Default Subtitle position in build 808

Seems that subtitle position is not saved. When opening file again, subtitle is in another position, not the one selected before. Wasn't that fixed once ?

Edit:
Seems that:

<SubAutoPos type="int">0</SubAutoPos>

keeps reverting to >1<
Solution, for now, is to modify that line using wordpad and after that to set properties for the xml file to readonly.

Maybe is my fault, let see the whole history:

Renamed folder where old version was installed from BSPlayer1 to BSPlayer1-old. Did not uninstalled it

Installed new version using installer downloaded from main page.

Copyied the .xml file (the one with my preferences) from old folder to new folder.

No more remembering of the sub position.

Hope this will help.
Edited:
Now the older version don't remember the subtitle position neither.
But in a day or so I must do a clean install on my Windows and see what is happening.

This time I didn't use the exe-installer but the zipped version.
The original BSPlayer.xml file which was contained in the zipped file is still in the installation folder (unchanged).
However, upon using BSPlayer it has created the new format file "BSPlayer.USERNAME.xml" which now holds user's settings.
In my file, when I have subtitles manually placed, the subposition lines read as follows:
<SubAutoPos type="int">0</SubAutoPos>
<SubPos type="int">numeric value</SubPos>
(where "numeric value" of course is a numeric value depending on where I positioned the subtitles).
Do you also have such file BSPlayer.USERNAME.xml in your installation folder?

(Also I'm using default path \\Program Files\Webteh\BSPlayer\ for version 1.00 RC1)

One step solved. As long as position is above 0 (positive values) all work ok. But in the moment you go under 0 (negative values ) it gets screwed. An I like -15 position, right above black border. DEfinetly is a BSPlayer bug. Hope will get fixed some day.

5=<SubPos type="int">1562</SubPos>
10=<SubPos type="int">3125</SubPos>
15=<SubPos type="int">4688</SubPos>
-5=<SubPos type="int">4294965734</SubPos>
-10=<SubPos type="int">4294964171</SubPos>

So, when the value for subtitle position goes under 0 (negative value) the registered value goes nuts. Probably the "-" screw up the firs byte of the integer value. And probably it causes an internal error and BSplayer swiches SubAutoPos to value 1, forcing the autopositioning of subtitle on the"0" that BST defined and deleting the custom one. Probably redefining the "0" position on the bottom of the movie window will solve the situation. Or the "-" generate another number for recalling position . If I am right about what i wrote here. If not, that's it. Hope this will help.

Default Subtitle position not remembered in case of negative values!

I further tested and indeed when sub's position comes in negative numbers, its position is no longer remembered!
Further, I think we're on to something here what is at the basis of this buggie!
When I saw the numbers they reminded me of an experience in the past when I used to do a lot with that old beastie (DOS) WordPerfect 5.1 and its macro's:
In WP5.1 (native) it was not possible to work (calculate) with integers of (or resulting in) a larger value than 2147483647. Actually WP5.1's range went from minus 2147483648 to plus 2147483647. In other words a total range of 4294967295. (Now, doesn't this value look a bit familiar?)
Why? Because that is the maximum value which can be expressed in 32 bits. Look here for a clear and simple explanation (if you need it).

@ZorMi:
Are you sure that you're using BSPlayer's native capacity to display subtitles and not another program (like e.g. DVobSub or ffdshow)?
(E.g. does a green arrow appear in your system tray?)

I only have DivX 5.1.1 installed with its player and never tried ffdshow or similar. There is no green arrow. When I turn off 'draw to overlay' I can move subtitle up&down but then I do not have subtitle on TV...

Until today I used BSP v0.84 for years, this version is much improved (interface, stability, options...) except this little obstacle.
