site here with files that purport to include the subtitles with the Diana Rigg intro. I am currently downloading Season I to verify this claim. You will find it here:

what is keeping you from deleting the intro from the subs?
you don't even need a subtitles program for that, you can do it with a notepad.

I tried that, but, if I remember correctly, they didn't stay deleted. I think they showed up a later point in the video than they did the first time. But it's precisely those fine adjustments I can't handle. Anyway, I appreciate your input.

that's one "if" too many, right there.

i can't even begin to understand how some text un-deletes itself.

if you won't mind packing ALL 24 untouched sub files into a single zip folder, uploading it to zippyshare, and sending me the link, then i won't mind downloading 11.6 GB of video files to see what can be done.

Well, I'd not really call that a "beginners guide" Smile It's intended for folks going serious about anime fansub timing. It's not easy, so no shame in not getting that part...

OK, that's my academic caution. After "deleting" the intro lines, I found they showed up later in the video than they did the first time. At first, I thought my alterations had eliminated the subtitles, but they were simply moved along in the timestream.

Of course, it can't -- if it's been properly deleted. Obviously, I screwed up because I didn't really know what I was doing.

THEY DID.

I appreciate your offer, but I don't know how to pack all the sub files into a single zip folder.

select/highlight the "bad" lines and hit the delete button. simple and effective.

I'm pretty sure that's what I did, but it didn't work.
