SAI General / Re: Wacom Bamboo ( Help )
« on: January 09, 2009, 01:26:40 AM »
Some people report this happen.
If your really did what's written before and still the cursor is dead - it could mean a hard/soft issue.
Try this:
0. Unplug.
1. Uninstall wacom drivers.
2. Reinstall 'em following the instructions taht come with wacom soft. When pluggin' - take a good usb wire and plug your tablet directly to usb controller (without hubs and other crap), maybe you'd want to try different usb port.
3. If it didn't work - I don't know. Check windows usb subsystem. Get a clean windows installation. Get another pc. etc

SAI General / Re: Opening .sai and .psd file troubles
« on: January 09, 2009, 01:15:46 AM »
File corruption shouldn't happen normally. Never happened with me and the folks I know.
Sometimes video-out window (on screen) is filled with garbage after certain operations (it's due to known issues with Sai's memory management) but it woun't lead to corrupted file when saved. Never happened to me. And I did nasty things like 50 layers in 350dpi A4 when <file>.sai weighted over 250Mb.
1. Could be host OS + rare hard.conf  issue. You should report this.
2. Could be super-rare hardware issue.
4. Could be unknown Sai's issue.
3. U could screw your file with your own hands by some yet to be discovered secret konami key combinations that mysteriously led to empty canvas. Once I pressed "d" and "ctrl+s".

SAI General / Re: Straight lines?
« on: January 09, 2009, 01:02:48 AM »
Yeah, I want some stuff implemented in PTS too.
For now create a vector layer. Draw a line. Add points. Modify pressure for them. Rasterize.

SAI General / Re: Resolution question
« on: January 09, 2009, 12:57:53 AM »
That's your regular dpi stuff. Doesn't mean a thing if you know the target resolution in pixels.
If you "aim" for physical dimensions like cm/mm/inches (for printing) - then you set the lin.dimensions and set the dpi that latter defines how many actual pixel there would be.
e.g. "I must haev 5"x5" picture" "For printing me wantz to see 300 pixels in one inch so taht me imagez loox coool". "Oooh lawd, now I haes (5x300)^2=1500^2 pixels in tis imaeg!"

SAI General / Re: Certain brushes
« on: January 09, 2009, 12:48:47 AM »
Well, can't do it the easy way. Duplicate ... or learn how to manipulate config files.
Missing - what? There's a pen tool for sure. Yet actually, PTS seems to use similiar engines for tools and that's a problem, cause besides speed, I'd like to haev some engines implemented that can be found in oC and Painter/Artweaver.

Wierd. It should work.
Check the settings.
Does it work with other sotware?
If not - maybe driver reinstall would help the case.

SAI General / Re: Memory problems

Sai's interface usability is what I really like. Though stability issues sometimes bug me real hard.
Check Artweaver - it's free so you can try it without any problems. (http://www.artweaver.de/index.php?en_version). Artweaver is designed to replace Painter, so you can find a lot of brushes and settings for "real-life-feel" painting and realistic brush simulation. I found Artweaver more stable then Sai (memory management is good) BUT not as convenient to use. And it's oriented for "painting", while Sai's more suitable for "drawing".

Unplug the tablet.
Completely uninstall its drivers & software.

SAI General / Re: Questions regarding purchase
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:55:32 AM »
Oh god, you had money to buy PS but still use trial ver of Sai.
Sai's key-file depends on your system id, sys id remains the same until you reinstall OS.
And dammit, you can load new licence files every day, with new sys-id.

SAI General / Re: Memory problems
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:49:09 AM »
Bug? Oh yes it IS a bug and it sometimes keeps bugging me too. Yeah, in some situations you cannot rotate/flip a layer because it says smt liek "not enough memory", and that IS poor memory management. I sometiems get this kind of error when working with max possible resolution. If you get this crap of all the times - strange, try other image dimensions. Or you could use Paint.Net for image manipulation and Sai - for painting only.
English Sai's board is right here. The one on Sai's homepage is avaliable in Japanese only. Yet I have reported problems and issues with Sai to its author, using his native language. It was a long time ago but no reaction followed. Now Sai's development seems stalled - it is quite possible that the author is stuck somewhere around Hawaii, drinking soda+vodka, playing blackjack with ... ghrm... girls 24/7 and he'll be back as soon as he spends all the money Sai's already brought 'im.

General Discussion / Re: Free program to draw Manga

Nice!
We'll wait.
Since Sai's author is probably drinking his Vodka+Soda mix on Hawaii's most expesive resort, having blackjack & hoockers 24/7, it'll be ages untill his cash runs out and he returns to working on Sai again, we have to move on and see some other software.

Djangle, it could be a hardware issue (liek RAM modules CRC fail), could be in-os software conflicts, could also be some very rare unreported hardware configuration issue.
Try installing on another pc -- should work.
If you're not good with in-depth computer shit, you could just go and reinstall Windows, that may help, if nothing else works.
