Subtitle (caption) issues

Regarding font size and color the solution is in:


Color is set to 0xFFF0F0F0 ARGB

Size is stored value of menu item (I guess 0,1,2) * 2 + 24 --> CMmCaptionWnd::SetFontSize( 24 + N * 2 )
UpdateCaptionTextSize does the same.

Outline I think can't be done now. But I think setting the CaptionWindow's background color and alpha should be possible or setting the font background color and alpha.

Anyone digging this or just me?

People ask around for Subtitle problems. Some of them want to change color, others request shadow :)

Shadowing is possible with showing same subtitle twice with black %50 alpha colored + location shifted.
But question is could we change subtitle showing location? Also second write of subtitle will clear old subtitle too. We needed to keep old black shadowed one.
I wish to program with exeDSP source :?

Once subtitle control is gained, we can open the pool for modification. But now, its too early to open it.
DTS 's harder than subtitle control and this project follows SJF (shortest job first) logic
