Has anyone already done all the conf "brushwhatever\file name.bmp" stuff already? Because this process looks very time consuming...Sorry. I'm just a bit lazy and copy and pasting is the easiest thing in the world to do. If no one has bothered, I'll just get to typing it myself...

You need to download additional brushes, e.g. from here: fav.me/d8ggrtt

I can't open brushform.conf, I get a popup saying "Windows cannot open this file". And I've done this before and it worked but I reinstalled windows months ago and haven't messed with Sai so I don't remember how I did it. All I know is I was able to open the file fine before but now I can't.

you click on the brushtex program and select 'other programs to open with' and scroll until you find notepad and type in the codes for your brushtex. Then click save even if it says 'it will change the format' it worked for me I hope it works for you <3

If your clicking on the image, there's your issue hun. If you go back out of the file, that's where you'll see a little program named 'brushform' = that's where you put in the names okay : 3

oh and i already dragged the brushes into the correct folders to begin with, but they're not showing up on sai or in the .conf
thats why i decided to do it manually bc it was being a bitch

try clicking on 'save as' and then choose 'All formats' and type '.conf' (without the ' ) behind the file name.

press yes. if your sai doesn't work anymore then, then I can send you my .conf file if you want.

It's literally a 6-step process. It shouldn't take more than five minutes depending on the amount of brushes you're trying to add. Maybe you should try making sure everything's correct before calling it a waste of time.

Usually there's a "Save as..." option that allows you to change the file type.

I didn't understand anything... Where dö I find Scar? And the third step didn't make any sense for me, where do I find the the files that I'm supposed to drag?
Reply
:iconwhitefang135:
whitefang135 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Scar is probably a downloaded brush, hence why you couldn't find it within the default brushes (sorry if that sounded rude ^^;)

As for step 3, (hoping I make sense) the files would be in the brush pack(s) you would download. You basically drag whatever's in those files into the Paint Tool SAI files like blotmap, etc.

Again, I hope it makes sense...........I usually suck at explaining. ^^;

Hmm. Perhaps try Notepad++, it's freeware and a much more better alternative to notepad. That's what I use, anyways.

I don't know if this will help anyone or not, but even after following all the steps in the tutorial, the brushes still didn't show up for me. It turns out that, when I added some brushes with Japanese names and Note Pad suggested I change the encoding from ANSI to Unicode so that it could save the Japanese characters, SAI doesn't like Unicode encoding, for whatever reason. So I clicked Save As... and changed the encoding (next to the save button) to ANSI for the .conf files and it worked again, then I renamed the Japanese files to have English names. Hope this helps!
