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.

Hmmm.  I also got a JS in Rm. 20310 by coming up from in front of the purple door.  Thought I'd grab the shield before departing to the left.  Rather interesting that DLC was on Save #5 and I only have one save at this point. Undecided

Note: (This is my second reply..... just when I finished my first, very eloquent one, my Mac crashed and the reply was gone. I now try to paraphrase myself.... but I'm sure it is not as perfect as my first reply !)


Yes,
I vaguely remember having thought about this back then (during the design of DoD).

The main reason for this is the old MM game bug that allows Jack to jump over certain smaller closed doors.

To be more precise, this unlikely JS only occurs if a player

a) jumps "on top" of the closed purple door..... and then...
b) jumps further up from there, to the spot where you got stuck.....  and
c) does all this BEFORE he grabs the purple key (otherwise the purple door would immediately open if one tries to jump "over" it).

There's really not much I could do against that game bug (except completely altering the room design).
As I'm otherwise very proud of this unusual room I decided to keep it and leave it as it is.

So it really doesn't happen often - after DoD's 2 or more years of existence you're the first one ever to report this JS.... so I'd rather keep the room and advise people to play "according to the rules" which in this case means: not jump over closed doors !!   Cool  Wink

BTW: there's no need to remind me of the "rules" for JS's now.... I'm fully aware of them, but I simply feel in cases like this we have to give the room design priority over a potential but improbable JS.

PS:
The shield you tried to "grab before departing to the left" is only a red herring, anyway.

Maybe - as a compromise or a concession, so to speak - I could erase this shield and maybe this will result in even less people trying to "get up there"....  ??!?   Undecided
