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

wow! your mansion is really great! You've inspired me to try custom graphics, but then again- I have a HUGE amount of problems with them... I think I'll stick with the plan- wait until the expansion gets out, and then make a custom graphic mansion.

Oh, I just have troubles with the white stuff in the editor a small bit... By the way- how did you get rid of every white bit in all your graphics? I always have like three little pixels or something ridiculous... (yes, I have made sure all the blue in the background is the exact same color) I don't  really have too many others. Wait- actually, in the sprites, how do you know exactly where to place the other sprite's animations in the file? (like in the skeleton spider, there's three drawings representing the animations) I mean, there's no lines or anything separating them.

AHA! The fake white problem. Somewhere in the Custom Graphics forum is a thread about this. I don't know what you're using to edit but Photoshop or ImageReady are my choices. When you select white you are looking for pixels that have a color value of 255,255,255 (RGB). So a pixel that is 255,255,
254
may look white but isn't. Therefore it gets left behind when MM is making white pixels transparent. Not all sprites and graphics use AQUA (0,255,255) and the critters sprites fall into this category.
Lining up frames of an animation can also be done with Photoshop/ImageReady by adding an extra layer that contains lines which mark where each frame should fit. When copying them to the clipboard just make the grid layer invisible and do a CopyMerged. I'm sure there are other graphics packages you can use but PS is the most powerful and widely used. For instance I use ToonBoom Studio, Manga Studio, DAZ Studio, Poser and modo to do animations. They all make the image alignment process much easier at a cost.
If you fall into getting frustrated you can always send me the graphic and an idea of what the issue is and I can try to fix it or at least tell you how.

Hope this helps!

Woop woop! You guys rock, you make coolio mansions. Currently getting to save point two, I got all the way through the underground bit to the bouncing eyes room and then started messing around and being arrogant and got myself killed. Silly Lara!

But it is now 12am so I'm going to go to bed...  Grin
