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.

It's not that the bricks are invisible, it's just that they're being covered up by tiles placed in layer five or six. I don't think, however, that there is a solid black tile to use, in which case Brell used a custom tile in TPI. If your rooms have backgrounds, though, then you can just use whatever background tile you were drawing with.

You also probably will have to erase the fringe. This is the 3D effect placed automatically by the editor in layers 1-3. To erase it, switch to those layers and click away.

Hope that helps.

There is actually a solid black brick you can cover things up in laver 5...
Those dungeon doors (with the brick backgrounds) have some black tiles between the door peices. (located about 2/3rds of the way down that bar for the bricks/backgrounds. If you don't get what I'm saying, I'll get you a pic.

Speaking of erasing the fridge, don't forget if you want to get rid of layer 6 3d fringe you can uncheck the "draw layer 6 fringe" in the special menu. Then select the nothing-ness tile (aka the erasing black tile) and click away the fridge... it's also easier to uncheck it before you start drawing layer 6 stuff.

May not be related to subject... but anyways...

oh yeah, to make a good secret that has a good hint, (that's like for example a secret room through a grey brick wall) and you have no layer 6 cracked brick with a fridge to give a hint, just draw a not cracked layer 6 wall to the secret without a fringe! Makes the players to look out for that, because usually they look out for cracked walls...

EDIT: Fridge, fringe... whats the differance?  Roll Eyes

Some fridges have fringes, some even have midges; but ALL have hinges.

Anyways... back to subject...

Hey, I remember in one of AquaMat's mansions... DoD...? (Discoth of doom... is that the right spelling?  Huh)

That Aquamat put a sign... saying repeat the magic words and you can float... how did you do that, Aquamat??

I've been designing away before and somehow (I forget how) the ground let Jack float, or levitate, as it says in Aquamat's mansion. I had to remake the room to get rid of this, this... bug.
