Title: Any simple tutorial on how to download CLIP Studi Paint and try it out?
Post by: SBerry on June 14, 2012, 10:09:25 PM
I've been browsing the threads here and am interested in trying this out.  A trial period would be fine.  It's clear though, after visiting the clipstudio website and using google translator, that I don't have a clue.  My presumption is I have to install some sort of language info on Windows for Japanese even to get it installed?  I dunno.  Mostly, I'd like to try this out, and I need some help.  I thought that perhaps having a thread where this info could be laid out for new users would be helpful-- both to myself and other future users.  If anyone is nice enough to share a step by step process, it would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello SBerry,

First you have to create an acount on the site.

Go to the main page (https://www.clip-studio.com/clip_site/).
On the top right, you'll find a link for the new users.
Click on this link.

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/thumbs/mini_446579731.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=446579731.jpg)

After clicking, a new page to create your acount will appear.

You have to fill it and register.
As I remember, you'll receive a message with a temporary password.
You have to use it to connect your acount and you will be able to change the pwd and some other things of your profile.

(http://img4.hostingpics.net/thumbs/mini_885561602.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=885561602.jpg)

To connect, it's also on top right of the page
(http://img4.hostingpics.net/thumbs/mini_409568973.jpg) (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=409568973.jpg)

Hope you'll understand my english. ^^

If I made a mistake, please someone correct it, thank you  ;)

You can use chrome to automaticly translate the website.. But the program may be a bit annoying to get through if you cant even get registered..

During the trial when it opens it will ask you, have like 2 long buttons.  One asks serial number and trial. Trial will ask for your account.

Thank you stackycake, that is a very helpful post. I know it must seem insane to people who have it up and running, but getting registered on their website and installing Clip Studio Paint is less than straightforward.  I'll try this out and see how it goes. Thanks again. :)

Ok, so I now have registered.  Received my email confirmation with what I can only presume is my temporary code-- an 8 digit alpha-numeric code, right?  I've downloaded the program as well.  I run the installer, and up pops the window where they clearly want me to put in my code for having purchased the program.  As I'm testing it out, I don't have that.  There are, however, others bars I can push.   Attached is a pic of that window.

My presumption from the tutorial is that the top one of them is for my email address or user name, and second one is for the 8 digit trial code, which I assume came in my email.  Is this true?  I've tried a lot of combinations with no success.  What's particularly unclear is that there are also two buttons at the bottom of that pop up, and neither one is in the tutorial.  The left is highlighted.  I've tried that one as well as the right one.  Help is appreciated if anyone has the inclination.

As for the tutorial on the website, I remember stumbling on it the other day, but haven't been able to find it again.  Rather than just laughing your ass off, you actually provide a link or something so that I (and others) could better help themselves?
edit-- found the tutorial.  For those interested, first you go to http://www.clipstudio.net/ (http://www.clipstudio.net/). Google translator translates this pretty well, but if you don't have that set up, you can still find the button for "Win" on the right, mid way down the screen. Here's the link for that too--   http://www.clip-studio.com/clip_site/download/clipstudiopaint/csptrial/index_win (http://www.clip-studio.com/clip_site/download/clipstudiopaint/csptrial/index_win).  Click it and it sends you to a relatively useful page, even if you don't have google translator, because it has pictures part way down that highlight which windows you can start clicking.  It helps, but I've still not gotten it to work, as my questions above point to.  But it might help others.

Finally, my presumption was that with the current translation available, I ought to be able to use the program atleast somewhat reasonably out of the gate.  Is version 1.02 making that a no go?  Or should what has already been translated and provided in the other thread still work on the new version?

Hmmm, that attachment of the installer window pop up didn't go through.  Here it is again.  I've edited the post above, so my additional questions are in there.

Here's the pop up I get when i follow the tutorial.  I can't seem to get past this window.  >:(

I am afraid it's a 'no go' and it won't work on the new version.
You'll need the previous version, the one Trev has been working on, if you want it in Eng.

