Actionsoft's latest game, Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills,  includes 28 mansions. The 8 Built-in mansions have 3 difficulties along with 4 extra custom mansions. We don't have that many other custom MM2 mansions yet. Design your own custom mansion! Info below.  You can find out more about the game here.

The original Midnight Mansion game contains over 150 mansions. The 8 included mansions which have 3 difficulty levels each, and about 115 approved custom mansions which you can download here and also several freely uploaded mansions. To know the difference between these three types of mansions, click here.

Are you a creative person and thinking of designing a mansion yourself? Or want to know about how to upload it? Click here and we'll show you! You'll find guidelines for betatesters here.

News:
Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills version 1.0.2b has been released. This fixes a bug in Jasperlone Mountains Hard. Simply re-download the game, bring over your custom mansions folder from the old version and play on. All your saves and high scores will not be changed.

Midnight Mansion HD (MM1) is now available at the Mac App Store and at the Actionsoft website. A Windows version is now available.

Here is a list of downloadable MM1 HD ready custom mansions, which also work in the Windows version of the game.

The MM2 custom mansion Hanging Gardens of Babylon by Freddy/SandyBean/Josephine was updated on 16 Feb 2014 to add a third section.

This mansion is called StarCraft. It's going to have to have custom art, which I'm working on. Here's a screenshot of a room. Bty, the mansion's name is StarCraft because most of my art is related to the awesome masterpeice by Blizzard Entertainment... StarCraft :: Broodwar.

Here's the screenshot:

...

As you can see, the money is abit different, and Jack is stuck on a space platform! In the game StarCraft, you need Minerals, (Blue Crystal) and Vesvain Gas. (Gas Containers) Also, there's no life up there but Jack. There's just robots in the way!

I'll finish it... in awhile.

Btw... Have anyone ever played StarCraft? There's a free demo at this address:
http://www.blizzard.com/starcraft/macscdemo.shtml
Most of the bad guys are not related to StarCraft,  Undecided but just robots. You need classic to play the demo. The full version you can get a installer to make is OS X.  Cool
I've been drawing new bad guys and tile sets for like... 5 hours?   Wink

@Vern:
You said you couldn't edit sprites. Well uh... how come I can?

Looks pretty good, Wingy.

I've been trying this for quite some time, without any sucess so far  Undecided

Wingy, as I said before.... of course it is possible to edit sprites (in the Midnight Mansion Sprites resource map), it's just not possible to do it in the resource file of your mansion (as it is with tiles).

I'm currenty doing custom graphic sprites myself...and it's a lot of fun !!

Its easy to get another background, Frost! You simply get the image you want, like I went to StarCraft's Wallpaper gallery and got that one. If the image is too small, it automaticly makes it a pattern. Once you have your image, you rename it, background8.jpg (Rename the extention) and put it into: /midnight mansion (folder)/game data/screens/
Then when you select it in the editor, you can select another backround! You can keep renaming differnent images. (e.g. background9.jpg, background10.jpg) Remember, the image has to be .jpg or .png.  Wink

Backgrounds and music have to be handled in a similar way. The mansion will need an accompanying read-me-first textfile with instructions for adding the backgrounds and/or the music at the right place(s). And you have to take care about RIGHTS. Don't use anything that result in bills send to Vern or whoever. Including yourself! Wink

I'm still confused with the music thingy... I renamed my own music, put it in the right place, told the editor to play it  in a sertain room, and I got a error window pop up when I played the mansion!  Cry Huh Undecided
