About possible translation - it reminds me first versions of SAI v1.X.
Strings are not in resources and embedded directly.
Translation is possible, but it will not be easy thing.

Well it is nice to see them moving forward with SAI.  The text addition is nice though it is on a raster layer.  And being a demo it's missing a lot of features.  The straight line and curve drawing tools or selection rulers look interesting but will they be really useful?

Wow, I almost missed this thread! Thanks for the news.

Max canvas size for 64-bit version is 100000x100000 pixels! Wow, if it is as fast as the version 1, it will be a real pleasure.
Brush size limit is 5000 pixels now also.
Max number of layers has been increased from 256 to 8190  :o
It supports Microsoft Ink API (TabletPC) so it will be possible to use it on any Windows tablet (x86) now.

It is obviously an early version with only few features activated, I will need to check for updates.

Thanks for the info. I'd love to give it a try (if in english...), shame they changed how languages are handled in a way that makes translations more challenging :( They are only hurting their overseas sales potential, sad really.

The Perspective ruler addition is of particular interest to me

Well programs like Clip Studio have it and it really helps if you want to do environments in perspective from different angles, something that is really difficult to do in a drawing program UNLESS it has a dedicated perspective tool.

Good day, nice people!
I really excited about new SAI, but could someone explain me one thing?
Are they really will provide users with update for free? I tried to translate with Google japanese text from the official site and understood nothing. Are there any restrictions of this update? Thank you if someone could explain me that.

Can anybody compare this to what is already available in Clip Studio Paint EX? Like what the max amount of layers, brush size pixels, etc. I remember seeing it, but it's been a good year or so since I've tested Clip and can't remember what they are. I've recently switched to Linux, and Clip isn't supported on it.

Thanks guys!  ;D

I have reached out to them via e-mail about the possibility for more language options in SAI 2.0 now that they have moved to a format that makes translations by hobbyists more difficult.

I am not expecting an ideal answer but I think any show of support for English/other options shows the demand and is worth taking the time to do. If anyone else feels the same way, you can easily find the address to reach them at their site.

SAi 1.1 is offered in english but I don't believe 1.2 builds are english (yet?), wondering what this means for 2.x

I'll post any answer I get here.

Has anyone tried this on a multi-touch screen?  Does it work?  Or is it still made for non-touch devices?  I don't have MT on my tablet, and so can't tell.

I must say, having played with this, that I'm excited.  It's as fast as ever, which is wonderful, but some bugs have been fixed too (I always had issues binding certain keys to pen buttons, for instance).  The 64 bit compatabiliity is also very nice.  It was easy to move around a huge canvas, etc.  Brushes at huge sizes were wonderful too-- even blending ran smoothly up to 1000!  That's really big for what is normally a pretty CPU-intensive task, and I'm not running it on a desktop.

I also noticed they've improved some of the texture dynamics-- before, the brush textures would scale with the brush size, but now I noticed that the texture scale remains the same and it's just the brush head that increases.  This allows me to over a huge swatch of area, but to have the textural affect of a canvas background still read true.  My memory is that this wasn't the case in Sai 1.1.  I love the ease with which you can construct Sai's 2-texture brush method, and then throw in a background texture (what is essentially a texture on Overlay) on the Layers panel. Quick, easy, and very effective.  If he could just include some good geometrical tools, this would probably replace SBP for me too.  Still, seems like a wonderful improvement anyways!

Having this in English would be awesome.  I would be wonderfully grateful.

Post by: Zulith on December 29, 2013, 02:38:11 AM
The developer was kind to reply to my e-mail. English version will be available when it is final. Maybe not surprising, but as he is a 1-man team there is no time to accommodate this for development builds, he says.

Great news, but as we know with SAI 1.x, the time between official releases can be significant, leaving English users in the cold. So thank you, restorer, for your efforts.

wow.  i really cannot be any happier for the scrollbar in the part of the user interface that has the color and brush setings, etc.  it was so annoying having to close tools sections to reach the bottom part XD

One of the biggest reasons i like sai though is because u can use pattern brushes on large scale without the program lagging really bad.

Post by: jakobdam on February 26, 2014, 01:02:46 PM
I was SO happy to see this - SAI v2 - yay!!! :D

And it works fine in that beta version; but: The latest beta is still from 2013-12-10 - so yeah, there's apparantly long between updates.

