Thank you for some great jobs here.

This movie however consists of two files and only one file for subtitles. And the subsnall are in txt-format. So unless you really know your way around subtitles, you should stay away from this release.

Just me :) said...

What is the problem? Subs are OK, 2 movies files, 2 subtitles files, fully synchronized, i dont understand what you mean?

jazzman said...

Really sorry then. I must have overlooked one file. I´ll give it another try later.

Again thanx for a great job.

Regarding subs in .txt format: Just rename these .srt and all is good.
