FireAlpaca Brushes by David-c2011 FireAlpaca Brushes by David-c2011
A collection of 30 brushes for FireAlpaca. I did NOT create these, I simply exported them to the .PNG format and configured the parameters. Also 2 pencil presets that may be useful for sketching. All brushes are aptly named.

The screenshot demonstrates them in action (pressure sensitivity not used).

You need to have the program installed first. This is not included here, and must be downloaded seperately from it's website. If you already have saved brushes of your own - be prepared to have them overwritten. This will NOT however, overide the default brushes like blur or watercolour.

Unfortunately, FireAlpaca doesn't save the brushes config files into the programs direct folder, but instead into your local settings folder. Therefore you need to manually copy the zipped "FireAlpaca" folder to your OS's appropriate directory.

You should be able to locate this folder from the programs "help" menu. These folders may be hidden, so you may need to right click in your file browser to "show all / show hidden".

If for some reason this doesn't work, see below:

For Windows XP the directory for the unzipped folder to be copied to should be:

C:-Documents and Settings-YOUR_USER_ACCOUNT-Local Settings-Application Data-Local

For Vista and Windows 7, the folder is:

C:-users-yourname-appdata-local

These are the directories where a "FireAlpaca" folder should already exist, so check it first. In it should be 3 ".ini" files - these are your setting files for the saved brushes, and are the ones that need to be overwritten. Any messages about overwriting files must be answered with yes.

If you use a MAC then I'm afraid I don't know where the folder should be copied to. If it has a file search tool then search for "brush.ini" and the directory should be found.

It's all a bit akward, but the only way to do it right now.



* Tip - when using them make sure "anti-aliasing" is turned off. I've noticed it causes massive slowdown when turned on, and anti-aliasing doesn't seem to work anyway.

* This requires the latest version of FireAlpaca to work. It will not work with older versions that do not support the new BITMAP brushes.

I actually have a question about this program FireAlpaca I just downloaded.
I used Paint Tool Sai for 4 years now, and I tried the basic brushes and I was wondering if you know if there's a way to fix it.
If I put the brush on like... 60%, yknow it doesn't give the 100% colour Ive chosen. In Sai you can see through for that remaining 40%.
In this program however... if I don't have it on 100% and stroke a view time... the areas that overlay with each other become darker.
But what if I really want that see through?
I hope you don't mind me asking this question....

When you download the .zip file "Extract" the brush_bitmap folder to this sequence:
C:/Users/your username/AppData/Local/FireAlpaca/FireAlpaca/brush_bitmap
And to use/set/customize a brush, go to the bottom of your brush panel and look for a button that looks like a piece of paper that has 4 tiny boxes on it.
Sorry if Im too late to help Sweating a little...

download the file, open it, then on the program go down to add new brush (bitmap) (it's next to the add new brush) and then choose images from the downloaded file :) i hope that wasn't confusing if you haven't already figured this process out

Thank you! Where did you get them?

Also, there is a button in Fire Alpaca that can add brushes manually. All you have to do is click "add bitmap" under the brushes (it's a weird button icon), and click the images of the brushes.

Go to the programs "help" menu and select "open config folder". The unzipped files need to be copied there.

Hey, I tried to download and install these brushes; I made sure to copy them to the right folder. The problem is that they don't show up. There is a second FireAlpaca folder within the first one in my local folder. I made sure to delete that one and copied all the files into the first FireAlpaca foldier. Now every time I go back to config settings, the second FireAlpaca folder pops back up. I'm not sure how is this happening. I'm using windows 8 and have FireAlpaca version 1.0.42. Thanks!

You need to download the file on this page (right hand side where the green arrow is pointing) and unzip it into your hard drive. Doesn't matter where, but after unzipping it open the "Fireaplaca" folder where there should be 3 files and 1 folder: brush_Bitmap, config.ini, language.ini, brush.ini.

2) Delete the "config.ini" file and keep the window for this folder open.

3) Start Firealpaca, go to "help" and then choose the "open config folder". This should open a new window.

4) Go back the first window that has the files, select them all and right click on them, then choose "copy".

5) Now go to the window with the folder that Firealpaca opened, right click on an empty space, and choose "paste. This will copy the files needed there. If it asks you if you want to overwrite the files, then answer "yes" at all times.

6) Close Firealpaca and the 2 folders, then restart Fireaplaca. The brushes should now be there along with the standard ones.

If it doesn't work let me know.

Doesn't look like the right folder. There should not be a second "Firealpaca" folder there. Try copying the files into the Firealpaca folder that comes before that second one.

If it doesn't work then check that you have the latest version of Firealpaca, because only the latest versions support the new brushes. The version can be checked with "help" and the version should be: 1.0.41

If still no success then correct folder should be:

C:\users\yourname\Appdata\Local\Firealpaca

The "yourname" part is named "PC_Users" by default, otherwise its whatever the name your user account is.