I can't seem to get past this window.  >:(

Hmmmm...  Well, I got it to install somehow.  Frankly, I'm totally unsure of what I did differently this time.  LOL.

I went to uninstall CSP, and it says I have version 1.0.0, so who knows?  I'll try to follow the instructions for installing the translation, and see how it goes.

I wish I could remember what I did differently on that pop this time, but since it was sort of by accident I'm unsure.  Perhaps I actually clicked on the desktop icon and ran it as an administrator that time.  That could have been it.  If someone was to ask for advice in the future, that would be what I would suggest.

From your screenshot, I'm guessing you're on Windows Vista or 7?
If that's the case, then the CSP Ver.1.0.2 isn't available to you yet. It's only for Mac!
The Windows release will be public on June 27th.
The current translation files (ENG_0.2) should work fine with your trial!

Also, the normally highlighted button [次へ] means Next.
[キャンセル] means Cancel.

Hello there!

It looks like some of you already purchased CSP? I managed to register and download the demo, but now I would like to buy it and it seems really much more difficult ! I'm using chrome to translate but there are some parts I don't know what to write in (it is said that I have to use hiragana and katakana?). And I'm not sure I understood well the payment system (it's 500 yen per month during 8 months?) So if someone already purchased CSP could make a tutorial or just give me some advices (I know it takes time to make tutorials) ...

Sorry maybe it desserved a new topic. By the way, thanks a lot for the translation of CSP, it's very helpfull (and sorry for my english if it's bad...)

On the Clip site "gold" is basically their currency. You purchase it with a credit card or (in japan) You buy prepaid cards at mobile stores, convenient stores etc etc. One gold cost basically one yen.

The program cost 5000 yen so you could just purchase that amount of gold and buy the program.

Post by: Kosal on June 22, 2012, 12:38:29 PM
Ha ok, thanks for this information about the gold. I thought it was a mistake from google translation. Ok, I will try again. If I don't know how to fill the forms, maybe I should write random stuff. The most important is the mail and the credit card, I suppose ....

Post by: Toothless on July 02, 2012, 09:24:34 PM
...Yes.... with this: can someone please explain how exactly to purchase the gold needed?  I'm having a bit of trouble figuring that out myself orz  My browser doesn't get along with google translate

Post by: Kosal on July 02, 2012, 11:41:25 PM
My english is bad and I'm not completly sure of myself so I will try to explain what I did. I tried to buy CSP by clicking on all buttons that look like "buy buttons". Then, the website asked me to create a GOLD account, there were a lot a forms to fill and  I let some blanks (nothing about credit card at this time)... I closed the page because I was blocked (too many blank forms and didn't know what to write)  it but it looks like my GOLD account was already created ! So, now, When I just enter my login and password on the CSP website (the same that allowed me to download the demo) I can see that I have  "0 gold" and "50 CLIPPY" (I think clippy are like points and you can buy materials with it). If I click on "0 gold", I go to a page where I can manage my GOLD account. There is a GOLD button that will lead you to a page where you will be able to "buy" gold and use your credit card at last. For the moment, I did'nt buy anything because I have a japanese friend and I think I will do it with him.

Btw, for those interested, after I installed it, CSP wouldn't just start up when I clicked the icon.  Instead, I had to click it then go through a sort of "setup" each time.  It took me to the same pop-up window I discussed earlier.  After much trial and error, I discovered that by clicking the lower button instead of the upper one, it took me down a different path that then let me continue to use the program.  But that was something that was very unclear, and which had to be repeated each time.  So, I hope that's helpful to someone else who's trying out the program and doesn't want to buy it yet.

Hi all guys!

I have read all posts in this section before writing, and I have consulted all the tutorials to buy this program like this (http://goo.gl/WPzyO) and this (http://goo.gl/CTp8k)..

So, I have only one question: does the full version of Clip Studio Paint cost 5000¥ -> 5000 GOLD -> around 49 euros?
