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

Wingy!
I tried the Rezilla thing and it didn't work. However: I started rebuilding the mansion already (I only had about 50 rooms, which are now almost completely rebuild) and came up with a better design along the way, so it doesn't really matter. Thanks anyways!

Alrighty then. Sorry it didn't work, but oh well.

Carrying on then. Good luck with the mansion and all that jazz.

Hmmm, this would be a question really only I could answer. Whenever you get an error message like that, it's something I'd have to look up in the game's source code, to see what couldn't be loaded. In this case, looking at my source code just now, the problem is that the 'LEVL' resource couldn't be loaded for that room.

The LEVL resource is what keeps track of your "Room Options..." settings (from the File menu). One exists for every room in the mansion... or at least it should. If it doesn't, something must've happened to corrupt your mansion somehow. If possible, delete the room in the editor, and create it again. This should create it properly, with the LEVL resource intact.

If anyone ever sees a cryptic error message like this, reporting a filename and line number and error code, email me at support [AT] actionsoft DOT com and I'll help you out.

Oh wait, I just realize that the *game* is giving you this error message when you attempt to open the mansion, rather than the editor. One possibility is that you set the "starting room" to a room that doesn't exist. Verify in "Mansion Options" in the editor that your starting room exists. If it doesn't, the LEVL resource is the first the game attempts to load, so it'd make sense why it wouldn't be able to find it, for a non-existant room.

Vern!

Sorry for not answering sooner but I had sort of forgotten about the whole thing since I took "Escape from Paris" to a different direction design-wise and hence didn't rely on what I did so far anymore. Thanks anyways for your input. If it ever happens again, this is what I'll try first!
