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.

????  I am still using version 1.0.9, and everything works great (as far as I know).

I am still very much a computer newbie, and terrified of most system upgrades, deleting programs, moving stuff, etc.

Can anyone tell me if I need to upgrade to the 1.1.8 version, and if so, how to do it for 'computer iMac Dummies'.  ?   Smiley

Thanks ahead of time, Smiley

While I do not always find it necessary to keep all my software at the latest version, I always do update my MM application.

Most of the time it is only one or two smaller issues that Vern has "repaired" when a new version comes out.....  however there have been some update-steps in the past that have been very important.

As you are really quite much behind (you're even below 1.1.0 !!), I'd really recommend that you update several steps.

Every update-version is a COMPLETE version of the program....so there's not much that can go wrong.

However, you must take care to move all the Custom Mansions from the older folder into the newest update. Manually !

What I would do:
Leave the old version on your Mac until you have installed and tested the update.
Try this:  Download the latest version (provided it's compatible with your version of the Mac OS !), and from the unzipped disk-image that appears after the download, copy the MM application 1.1.8 into your "Applications" folder - right next to your version 1.0.9.

Next, drag or copy the content of your old "Custom Mansions" folder into the new "Custom Mansions" folder (within the 1.1.8 application folder).
Start the new version and try to play a custom mansion once MM has started..... if that works fine you did everything correctly.

It's simple, isn't it??  Wink

Hi aquaMat,

Thanks So Much for the excellent and easy to follow instructions, I have printed them off so when I gain the courage to try it, I can follow them to the 'letter'.

Have another question though, when I looked through my computer, I found another folder labelled MM in my 'home section' (called forward5,  See attached pic)  when I go to > Library >Application Support > MM.  This MM folder contains things such as 'MM High Scores', 'Player Profiles', 'Saved Games', 'Output File Log', etc.   Will this all be automatically saved or updated along with the installation of the new MM version 1.1.8, or do I need to do something here too?

Sorry for all the questions, and I appreciate your help so much, just such a 'newbie' at all this stuff !   Undecided

thanks and take care,

SandyBean Smiley

Don't touch that folder. It has the data of saved games among other things. It is the info you want to keep.

Like rose said, you don't have to do anything about the folder in Application Support.

The MM updates have always gone smoothly for me, you don't have to worry. Just remember to move your custom mansions from the old version to the new one. Then after you're sure the new version is working fine, you can trash the old version's folder from your applications folder.

Ze folder with ze high scores, profiles and such, are always going to be the same. The only thing that needs to be updated is the Midnight Mansion applications and the midnight mansion data, pretty much.

I DID IT.... I DID IT ~!!!    Grin

Thanks aquaMat, Rose, Semi-Native and Wingy...........with all your great instructions, it really was a breeze, and I didn't accidentally delete anything !  Yaa Hoo !

But, I didn't really notice much difference either, but I guess since I am still playing "the Complex" Jack and I may not have run up against any glitches......it was designed by aquaMat after all!   Wink

Thanks Again, and take care All ~
