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

On a "First Impression" topic, if a potential player goes to MMF, the dates of all the categories under Announcements (other than Vern's update) give the impression that this is not an active Message Board. Some may scroll down to see the rest of the site, but some may just click off and go elsewhere. Perhaps the Announcement area could just have "New!" (or something like that) when there is something new and delete those old dates in the other categories? It's just something that always bothers me - perhaps no one else!!

Hi All,

Wouldn't it be a lot easier just to fix the little search window at the top so that it does find all the dialogue about the CM or MM in question or any other topic.

That way, we don't have to search and search and search all the topics for info.

ie:  on my IBS forum, all I have to do is type in a word or two and the search produces ALL posts containing that word.  My search is then cut down to those dialogues.  Much quicker and more efficient. 

Unfortunately here, we use short forms a lot  ie:  MM, CM, etc.  but at least, if the search window was more efficient,  it would  group all posts and dialogues containing the text typed into it, even if short forms are typed in.  yes? no?

BTW, I got permission to post MM on the IBS board.  Raving how it kept my sanity during my bouts with insomnia and my mind off of being sick. Which it really did.

I hope it boosts up traffic and sales.  Keep in mind, not everyone owns a iMac......so I also raved about iMac ownership versus PC.......hee,heee,heee.......so far they haven't deleted it and the views are climbing.

Can you give an example of the search window not working?

Anyway, the search feature is a part of the forum software and we cannot change that.

Hi Brell,

Yes, if I type in a CM's name I do not get all the post for that name.   I just did it for "The Wall"  4 posts came up, highlighting "the" mainly......"wall" appeared actually in my post mentioning it.

But, all the posts pertaining tp the CM "The Wall"  did not show up.

Hope this helps.

You are right, the search window is not very good.  But as I said there is nothing we, the admins, can do about it.

How about trying the Search BUTTON second to the right of the Home button?  Wink
Only gives 15 results max, though.

A good search-system in any software should be obvious. Roll Eyes

But since many many many posts do NOT contain e.g. the name of the mansion that they are about, one will still be missing most posts. Embarrassed

Hi Brell

Still not good......the word "The" in "The Wall" is the primary focus of the search.  hummmm.  For such a sophisticated, tekkie system......the search is real poor.

The IBS forum search is great. check them out:  http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/index.php?http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/

Perhaps Action Soft is not aware of this problem?  You know, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.  Time to notify them.  yes? no?

I will contact Vern of ActionSoft. Not specifically about this issue (alone). But, as far as I know, our software is still YaBB 2.2 and there have been THREE updates yet. It feels obvious to ask him to install version 2.2.3 for our MMF.

Let us hope that several things will become (even) better. Smiley
