Clip Studio Paint
I made a pixel art brush set for Clip Studio Paint (CSP). Get the brushes from Ko-fi or find the brush set from the Clip Studio Assets store.
As of April 2022 it has over 7k downloads. The useful feature is it shows previews of what dithering pattern you have selected, and includes a broad range of patterns used in PC-98 games. It contains x22 .sut files which are a CSP format.

The x25 brushes in this set are formatted as a .bundle file which can be loaded using the Resources Manager in Setting and selecting Import. Here is a preview of the 25 patterns:
Examples of dithering patterns
In this example, the gradient varies from a half tone, to a four dot and cross or flower pattern.
