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.

So Vern! Whenever Insectoid is released in the next few days, what shall become of the forums? There is going to be a forums for Insectoid, yes?

I think it'd be best if there was another forums for Insectoid, and you'd select Midnight Mansion forums or Insectoid forums when you click the forums button on the main page. =D

Dividing this forum up would be too complicated I'd think, seeing we have so many subforums. I'm not a big fan of have *ever* single mansion have a subforum, because we have so many mansions. But it's okay. =P

Congrats, Vern....on having your Insectoid game finished !! (It has put your attention away from the MM Expansion for long enough anyway  Cheesy  Wink  Wink .....!).

Usually I'm not a fan of those kind of games....but it looks very interesting.

As for Wingy's comment:

I do think (too) that we should NOT mix up the MM forums with a forum for another game, not even if Vern designed it.  Also I'm sure Insectoid "deserves" a forum of its own, rather than a sub-forum here or something.

I could also envisage that it'll be an entirely or at least partly different "clientele" that will become Insectoid hardcore fans, than our average MM fiend here....  and while they (as everybody else) are of course always welcome here, they should be because of their interest in MM and Insectoid can be discussed in its own pages.

My 2 euro cents worth, only.   Cool   Smiley


PS:  Vern, I didn't forget that you asked me to send you Trigger Island Re.  I'd just thought that I "give you a bit more time" in that important final phase of Insectoid..... but I'll send it to you within the next 2 days por so.

No worries folks, I'll be doing separate forums. But this means, for one thing, that if I ever upgrade forum software, I'll have to do it *twice*, once for each separate forum. And upgrading THIS forum software is a royal, huge pain. Took me 2-3 days last time I did it. Should be easier now -- doable in 4-8 hours, but it's still very un-fun.

I think what I'll do is just offer FTP access to anyone who wants to perform a forum upgrade here for the MM forums. So anyone who is technically inclined can have access to the MM forums directory and go at it. (I would of course recommend making a complete backup first.)

Um, I tried to change a key ("space" to be replaced with "<>" right next to the shift key on my German keyboard) and a little console window appeared out of nowhere to signal some error. I could close this window and resume playing (but still with the "space" key) with no trouble at all though.

Great game btw  Cool

It sounds like on your German keyboard, you found the equivalent of ~ on the American keyboard, which brings up the console window.

If you try the official 1.0.0 release (released today), you should find it asks you for a password if you push this key, since I don't want most players mucking around in the console. If it's a problem, I could add another control to the Keyboard settings dialog for "Show Console" so you can set it to a different key, allowing you to use <> for something else. As it is right now, you can't use that key for a game control. Think I should change this?

I don't really mind not using that one; having to avoid one single obscure key is not a big restriction  Grin It was just the console popping up suddenly was very scary!. I will try another pair of neighbouring keys!

My High Score for Hard Mode is currently 638187.  Who else has downloaded and registered the game?  What's your high score?  I'm curious!
