Q. It is free?
A. English pack, launcher, brushes, translation - it all for free. Program itself is not free, is trialware.
Q. So major advantage of the fan made pack is that, it doesn't have a trial date because it is free?
A. Ren: Nope, the translation itself is free of course, but you have to buy Sai to actually use it :3
Q. My trial ended what can I do ?
A. hmmm... buy it?
Q. So if you pay for the full version is there still a time trial on it
A. Ren: No, of course not! Once you pay you get a code to use with Sai and the trial period disappears :3
Q. 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?
A. sgiff: 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.
Q. 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.
A. This version has no differences from original one (except additional brushes and textures), so yep, it is 30 day trial.
Q. I purchase the license to have the sai program and download the program itself, and then i download this translatio, and then...
A. parfhelbelia: Replace your language.conf with restorer's file. place SAI digital license file e.g. "00000numbersblahblah.slc" in your SAI folder and ENJOY
Q. Is the software itself included ? or is it just the language file ?
A. 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.
Q. Um, this has probably already been asked, but when you download it, do you need the real SAI already downloaded?
A. Real SAI (latest version from official site) is included into Full pack.
Q. When I try to open mine it says something about Administrator needed or something like that. Help?
A. Yep, when SAI starts first time, it need Admin rights. Right click on SAI executable, than click "Run as administrator"
Q. And I can buy the license and put it into the appropriate folder of... the English Pack? And it will work?
A. Yep, you can do it
Q. I have both of paint tool sai do i have to pay for both of them?
A. Nope. please read original license (on japanese site) for more information about licensing.
Q. Does anyone know ifthe fan-made version is compatible with the new mac os?
A. No, SAI available only for Windows. You can either install Windows via BootCamp or install Windows using some virtual machine.
Q. I don't have the smarts to convert yen to dollars.
A. Kaetemi: Just type "5250 yen to usd" or "5250 yen to eur" (without quotes) into google
Q. Whenever I try to start SAI after I buy it, my computer says that I can't open it because it's a file that my computer can't use. It's a .SLC file btw
A. You should download this .slc file somewhere, than copy&paste it in SAI installation folder (it can be "C:\Program Files\Paint Tool Sai English Pack", "C:\Documents And Settings\<User name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Zame\Paint Tool SAI English Pack" or wherever you install it).
