The forums is run by three administrators. Read here who they are and what you may (and may not) expect from them.

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.

This will be repeated monthly from now on.  We will remove the November trolls after one month.

Have you considered using something like Captcha - I think there's a YABB mod for it, that generates an image with letters/numbers, that users have to extract and add as part of registration to make it more difficult for spam bots to register?

Something like this could still be defeated, but still - it's something...

Thank you for this information.  I thought this was a part of the forumsoftware and since it is not included in YABB I thought it was unavailable.  We will certainly check this.

Found it!  It was there all the time, just located where we, the admins, haven't looked for it.  I have activated it so from now on we should be more or less hacker-free.

Hopefully, this will make a little difference, even if it only slows the rate of growth for these type of accounts. Unfortunately, this whole thing is kind of like an arms race. As tools are developed to defend against spam bots, other tools are created to defeat these defenses.

It's a real shame that things like this are necessary.
