Thanks for the help Ortega, but I still can't get it.  I get either green or black subs.  I can't get the readable ones that the original dvd has.  I'm trying to follow your directions, but It just isn't working.  I've always had trouble with subtitles, they never work for me.

Hmmm, me too.  I thought this would do it.

To correct fuzzy green subtitles in the new IFO:

a. Open the original movie's IFO / VTS_PGCITI / VTS_PGC_1.

b. Select "Subtitle color" dropdown menu and "Copy Colors from this PGC".

c. Open the new movie's IFO / VTS_PGCITI / VTS_PGC_1.

d. Select "Subtitle color" dropdown menu and "Paste Colors into this PGC".

e. Save IFO, overwrite BUP when prompted

f. Get VTS Sectors

g. exit program

That didn't work for me (still got fuzzy green subs).  What did work was using Rejig to reauthor, instead of IfoEdit, adding the subs I made with SubtitleCreator (thanks to Wiseblood's instructions).  Rejig has something called "Copy Subtitle Colours", which you load the original IFO into.  This got the subs to be the same colour as the original dvd.  Then in dvdshrink I set the subs to be the default subtitle stream (in reauthor mode, drag movie into left area, right click it, set default strams, display the following subpicture stream [1.English]).

Finally.  Now I can go back and fix all my other Star Wars riffs.  Even though for most of them I already know what they're saying, and for the other ones, I could care less.

Once you have a subtitle color scheme you like, copy that VTS_01_0.IFO file and place it somewhere on your hard drive, so it can be used later to fix other subtitles.

It sounds like the VTS_01_0.IFO file you ar using does not contain a color palette. You can confirm this by highlighting the VTS_PGC_1, then  scrolling down in the main window to the Color section. You should see varying values (dec). If you see zeros, the VTS_01_0.IFO or whatever file you have loaded is not the correct file used for subtitle colors.

Thanks CHF.  I'll remember that for next time!
