I've tried several different tutorials and it still isn't working! >.< I'm trying to download some brushes and I've done everything you said to do, but - it isn't working. 'start-sai.exe' doesn't work for me so I've had to do it manually and it just won't work. I have Windows 8 installed. Is that a problem? >.<
Since you paid for it, I can help you. Its not the Start-sai thingy thats stuffing up but the file you needed to download when you bought the program. You need to re-download the Download Software License Certificate File
Find the email that you would have gotten when you bought Sai from Systemax; this should include a Software Licence Number, a Certificate Download Password. In the email there will be a link to: www.systemax.jp/en/license.htm… You copy and pasts the Software Licence Number and Certificate Download Password into their respective boxes. Now open up your Sai Program and under the "Others" drop down menu, click on the "System ID". Copy and paste this into the correct box on the systemax website. Click onto the "Download Software License Certificate" box. Once the file is downloaded, just move it into you Sai's program folder (you probably wont be able to open this file). Now restart sai.
I hope that helps If it doesn't, tell me what happens and I'll see if I can work out what's wrong xXChiXx
Ok i will do all that but because i had to use a different Email from someone else in my family ,they deleted the message is there a way to like possibly send another email back ? cuz im looking all over the site but i cant find anyway to resend the license and stuff..
Sorry for the late reply, and I apologies because i cant be of much help you will have to get in contact with systemax to get help as I had a look and cannot find anything on that too. Tell me how you go in the end
Okay, I'm probably a complete idiot, but I've looked at a few different tutorial and they don't seem to be helping me.
I have windows 8 on my computer and I have all the files you showed above. The brushes I downloaded I got from here, www.brusheezy.com/
Now I extracted all of them. In my downloads folder, the folder for sai has "Sai 1.1.0" and "Sai 1.1.0 + Brushes" (Both of those are inside the "Sai 1.1.0" folder within my downloads)
So I clicked on "Sai 1.1.0 + Brushes" and copy/pasted the extracted files into "elemap". I Right clicked on one of the brushes and chose to open it with Sai and to do the same for all the similar files. Now, when I open a new Sai document, I click on the drop-down (number 14 from your tutorial) and they can't be opened for some reason. I occasionally get an error pop-up that says something similar to "File not able to open" or to the point, it can't be opened with Sai....
sorry for the late reply, i havent been on dA for about a month DX anyway, Im trying to upload the start-sai file for u in another deviantation at the moment but either this computer (which is not my regular one) hates me or dA is getting revenge on me for being inactive for so long I will keep trying and notify you when i can work out how to get the file uploaded
Hi, I'm writing to let you know that I featured your tutorial in my Art Features journal [link] Please consider adding it to your favorites. Thank you for your time and the work you did in creating your Tutorial! ^o^
By clicking on the start-sai app, paint tool sai should open. but if it doesnt work try re-downloading the start-sai application. >< you can cheek if the brushes have downloaded by simply opening sai notmaly and they should be in the brushes drop-down menu. Try these and see if that helps ><
'start-sai' is a mini application that some sai brushes come with on dA. To get it just download one of the sets that I have in the authors comments. That all come with the app in the zip folder and you only need one copy of the application.
