DMISharp is a .NET 7.0 library for easily interacting with the BYOND DMI file format.

Developed with ease-of-use in mind, this library provides a simple means for importing, modifying, and exporting DMI files. Internally, images are handled using ImageSharp, a fantastic open-source library from SixLabors.


Install the current stable release from Nuget.


Getting Started

Important things to note:

  • Always dispose DMIFile / DMIState objects. They use unmanaged memory for their sprites.

Ingesting a DMI file from a path:

using var file = new DMIFile("test.dmi")
// do cool things

Ingesting a DMI file from a stream:

// Getting a memory stream from a database with the DMI file's data in the response
using var dmiData = database.GetFile("test.dmi")
using var file = new DMIFile(dmiData)
// do more cool things

Sorting a DMI file's states alphabetically, and saving the resulting DMI file:

using var file = new DMIFile("unsorted_states.dmi")

Sorting a DMI file's states using a provided comparer, and saving the resulting DMI file to a memory stream:

using var stream = new MemoryStream()
using var file = new DMIFile("unsorted_states.dmi")
file.SortStates(new CoolCustomComparer());

Creating a new DMI file with 32x32 pixel states, and creating 3 states from 3 source images:

using var newDMI = new DMIFile(32, 32)
var sourceData = new List<string>() { "sord", "sordvert", "steve32" };

foreach (var source in sourceData)
    var img = Image.Load<Rgba32>($@"Data/Input/SourceImages/{source}.png");
    var newState = new DMIState(source, DirectionDepth.One, 1, 32, 32);
    newState.SetFrame(img, 0);


Creating a new DMI file with 32x32 pixel states, creating a state, and then modifying that state's frame and direction depth:

using var newDMI = new DMIFile(32, 32)

// Create state
var img = Image.Load<Rgba32>($@"Data/Input/SourceImages/steve32.png");
var newState = new DMIState("steve32", DirectionDepth.One, 1, 32, 32);
newState.SetFrame(img, 0);

// Modifying state

// At this point you would add the new frames for each direction, otherwise
// you cannot save the file.

// Saving
