[MPlayer-users] Mencoder and transparent subtitles, again

I am having a big problem encoding subtitles when I use mencoder to encode DVDs to Divx. 
I have a bunch of Anime (a club thing, and not porn) that I am trying to copy off of the clubs DVDs onto CD-Rs. People 
keep killing the DVDs. 
I made a script that I can bulk encode vob files, 100 eps at a time, using the 3 pass encoding. 
It video quality is great, but the subtitles are transparent.  Yes I copy off the IFO file from the DVD and it helps, but still 

What can I do to tweak this? If I copy off the vobsub then re-encode it, will I get better quality? 
How about an OGM? 
Can I tweak the source code? I don't know C, but I can sort of read it. Can someone tell me where to look? 

Any other suggestions? 
Thank you
