PaintTool SAI For Mac OS X [Now For 10.9 - 10.10] by pelsky PaintTool SAI For Mac OS X [Now For 10.9 - 10.10] by pelsky
UPDATE/EDIT ON 1/8/2012 :
WARNING ; The previous Port will NOT WORK On the new Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 , i tested it on Mountain Lion and its not working .. and i will work on a fix for it soon .. and as soon as it fixed .. i will link it here :)

UPDATE/EDIT ON 21/8/2012:
Finally found a way to port SAI to make it work on OS X Mountain lion , and the Update link is above! (its The same app but made for ML , literally not an Update)

UPDATE/EDIT ON 1/11/2012:
I recently found out that the links arent working (blocked or something.) so i just updated them so you can download the port :)

UPDATE/EDIT ON 12/12/2012:
Sorry for the broken links :c , All The links will be updated very shortly to MediaFire, PotLoad Or to my Dropbox.

UPDATE/EDIT ON 24/6/2014:
Hey guys!, I'm very happy to see that we're about to cross 100k views for the PaintTool SAI port! Which is amazing!
For people who are having issues with the port, the app won't open because the application is not compatible with OS X 10.9 yet, and i don't have the ability to update it because i don't own a mac anymore (since i broke my own Macbook pro 2 years ago), but i will try to see if i can update the application very soon if i could borrow a mac or something, the updating process doesn't take time but i only need a mac to do the update.

I'm very sorry for not doing updates for a very long time but it doesn't mean that i'll ditch the updates! I'll be making some very soon.

★UPDATE/EDIT ON 11/1/2015:
Hey guys!, the update for both OS X Mavericks (10.9) AND OS X Yosemite (10.10) is finally here! Download is available in the new link below!
Note: -you may notice that SAI's window might be shaking/stuttering when you move it over the desktop, that is a very normal bug that couldn't be solved, but it doesn't affect the app's performance.
         -In case you want to add textures or to do anything with the app's program folder, please:    1- Click right on SAI's icon, then choose (Show Package Contents)
                                                                                                                                                    2- Navigate to (drive_c/Program Files/PaintTool SAI English Pack)
                                                                                                                                                    3- Here you go!, you can add textures and stuff here.

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
KNOWN ISSUES (Updated info)

Pen Pressure will NOT WORK WITH ANY OF THE RELEASES ABOVE, PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION:
There is no possible way to integrate pen pressure support into the application because it requires to have .NET framework (4.0 or above) installed into the wineskin wrapper AND the tablet drivers which depends on the tablet you own, which will increase the file's size (at least 5 or 6 times larger since i need to put all the possible tablet drivers into the wrapper, and that won't make any sense), even with the .NET framework files installed, pen pressure won't work because of the absence of the tablet drivers, I know you're most likely going to have the tablet drivers installed into your mac, but it won't bring the pen pressure to work because the app itself runs a mini-Windows environment inside your mac, which requires it's own tablet drivers inside the app itself.


Latest & Previous Version Ported through Wineskin Winery
First Version Ported Through CXEx Ivory Wrapper

The problem with PTSai on mac is that pen pressure does not egsist. There's no option for programist to translate it for mac, so you have to work with different brush size.

To all of the users of Painttool Sai Mac, this is a small update on the process of updating Painttool to OSX EI Capitan.

Currently I'm running OS X on a virtual computer on my Windows PC, but i have failed to update it, I'm still looking for a way to update it to be able to repack the original Sai app into a new Mac wrapper which could fix all the current bugs with errors and pasting items.

There is still no way to obtain pen pressure in the app, since it's a hardware thing, and a Windows app inserted in a Mac wrapper will not be able to use the Mac drivers for your preferred digitizer/tablet (Wacom...etc)

If you read the whole thing, they say pressure just doesn't work with this app on Mac at all and that it's inevitable.

anybody know any dupes for SAI? I'm primarily interested in the Layers feature and having just as many brush options, as I'm sure so many of us art-coholics are... let me know if y'all figure out a way. <3

My version works but has issues with drawing lines (I use Yosamite.) The lines basically look as though they are lagging or something. They turn out sharp and jagged instead of smooth and curved, The jaggedness increases with the speed I draw the line. Everything else is fine though.