I guess we'll just have to be patient. I won't mind paying those ~50 USD again for Paint Tool SAI - heck, I'd even be willing to pay more for an English v2 final, especially if it features swatch sets than can be stored and loaded (that's the only issue I have with SAI v1, part from the usual stability issues).

I'm working on SAI2 translation, but I can't say when it will be ready.
I'm not sure how your translation is working out, but if anyone cares I've started working on one as well. I'm aiming to complete this translation in a few weeks. It just depends on how much time I have to spend on it. Of course, when it updates I'll have to do it all over again, but updates aren't very frequent so I guess it's not a complete waste of time. xD

No problem. I had been waiting for an update from Restorer on his translation, but since the status of his translation is currently unknown and there has yet to be any new build releases of SAI 2, I figured I'd just translate it myself. xD

It's coming along quite well so far. After working on it off and on today I finished up patching in translations for all of the menus. Needless to say, there is still quite a bit left to be done, but I'm making steady progress. n_n

(The credit for the translation is temporary. It won't be there on release of the English patch so don't worry. n_n)

hey restorer and raccoon, can i ask what you're using to input the translations into the program? i've kicked around the idea of doing my own translation, but i have no idea how to get started as 2.0 is a standalone .exe at the moment...

I took a little break to work on some other projects, but today I returned to working on this translation.

I could try to explain it, but this isn't really the place for that and there is a lot to explain. However, I am considering making a video on this subject. If I do create one it will be up in a couple of days. I'll send you a private message to let you know. n_n

Until then, I can at least answer your question as to what I'm using without having to go off on a 10 paragraph long tangent. I'm using OllyDbg.

This will be the last update that I will be posting here. I won't be posting anything more about this translation until I have completed it and have everything ready for release.

There's not a whole lot to say about it, but I've made a fair amount of progress and tool names no longer get cut off (when I first patched in the translations for the tool names, they got cut off, but I've resolved that issue).

Hi all,
when I tried installing SAI 2 from the link provided on this thread I get an error message.

Attached are the error message and the error log in case anyone needs it for troubleshooting purposes.

I tried installing it as an administrator but failed. I understand that the application itself is in Japanese, but I am hoping to play around with it, and see how it works on Surface Pro 1 and Surface Pro 3.

Thanks,

Hi all,
when I tried installing SAI 2 from the link provided on this thread I get an error message.
That error message states that the program has performed an illegal operation.

I was getting the same error for a while, but realized that SAI 2 functioned normally as long as I had my tablet connected prior to starting SAI 2. It also functioned normally after uninstalling the driver for my tablet.

So if you're still having trouble, it might be worth making sure your tablet is actually connected before starting SAI 2 or uninstalling the driver for your tablet. I can't really guarantee that this will help though.

There is an English translation available here (http://sai.detstwo.com/forum/index.php/topic,2448.0.html).

There has been an update to SAI 2 (2015-01-02). It's available for download now on the development page (http://www.systemax.jp/ja/sai/devdept.html). ;D

Time for a new English translation. I'll be providing both a 32-bit and 64-bit patch this time around haha.

Edit: Actually, Koji appears to be providing an English release of the update as well! n_n It's not perfect, but neither was mine haha.

If you want to download the English release just click the "English" link in the upper right corner of the page. ;P

There are a lot of new features AND saving so go get it. x3

Get the new system ID from your Sai 2 install (under the Help menu), then use the same form and registration details from your Sai 1.x purchase to get the Sai 2 license file.

Hi everyone!
I have the same question as misspigeon! I haven't understood where is the form obtusity's talking about @@ can you help me? I really want to purchase this new SAI, it's absolutely amazing and perfect!

Also, do you think I have to wait for the finished version or I can buy it right now? I saw there's something missing, as the swatches, some tools (binary pen etc) and layer mode (luminosity, shade etc), do you think it's because it's a restricted version ?_?
Title: Re: Paint Tool SAI 2.0 available for download
Post by: obtusity on February 12, 2015, 11:18:03 PM
You can't buy it yet, you have to wait for the finished version. 

If you have purchased version 1.x (version 1.0,1.1,or 1.2), you can use the version 1.x license number and password (sent to you by Systemax after you paid for version 1.x) to download a licence file (see the Download Software License Certificate link on the main Sai web page) and unlock saving and opening files in the version 2 beta test, exactly the same as you would have done to download a licence file to convert the version 1.x trial to a full legal version. 

Version 2 is unfinished - what will be in the finished version, nobody knows (except maybe at Systemax).
