Default [Lang. Problem] Seeing gibberish instead of Hebrew.

Hi there
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, and my problem is that when I change the language to Hebrew, I get gibberish letters. Like in these photos:


Selecting Hebrew Language

The Gibbrish letters as a result



kindly help me

I noticed that you're not using most up to date BS.Player version.
Therefore...
maybe first try an updated language file: http://peterg.coi.co.il/תרגום-BSPlayer.htm ( BS.Player תרגום עברי ל / Hebrew translation for BS.Player ).
Only if that doesn't help read on...
This maybe related to a known bug in the last three builds.
As a temporary solution:
Under (rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Subtitles [Subtitle properties] ...
(1) ... verify setting of the box "Use new subtitle parser/renderer"; try if (de)selection makes any difference.
(2) ... verify what script is selected under [Font]; if (e.g.) Western .. change it to correct script.

Another possibility is to load the file Hebrew.lng (in subfolder "lang" of BS.Player's installation folder) in Notepad. Without making any changes click on "File" > "Save as" and verify at the bottom what Encoding is selected (e.g. UTF-8 or ANSI). Now change this setting and save file.

(Please let us know the result!)

Thank you,
saving the lang format in various formats [UTF-8, UNICODE]
- proved a success .......

BUT:
it's partly ok,
the prefrences menu is still in gibberish:

Partly Hebrew Partly gibberish

Did you meanwhile update BS.Player version/build?
Are you now using the more up-to-date language-file (or the adapted old one as included in the distribution)?

And what encoding did eventually solve it? I suppose either ANSI or UTF-8 (with "Byte Order Mark") as suggested by me?

it was indeed UTF-8, the tricky and minor detail was changing the extension back to .lang , because after editing the lagauge file with notepad, even when I chose 'save as all files', it kept the file it in a .txt form.

i dont understand, however the meaning of (with "Byte Order Mark")
