What works

Basics work such as using all the tools and what not. Tried importing my custom settings by copying it from Windows, and it also works.

What does not

Recovery still doesn't work. I assume this has to do with the way the SAI2 gets the data off the memory that only works in Windows.

Also, it seems like once you've reached past the 5% memory usage based on the bar below, the program is unable to function normally. It keeps outputting a "Windows function call" error. I haven't really drawn ones on the spot with Linux yet that reaches over 5% using WINE, but I've got works made from Windows that should go over that, that once I open it with WINE, SAI2 would freeze. 

Again, I assume this also has to do with the way SAI2 works with memory usage that's incompatible with WINE.

So more or less, most of the problems with SAI2 is the way it interacts with memory, particularly RAM.

Windows Version compatibility also only works up to Windows 7.


What was not tested

Working on other file formats hasn't been tested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

If you're working on small time works with Manjaro that probably doesn't go over 5% mem usage according to SAI2, you'll be fine. Otherwise, get a bigger RAM.
