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

Technical Question

Does anybody know of a Mac shortcut to get to the desktop while playing MM?  Sometimes I'm notified that mail has arrived but I'm not able to read it without suspending and quitting the program and then restarting again after I've checked the mail.

Hi Jackie,

You can toggle between full screen and window mode. Hit the Esc key to pause the program, then hit Command-space bar to go to window mode. You can check your mail or whatever, then go back to MM, hit the Esc key again. That might automatically change you back to full screen. If not, hit Command-space bar again.

Perfect, Semi-Native!!  The Esc and Command-Space keys to toggle between full screen and window mode works great.  Just what I wanted to know.  It will come in handy when I want to check the time as well since there is no other clock in my computer room.  Thanks! Smiley

Doesn't the Command+Tab shortcut work? Vern said he put that or was going to put that in an update... Undecided

I never did get command + tab to work and am not sure why. Looked up that shortcut in Apple's Help and it is Application Switcher.  Something must not be set up correctly on this Intel iMac and I haven't changed the default.  I'm glad the escape-command-space trick works to shrink the window.  I use it often.

...maybe it doesn't work because I think it only came out in Mac OS 10.4 and you only have 10.3?? Huh

This Mac has OS 10.4.11, Wingy.  My friend got a new iMac a couple months ago and she can shrink Midnight Mansion with just command-space too, Matari.  I have to hit Escape first.  Anyway, it gets the job done.
