I pirated SAI and used it for a while, but half a year ago I've run into some problem with it being the trial expired version (and I just couldn't make it work).
So now I use Firealpaca.

I use MediBang, it's like SAI, but the cheap cousin of it. Its free, but it has a few tools that are missing that you might see in SAI. For example there is no burn tool that exists (yet) in MediBang...

Manga Studio 5 is a really great alternative! It's a really good mix of both PS and Sai, only it's much much cheaper and works wonderfully with Macs. I got my copy for $20 while it was on sale <3

I technically didn't pirate it, a friend got a better drawing program, and gave me his copy of it.

I had considered buying it but then I saw Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint go on sale for a good dela and snagged that.
I've been using that ever since, I really enjoy it. And I modded it to look just like SAI lol

I'm currently using the trial version of SAI, but I think I prefer FireAlpaca over it, because it gets on my nerves more.
I'd be too afraid for my computer to try to get the Pirated version. :I

this may be a long shot but maybe try right-clicking your sai.exe shortcut on your desktop or wherever and going into properties, go to the compatibility tab, and check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". that made my sai's menus go into the correct proportions/become crisp on my tablet monitor's screen so it might work for you?

My SAI was given to me. Dunno if it was pirated or not.
