Just tried to install it on my vista, ... i failed  T_T ... it prompts some windows and ofc i don't have a clue of what it wants, by the looks of screenshots Kaetemi  is using vista aswell, how on earth did you menage to install this thing? If there is a way to make a homemade translation of this thing, by editing iswResJ.dll how accessable does it become? I actually would love some features review here, since i am diying to know wether it is really as good as it looks, and if that homemade-rtanslation is possible, i don't mind buying it in Japanese and tweaking it.

EDIT: bleh, no its windows 7 your using :p , nvm but still how do you run it on a western OS?

Language for non-unicode programs should be set to "Japanese (Japan)" in the region settings of the control panel.
For translation file, mail me at kaetemi@gmail.com.

I'll have a community translation system up and running somewhere next week. (A client tool that finds the texts in the application files and patches them with the translation, together with a website which provides the translations, where you can also post better translations, with a simple voting system to provide the best translations to the users. Something like that. Will be usable for pretty much any program.)

May be we shouldn't blow it to cosmic proportions just yet, Something tells me the original creators of Illust Studio won't be too happy knowing a homemade translation is circelling the net.  On the other hand it may give them the push in the right direction to offer Eng client support, ( atm even if i ever succed in instlling and understanding the features i still doubt i will be able to buy the licence >.>)

I dont think that its against any laws to make such a great product accessable to the rest of the world. Its  actually quite in their favor  :)

Its inevitable, it was for paint tool sai and it worked very well for it- it became very popular early before its author made it in english. I think that if it wasnt for the popularity it gained early on thanks to the fan translation, it's author wouldnt have made it available to the rest of the world via paypal.

I too would like to purchase a license to use it,but only after seeing its possible to get it in english!

Hmmm... did any1 considered writing Celsys a letter? followed by some soort of petition ( i am pretty sure if you put a petition for this on DA you'll get plenty singatures) requesting an eng version + client support? Ofc this is just a silly idea that just pooped out of my silly head :p

Oki, thanks to godlike Kaetemi, i menaged to get it running here, well... i was dying to try  it out, so here is a little review:
With this homemade translation it is very very accessable, plus if you know your away around with Manga Studio this will look for ~60% familiar,. Is it really that good as i was expecting it to be? *shrugs* dunno... really do not know... it surely is good, i think i even love it, but meh :S even tho this is a trial version and lots of  options are unavailible, ( like the freaggin save option >.> *sigh* ) anyways...

Pencils: bleh... suck doggy balls imo, but w/e paper & regular pencil ftw.
Inks: have dropped down from heaven! <3 big time!
Brushes: are also damn good, have been looking for a way to create custom tip, but no luck so far, though they surely are damn great as they are,  devine color blending!
Gradients: oki, Ps is better.
Bucket!: ooh that is one lil wicked bucket! :D <3
Filters: hmm... rather have PS, but it has perspective drawing aid! so... 50/50
Computones have to be installed separetely,  found only junk in material folder.
Dumdidum... so generally...

' _ ' I can imagine how different it is from SAI.
Like driving a small coupe and suddenly change to F1 =A=

Totally!

Here is my lil test doodle:

Go to the celcys clip website, and request a full trial key (Somewhere, on one of the pages there's a button, click it, you'll get a mail with a key, it might arrive in your spam). Trials are currently valid until the 30th September.

EDIT: If you're logged in on that website, there's a button on this url: http://www.clip-studio.com/clipstudio/tooltop/template/IllustStudio click it.

Well somebody needs to post the installer on Rapidshare because even though I register it won't allow me to log in at all.  I have even gotten password in email, no luck.

Two questions regarding the UI.

Does it rotate the page like in SAI Space+ALT?

And can you live resize the brushes like SAI, Painter... Control+Alt?

Yups,
Rotate = R
Brush Size = ctrl+alt + drag your stylus
but I believe you can set any key binding you want.

this is truly a great piece of software. the more i get to know it, the more i am loving it. The translation is good enough to understand it and its A LOT. Kaetemi did a great job. It still does need some editing- like the name of the layer types- rasteru=raster, and so on..  there are a few kanji items as well. God, this is going to be so awesome when it gets fully translated. There is even a 3d layer with a pose-able model and the option to import 3d media!  ;D

the selection tool can act as a bucket and has an interesting gui that lets you easily expand selection and other stuff.

In its filters I especially liked the watercolor effect filter.

This thing is packed with goods
