This might just be my computer, but when I try to add the files nothing happens. I deleted the previous folders and they still wouldn't add nor could I restore it.

It's confusing at first.
Make sure you have the WinRar file open, click on sai tools>How to install
Click on it and a text document will open, explaining how to do the installations, and will give you the file NAME that you have to look for and find under the winrar files called resources
Look for the brush you want, in this situation, we'll go with the square brush.
In the instructions document under square brush it says
"Square Brush:
- toolnrm\04.ini
- elemap\Square.bmp"

go to Resources>toolnrm
Now that you are finally in the toolnrm file, look for a file that says "04.ini"
Back to your actual SAI files...Click on toolnrm as well
Drag the "04.ini" to your sai file called toolnrm (There should be a number of brushes named 00-19)
Your computer will ask if you want to move and replace the file, don't move, or move and keep both files because these two files have the same number, simply click "Move, but keep both files" Now in this case, the file will be 04 (2)

right click on 04 (2) and rename it to be 20

moving on to Elemaps...Back to WinRar, click on the file "..." to go back to a menu that hase the file names "Blotmap" "Elemap" and "toolnrm"

click on elemap (go back on your actual sai file and click on elemap as well)
The instructions that come with this tutorial tell you which blotmap, elemap, or toolnrm to use, in this case.."Square.bmp"
Drag "Square.bmp" to the elemap file in your sai files.

In a couple cases, that is your final step, and you are officially ready to use this brush in SAI! But in quite a few cases, there is one last and final step

Scroll down in your instructions until you see the following--
"2. For some tools you need to edit brushform.conf\brushtex.conf as well (don't add it twice if you already have it):"

This is actually a quite easy procedure
On your SAI file, you will see "brushform"
Click it (Please note that this is a text document as well)
You will see many brush names that end with ".bmp" That means you are on the right file
Go back you your instructions and look for the brush you are using, to see if you have to add your brush BMP
If you see your brush and it says "For "Square Brush" append this to the brushform.conf:" Look right below it and copy the configuration text
In my case, (the square brush) it would be "2,elemap\Square.bmp"
paste that into your "Brushform" text, save it
and voila! you are finished!
I hope this helped somewhat for you guys.

Just wondering if you know anything about Sai's usage of elemaps. Mine (version 1.1.0) does not seem to be using them. Do you know what I should look for? The are noted in the .conf files.

If you are using a drawing tablet, lower the "Min Size" to get that fade out effect with every stroke.

If you are using a mouse, create the line, then select "Pressure", and reduce the thickness of each point in the line by dragging on it.

Note that when using the mouse, you can only reduce the pressure of Linearts, bot brushes

Thanks, Iris-hime! These brushes are a lot of fun. Just a heads up: The elemap file is called "Bristle_thick.bmp" but the how to install.txt says to add "2,elemap\Thick_bristle.bmp" to the brushform.conf. It needs to be "2,elemap\Bristle_thick.bmp". Thanks again for making these! I switched over from Painter 11 to SAI and was missing some of the variety.

I am having some problems with these sets. I have followed your instructions, is it possible that these packs dont work with the japanese version? i am not sure what to do.

:iconiris-hime:
Iris-hime Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, this could be the case. I don't know whether the Japanese version handle files in its native language or not. Can you confirm it to me? Open any .ini file and tell me which language is in it. If it's Japanese - then those tools are for English version only.

I'm sorry for bugging you, but when I downloaded it, and I found the "How to Install.txt" and I read it and did what I thought it was saying, but the strange part is that it's there on the SAI program, and I can click on it, but then when I try to draw on line art, it won't let me :iconlazycryplz:

Is there some way of fixing that? And I'm really sorry for bugging you!

Tools for line art layers don't work on regular layers and vice versa.
