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.

Hi,

Boy oh boy is this a hard mansion.  Lots of CD's.  I think that this is a Jack Stuck.  Please advise. 
When are you going to fine tune it?  It's a Great Hard Mansion!

In this pic, Jack can't get back to p/u the red key.  I will post the other
pic where Jack can't get out of either, because he doesn't have a purple key.

Missy, check whether you can find any advice in the long "Church" thread.  I never finished this not-so-well-polished mansion.  Sam promised us an update long time ago but we haven't heard from him for quite a time now.  Actually we should not have put this mansion on the custom mansion list in the state it is in but we thought it was thoroughly beta tested.

Thank you Brell,

I did check the long thread....there is no mention of hints,
Only complaints that there are so many CD's and JS's and not finished.

To bad someone else does not finish this mansion properly as it really is worth it.

Oh well.

Agreed, but then there is the question of authority (is that the right term?).

Vern has his contact info.  If the creator gives permission then it would be worth completing.
If the creator is no where to be found.....then what's the problem?
It's not like there is a domain claim.....is there?

Freddy and I also have his e-mail.  To me it is still a question of copyright regardless whether the author can be contacted or not.

Since you are in possession of his email, have you tried contacting him thru his personal email?

BTW:  Is it not the copyright of Vern's game that these CM's are based on?  Aren't these CM's considered Fangames based on licensed computer games?

Was there a written agreement between the licensed copyright owner and the CM creator?  Only Vern can answer that question as the CM creator is not making himself/herself available.

See below question posted on the net in this link: 
Copyright questions concerning computer games

http://www.intelproplaw.com/Copyright/Forum/msg/6740.shtml

"If the creators of the fangame are approached by the company with the copyrights and are offered the rights to publish the games even if the company owns the copyrights, can they make a deal that ensures that the fangame won't be taken away from them or discontinued at a later stage just because they agreed to produce the game under their supervision?"

I didn't mean copyright laws or anything like that.  I only meant "ethical copyright".  For example, I am not sure that I would like it if someone else changed one of my CM's and then made it available to the MM public.
But it is open to debate.  If the mansion is truly unplayable without changes then something must be done.  It would be nice to have more views on this.

And yes, Freddy has tried to contact him.  If I remember correctly, Sam had promised us an update but that was ages ago.

Some time people change their email address.  Perhaps you have his phone number on file, or use 411 reverse search with his address or phone number or anything.

But I agree, it would be nice to contact the person first.  If to no avail and all post attempts have been made to get creator to surface, well, then the CM, sorry to put it so bluntly........ is up for grabs.
