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.

Full Screen resolution
23.07.2008 at 16:01:02
 
Could you PLEASE help and enable fullscreen resolution for me.
I have 2 imac's 2006 & 2007 models (intel). and can not enable it on either one.
Yes I have held down option and chose 1680x1050 [S] every time but it reverts to full screen with a very small screen in the centre (possibly 640x480).
The game can not be played in this way and my children are desparate to play it and if they like it I will buy it.
But I'm afraid that simply purchasing an serial number will not resolve the display fault.

Hello, and welcome MacFanBoy

Are you playing the Intel version of the game? There are 2 versions, one for Intel and one for PPC Macs.

Hmm, since I have a PPC and never have had a problem like this, I'm afraid that was my only idea.

Hopefully someone else will come along and be able to help.
Good luck.

But as the resolution becomes bigger the playing screen becomes smaller, right?  Try smaller resolution and the playing screen should grow.

Exactly.
But why offer higher resolutions but not support them?

Hi!
I always play MM in a small window. I can't get used to a window all over my 20" monitor. Smiley

I'm not sure if this will work (just a little idea I came up with) But you could try re-installing it then retrieve all you lost files from your last MM File, remeber it might not work.

MacFanBoy,

You're misunderstanding the resolution pop-up list. You want to select 640x480, or the size closest to that, from the pop-up menu if you choose your own resolution.

Midnight Mansion is 640x480, and by changing your *monitor* to the same resolution, it will take up the entire display when it runs.

If you set it to 1680x1050, your display will remain in that resolution, and Midnight Mansion's tiny 640x480 resolution will take up a rather small portion of that.

Sorry I haven't been on these forums for a while... hope this message is helpful to someone.
