Load image from EmbeddedResource

See original GitHub issue

Before submitting a new issue, please verify and check:

  • The issue is specific to Raylib-cs and not raylib
  • I checked there is no similar issue already reported
  • My code has no errors or misuse of Raylib-cs

Issue description

I would like to be able to load an image file using embedded resources and convert this to a Raylib_cs.Image/Texture


Code example

My current code:

var myStream =;
var image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(myStream);

return Raylib.LoadTextureFromImage(image);

Throws the error:

error CS1503: Argument 1: cannot convert from 'System.Drawing.Image' to 'Raylib_cs.Image'

There may already be a way to do this, but I couldn’t find one in the examples or looking at the lib’s code. The Go raylib library provides a NewImageFromImage function that converts a native go Image into a Raylib one, so something like that would probably do

You could always combine the files after building (e.g. copy /b Game.exe + Resources.rres GameWithResources.exe) and then split them up again at runtime by looking for the rres Magic Bytes (HEX: 72 72 65 73).

I am currently developing an rres parser for use with Raylib-cs, so I will take this use-case under consideration

@JupiterRider cheers for that, it seems to be working well.

Many thanks 👍
