Help installing custom sai (v2) brushes

BigMoneyFlavaMonsta Featured By Owner May 22, 2020  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello! I've been looking through other forum posts and videos and I can't seem to solve the issue.
I have my sai brushes in the folder that I think they're supposed to be in but they don't show up in sai v2.
Thank you in advance!
brush textures in papertex folder
brushes not appearing in sai

You have the textures in your folder, but you need to manually create the brush. I am guessing from your screenshot you need to greate another PEN brush and then chance the settings like you see in the screenshot. That's the way you import brushes in sai. Or that's the way I do it. :dummy: 

I had no problem creating the brush :3  Erewrwe by RaikaiRan

1. right click on an empty spot of your brush palette. 
2. Choose Pencil and create a new one.
3. Than chance the settings and brushform and texture. 

( I hope my shitty english can help XD)

I think I have an idea. the new version of painttool sai 2 has it's folders in documents. try to look there for a folder that is called: SYSTEMAX Software Development.

your pc - documents - systemax software development - sai2 - settings. there you find the papertex and the brushtex folders. the new version od sai moves the folders to documents the first time you start ist. but it also has the folders where you installed it. a bit confusing D: but it only works in documents. try to copy them in these folders. maybe this will work :dummy:
