Advanced Configuration Tool for SAI 1.1.0 by dsp2003 Advanced Configuration Tool for SAI 1.1.0 by dsp2003
This is a small tool I've made for easier tweaking of hidden SAI configuration options, which are otherwise unavailable in its own GUI. =3=

>>> DOWNLOAD IT HERE <<<
(Stupid dA won't allow me to upload archives. =_= )

I might add more options and features in the future versions (depending if people want them to be added).

Installation:
1. Unpack and place to writeable location along with SAI's executable and misc.ini.
2. Launch sai-conf.exe.
3. Have fun. ^u^

Developed in Delphi 7 at 2013/07/10.
Uses Silk icon set by famfamfam.

P.S. Source code will be made available a bit later.

Edit [2013/07/12]: Added Russian version.

Planned in next versions:

* ACT's interface translation (no more different binaries)
* Canvas profile viewer/editor
* Swatch configuration preview
* Brush viewer/editor
* Texture viewer/editor

Read the previous comments. It won't work properly if you've installed SAI into Program Files under Vista/7/8/8.1 - the directory is write-protected and the configuration will not be saved.

Make sure the Navigator itself is enabled in "Window (W) -> Navigator (N)" menu. :)

If you're using Windows 7, please make sure SAI is NOT installed in "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" folder, otherwise you won't be able to save settings made by tweaker, simply because they're protected when application is working under non-root administrator account.

I'm having a bit of trouble...what does it mean to 'in place to writeable location' ??

Writeable location is the place on hard drive or flash drive where your user account is allowed to write data.

In shitty OS like Windows Vista/7/8.x C:\Program Files is protected from write operations, hence the configuration tool might not work at all if SAI was placed there.

Thank you. :) I'm surprised nobody thought about making such tool before, since, well, everything is placed on plain sight (if you are advanced user and got used to edit .ini and .conf files, that is). It might take a while to implement all planned features, though.

Also, worth mentioning those hidden settings were placed into configuration files instead of main GUI for a reason - some of them contain bugs (for example, the Navigator floating window will reappear again if closed from main menu when you'll minimize and maximize SAI again).

haha, that's fine! the best work takes time, usually. i hope no one rushes you to finish it.

also, i would think bugs are to be expected for sure. so far, i'm using the swatch manipulation and there's no bugs there, though! it's pretty neat. c:

Не стоит благодарности. ^u^

В принципе, можно добавить ещё несколько функций, но там нестандартный формат хранения значений - придётся чуток попотеть. %)

Будет время - сделаю превьюшку изменений для Swatch-панели. Так настраивать наглядней. :3
