If you are new to all this SAI stuff and trying to select what is better for you, please read about advantages of this pack:




I decide to stop distribute my own language.conf file, because it is different from official ("Layer Set" <-> "Folder" for example), and beginners has problems with this.

Well, I've never tried the official translation, but the fan-made one seems to work pretty well for me! I can't imagine that the official translation would be much better! x3

I think I found a problem with the fan translated menu file.  The rotate, hand and eye dropper tool:

The official translation labels these in English correctly.

I have both versions.  The wording is a bit different between them.  Especially in the point edit menu.  Although the icons I pointed out are pretty self-explanatory.

No, SAI available only for Windows.
You can either install Windows via BootCamp or install Windows using some virtual machine.

Post by: TwistedRoses on July 30, 2008, 02:43:33 AM
So major advantage of the fan made pack is that, it doesn't have a trial date because it is free? I'm sure my question has already been answered. ^^; But I just wanna ask anyway.
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: Ren on July 30, 2008, 04:01:48 AM
Nope, the translation itself is free of course, but you have to buy Sai to actually use it :3

So then the full verison is so much better, how much is it for the americans. I like this program a lot.

I don't have the smarts to convert yen to dollars.
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack

Just type "5250 yen to usd" or "5250 yen to eur" (without quotes) into google ;)

Are there any translations for SAI v1.0.3? I have no idea what the new layer methods mean since they are in gibberish (my OS is in English and doesn't display the Japanese characters correctly) not that if they where in Japanese I would have a clue anyway.
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: parfhelbelia on September 01, 2008, 10:36:57 AM
"_language.conf" or something like this included with official
rename it to language.conf and remove _language_ja.conf

Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: broken-moon14 on September 28, 2008, 07:29:14 PM
 so if you pay for the full version is there still a time trial on it
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: Ren on September 28, 2008, 09:18:00 PM
No, of course not!
Once you pay you get a code to use with Sai and the trial period disappears :3
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: Bunni on October 08, 2008, 06:12:39 AM
On one of my computers, I downloaded Sai 1.01.
So if I buy it, I would have to uninstall Sai 1.01, download Sai 1.00 from the official site, and download the language.conf?

My Sai also expired, so I guess if I buy it, the trial thing would be gone forever?
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: sgiff on October 16, 2008, 06:29:04 PM
No just register, get a license code from the download site and paste it in the application folder and your good to go.  You don't need to uninstall anything.

umm, hello.

sorry to bother you,
but i'm so freaking new to the digital art world,
and am considering the paint tool sai.

this is what i've gathered from browsing:

i purchase the license to have the sai program and download the program itself,
and then i download this translation guy,
and then...

stuff.

any help for a totally clueless artist hoping to use sai to launch into digital artwork?
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: parfhelbelia on January 10, 2009, 05:11:20 AM
replace your language.conf with restorer's file
place SAI digital license file e.g. "00000numbersblahblah.slc" in your SAI folder and ENJOY
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: BAMchick96 on November 07, 2009, 12:11:39 PM
I was wondering if The fan made version has to be bought like software license or is it free download
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: Ren on November 07, 2009, 01:10:42 PM
Nope, the fan made translation is free to download!

Post by: narutaki on November 25, 2009, 12:34:58 AM
Hi Dunno if this is the right place to ask

is the software itself included ? or is it just the language file ?
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: Blaze on December 27, 2009, 03:32:24 AM
Um, this has probably already been asked, but when you download it, do you need the real SAI already downloaded?  Because when I try to open mine it says something about Administrator needed or something like that.  Help?
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: restorer on December 28, 2009, 03:32:32 PM
narutaki, if you will spend a second and click "[Read more...]" next to "PaintTool SAI English Pack 1.1.0 Full" on home page, you will see message: "This installer will install english pack, sai programm itself and necessary shortcuts." - yep, software included.

Blaze, real SAI (latest version from official site) is included into Full pack.
Quote
Because when I try to open mine it says something about Administrator needed or something like that
If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, than:
1) Don't install SAI into Program Files. Install it into any other folder (D:\software, C:\software or something other)
2) Yep, when SAI starts first time, it need Admin rights. Right click on SAI executable, than click "Run as administrator"

Post by: tamanegi on January 03, 2010, 04:12:51 AM
I downloaded the paint tool sai from here, and I have a question.
is this the trial one that disappers in like 30 days or this last forever.
because in the Japanese SAI site they let peple download their trial one but for only 30 days.

thanks :D
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: restorer on January 03, 2010, 05:19:57 PM
This version has no differences from original one (except additional brushes and textures), so yep, it is 30 day trial.
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: vickaronomie on January 14, 2010, 07:43:42 PM
Hello, I've been using your version for a while... and now that I have the money to purchase the liscense, I'm scared to death that I might be buying something non-compatible.

So let me get this straight--This translation of Paint Tool Sai is like a PATCH? which comes with the original software underneath it as well... And I can buy the license and put it into the appropriate folder of... the English Pack? And it will work?


I'm just trying to make sure it will; I've read the other posts about this and I don't think I will rest easy until I ask for myself. Because I'm stupid like that. ;D

EDIT!!
Okay nevermind--once and for all I've discovered that downloading the file and simply placing it into the Paint Tool Sai Program Folder works for reals.

I'm sorry it seems so difficult for so many people to grasp, I think everyone might just be afraid of getting scammed or are just afraid that foreign software might not work. No scam, here. I understand now; the program is essentially an edited version of the original, so therefore, no difference.

Thanks! Sorry for being another typical "what's this ohnoes I'm so confused!" person. ;D

I meant it works, but when I download your fan version, it apparently completely forgets I have the full version, temporarily disabling all SAI programs. The only way to fix it is to delete your thing, but then I can't use the features on yours (like transparency).
Title: Re: Advantages and disadvantages of this fan-made pack
Post by: restorer on July 25, 2011, 01:47:53 AM
When you install 2 SAI versions, it is totally unrelated versions.
When one version can be registered, second can be trial.
You must download license file for each version and put license file in all installed SAI versions.

Good! I tried Windows 8, but the driver support for Wacom tablets is so bad!
It introduces cursor lag, random double clicks, right click drag has slow down, right click doesn't even work in some applications and there's tons of other issues (just check their forums (http://forum.wacom.eu/viewforum.php?f=2)!). You can't fully disable the integrated Microsoft tablet features like Ripple cursor!

The shocking thing is, Wacom blame Microsoft and Microsoft blame Wacom... and still nothing has been done to fix the drivers since Win8 was released!
I was forced to roll back to Win7.

Wow, that is unfortunate...  Is that specific for certain tablets?  I'm using a Bamboo Capture and haven't had any issues in windows 8 myself...  Using the 5.3.2-1 Driver for Windows 8.
