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.

Maybe your Jack used some kind of a "teleporter device" and beamed himself up there ??

Actually I just figured it out. I dropped down onto that level when the moving block was going up. Basically I went under the moving block and got stuck on the lower level.

I guess you are referring to the moving brick in the room above the one you're stuck in.

But still:  even when you did it like that, you would have "flown" right thru the zapper beam (which goes across the whole width below the moving brick - even if only part of it is visible) - and I really can't see how you would have passed this zapper alive ??

PS: In the meantime I have tried to duplicate your behaviour in all ways I could think of. I never managed to land in the room below alive !!??!

Maybe there was a brief power outage in the Complex when sherry's Jack passed through the zapper beam?

Hi aquaMat -

I tried to take a movie of Jack's jump. Perhaps I'm not doing it right, but I can only record the last room - not the jump from the room above. I pressed Command R in the top room, but both times I only recorded the lower room???? I have two different films - the first I died on my fall and then was 'reborn' in the room below. The other time I let Jack fall under the platform so he was alive on the lower level.

If you tell me how to do it, I'll send those two clips to you.

Unfortunately I have no experience with those MM-movies.
I have never tried to make one....  but as far as I remember there was a detailed explanation in the MM User Manual, wasn't it ?
If I remember correctly, it is not possible to simply record a certain sequence though..... the MM-movie feature can only "film" a complete game.

I'd like to see it though....

...so maybe another member could help out by telling you how to record the movie of only a segment ??

One way to do it:
You could use Snapz.
This is a free software which lets you make "screenshot movies" (= a movie equivalent of a screenshot). Everything that happens on the screen (incl. mouse movements) is recorded into a quicktime (?) movie and can then be exported / saved.

I once used Snapz - however I never used it to record MM.... but I remember we have talked about it in this forum before - so I assume anybody else might have used it for MM already !?

Ahem, Sherryl.....

.... I have just re-read your post.  Maybe I had misunderstood you. Undecided

Now it sounds as if you DO already have working film clips of the issue ??!
Or not ?
(First I had the impression it hadn't worked correctly and you were asking for asiistance for the filming).

If you have working films in a format that I & my Mac can read, please PM me about it....or send them via E-Mail.

I just downloaded Snapz and will see how that goes. What I have now are two short films that I recorded using the MM record feature. The recording, however, in both cases, only recorded the final room - perhaps it cannot record room to room. If you  pm your email, I will send those to you (I'm a totally Mac person) and try to do better with Snapz. Perhaps it is as Semi-Native said, Jack is falling between the electric bolts?

Sherryl you can start the movie in any room at any time. Sstart it one room earlier you should get what you need.
