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

Does anybody know what this means?
17.09.2009 at 17:29:54
 
While working on my third epic mansion ("Escape from Paris": the third and last part of the big 'Jacques Moilone'-Trilogy), I wanted to test the work I accomplished so far. I started MM, clicked "Start Game", clicked "Open Mansion", selected the mansion and then I got an error message:

Can't find a resource.

File name: Level.c
Line number: 118 (unknown)
Error code: -192 (resNotFound)

HELP!  Sad


Good news regarding "Jacques' Revenge": Missy and Sherry are beta-testing parts 1 and 2. They are doing a great job and are almost finished. So you can expect the Mansion soon! Again: You might want to (but don't absolutely have to) take a shot at Palais Pompomrouge before playing the new mansion just so you are familiar with the storyline.

Hi leo,

I'm excited your new mansion is almost ready, but sorry, I can't help with your question. Hope you get it resolved soon.

I am not very good at this as I've never used any custom backgrounds, sprites, etc. but is it possible that you are using something like that and forgot to put it at a proper place?

Have you restarted the game and attempted to play and receive the same error message?

I know I've gotten error messages if I'm beta testing and then attempt to make a change in the game with the game on pause. But I don't remember any of the specifics of the error message.

Hi Leo, I remember getting a similar error when I either modified an original sprite/tile, or deleted it and gave my custom one the same number (or something like that.) Sorry it was a while ago, but maybe this will help you anyway.

Hi all!
Thanks for all your input, but I've tried all of that already and there is not single Bit of custom backgrounds or sprites anywhere in the mansion.

Hi Leo,

I'm looking forward to your new mansion...!!

As for your question:
I did get similar error messages several times in the past. One reason is indeed, as someone above has pointed out, a bit of custom graphic that has gone missing (often due to the typical "disappearing" bug in "Rezilla").

But you said you didn't use custom graphics.
Then I suppose it's something else..... it also happens when

1.  You accidentially forgot to correctly state the room number for the starting room (when working in the editor). In the editor this doesn't matter, but when you later try to start the mansion from within the game, the correct starting room can't be found, resulting in this error message.
...or...
2. You accidentially added or erased a letter, or even a blank space, to / from the mansion's name .... this of course only results in a conflict when you try to call up saved games (that still have the old "name") and the game can't open them because you've recently changed the name, or spelling etc.

There might be one or two other reasons, but I can't remember them now (from the top of my head). If I do, I'll report back.

Until then you could check if one of the above applies for your mansion ?!

Alright let's take a look here...

The error:

It seems that something is wrong to your Mansion File, from the level.c input.

The line number is I believe the line the graphic is on in the code, or 'under the hood.' (I'm pretty sure thats wrong, but that's my guess)

The sprite ID number of the Res file is of the Zapper Beam facing LEFT, so apparently something is wrong with that.

I would recommend this because the RES wasn't found, you want to put your very own exact copy of the left zapper beam in your mansion so its sure to find it: This is how in these 10 steps:
~
1. Open up Rezzila. (If you don't have it get it here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/rezilla/files/rezilla/1.1/RezillaBin1.1.dmg/down... )
~
2. Go into the Menu and File > Open...
~
3. Find your /Midnight Mansion Folder/Game Data/Midnight Mansion Sprites/. Open that up.
~
4. In that menu look for PICT (not pict, PICT) and open that up.
~
5. Look for 192. Double click it, you'll see the LEFT zapper graphic. Command + C (or go into Menu/Edit/Copy)
~
6. Once it's copied open up you Mansion file in /Midnight Mansion Folder/Custom Mansions/
(your mansion)
/
~
7. Open up the mansion. (With Rezilla, of course)
~
8. From here, go into the menu and > Resource > New Resource..
~
9. Type in type PICT and ID 192.
~
10. Paste the picture of the left zapper beam in ResID 192!

NOTE: (If it doesn't paste, go back into the Midnight Mansion Sprites > PICT > 192 > Copy it, and try pasting again.) (With Rezilla, of course)

I hope this works.  Undecided  

It should, I've seen this problem before, and fixed it with this.
Best of luck.

And if the above solution doesn't work send me your mansion file at my e-mail

AJDuchesne AT G mail DOT com  (All one word, and AT = @ and DOT = . , can't use my real address here because a spammer may pick it up)

and I may have a look at it and see what I could do. I have seen this problem with my mansions, but only when I've been messing with the graphics files to do my custom graphics. I don't know why you've got it, but I could take a look.

I do recommend trying my above solution first, of course.

And I promise I won't send the mansion to anyone, or anything like that, I don't do that sort of stuff. I just want to help you out.

Thanks for all the solutions, guys!
I'll get to work soon as I can. Right now I am kind of torn between some dental problems and no small amount of "serious" work. But I'll let you know soon if anything helped!

Thanks agan,
Leo
