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/brell was updated on 19. Nov 2023 to add a fourth section. Available here

That's mighty fine gradient work of yours... let me guess... you used one of the Following:

Adobe PhotoShop CS
Flash MX CS
Adobe Illustrator CS
Painter X
Or you used some-unproffession painting program? I usually use Color It! Tongue

Nice backgrounds. Might use them, sometimes.

But the thing we really need... is new Characters! Artists, get your brushes!

I've done my Ted charater, (Look at my Avatar) Tongue and Joeb has done his nice JAC and in that StarCraft thing I made I used a effect in Photoshop to put a force-feild around Jack so he could survive in space. If only we had some crazy-good artist who could make us some more charaters...

*Idea* Or... we could all bribe Jacob (the artist of MM) to make us some more charaters! Tongue Roll Eyes Grin Cheesy

Hmm... I see you dragged the icon from the custom mansions into some of the backgrounds. I see you wanted people to use this in the opening part or intro of the mansion, and you're looking at the mansion in the distance. If I where you, I'd go around the edges of the mansion icon and get rid of the white transparent stuff before you added it to the picture. It would look abit nicer. But it's fine anyways. Smiley

Notice: If I remember correctly, the backgrounds will tile if it's too small! A standard background should be at least 640x432. That's the size of the built-in backgrounds.

I tried that application you used. It's nice! It's a perfect coloring program. If you want to do more complex backgrounds like Joeb's dominator with that nice-3d stuff on the moon, you should get the nice, (now free) Bryce 5. There's a tread with the address to where you download it somewhere in the Art area.

I usually use gradients that have colors from a darker blue to a light blue for my backgrounds. I use Color It! 3.0 for that.

P.S. Love that half water/half sky effect.  Wink
