Thank you, I appreciate it :)
Btw. it seems that the brush settings can be imported as well. They are stored in the "toolnrm" folder, as consecutive .ini files. (Maybe you know this)
This is just a suggestion, but wouldn't it be convenient to include these files too, instead of manually having to create 25 brushes with different settings. 
Best regards.

I installed a new version of SAI and got it to work, but is there a difference between brushes like Bristle 1 em and Bristle? It may be a brush installed in the version I downloaded, but do you know?
How about between Bristle 1 em and Bristles 2, 3, or 4 em? They look the same in the preview.

Hello!! When I try to drag over the files to the main sai directory it says that the operation is not supported. I tried a couple different ways of moving over the files but I couldn't get to work.

I've done everything...
I've read the README more than once, thinking I did something wrong, but I do everything right. The file 'brushform' is not in my SAI folder, nor in the one I had just downloaded.

And when I right click on said files in the instructions, it does not give me the option to 'open with'. ;-;

If you have windows 10, just open it and it will give you a prompt to open with notepad.

I did all the steps from the README but I'm still very confused with this: "When it opens, start a new line at the end and copy and paste the lines below into the .conf files:" How do I start a new line? copy and paste the lines below?... I don't get it. Can you please supply a visual representation(a screenshot) of this step, because I really don't get it. I just assumed you meant is to press 'enter' to make a space and then write the new textures underneath that space which is under preexisting textures. Whenever I do this, (I've tried restarting my computer and opening SAI, it didn't work. I still got the same results.) for some reason the preexisting textures multiply themselves. For example: Flat Bristel, Flat Bristel. Canvas, Canvas. <--- Like that. I'm confused and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I tried to open the .conf files but Notepad didn't appear in the "Open with" options so i simply opened the brush folders and dragged the respective brushes into them, but they didn't show up in sai. Does this method even work?

Uh, I copied and pasted the extra text to go in the brushform, brushtex, and papertex on Notepad, but when I go onto Paint Tool SAI it wasn't there. What am I doing wrong? Just saying, I am using the full version of Paint Tool SAI that I bought and didn't download for free off some dark corner of the internet.

make sure you're looking in the right place. the new textures should show in one of the texture drop downs. The brushes themselves have to be manually made (as it says in the readme) people always miss that part somehow XD. if you cant find them in the drop downs, make sure there are no extra spaces or typos, and if that's not a problem, then make sure you don't have more than once instance of the program install. I once had a person find out they had 9 instances of SAI installed and didn't know it!

Yeah I really have no idea what I did wrong. I checked the blotmap/brushtex/papertex, and there were no typos. I made all the brushes manually following the screenshots provided, and I also double checked  to make sure I had only one PaintToolSAI program downloaded. Also, in the blotmap folder for example, the things in there say, "Noise 1 bltmp" "Speckle 1 btlmp" "Spread 1 btlmp" "Spread&Noise" and "Spread". Same goes for the other folders, they have all the textures from you. Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Apparently, I had two versions of Paint Tool SAI, but the one with all the textures was one without the lose nice in the folder so it said "trial expired." I ended up getting rid of the expired one but I never figured out how to get the textures onto the one with the lisence. Sorry :/

I read that you've seen most errors, but I doubt you've seen this: I did what it said and pasted the lines in the conf file (I even painstakingly type out the other brushes added) but when I tried to save it, it said ' Cannot create the C:\Program Files\Paint Tool SAI English Pack Redistributable\Paint Tool SAI English Pack Redistributable\bushfire.conf file

Make sure that the path and file name are correct.'

Does that each and every time too...

first, check your .conf file name.. bushfire.conf shouldn't be one that exists, second, right click the folder of your main sai directory, go to properties, and check the file permissions, make sure it's set so you have all permissions (you may need to be on an admin account). Chances are that your folder has been set to not allow changes to the files--hence the error. third, brushes may not work if you're using a trial version of SAI or an illegal copy--because the files have either been locked from being edited (and cannot be unlocked) OR have already been edited in such a way that they won't work with further editing.  Usually that fixes the problem :)
