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.

Sorry Mikee. When explaining I need to do 2 things.

1. Give a complete explanation.

2. Use as much detail as possible so the explanation can be followed.


1 + 2 = a LOT of words.

OK. For those who need the short explanation:

Just because it looks like white it may not be white.
Eliminate, or change to white, anything that isn't pure white.
For the three color components (R)ed (B)lue (G)reen
R = 100% or 255
B = 100% or 255
G = 100% or 255

HTH,

Yes 1 + 2 = A Lot of words. Only with us is it somewhat different... With us 1 + 2 = 3

FYI all,

The TOTOMBs graphic set is almost complete.
Sorry for so many posts in a row but I've been up to my eyeballs in real work, reorganization at the office so I've just been lurking on the forums.

Me and my dad worked on this this morning. WOW! I still don't get it... I changed the background to pure white and it DOES say the colors are 255... all three of them! Does the picture have to be a different format? (we tried pcd and psd) The bricks aren't working either. When I put the light blue in (0,255,255) it shows up in MM as well as in photoshop. My dad suggested transparent layers but nothing happened. The only other thing I have to ask is why are the mummy graphics so darn small!?! They're too small for the normal graphics and the game has a problem when I put some in... Hopefully this will be the last time I (and even my dad) ask. Huh Undecided Embarrassed

They have to be .jpeg! .psd is for Photoshop! .pic is for many apps. as a main image type. Mainly for me, Color it!™. Color is excellent for making new bad guys, and Photoshop is harder to use. It sooo complicated but I manage. To make it .jpeg, when you save your image in Photoshop, make sure the type is jpeg or jpg (No difference) and NOT .pic or .psd. You should read the documents that came with the game! They explain alot! Like how to get custom music, custom backgrounds, ect. (Not sure about sprites and tiles though, read Joeb's tutorial again) Oh yeah, .png works, too for the background type! Quickest way is to take a screenshot of the background you want. Command + Shift + 3 takes full screen screenshot, Command + Shift + 4 you can select an area with the mouse. The screenshot should appear on the desktop. If not, search for "Picture 1, or 2, or whatever.

Yeah, the picture type doesn't help. I don't know what's going on...
