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.

Pling sound when changing rooms

Hi!
Great to get a new mansion from Matt and Joe!

I get a pling sound when changing rooms. Why is that?

Did you swap the graphics and sprites files?

No, I didn't! I am waiting for the version that one doesn't have to swap anything, like some in MM1.  Smiley  I find it to much of a hassle to swap back and forth.

It doesn't make a sound in every room though. I just found out that entering room 16703 doesn't pling!


I have in MM1 played custom mansions without changing to new graphics and they didn't make any protesting pling sound.

I think that only works for background and music, not graphics and sprites.

No, I don't agree. I have played Dominator without changing the to the custom sprites etc. and it didn't pling at all.

I have played on in Ghosthunter and it seems that is is mostly in the beginning where there are are black background parts in the rooms where it makes pling sounds.

I just finished the mansion without switching the sprites and graphics files. rose, I got that sound throughout the game at various spots, but the game didn't crash or anything.

Fun mansion.

Rose, the designer can only put Sprites, backgrounds and music in folders so the player doesn't have to switch the data files around. If there are graphics and/or sound files that need switching, you must switch them on your own because there will never be a version where you don't have to.

Anthony, the mansion doesn't work when switching the graphics and sprites. I get an error message.

I also get the sound going from room to room (most of the time) - with the original MM sprites and graphics. I can't use the Ghosthunter set because of an error message. It's the sound a key makes when an action cannot be taken - if that makes sense!
