    I have never been able to use the subtitles in VS with my videos (but I have not tried that much). I hope someone can help you. I think there were other threads about it.

    Hi Ke4, did you have any success at all with the video subtitles? Whatever I try, they never show up roll

    To begin with, where did you find the scripts from your first post above?

    Thanks!

    Ok, I have the answer, big thanks to SimonS!

    The correct syntax is:

    game:setValue(VGameVideoSubtitleLanguage, "eng")
    1
    2


    Now the subtitles should show.

    Hi Simon, no i've been trying to get it work about a year, can't believe the solution is so simple.

    Thanks! That actually changes a lot for me now.

    Hi Simon, have you tried to set a font for the subtitles?
    With
    VGameVideoSubtitleFont
    1
    2


    I checked the syntax to avoid the same problem, but still nothing.
    It selected one of my fonts, but i don't know why it selected the one it selected.

    I think it should be something along the lines of...
    game.VideoSubtitleFont = Fonts["name"]
    1
    2

    No idea if it's correct as I've never used it before. Do you know if the subtitle has to be image format, ttf format or either?

    I've tried this and few more ways to write the syntax, but nothing.
    It uses my ttf font which i use for my character ( it shows in the video even if i change it for the character, so i don't understand why it uses this one )

    game.VideoSubtitleFont = Fonts["name"]
    game.GameVideoSubtitleFont = Fonts["name"]
    game.GameVideoSubtitleFont = game.GameFontLinks.name
    1
    2
    3
    4

    I've no idea - video, image & audio related stuff is all down to David. I believe SimonS sorted out the font stuff, but David is the one that sorts out all the media related stuff.

    If anyone would have the same problem, in my case it is using the font with ID 0 even if i change it. So i changed the ID 0 font into the video subtitles font and for character i used different font.
